New release is out!

There was a bug where the cursor could leave the screen on multi monitor setups in Fullscreen and WindowedFullscreen modes.

It should be able to leave the screen on bnet (that's intentional), but once in game the cursor should be locked.

Hi, @fois
We made some tests with aqrits' ddraw versions and scaling:

1-st image is war2 windowed mode with your version 154 (based on test2), scaled to 800x600:

2-nd image is war2 windowed mode with aqrit's test4 version scaled to 800x600 (by 3-rd part software as it doesn't support scaling itself).
Interesting thing is it uses such smooth scaling on intel videocards only, but not so smooth on nvidias.


And we can see: test4 support smooth scaling, but your version have some distortions.
So:
is that possible to make your 154 version as beautiful as test4, keeping it based on test2?

Would be great to use such smooth scaling on your ddraw, also being kept compatible with all computers, even with no shader support

Yeah it's possible to have cubic/bilinear scaling without hardware acceleration, but it's very slow and might cause online games to lag if someone with a slow computer is trying to use it.

I think it's better to use cnc-ddraw instead for scaling, it can do smooth scaling and if no hardware acceleration is available it will automatically switch to nearest neighbor scaling.

oh, I do some testing...

Already noticed that you can't alt+tab when the bnet chat window is showing (unless you have stretching enabled, then it works).

Well done for keeping up with support :thumbsup:

This ddraw is the only reason a large amount of the community can play WC2 on their OS. Your hard work is appreciated.

@Available Let's continue to talk here so we don't spam the war2combat release thread.

"AntiAliasedFonts=Yes", you can enable it if you prefer the look of it.

Oh, lol, quick response :)
I personally prefer real fonts w/o additional processing, but some people (Vity, Ragner, etc...) will happy to use this option.



No need to have multiple ddraws just for that

Still need some option to restrict switching to fullscreen and back,
to block accidental mode switching when someone prefer to play all the time windowed OR all the time fullscreen.
something like:
"AllowModeSwitching=Yes/No" or "IgnoreAltEnter=Yes/No"




...
1.6.3 same bug as previous test:
when finally switches to desktop (by "windows" key or some another hotkey)
and clicked on _another program icon_ in taskbar, somehow that switching back to war2, not to clicked program.
but i clearly NOT clicked on "war2 button" in taskbar.


Why need to use test4 behavior for Alt-Tab?
1.6.2 version was better in this part.




I added "IgnoreAltEnter=Yes" as a new .ini setting.

I want to keep the cnc-ddraw/test4 Alt-Tab behavior since it doesn't rely on the original system ddraw and is more future proof. Win7 did the same for me, when I Alt+Tab out of the game to another window and then I close the other window Win7 will automatically switch back to the game even though I didn't click on the game. I added a workaround for it now.
