Ok, you've managed to completely confuse me. What ReactOS code are you talking about? Which source file?

Code: Select all

The ACPI code for turning off the computer is used in Windows Millennium and Windows 2000 and up. And that code is still not found. I'm working on it. ACPI is (partitially) available in Win98SE too :wink: I can poweroff the system and even use suspend-to-ram (the board has no apm support!) with it....

To my little knowledge, Win 98 does not have ACPI control, so Poweroff.asm can not be a dissasembly of Win.com To your knowledge, Windows 95 up to Windows 98 SE has the exact power off code as the one in ReactOS, and it is not ACPI. It's called APM and was first only working on laptops. Then the AT...

The problem with open source is that people who can't do anything major, just want to play with the good stuff (the cream over the cake that is visible etc...) A perfect examle of it is the power off text game you all are talking about. You want to be part of the project somehow, so why not have you...

I dont know anthing about programming etc but can you disassemble/decompile? (even if it was illegal) (how would they know heheh) their product look at the code see how they implemented somthing then write your own code that basically does the same thing from scratch? You can decompile or use other...

That answers my question.

I have one problem with ReactOS

I can't seem to understand what's legal and what's illegal. Some stuff is very close to Microsoft Windows NT, and some stuff is even closer! If I want to write something for this great OS, how do I know when I'm breaking the law? If I want to implent GDI+, the first way to do so is to disassemble th...

Windows 9X is a very nice operating system. I love the way it's fast and you have full control of it. .... That's my words about Windows 9X. For other words, I'm sitting on Windows XP, and I miss the old days when windows was simply fast and didn't have so much HTML crap and launch bars! But what c...

Tnx for the replay, but it's not exactly what I'm searcing for. What I mean is how to actually code the gui system (my pathetic attemp here: http://www.hot.ee/freebasic/wizgui01.rar ) tnx I don't have all the SDL libraries to test it. But I know what you mean. I only know the window managing on a n...

I have never been a big fan of the NT stop screen. it got a little bit better when it used BOOTVID.DLL for scrolling, but still it's way to bad designed. no word-wrapping, and no nice layout. I'm willing to work on a Windows 9X blue screen, because I like the SHELL Messagebox much better. however I ...

Re: Gui coding

Hello, I'm new to this forum -and ReactOS looks great. I have a question though, not directly related to ROS, but: I'm very interested in GUI programming (I mean actual widgets, windowing engine and this kind of things) But I can't find any usuable information about the matter. Maybe you guys know ...

Windows 9X is a very nice operating system. I love the way it's fast and you have full control of it. I hate to see you complan about it when i know you can't do a better job yourself. Yes, Windows 9X beats ReactOS in speed, in drivers, and in multimedia. The fast access to graphics, and the fast ac...
