Old-Style Boot Menu

Recommended Posts

Old-Syle Boot Menu

Description:

This is one of those boot menu's that you get when you are working with pre-NT software and Linux in many cases. Controls are very simple: Use the Up and Down keys to navigate, and Enter key to select. All files necessary are included, I am using DirectX to draw this.

Another special GUI, just like the MD5 app. I currently do not have any applications for this so I am giving out the source code.

Edit: I forgot to prevent the selected menu to go out of range.. so you'll going to have to add that yourself. Or maybe I'll do it when I feel like doing it later on.

I found that this is supposted to be a great program for 'old style boot menu' but...it is not working. I really wanna try this out...I hope I dont get slammed for bringing this topic back...but I think its pretty cool...im using .10/beta version of Autoit...maybe it just needs to be converted so that it will work with .10? Thanks!

The problem is (atleast that is what I encountered) is that it is running off the d3dx9_33.dll file that is actually a DirectX 9 dll.

If you are running DirectX 10 then you will encounter a message that says that d3dx9_33.dll is missing. You can download the

file for a few different reliable sources. I had to download it myself cause I am running Vista and DirectX 10 is only supported

on the system. All I did was copy the file to the Windows\System directory and then I was able to see it.

Swift, what is the problem that you get or are having when you run the script?

First I get the error mentioned above...the "direct X" error i guess...then this:

Line 189 (File "C:\Do......\OldStyleBootMenu\A2D.Au3"):

return A2DCreateDevice($hParent, $nWidth, $nHeight, $nFormat, $nDeviceType, $nWindowed, $nSwapEffect)

return ^ ERROR

Error: Unknown Function Name.

Replace the Up and Down functions with:

Func _Up()
    If $sSelected = 0 Then
        $sSelected = $sSelected
    Else
        $sSelected -= 1
    EndIf
EndFunc  ;==>_Up

Func _Down()
    If $sSelected = UBound($sMenuOptions[0]) -1 Then
        $sSelected = $sSelected
    Else
        $sSelected += 1
    EndIf
EndFunc  ;==>_Down

I know the _Up() works, but _Down() doesn't...
