Re: EPIC WIN!

Banished Impressive, didn't know rOS could manage some full 3D games :o , is it using DirectX or OpenGL? Does not matter. We use WineD3D , thus redirecting all the DirectX 8/9 calls through an OpenGL shim. That way we can use OpenGL with hardware acceleration in things like Virtualbox and still get...

Re: EPIC WIN!

It's always cool to see my translation, icons and fixes in other people's screens. Neat.

Re: we need reactos-update

What I do —and this is more of a nifty feature while dev'ing— is to use .VHD-format disks in Virtualbox and mount (called attaching in Win32 jargon) it on my host system by using diskpart inside of a batch script. If you prefer to do it graphically, there's a secretive option in the Action menu of d...

Re: THE HAPPY END! SHELL MERGED!

I'm so happy! :) This is an historic date for the project. Compiling as I write this.
So many hours of research and coding put into it by so many knowledgeable people.

And this is just the beginning! There is a long way to go.

Re: Blog: Network development branch

https://www.reactos.org/node/918 Maybe things will turn out to be mutual beneficial, like with Wine? Symbiotic is always good. The people at lwIP get a good stress-testing method that will put the library at its limits —so defects will surface— and ReactOS offloads loads of work. As always... less ...

Re: XP-like icons

Tango icons are excellently made, tasteful, well thought out, neutral and fit with the general UX of ReactOS. If you want to enhance the icons try to adhere to their guidelines. They are not flashy, but utilitarian. For example, "I generally find the default My Computer icon ugly; I want to make a r...

Looks like pschweitzer is sorting out the NTFS bugs at a good rate and now directory listing sort of works. Pretty impressive if you ask me! This is unbelievable!

Re: Shell Development Contract

Yeah, I haven't seen much progress from Giannis Adamopoulos. Not more than ten commits since may. I'm a bit disappointed about this. I know that the shell is huge, and having a working explorer_new is hard because of having to juggle with undocumented functions, flags and all that. But he doesn't lo...
