I do not reproduce...

Have you tried with the "nightly build" ?

comment:4 by HoraK-FDF@…, 5 years ago

mmh I'm new to gitlab can you please give me a link to there? I have tested grafx2-win32-2.6.2529-issue45-win32 and there its still that way.

comment:5 by Thomas Bernard, 5 years ago

grafx2-win32-2.6.2529-issue45 is recent enough.

Thank you for the links and yes seems down. Is it possible to add the zip versions on Because every time installing grafx2 when only testing is needed wastes much time.

comment:7 by Thomas Bernard, 5 years ago

@Horak-FDF :
zip versions are added to
Do you reproduce with latest build ?

comment:8 by HoraK-FDF@…, 5 years ago


its still not working in version grafx2-win32-2.7wip2709-win32.

I just tested with the win32/win32 2.7wip2709 version on a Win7 machine and using the keys to incr/decr foreground or background colors works as intended. The outline of the palette index selected are updated correctly.

maybe you have a special configuration for your palette display ? could you attach a screen capture ?

Received by email :

I updated my old version of GrafX2 (2.0 beta from 2012) to the latest (2.7wip2744). I noticed that the color selection rectangle disappears when I change a color using keyboard shortcuts: [ or ]. I tried the earlier version but same thing happens. It makes the work very difficult as I can't see which color I'm actually on.
After some experiments I discovered that the problem does not exist only if I choose Menu_ratio = 0 (do not adapt). However, on my full HD 14" screen the buttons are too small so I prefer to use Menu_ratio = -2 (stretch by x2 maximum). And then the problem occurs.
The old version has no problems with it. Can this be corrected please?

I now reproduce with the win32 API version (but not the SDL one)

comment:13 by Thomas Bernard, 5 years ago

it looks like it only happens with non separated palette colors
Separate_colors = no in .ini file
