SDL?
« on: June 05, 2009, 10:19:45 pm »
I have this "game" ( google "The Powder Toy"), and it is based on SDL (Just like laserboy for windows).

What I wanna know, is if there is any way to make the window bigger? I think I remember there was a feature that came with laserboy that let you resize the window. Any idea's?

yes there is .. kinda
http://powder.unaligned.org/faq.php

You can scale the window by a factor of two: pass powder scale:2. On Linux and Mac OS, this means running it from the command line or a run box - on Windows, this means making a shortcut to Powder.exe and adding scale:2 to the end of the Target line in the shortcut's properties.


BTW i love this game

I'm going to have to check this out. You are the second person who has mentioned "The Powder Toy".

It sounds pretty cool.

OK. It IS very cool!  ;D

This certainly allows one to make some really neat looking stuff! I like the Neutrons!

Uh wow, scale:2 makes it HUGE!

Then again, my eee pc screen is only 8.9", which is probably the problem :(
