custom window size on Mac OS X

Post by erikjms » Thu May 25, 2017 9:17 am

Hi! Thanks for making such cool things! I have gotten around to messing with pixilang now after having downloaded it a long time ago. So far the example are useful, but I have a question about the window interface.

I am using Pixilang 3.6 on OS X 10.9.5 (Mavericks) on an old MacBook Air, and I cannot get the pixilang application to open in a custom window size. I am asking it for a (modest, I think..) 850 x 680 window, but it only gives me 620 x 449. Is this as big as it gets? I suspect not, since the default config file offers 800 x 600. It won't do that either. :~(

I have a single pixilang_config.ini file in ~/Library/Caches and it is using my colors, so it must be finding the file. There are no other config files. Here is the output I get when I launch it from a terminal window:

Code: Select all

mahcomputer: /Applications/pixilang.app/Contents/MacOS
 $ ./pixilang
sundog_init() ...
/Applications/
/Users/ejms/Library/Caches/
/tmp/
sundog_init(): width  620
sundog_init(): height 449
sundog_init(): done
Language: en_US
SunDog Engine / Oct 22 2016 16:19:26
WM: device start
OpenGL version: 2.1 INTEL-8.24.17. Renderer: Intel HD Graphics 3000 OpenGL Engine. GLSL: 1.20.
WM: screen_zoom = 1
WM: screen_ppi = 256
WM: screen size = 620 x 449
WM: font_zoom = 2
WM: flags SCALABLE OPTIMIZE_MOVE_EVENTS
WM: system palette init...
WM: color theme loading (base colors)
WM: color theme loading (other colors)
WM: initialized
I am also attaching my pixilang_config.ini file in case something in it is useful--the color scheme is funky, but it works for my old, battered eyes. I haven't found any additional pixilang logs beyond the terminal output.

Otherwise, I am having fun peering at pixels in this tiny window. :)

You can't, sorry :) It is not implemented in the macOS version of Pixilang. It only can remember the last Pixilang window size (after you resize it manually).

Ah. OK then.

Time to make up my mind about which computer to put Linux on. Should be simple. :)
