Re: Cannot change password after 1-time login

I requested a new password because I forgot my old one, but I was not given a new password. Instead, I was given a link that would let me log log in for 1 session only.

Cannot change password after 1-time login

I selected the "Request a new password", and that sent me an email with a link for a 1-time login. When I tried to change my password, it asked for my current password. The problem is that the email with the 1-time login did not actually provide a password, so I have no idea what my current password...

Re: No email notification for wiki watchlist

The issue isn't so much as keeping up with ReactOS versions as it is knowing when we can officially start record-keeping of application compatibility testing. As a heads up, I used to get email notification back with the old website, particularly when the 0.3.14 test page was created and whenever it...

Re: Cannot Remove ReactOS from my computer

I know you said you didn't like Linux, but just temporarily have you tried putting Parted Magic on a USB drive? It's what I use to manage hard drive stuff if I need something independent of the OS on said hard drive(s).

No email notification for wiki watchlist

As a tester I am particularly interested in the "Tests for 0.3.xx" pages and have set up my "raw watchlist" to have future versions (Tests for 0.3.16, Tests for 0.3.17, etc) even though the wiki pages don't exist yet. This was so that I could get notification of when those pages DO get created and n...

Re: EPIC WIN!

Dang it, I didn't know this topic existed, otherwise I wouldn't be waiting for 0.3.15 to re-test a bunch of stuff I have. And apparently many screenshots from this thread have even been added to the homepage... Full Disclosure: I always wanted my screenshots of a visual novel working on ReactOS to b...

Re: ReactOS Youtube videos

Actually, if you do upload to YouTube, the codec used DOES matter. Because they do encode everything, for the best results, you should upload the highest quality possible. Assuming you don't care about the large filesize, any compatible lossless codec is perfect for this. Just remember, lossy -to-> ...

Re: Nearest neighbor resolution upscaling

Wait wait wait... I never was talking about overriding the resolution of an individual window or programs. I'm talking about the main resolution setting that you set in the Windows control panel under "Display" and/or the Desktop properties and stuff - which is commonly changed on the fly temporaril...

Re: Nearest neighbor resolution upscaling

Why WOULDN'T it? A good example are visual novels - most of them use the 640x480 or 800x600 resolutions. On most modern higher-DPI LCD screens, a windowed 640x480 program window (especially for heavy reading), is SMALL . So in many cases, you have no choice but to run fullscreen if you want to actua...

Re: Nearest neighbor resolution upscaling

I don't know about you, but normally the aspect ratio IS preserved when displaying a non-native resolution.

Heck just today I was at Walmart trying a laptop with Windows 7 and a 1600x900 display, and setting it to 800x600 put black bars on the sides... and this was crappy INTEL integrated graphics.

Nearest neighbor resolution upscaling

Another thing that really annoys me is upscaling filters that are on all the time. 640x480 should look great on 1280x1024 due to 4:1 exact pixel mapping, but unfortunately this isn't the case usually. Similar to the cleartype issue, the simplest way to know when to do this would be to just calculate...

If/When ROS gets ClearType PLEASE lock it to the native res!

One thing that drives me CRAZY is that ClearType on Windows stays on even after changing to a non-native resolution. In particular, this is really annoying when running something that's only 640x480 or 800x600 in fullscreen. The easiest way would be to just deactivate ClearType when not displaying a...

Re: Congratulations for 0.3.12!

So 0.3.12 actually exists? Imagine that. :P


This means that people have actually played fricken Duke Nukem Forever before this release! XD
