#7405 closed feature request

WINCE: Fullscreen or 800x600 Mode

Reported by: SF/astuermer Owned by: SF/knakos
Priority: low Component: Port: WinCE
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:



Me and many others are using a Siemens SIMpad with HandheldPC 2000 OS. The device has 800x600 pixels, would be fine to play Scumm Games Fullscreen or even as 640x480 Area in the middle of the screen (since the 2x-Scaler currently places the whole playarea top-left, which looks terribly)

Kind regards, Andreas

This is a feature request, not a bug report.

What is the status of this item?

comment:4 by sev-, 18 years ago

Arisme, any idea?

comment:5 by SF/knakos, 18 years ago

Supporting as many different devices and resolutions as possible is a good thing. We'll get on it after the 0.9.0 release.

I guess this is really two requests, right? One for centering the graphics (which definitely sounds like a good idea to me, right?), secondly a request for a scaler to 800x600 (i.e. 2.5x scaler).

comment:8 by SF/knakos, 17 years ago

Correct. After seeing what goes on with non-integer scalers, the support for this maybe delayed a bit. Also the centering blit of the display certainly sounds straight forward but includes stuff such as pointer coordinate translation. The SDL library is in need for some renovation. I'll be tackling it it the near future and perhaps will kill this one as well.

comment:9 by fingolfin, 17 years ago

Hm, the centering is a built-in feature of SDL, I am surprised it doesn't work out of the box on WinCE (it certainly does under Windows and OS X). Maybe the WinCE SDL port is buggy in this regard?

comment:11 by SF/knakos, 17 years ago

Arisme has written a wince specific device (wingapi) for direct screen manipulation (actually I think Vasyl had a hand in there as well), and the shortcoming must be there. I doubt this centering function is handled somewhere else, higher up in SDL. AFAIK one does not signal SDL specifically (e.g. pass an SDL_CENTERSCREEN like flag).

comment:12 by fingolfin, 17 years ago

Actually, yes, there is generic code in SDL to handle it. In particular, the offset_x / offset_y fields in the SDL_VideoSurface are used for that purpose. They are set by SDL_SetVideoMode (in SDL_video.c) if the program requests a resolution that is not directly available (e.g. 640x480) when the request is satisfied by another one (e.g. 800x600).

Without seeing the WinCE specific code, I can't say why this generic codepath is not being triggered.

comment:13 by SF/knakos, 17 years ago

OK, thanks for the pointer. Will check it out soon. Perhaps the gapi driver conveniently disregards any displacement offsets.

added in the latest svn build in the forums. try it out! Also, it would help *a lot* if you can make a step by step doc of how you setup scummvm to work on your device.
