Springtime for ONScripter (20110321)

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Here ya go: ONScripter-EN release (onscripter-en-20110321)

This release fixes a bug causing some programs to always run with “scale” upsizing, and adds some nifty ons.cfg/cmd-line options for handling audio settings (like if you need to tweak for certain hardware or disable DirectSound in Windows).  Take a look at the changelog for more details.

Pie Day ONScripter Release (20110314)

Happy Pi(e) Day!

Aside from the spoils of our ongoing bughunt, the main cool thing about today’s ONScripter-EN release (onscripter-en-20110314) is that, instead of using


in your ons.cfg file, you can now use


which will render a game at the maximum size possible for your screen, while preserving the 4:3 aspect ratio.  Also, scaling routines now use floating-point to calculate sizes & positions, so images should be drawn a bit more accurately.

ONScripter Release (20110305)

Hoorah, a release!

Today’s ONScripter-EN release (onscripter-en-20110305) has a number of bugfixes that we hope will quash some annoying uninitialized variables and memory leaks; it also includes support for Layer effects and additive & subtracting blending in 16-bit per pixel builds (except for the “oldmovie” effect).

A warning for Umineko users: due to a change in how ons-en handles alpha PNGs by default, current Witch-Hunt patches will display some images incorrectly (mostly Character text in the TIPs menu).  If you experience this problem, add the following line to your ons.cfg file:


We’re working with Witch-Hunt to make sure this issue is corrected in future patches.  Meanwhile, don’t hesitate to let us know of any bugs you may encounter!
