Greetings,
I recently (basically 6 weeks ago... but about 3 weeks before that on the drawing code) started coding my own GUI in C. So far, I have resizable and moveable windows, buttons, labels, 3D horizontal bars (hbars), and cascadable menus. I designed the code to be fairly expandable: I added drop-down/cascadable menu support using very minor or basic changes to my GUI's core logic because this GUI is so modular. Everything is based off of binary trees - windows, controls, and the menus themselves. I added FPS code to my GUI one day as a test: 70FPS on my P200(win98), 68FPS on my P500(winXP), and 68FPS on a P4@2.0GHz(winXP). I don't know if the performance is something to be proud of, but I am happy with the results: It's smooth and fast.

I must say youre GUI is very limited. The graphic mode you use is just a standard dos grfx mode. You wont do much with it. LOL

Yes, but you must also take into account that this is my first GUI. I updated the page yesterday with the newest gui program: supporting virtual desktops. Something that I have never seen on another GUI. The closest thing to it is SGI's IRIX multi-desktop where you switch screens - or kde/gnome (same idea). Yeah, I agree that I should go into higher resolution using most likely VESA graphics - but I have already increased the work area 4 fold using the VDesk... Also, a late update includes graphical menus. Last time I checked, Seal2 had those. FEW windows apps have them. It's not something that windows has built-in.

BTW, when you try to download you get a 404 error.

Have a nice day.

well, i guess, good luck, 60FPS isn't terribly fast is it? whats the performance on a typical DOS box(p100 maybe) like?


and what's with that picture and the subtext?

"DOS machine booting up with CD drive support via Win98 bootdisk. Sorry for the glare. The light was bright and the camera was a webcam"

makes it sound like you need the picture to be there, it's a dreadful pic and you should really remove it, and anyway, whats so amazing about CD drive support on DOS that you felt you needed to show us?

60 fps ? Thats a crawl.

In the SEAL3 codebase, I used to get something like 180 when _complete_ redraws happen. Ofcourse, when the dirty-rectangle code is more optimized, you should be able to cross 300.
