Hello :)

I installed the 2.5 32bit on a Vista system yesterday and blockout refuses to save the setup. I unfortunately cannot reproduce this issue on my development machine.
Does anyone experienced this problem ?

Thanks for feedback.
HAve fun with blockout :)

Hi again,

I uploaded 2 new setup programs on sourceforge where the error management has been improved.
Thanks to test them and report any issue :)

Dear Beta-Tester's ,

there might be some problems regarding saving of configuration and replay files under windows7 and up.
the solution for now is to execute blockout 2.5beta with admin rights - to do so, press right mouse button on the blockout icon in the startmenue and select "execute as admin"

Hi,

New setup programs has been uploaded on sourceforge.
I changed the way local data are saved.
From now, local blockout data (setup,high scores and replays) are saved in C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Local\Blockout.

From the Readme.txt:

Code: Select all
How to retrieve your high score and config when moving from release 2.4 to 2.5?
===============================================================================

Uninstal Blockout.
Install 2.5 or newer release.
Launch the game (It should create the Blockout directory in C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Local)
Go to the old blockout instalation directory (which can be the same than the 2.5 release).
Select "replay","hscore.dat","replay.idx","setup.dat".
Move them to C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Local\Blockout.
Note that the Users and AppData directories may be hidden.

Hello, seems that numpad cursor keys have stopped working (they worked in 2.4).

Hello,

Thanks for the report.
Unfortunately I cannot reproduce this issue, the numpad cursor keys works on my Windows 7...

I've just installed Blockout Version 2.5 - It's working perfect.
As I'm using a widescreen-monitor, the image is stretched, when switching to full-screen view.

Is there an option to change to a "non-Default" resolution
1680x1050
1920x1080

Thanks for thinking about this options or adding addiotnal wide-screen resolutions.

Hello Harry,

You're right, the game can only handle 4/3 screen resolution.
I'll add the management of arbitrary screen resolution in the next release if SDL allows me to do that ;).
I let you informed...

Installed on Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

Working perfectly. No longer need the Vista_Start patch I had to use for Version 2.4, and it starts instantly now.

Great work, Jean-Luc, thanks for continuing with this project. There are many of us who appreciate your effort.
