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

Just found these interesting open source audio mixer projects that may help the ROS audio evolving. As always collaboration with 3rd party devs (instead of "stealing" their code) would be great: - http://crystal-mixer.sourceforge.net/ - https://github.com/Klocman/Automatic-Volume-Mixer - https://git...

The community takes a little getting used to, there are conventions as to the right thing to say/contribute &c (just as all communities) but they are a nice enough 'bunch' - I am sure you will be welcome. Be sure to introduce yourself and your ski...

Re: User "blackwingcat" from the msfn BB

Well, some years ago I was very active @ MSFN - https://msfn.org/board/profile/55261-patchworks/ - promoting open source stuff (ROS too, of course). I also lauched an idea to otain "a fully 100% working system since 0.00001 alpha release" that was called: http://www.forart.it/progetti/Opendows/logo....

Why Vimeo? YouTube is perfectly fine.
YouTube doesn't support all CC licenses (= "stole" your contents).

[BREAKING] CERN’s Microsoft Alternative project

The initial objective was to investigate the migration from commercial software products (Microsoft and others) to open-source solutions, so as to minimise CERN’s exposure to the risks of unsustainable commercial conditions. By doing so, the laboratory is playing a pioneering role among public rese...

Re: Should I make a Pinball game for ReactOS?

Why "reinvent the weel" ? It could be more interesting to test existing open source pinball games to ROS, IMHO: https://sourceforge.net/projects/pinballnext/ ...or to port from other platforms: https://sourceforge.net/projects/pinball/ Last but not least, as always, it would be even better to involv...

Re: I think fork Media Player Classic as ReactOS Media Player is a good choice

I think for ReactOS its enough to have two built-in players: mplay32.exe which uses MCI API, and amovie.ocx thingy which uses DirectShow API and runs within rundll32 context. Other more advanced third-party players can be installed from external sources. I barelly agree: it could be better to have ...

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

What about gdipp? Maybe ReactOS can use it's code somehow? https://code.google.com/p/gdipp/ Of course would be great: GDIPP is a replacement of Windows’ GDI text rendering that brings beautiful, anti-aliased text similar to that on OS X and Linux. The project originated as the relaunch of GDI++. Th...

...but MPC needs directshow codecs (that are NOT efficient for the system performances).

There are *ways* better choices, IMHO:
