Start ScummVM. Click Options. Under the GFX tab, set the Graphics mode to 2x. Try again.

Should be easier for you now...

New build: Test please! [Obsolete]

Hi all, As you may know, the normal PocketPC/WinCE port maintainer is unavailable this time around, so I'm trying to fill in for him. As such, I've just done a build for what should be the new 1.1.0 release. Due to pressure of "real life", this is happening very last minute, so there is fairly littl...

Re: Fullscreen

[quote="Cartman316"]I use a HTC HD2 with ScummVM 1.0.0rc1 for WindowsCE. [/quote] That's an 800x480 device. Most games are 320x200, so by doubling the screen size we'll use 640x400 - that's probably what you are seeing. If you enable aspect ratio scaling, then you might improve that to using 640x480...

I did some work on the WinCE ports handling of large screens about a month ago. You should find that new builds cope much better now.

We still won't fill a 800x480 screen, but at least the cursor will be correctly positioned, and the 640x480 that *is* used will be updated a lot faster.

My, how embarassing. The game speedup is my fault. While doing the thumb build, we had to work around a problem caused by a compiler bug in the interrupt handling. In the course of debugging that I raised the frequency of the internal timer from 1000 times a second to 2000 times a second... hence do...

Help needed testing new version of ScummVM for NDS

Hi all, As you're no doubt aware, the ScummVM team is constantly busy behind the scenes improving ScummVM to support new games, new features and fix bugs etc. As a side effect of this work, the memory usage of ScummVM tends to creep gradually upwards - something that makes it harder and harder for i...

Replies: 3

Currently, the NDS version of ScummVM makes no use of the extra RAM at all. The system doesn't even know of it's existence. The extra RAM is somewhat limited in it's abilities, as a) it's slower, and b) it only responds to certain types of reads/writes. Making use of it would certainly not be straig...

Well, we're talking ARM here, which is quite a bit different then a typical RISC PC due to the odd multiplier performance. Yes, the RISC PC is an odditity due to the slow bus it has (the StrongARM card for the RISC PC is a plug in replacement for the ARM6 which it was originally designed with). Any...

My experience with ARM is that when well optimized (IMDCT, synthesis filters, windowing in ASM) Tremor is a little faster then MAD when both are set to > 16 bit precision. Odd. Tremolo is faster than Tremor, and is slower than AMPlayer (on the RISC PC that I tested it on years ago). I'm not sure ho...

In general, in my experience on ARM devices, an optimised Ogg decoder will be about 50-100% slower than an optimised MP3 decoder. Very rough figures.

No idea about flac.

HTH,

Since the VRAM doesn't support 8-bit writes (only 16/32 bit ones), a copy must exist in system RAM. Ah! That's a biggy that I hadn't realised. You estimated it would take 40ms to scale a 640x480 screen to 256x192. I think that's a little optimistic, because we would need to scale in two directions,...

You mention in your earlier post in this thread that the scaler is only scaling horizontally. Would it be too much of a performance hit to add the option of both directions? The source screens for currently supported games on the DS are 320x200, which have to be scaled down to fit on a 256x192 scre...
