Testing...

Jim -

"CTRL-R" does this:

BubbleSound =FALSE;
Music =TRUE;
Volume =1500;
MusicVolume =1500;

Is "Volume" for bubbles and MusicVolume for music?

Also, I notice now that the defaults (CTRL-R) settings are:

FrameRate = 90
LimitFrameRate = TRUE

Am I correct?

Beta 11o was released yesterday (June 12th) at 12:26 AM (CDT). In other words, about 38 hours ago.

I'm not getting email notification of updates any more, it seems.

That probably deserves a new topic, and I'll start one.

I'm getting that tingly feeling that we are getting close to 3.1.

I believe Jim forgot to post the new 11o release in the "Announcing" thread. That's why we all didn't get an email.

Edit - correction. Notification of 11o is in the "Announcing" thread.

Odd.

11o does not display the Statistics on startup. The .scr is named MarineAquarium3.scr

Perhaps that means that it wasn't compiled as a Beta? Doesn't expire?

[I suspect I understand the "notification" issue, but that's why I started a separate thread - it's not really an 11o issue]

I notice that CTRL-R also resets the window size to 748 x 508 and moves it to the upper left quadrant of my screen.

For documentation, what are these settings?

I'm trying to get the Readme right, and I'm asking for a response regarding the CTRL-R function.

Looks about right. Don't sweat the details, it's just a rough draft.

CTRL-R only does that when MA3 is operating in Windowed mode. When MA3 is operating in Full Screen mode, CTRL-R does not do that.

Same as CTRL-C.

Well, since I'm no longer sweating the details,

I don't need to document that.

Thanks for the info though.

There's a ton of stuff that's modal.

Remember the stuff that didn't work in "Screen Saver Settings" but worked elsewhere? Did we ever confirm that all got fixed? (And is still fixed)?

For m and o, hitting the 'space' bar when MA is full screen has caused the simulation to pause. Only by hitting 'F' and going into Windowed mode brings the 'space' bar back to it's 'Settings' functionality. Is that just me?

It sounds like the Settings box is coming up underneath the main screen. This used to be a big problem, but I thought I solved it a few years ago.

Anyone else?
