Well, then I think we can at least help with that, give some ideas, see what he likes, cause the description doesn't need all the technical stuff in it...

Let me make a thread for it, since I don't think normal members are allowed to make topics in the DCS forum.


Good idea, And we can post in the forum, i have done it before.
There is a good chance he has changed things, but used to, only admin could post new topics in his projects section.

Remember when I posted that bug report thread?

P.S. 4
Sure they are allowed! Smile Let me collate those feature ideas a bit:

Variable mouse speed - acceleration with variable acceleration factor? Yup, good idea
gCn on/off option. Definitely
Enable background It's as easy as deleting the ZDCSBG. Meh.
DCS on startup I like it
Enable lowercase Mos def'
Memory protect Meh, I'll probably omit that for now
File list style Maybe in a later DCS release, I don't have plans for listing
Recursive deletion option I'm still resistant to this...

Well, if someone wants the background, but for the time being, wants it off for a bit, but would want it back on a lil later, but not at home...

but it is just a suggestion. Smile maybe for later.

You absolutely must include a place holder option like Save The Whales so that people are still within there comfort zone, when they switch from MOS to DCS. Just Joking

Password protection?

Password Protection I'm considering it - anyone have feedback?

I like it! (the save the whales), but seriously, how about custom cursor?

P.S. 3
I wouldn't see any real point to the custom cursor, though I guess if you enabled a custom cursor, it would look to see if there was that sprite stored in prgmNAME, and could store the value of that to the appvar, couldn't it??

That way, you could go through a "selection"...

That is how I would approach such a thing, if it was possible in BASIC. Wink

Placeholder option - maybe, just to throw people off and make them disassemble it to find out what it does.
Custom cursors If you recall, there was a custom cursor mod for the Doors CS 5 series, and nothing really came of it in my opinion
Well, now that DCS is in app form, there might be more people interested in it. And I don't recall the custom cursor stuff... I guess I might have missed that... >.<

I also think you copied the wrong list, unless you decided against the bg thing again... Smile
Yipes, my bad. This is what I was talking about:

Oh, i think i have seen that before!

P.S. 2
If you are going to make a custom cursor option, it should be from within Doors itself, and not some other modifying program. Those can be such pains IMHO.
Fair enough, how about making the user put an 8x8 cursor and its 8x8 mask in say Pic0, then having a button in options that both copies that into the appvar and sets a flag to enable that cursor?
How about from the DSC Menu? --> Options --> Cursor Editor
I like Foamy's idea! Smile
I could add a cursor editor... hmmm, anyone skilled at ASM feel like making that for me? I don't know if I'd have time to make one myself...

Oh comeon, it couldn't be THAT hard (but maybe Chipmaster could do it?)

No, it wouldn't be hard at all, but I just don't have the patience for it at this point. Smile I suppose I could though. Chip, got anything you're doing at the moment? ^_^
