How to adjust the curve generator's length?

Postby jihnsius » Thu May 31, 2012 11:30 pm

I want to know how to adjust the curve made by the curve generator -- those two red lines with a circle on the end of them? I'm pretty sure I remember being able to stretch those lines out somehow, which made the curve stretch out longer on that side, but I can't remember how it's done. Can somebody help please?

CTRL+8 and CTRL+9.

Are you still using some old DLE version?

I'm using the previous version (pretty sure). I assume it's the last one that doesn't make OpenGL mandatory (or on by default), as it's the last version I can open without crashing before the splash screen.

he is using 1.8.x or 1.9.x or something... I don't exactly remember.

@jinx. You should try updating opengl drivers and try the latest again ^.^

I already have tried that. No luck in the case of DLE-XP.

It's not really a mandatory/on by default thing, it's that the renderer was rewritten to use OpenGL. It doesn't affect the curve generator though, just that there will be no new versions that don't use OpenGL.

jinsi,

why don't you try to install Visual Studio Express and the DLE source code, build DLE in debug mode, launch it in the debugger and see where it crashes? Maybe I can do something about it.

I have also made the features requiring a bit more advanced OpenGL stuff optional, so you can turn these off (if need be by editing dle.ini) and see whether that helps, so try and set "EnableQuickSelection=0" in DLE.ini.
