Re: ScummVM 1.6 problems

Thanks, that fixed the problem with loading the theme. Strangely Load/Save is still disabled in some games, while it worked with an older version of ScummVM even though I've set the path for that as well.

ScummVM 1.6 problems
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I recently downloaded the latest version of ScummVM from OS4Depot. When I start it, I get the following error message on the console:


WARNING: You are missing a valid 'translations.dat' file. GUI translation will not be available!
WARNING: Could not find theme 'scummmodern' falling back to builtin!

It does load with the old style GUI, but Load and Save in games seems to be ghosted out. I suspect there is some kind of path issue. When I check Snoopy output I get a suspicous line:

00109 : scummvm : FAIL = Lock("/usr/local/share/scummvm",SHARED) [56uS]

Looks like it's looking for something in a unix path. Does anyone know of a solution?

OK, sent you an E-Mail with the test code I found on my hard drive but to be honest I didn't have time to check it maybe it's the same as m3x's one, will look at it tonight after work and if it's not doing it the correct way I'll make some test code for you based on the dvplayer code.

m3x's example uses the interleaved YUV422 format, not the planar YUV420 format. I have a test application which generates a YUV420P test bitmap (colour gradient thing) and outputs it on overlay, do you want that? If you need one that displays an actual image, I can make that but you have to wait for it.

@thellier

When decoding video the decoder gives the bitmap in planar format (Y, U and V planes separately). Originally we only had overlay using interleaved YUV422 format so I would convert the planar format to interleaved format in software and transfer it to videomem. It's not an issue to convert the format, but the interleaved YUV422 uses 16 bits per pixel (U/V is shared only for pairs of pixels) while most video codecs are 12 bits per pixel (U/V is shared by groups of 4 pixels, 2x2 areas) so when we implemented YUV420P planar mode it gave a significant performance increase due to the fact that less data had to be transferred to video memory, not because data did not have to be interleaved.

However with planar formats you could have a further speed increase by using DMA hardware to transfer the data. This would not be possible with interleaved formats because DMA hardware can't rearrange planar data to interleaved data.

Awesome. Thanks for that. I see from the code that the U and V planes are interleaved. I wasn't aware of this. That's not how the official format is specified. Fortunately, this isn't going to be a problem, as the plane alignment requirements remain the same.

Hans


It's done that way in the Radeon 2xx driver because it appears to have been some commonly used format (e.g. Y on top, U/V side-by-side below) and I didn't want to differ. As far as the Picasso96 API is concerned it's just 3 pointers with three BytesPerRow values, this gives freedom in driver development so you can physically arrange them any way you want and it will work since the applications will simply use the three pointers and use the three bytesPerRow values to get to other rows.

A portable device running OS4 is exactly what I'm after. If it's e300-based then I hope it will have a decent GPU with hardware video decoding capability that I could use in DvPlayer. That would make up for the slower CPU.

The plugin which comes with DvPlayer has not changed since the last release. The other one you mention is a third party plugin which can play encrypted DVDs. It is up to you which one you use.

@djrikki

The full version of DvPlayer will play AVI and WMV formats as well as the demo version on OS4Depot. The demo version has a requester on startup reminding you that it's a demo and a time limitation as well as no full screen mode but it's enough for an intro video if you want to show playback of AVI or WMV in a nice looking video player.

Showing WarpView is also cool with smooth zoom/fade/3D rotation of your images but requires Warp3D which I suppose is not yet available for RadeonHD cards used on a Sam460.

No WarpView or DvPlayer in list of multimedia apps?

Re: loading digital photographs from camera (GSM?) on SAM440ep
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I have a Nokia 5800 and I can easily download photos to my Sam440 through the USB data cable supplied with the phone. The phone can work as PTP as well as mass-storage (selectable). As long as the phone supports either PTP protocol or mass-storage, it will work without problems. Using mass-storage is best, since I can easily access any file on the phone, this way I can upload music and videos as well as applications to the phone.

Are you sure about this? As it says in stock on amigakit page...
But a nice keyboard it is. Thinking of getting me one myself.

I do wonder when the mouse will be available. If they have one special one for the system.

I like the colour boingball, it stands out nicely. On the other hand, why has none of the other keys been adapted? For instance the "Scroll Lock" key is used in place of the "Help" key under AmigaOS4 on PC keyboards, so the text on that key should have been changed accordingly. Better than nothing but I think this thing still needs a few finishing touches.

440ep vs. 460ex MHz for Mhz, you wont notice any difference apart from where the 64Kb cache comes into play.


Actually, the 460EX has 256k of L2 cache while the 440EP has none. This alone will make a considerable difference in performance at same clock speed. It also has a considerably faster DDR2 memory controller with 3.2GB/s peak datarate while the 440EP's DDR1 controller has 1.1GB/s peak datarate. Then there is the 4-lane PCI-Express slot which has a 4 times higher bandwidth compared to the 66MHz PCI bus on the 440. Together with the 60% higher clock speeds it'll be around 2-3 times faster than Sam440 while costing only slightly more than the Sam440 did when it was released, with the prices hopefully coming down eventually to the same level as current Sam440 prices.

I think the Sam460 could have a considerably bigger market than the Sam440, because the performance of the 440 and the fact that you could at best only use ancient PCI gfx cards in it put a lot of people off, but the 460's performance should be more than enough for the needs of the average user out there who is not planning to use the machine as a render farm or anything extreme like that and you can use the latest modern gfx cards with only driver availability limiting which cards can be used.

The Radeon 9250 certainly has accelerated decoding for MPEG videos (such as DVD), but I don't have any info/documentation on how to make use of it. If anyone has it, please send it to me

@tommo1975

Limitations of the OEM (AOS4CD) version are:

- No AVI support
- No WMV support
- GUI is not skinnable

I'm still working on it, yes. There are a number of new features coming in the next release, and I also have to look into a number of things reported, such as the issue with AVI playback performance on Sam systems. A new version of avcodec.library is very much needed as well, I've already contacted the maintainer of it (Csaba Simon) asking if he could put a new version together based on the latest libavcodec and he started working on it.

Yes I'm back in NZ and kind of settled :) I've recently become a father as well, so it's been a busy year. Drop me an E-Mail and we'll sort something out, don't use PM on forums as I don't have time to visit the forums very often these days.

Re: Failure to register DvPlayer

@alfkil

I understand that you were upset, I would have been too... The way it works is that when someone registers, Reg.Net sends me a notification E-Mail with the details of the person who registered, and I have to send the registered version of the program to the E-Mail address provided. Sometimes it happens that Reg.Net does not send me a notification, and then the buyer complains to them, and then they send me a notification. In your case there was no such notification sent to me when you registered and also no notification was sent to me when you complained to them, which I find unaccaptable service and I have already written them a complaint as well.

Anyway, to further compensate for your troubles, you have been awarded a free registration key for WarpView.

Sorry for not getting back to you earlier, I've been away with family during the holidays. Basically Reg.Net really screwed up something for you because others have registered back in November/December without problems. I'm very upset with Reg.Net not notifying me even after you contacted them and I still have not received a notification or registration fee, however I sent you DvPlayer because I understand you must be really upset by now, and I'm going to step on the toes at Reg.Net personally...

Really sorry about the inconvenience...

Re: Problems with DvPlayer and monitor drivers on SAM

@alfkil

The problem with LoadMonDrvs is very puzzling, especially if it also happens when booting from CD. A couple of ideas:

1. You could try to disconnect your Hard-Drive and boot from the CD that way, to ensure that nothing from the installed system on the Hard-drive is loaded when you boot from the CD.

2. Did you try to put LoadMonDrvs in the user-startup as well?

3. What if you put 'LoadMonDrvs FROM devs:Monitors/' in there, does that not help?

About the DvPlayer issue, do you get the freeze when seeking in a file which is on your hard-drive, or only actual DVDs?

Re: OWB 3.17

Not too shy to talk


3.17 is working fine here, but it's eating all the RAM in my microA1 in no time, is that normal? It's got 256MB of RAM, and when I start OWB and just open GMail in one tab and amgians.net in another I'm down to about 24MB of free RAM.

Edit: Apparently when it runs out of RAM, I get DSIs as well, instead of "Out of Memory" messages.
