Shanghai and Multivue

Shanghai and Multivue
From: ISC To: ALL

I remember some discussion about this before, but I am having trouble
with Shanghai in Multi-vue. Shanghai works fine in a 40 x 24 graphics
window, but will not draw the windows in Multi-vue. I get an error 201
instead. How can the path be different in Multi-vue if I am using the
same diskette to load the game outside of Multi-vue and it works? What
paths are different?

    It does work. Took me a while too. I forgot to reset the exec dir
    under MV and my path to the ICONS in the AIF had to be changed to
    fit my system. Running under shell 2.1 my path is to a second hard drive.
    MV needed to adjust for my setup.

    P,

    Thanks for the reply. I did reset the exec dir in MV and I also did
    change the AIF to point to the icons directory. Shanghai is in the
    “Games” directory which is a sub-directory to the CMDS directory. If
    I try to run Shanghai with CMDS as exec and /d0 as data dir, I get a
    216 error. If I use the games dir as exec and data dir Shanghai
    draws the dragon logo and fails with a 201 error. While running in
    a graphics window outside of MV, I use the same diskette and run /d0
    as data and CMDS as exec and shanghai works fine. What am I missing?

    Just for grins, try moving Shanghai to another directory NOT “under” the
    CMDS directory.

    Thanks, Frank, but, I did that too. The logo screen vef screen is painted
    and then I get a 201 error.?! Still no problem on a graphics screen without
    M-Vue. I am running a 6309 and my usual boot diskette is PowerBoosted, but
    the M-Vue disk is not. Could this be a reason?
    I have also patched the Windint module in M-Vue with the MV2 patches from
    the sig, but M-Vue still runs other graphics ok.
    I think I need to ask Earther what paths Shanghai looks for.
    Thanks for the reply again, Frank.

    I don’t think running a non-boosted 6309 would be a problem, but you could
    try it, I guess.
    The Shanghai patch may need to run from its own disk or something strange
    like that. Do you have any other processes running when you run Shanghai
    without MV? Could be that MV takes up to many system resources….

    Make sure that you have enough available windows, too. Shanghai needs either 4
    stem memory. Good luck!
