Re: CSB potential update

I'm using win7 home premium which has been updated within the last several months (I'm a bit behind but certainly not more than a year) DX11 is installed and the "d2d1.dll" file is located on my drive deep within the windows folder. I have installed games and 3D apps which may have updated other thi...

He's looking for more suggestions and is interested in CSBWin allowing you to select the dungeon.dat and graphics.dat files at start so you don't need to mess with anything if you want to play DM, CSB, Conflux, etc. also wants to remove the RGB555/RGB565 code as true color is universal at this point...

So I don't have the code yet.. he's been distracted by other things. I do however have the updated exe for CSBwin if anyone wants to try it.

The Reply: I tested it with the playfile.log and it played through to winning the game, so all seems to work. Though that took longer than expected due to having to figure out that only 7zip is able to unzip the archive. The Direct2D changes require Windows 7 or higher, so that's probably not what y...

Some information and questions from the person doing the updates: Out of curiosity, is there a reason it's not on GitHub?

Not a clone Bit. This is just an update to the currently available CSBwin code to allow it to work on modern machines. Correcting DPI and aspect ratio, fixing lag issues that prevented it from working on my surface device for touch. Also aligning and scaling the view to fit the window. In addition t...

Re: CSB potential update

Not a mistake. CSBwin being the closest to all the versions of DM available, for obvious reasons, was the preferred version. The goal here is just to update a few parts of the code to adapt to the current tech, like my Surface3 . Some of these changes were done last night already, and really only ap...

Would anyone notice and/or care if CSB win had smoother mouse, scalable window, high DPI (it's blurry otherwise), and work with touch?

yep, the good ol' days.. This got pretty far before we gave up on it.
