Re: Read this if you've found software useful to ReactOS

In Windows and Reactos, only 1 keyboard layout is assigned to every keyboard plugged. So it's not possible to have 2 keyboards with different language layouts, like 1 keyboard for qwerty and 1 for russian. They're either all qwery or all russian. I didn't find a Windows program that directly allows ...

The Defense Intelligence Agency uses ReactOS

The US Defense Intelligence Agency uses ReactOS. Well not the whole DIA and not all ReactOS, just the logo. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/56/Seal_of_the_U.S._Defense_Intelligence_Agency.svg/200px-Seal_of_the_U.S._Defense_Intelligence_Agency.svg.png https://en.wikipedia.org/w...

Re: Installation Reactos en graphique

Le livecd n'est pas fait pour installer Reactos, le programme d'installation est juste là pour réserver un endroit pour plus tard quand ça sera possible. Le seul moyen d'installer Reactos pour le moment c'est en démarrant sur le bootcd. Reactos est en alpha, ça marche pour l'instant mieux dans une m...

Re: GOG Games fail to install !!!

I have tested installing a few games with a recent nightly build 0.4.8. The games don't install but I don't think they ever installed in the past. I tried with smaller games, usually there's a message telling it can't unpack or run a file, with some installers it hangs. I haven't really tried to fin...

Re: Ecran noir après "Loading boot drivers..."

Dans le sujet avec la liste des changements de la version 0.4.7 les développeurs disent que c'était prévu qu'on puisse booter avec une clé usb dans la version 0.4.7 mais que finalement il va falloir attendre la version 0.4.8. Sinon il vaut mieux prendre la version bootcd que livecd, ça prend pas lon...

Re: EPIC WIN!

Artrage 4, the installer hangs but if you zip the directory from windows it works. I don't have later versions but they don't officially support windows XP so I don't know if they'd run.

Re: EPIC WIN!

Using the software renderer SwiftShader from the other thread, I managed to play Dustforce (drop the dll in the same directory). It ran at 1 fps in Virtual box, it was too hard to play so I copied my savegame from Windows to be able to get out of the tutorial levels. https://www.reactos.org/forum/vi...

Re: SwiftShader 3.2 nologo for ReactOS

This topic is in the wrong section of the forum. The dll looks useful, there's a chance to run more programs and fill the epic win thread. I tried the dll and I was able to start Moment of Inspiration in Virtual box (the first time, I had to deactivate 3d acceleration, I'm not sure if it's relevant)...

Re: 0.4.5 stuck before desktop with virtualbox

The bootable CD needs to be in the primary slave and the hard drive the primary master. At least the bootable cd needs to be primary something. It took me time to find out too. It's written somewhere in the wiki but it's well hidden. A few other things can cause issues in recent versions of Reactos ...

Re: [0.4.5] previous keyboard settings ignored after reboot

I think the issue has been reported here https://jira.reactos.org/browse/CORE-11785 I'm not sure that it's a problem with rebooting because if you add other keyboard layouts and exit the keyboard layout program and reopen it, apparently it's already reverted to the previous default layout even thoug...

Re: Le clavier repasse en qwerty après reboot

Le mieux c'est de prendre la version boot cd de Reactos et de l'installer en français plutôt que de prendre la version préinstallée en anglais. Je crois que c'est un bug qui a été rapporté https://jira.reactos.org/browse/CORE-11785 Quand il est installé en anglais et qu'on ajoute un clavier français...

Re: Empty desktop

The hard drive and the cd/dvd drive must be under the same primary controller. The hard drive is the primary master and the cd drive is the primary slave. I know it's written somewhere in the wiki but it's hard to find the information so it should be clear in the install instructions. PS : btw you'r...

Re: Cannot run ReactOS 4.2/3 after install in VBox5.1.6

I had the same issue and I think the issue is because you need to have the hard drive as the primary master and the cd drive as the primary slave (both drives must be under the same IDE controller) . It's written somewhere in the wiki that your boot drive can't be a secondary drive. In my opinion it...

I didn't find any mention of Meshlab so here are pictures taken in VirtualBox. It seems to work well but for the 1st picture I couldn't remember how to do a good reconstruction in Meshlab so I used another program and imported it. http://meshlab.sourceforge.net/ http://i.imgur.com/zHFBABa.png http:/...

Re: EPIC WIN!

Pixologic Sculptris, a free sculpting program. It needs vcredist 2008. It works very well, appart from the fact that you need to redraw the window after the not working splash screen and after you import a file or save as. It also crashes if you press Ctrl-Z or Ctrl-S. http://pixologic.com/sculptris...
