I've figured out the unclickable list thing. There is a band of the screen exactly equal to the yellow text Target...Angle block for the shift-click target where it's not possible to click in the pilot list. Still no resume on scrub release!

Aha! Good spot. That I can fix. I think. It's because the invisible block I render the Target...Angle text in is fairly wide to allow it not wrap, and that is impacting the pilot list. I will need to either render it under the pilot list or move the pilot list over a bit. The workaround, until I fix it, is to select a pilot by click the right hand side of the button.

This, I'm afraid, rubs me up the wrong way. Perhaps you're not coming across as you intend, but from where I'm standing all I can say is: Entitled much? Fuck right off sunshine - and take your exclamation marks with you.

If you read my posts from further back, namely here:
viewtopic.php?f=37&t=8314&start=60

You will see I already addressed this, with:

Edit:
Resume play on scrub.. I can get it to work ... but when doing so, even if you still have it in focus it will tick up with game time - when what we really want is to pause it on click, allow drag and then unpause on release. And I'm afraid I can't really be bothered to wire in extra event handlers for those as the slider doesn't appear to have native ones. Yes, it's probably easy, but I would have to spend some time googling it to work it out ... so no.


Sorry (well, not really) if I come across a bit angry - but I have spent literally *thousands* of unpaid hours writing code for ACG, creating tools etc.. entirely on my own free time. And when someone comes to me brandishing exclamation marks because some pet feature they want hasn't been implemented despite my already addressing the feature and explaining why it's not implemented .. well I'm really only going to react one way.

"What's that you're doing on your phone?" exclaims Mrs Bunny, half asleep in the darkened bedroom. It was obvious from her tone she was concerned her hubbie was watching things he shouldn't whilst lying in bed.

"Err...nothing darling." Bunny mumbles.

He rolls over, cradling the glow of his mobile phone so only he can see it. It would be futile attempting an explanation for Mrs Bunny, she just couldn't understand that watching tiny pretend bomber formations flying across a tiny half inch English Channel to bomb a tiny little pretend London could be so much more fun than what Mrs Bunny suspected him of. The God-like power he felt whilst watching fates unfurl in his palm was simply awesome, in the true English sense of the word.

"You're a fucking genius Donks" he whispered quietly to himself. "All it needs now is a flake."
"A good landing is one you can walk away from. A great landing is one you can walk away from with your pint intact."

Ah, well GCV doesn't work on a phone, so "nul points" for lying ... and no flake.
10/10 for effort though.

You can always watch radar! Although that is admittedly a little slow...

Like a hornet's nest that's been whacked with a whacking stick and rolled . Not like the Donkenvonkenblitzen I know but then I don't claim to know you, as you were a stuff upper-lip chap until that slug-balancing limp-wristing saluting Chancellor claimed you as his own.

You know it comes with the territory of working for free; if anything people seem to be more demanding of free software than paid for but thats just the lot of a free software developer - the more you give, the more people are going to expect/request of you.

Anyhow Donkenvonkenblizten, take it as a complement that people think you're a Mr Wizard who can charm the software to his own ways, even if they are free-loading feature-demanding bastards but then, that's never going to change.
Cheers,

Paddy

He's to ACG like Justin Beiber is to young teenage girls as far as I am concerned.
