[ logicow @ 05:53 ] Resolution change

Bah, I accidentally uploaded a version with the resolution set to 1280x800.
But I'm going to leave it that way :P

You can change the resolution at the very top of graph.py.
Multiples of 320x200 work best.

[ logicow @ 03:26 ] Platform specific fixes


I added a few platform specific fixes which didn't occur on my side:

1) windows end of lines in pickle files
2) mixer requires a filename on some platform but accepts a file object on others
3) 0xFFFFFF is a color on some platforms but not on others
4) changed starting resolution from 1280x800 to 640x400
(I strongly encourage you to change it to 1280x800 or 1600x1000)

[ logicow @ 01:48 ] Some info


To use lower resolutions:
At the very top of graph.py, there are two lines defining the resolution used.
Multiples of 320x200 work well. (The editor works with multiples of 640x400)

I know I should have used a config file, but I didn't have the time. ;)



Whew. Some problems with the skellington but this should work.

All coding done by Joel Bouchard Lamontagne.
(so he's the one to blame for those horrible clipping issues :)
