View Full Version : Mouse Trails!! Thought they where gone?
12 March 2002, 11:56
Hi. Running WinUAE v0.8.21R2 under WinXP. WB3.1, Kick3.1. Picasso GFX modes.
I thought the 'Pointer trails' problem was supposed to be "Gone, gone, gone".
Well .... They are still there!!! Doh!
You have just selected wrong resulution mode i think. Maybe u have selected 32bit BGRA.
Try "1024*768 16bit PC".

Yup. I am using 800x600@32bit, but then I like that mode as I can have WinUAE in a window (without having to change my desktop to 16bit colour).
Why cant I use that mode ?
I dont really know, i also get mouse trails in 32bit. Sad but true...

I also have this pointer trails problem in WinUAE 0.8.25.
I too am using 32 bits p96 screenmode in order to have WinUAE in a window (my Windows screenmode is 32 bits).
IIRC, I have to use a special version of rtg.library in order not to have the problem, but even though I use it (I don't remember where I downloaded it, Picasso96 website, I guess), I still have the pointer trails problem sometimes : most of the time, my workbench boots with no problem, but the trails appear e.g. after I quit a whdload game or such (when the workbench screen is reopened). It also sometimes happen when the workbench boots, but more rarely.
So, is there a way to resolve this problem apart from using a 16 bits p96 screenmode ?

you need to copy the RTG lib from the winuae/amigaprograms folder to libs:picasso96/ dir on amiga HD :)
This will cure the trials for good... trust me ;)
