Re: Recreating the backgrounds

And another problem I see in the grim fandango animated backgrounds is the rigidity of the animation, they are made by image frames in some 2D right? It would be possible to add more frames so she could get smoother? It would require repacking LAB files. Each animation can be viewed as an image usi...

Re: Recreating the backgrounds

Cool, thanks for the info, but what is necessary to remove it? Original files :) It would be 2 sec job to re-export scenes in high-res & widescreen & full 32-bit colours... but not even DoubleFine has all the source files. Or at least they said so in first "Re-making GF" episode o...

No, those are compression artifacts. But unlike JPG, these are GIF-like. It's called dithering.

Re: Widescreen mod

An update: - I'm not dead, although 2 weeks ago I got stress induced allergy to pollen - Finally got the mod to work, my mistake of already having an several existing residual apps installed besides the mod - Noticed that add-ons don't stretch perfectly, they start ok at the top but they stretch ver...

Re: Widescreen mod

Maybe you could explain EXACTLY what you're doing and we might be able to spot the problem? Well it should be easy, plug n play, right? But it just doesnt work. I downloaded all of Kavehths mods (480, 1080, noScale) on Win XP. Started the 480 version, added Grim directory which contains "wides...

Re: Widescreen mod

I've tried the mod on Win 7 64-bit and I still get the same errors as on 32-bit XP. Johnny, did you manage to make it work?

Re: Widescreen mod

So now it works on XP (and it also runs on Ubuntu using Wine) but on XP every time I try to walk into another room/scene the game crashes with the following message: C++ Runtime Library Program: residualvm.exe File: f:\dd\vctools\crt\crtw32\misc\dbgdel.cpp Line: 52 Expression: _BLOCK_TYPE_IS_VALID(p...

Re: Widescreen mod

Every exe I try to run says: "... it's not a valid Win32 application". Since I'm using Win XP 32-bit, maybe it's trying to use some 64-bit libraries? I Googled the problem and there is a tutorial how to export Win32 compatible applications from Visual Studio 2012+ https://software.intel.co...

Re: Widescreen mod

@ultraneonoirantihero if you want i could compile residual and put up the exe, so you can test the backgrounds yourself, are you using windows? Yes, I use WIN XP. But I also have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS I'm noticing some position mismatch with the addons, the more south you go the bigger the mismatch. I w...

Re: Widescreen mod

The links are broken, but could it be a colour profile issue in Photoshop? Edit: Seems like you sorted it out :) Yes, the sRGB profile messed things up. I removed the pages once i fixed the problem. Been busy at work. Didn't touch those backgrounds. But I have an empty time slot this weekend, will ...
