CoSiNUs brOTHerS inTRO build 2015-04-20

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

After wakillon has provided the SID player code, I thought it's time to write a little intro in old school style with chip music from the old good C64.

 

Here the result (download exe + source): CoSiNUs brOTHerS inTRO

 

I hope it works properly on your PC. If not please report. WinXP is not supported!

 

If your CPU is too weak to display the effects properly, change the line 118 the value 30 to 40

DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SetTimer", "hwnd", $hGUI, "int", 0, "int", 30, "int", 0) 

 

 or a higher value or reduce in line 28 the $iStripes value to e.g. $iH / 3.

Global $i, $c = 0, $j = 0, $f, $l, $k = 0, $m, $iStripes = $iH / 2

 

On my notebook the intro runs at ~30 fps!

 

Have fun.

@wakillon: Merci beaucoup!

The most unusual font I saw used (in a demo at the time anyway) was biscuit or cookie letters something like this.

      In the code that follows, it appears that DllStructCreate() is not allocating memory in
      $tag = 'byte val['&$iLength&']' . . Static Local $tvalue = DllStructCreate($tag) Running the code below, the problem does not show, but it does show in a much longer script: there _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFile only writes about 30K bytes when it should write about 1MB, which it does when the code is
      $tag = 'char val['&$iLength&']' . . Static Local $tvalue = DllStructCreate($tag) It should write about 1 MB.
      I suggest caution in running the code below. On my PC, it caused a second instance of SciTE to appear at the top left of the Desktop, showing only the title bar, with a width of only approximately 200 pixels! Then rebooting the PC showed this at login. Further, double-clicking on the SciTE shortcut on the Desktop showed SciTE in the same way! (After running Regedit, and searching for SciTE, the shortcut behaves normally.)
      I would appreciate help in determining whether or not there is a bug in DLLStructCreate, preferably a way which does not clobber Windows. Of course, It is possible that there is a bug in my code.
      I have made $tvalue Static in the hope that this might make the code run properly. Doing this did not help.
      My code is based on code written by Authenticity and ChrisL.

      Here are two functions to provide pixel-accurate height and width dimensions for a given string.
      The more commonly-used _GDIPlus_GraphicsMeasureString built-in UDF is problematic because it returns the width padded by roughly one en-space (for reasons related to the various ways Windows produces anti-aliased fonts).
      These are AutoIt translations of Pierre Arnaud's C# functions, described in his CodeProject article "Bypass Graphics.MeasureString limitations"
      The first is an all-purpose version that takes a window handle, string, font family, font size (in points), style, and (optionally) width of the layout column (in pixels) as parameters.
      The second, more efficient version is intended for applications where GDI+ fonts are already in use, and takes handles to the existing graphics context, string, font, layout and format as parameters.
      Both functions return a two-row array with the exact width [0] and height [1] of the string (in pixels).

      sometimes!
      Running the script below and entering a for All seems to work every time Running it and choosing 1 for One returns a gibberish string However with the same functions, I have seen it succeed when 1 is chosen, i.e. show the value for the test property ID 0x0103 as OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I have also seen GetOne() succeed when a diagnostic MsgBox() is added,  and when I include my debugging functions, so the problem appears to be a memory location being overwritten, probably in a DLLStruct.. call.
      I know that value OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA is correct from Irfanview and from running GetAll().
      All but one of the _GDIPlus functions were written by ChrisL. I have modified those that returned a DLLStruct object such that they now return an array.
      Both getting one and getting  all involve calling _GDIPlus_ImageGetPropertyItemValue() which I wrote, so perhaps the problem partly lies with ChrisL's functions as modified.
      Suggestions?

      The following code is one of my many attempts to get the value of a string property from an image. It doesn't work. I know that IMAGEDESCRIPTION has a string value.
      In one of my many attempts, I did get the string OLYMPUS .., which I know is correct from IrfanView, but I can't get it again.
      How should I get this string?

      I have found that:
      there are 276 functions in Authenticity's GDIP.au3 (written for 3.3.6.1) that are not in 3.3.14.2's GDIPlus.au3.  there are many constants in his GDIPConstants.au3 that are not in 3.3.14.2's GDIPlus.au3, but there are some that are. So:
      GDIP extras.au3 contains functions that are not in GDIPlus.au3. They have been extracted from GDIP.au3 The revised GDIPConstants.au3 has constants that are duplicates of those in GDIPlus.au3 commented out. They are attached.
      I have done limited testing on 3.3.14.2 with GDIP extras.au3 and the revised GDIPConstants.au3 included.
      I have undertaken this effort in thanks for the help with GDI+ that I have received on this form, especially from UEZ.
      Authenticity's thread is here. For those who do not 7zip, I am attaching his GDIP as a zip file. It contains many examples.
