Nope, that wasn't working, 'cos the spacing was so large. I ended up with teensy tiny icons, and huge gaps between them.

Regedit : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
"Icon Spacing" and "Icon Vertical Spacing" are now both at -480, which gives a nice enough size.

(No idea why the value's negative.. .. Some idiot at MS probably thought they were being clever.)

Found a new thing to piss me off in Windows 10.

I like SNDREC32 from Windows 95 onwards - yes, I know I can use other tools; like a pencil artist uses pencils and not photoshop - it's his tool of choice.

I use it for editing all my SFX. I took the .EXE from my old machines and put it onto Win 8.XX machine and all was well - it complained about registry issues when first run, but no big deal. Now my 8.XX machine is Windows 10. I'm writing my first proper game in over a year and need to edit the sfx.

SNDREC32 loads up (same registry errors at first), plays sound yada, yada, yada. Try changing the sound or saving it and Windows 10 throws a "Not enough memory" error at me. Not enough memory? are you FUCKING kidding me M$? FUCK OFF! I can run plenty more apps right fucking now and save stuff in them, are you saying that the few extra (or less) kb that my change will make will kill my whole system due to lack of memory?

FUCK OFF!!

Just read about SNDREC32 on Wiki -

{QUOTE]This is a design flaw of older versions of Sound Recorder and officially cannot be resolved except by reducing the amount of available physical memory

So I have too much memory? :/ I haven't increased my memory since Windows 8.XX where it worked fine (it's the exact same laptop).

Anyway, thanks to an unofficial patch SNDREC32 is now working without errors. Sigh of relief

Yep, annoying when old tools start to show their age, isn't it!
I'm still not 100% happy with PaintShop Pro X7, which when compared to PaintShop Pro 7 (eg, 10 versions earlier) seems pretty much damn-near identical, except slower and more bloated..
Oh, and the colourise tool doesn't colourise properly.. I've had to recolour my sprites by hand.. Grrr...

Thing is, the tool isn't showing it's age - with the patch it works perfectly. And it's still better than the SNDREC they included with Windows 8.XX.

Still funny, but only because it's true!

PaintShop Pro v7 started working, again, today.
I've been testing it every week or so, but it kept doing that same odd quitting thing.

Today, for some reason, it's working *mostly* fine..
The capture button's broken, which is a shame, but otherwise it loads up in a fucking instant, instead of the 2 minutes that PSPX7 takes, and also closes without giving me a fucking nagscreen asking me to upgrade to X8. (Seriously, Coral, it's taken me over a decade for this last upgrade.. And the upgrade is shit!!! Not gonna happen any time soon!!)

The only issue I ever had with psp7 on win 10 is that often some of the shortcut keys don't work well. For example I can't increase the colour depth via keyboard and have to use the menus.

Twain driver's working after today's updates.

Slowly but surely, Microsoft are actually fixing things.
It's a festivus miracle!
