Revolutions Pack 9.7

Hi Tihiy,

I found a strange bug. If I print something on a Win98 machine without RP,

the result is as expected. If I do the same on a machine with RP, it looks

garbled. I included scans of the two cases.

Note to the MSFN admins: I was not able to upload the images, using

SeaMonkey 1.1.18 or FireFox 2.0.0.4. And dont't tell me to upgrade.

Uploading is a very simple process. It works on even the most ancient

browsers. I can see that you used a very nasty (java) work-around. I

know someone who would call this an abomination. ;-)

Is ClearType enabled? Try removing ctras.dll from your system.

What exactly is natural shell file name sorting?

I think it sorts files in folders by name automaticly?

Anyway, since RP9 is fairly finished now, how about adding skinning for other GUI elements such as tabs?

Thanks for taking the time to make that image. That explains why I didn't notice the change. I've been so used to the way Windows sorts that I automatically number files 01, 02,....10, instead of using single digits. I'll be interested to see what it does with some of my numbering systems. Thanks for another good update.

Very cool feature. First time I saw it was in Akelpad not long ago where it's called sort by integers and I thought it would be rather cool to have that in explorer as well but with little hope it would ever happen. Thanks Tihiy. :thumbup

@Tihiy:

Hi,

Two new configuration menu command in the Polish language:

Don't replace default shell font with Tahoma=Nie zastępuj domyślnej czcionki powłoki czcionką Tahoma

Don't use natural file sorting=Nie stosuj naturalnego sortowania plików

I attach fixed RPConfig.lng file:

RPConfig.zip

Thanks for the file. If anyone else wants RP translation, you need to supply .lng translations (ansi) and .dll translations (unicode).

There's no point in attaching translations strings here (like gerislamico did) since i'm unable to use them in right codepage.

RP9 still lacks proper documentation, has some architecture flaws which require much more time than i have.

The text prints fine with ClearType turned off in RPConfig.

Well, ClearType is not so smooth. Which program you're printing from?

I tried both firefox and Windows WordPad. Is it possible to restrict ClearType to draw on the screen Device Context only?

It is already restricted. Perhaps some driver or program is deceiving it.

- Updating icons to XP/Vista-style, only "My Documents"-icon will be updated, but "My Computer" and "Network Area" icons will stay old.

I guess this doesn't happen with English version of Win98. (I have Finnish-version.)

(Of course they can be manually updated, but of course the program should update them all automatically after changing.)

Hi t6ti00,

if this bug is still boring you, look for the keys:

  • For 'Network Area':
    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Classes\CLSID\{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}
  • For 'My Computer':
    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
  • For 'My Docs':
    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Classes\CLSID\{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}
  • For 'Recycle Bin':
    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Classes\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}

They are overwriting RPConfig settings.

If you find them, you will have to delete them (Backup FIRST!) or at least the related key:

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Classes\CLSID\{ ... }\DefaultIcon

HTH :)
