Bug Reports / Jpg doesn't work
Last post by Qedo - 2024-Jun-18
Hello everyone
I have a problem with GLB steam version 16793 win 10 which didn't exist until 15 days ago and therefore shouldn't be a bug.
It happened that win10 got corrupted and I had to reinstall the OS and also Glbasic by downloading correctly from Steam.
From that moment on, any glbasic program no longer recognizes jpg files, only png and bmp.
   name_jpg$="D:/greg66.jpg"
   IF DOESFILEEXIST(name_jpg$)
      LOADSPRITE name_jpg,10
      DRAWSPRITE 10,0,0
      GETSPRITESIZE 10,ssx,ssy // result ssx=0 and ssy=0
      SHOWSCREEN
      MOUSEWAIT
   endif
With this example program nothing is displayed
Anyone have any ideas?
PS with Glbasic15 no problem everything works

Eye Saver.. I am noticing less issues...

And what kind of monitor do you use? Standard standalone or some laptop built-in, crucial thing is, does it use PWM for dimming/regulating brightness or DC. Personally I get headache from monitors that use PWM.

Thanks - good idea - Just download f.lux and eye-saver programs for windows - see if they help  :)
I will try dark theme too - but in past that didnt help the motion issues...

Another thing (beside larger font with bold style) that I can advise is to use dark theme, as it is gentler on they eyes.
What kind of monitor are you using? Playing with blue light filter/color temperature, brightness and contrast may help a little - like one preset for coding/browsing, other for watching movies/YT.

yes, I dont know if it could something else but when I look at code via the editor I get a little motion sickness headache.
I dont get it in notepad...  ;)
Could also be scrolling rate of the window is not agreeing with me...

So I was wondering if the refresh of the IDE is different too?!

I have sensitivity to high rate monitors too - and cant watch motion-smoothed TVs either etc.  :D  :D

-  trying diff larger font and removed line numbers to see if motion issues improves ;)
