I think DDH69 is coming from a programmer's perspective....and when they don't know what has been done to another program, they don't want to "officially" support it, because it can be a pain in the butt for them to provide support for their own program, etc.... I do agree with him though that it doesn't seem to be a 64 bit program, hence the suspicion.
I'm sure there is a limit to what he was able to change in the exe. Zed was able to somehow change the way the memory is being used. Since FP was originally a 32 bit program, I'm sure there is a limit to what Zed was able to do.
That being said...I haven't had any problems when I tested it quickly so far. Just means I must have proper xmls for everything....which I started doing a while back anyway. I was more wondering if this version had the permanent changes to flippers, bumpers, etc that Zed did a long while back, and would that apply regardless of XML used with BAM... or does this version only change the XML settings,etc..
I'm sure the only change to the Zed FP exe file was to the physics which can be changed with an XML file. Physics whether it be in the FP EXE file or an XML has settings for the ball, flippers, bumpers, autoplungers, diverters, gates, kickers, plungers, slingshots, spindisks, spinners, emkickers, nudge settings and materials settings. If you are asking whether the Zed FP exe file has settings for these things, well sure it does but then so does every XML file.
Cabinet and front-end users would prefer not to have "load images into the table editor" enabled as it just adds extra loading time with no pay off....but that is nice if you want to do table creatiion or editing.
I'm not suggesting you leave it set that way. It is just a way to test how the different FP exe files compare with each other.
Right now, I either MUST use the Zed version....or disable GLSL shaders....or edit Tron Legacy Stern and remove certain images that cause the problem....
I'll be using Zed for now and see how it goes.
I would be surprised if you have any problems.
I saw Zedouious (or however he spells it) posted something recently you might send him a PM with you questions.
