Jabo Direct3D8 Video Plugin Advanced Settings
« on: August 23, 2017, 12:00:51 AM »
I asked Rad if we could look into the the idea of Jabo's Advanced Options to be used as a "per game" setting in the RDB , rather than the now "enable options" and keep them activated on all games until disabled.

An option to store these "Advanced Settings" in the RDB on a per game basis would be superb, as clearly some games need this from Jabos Plugin.

As Rad quite rightly states, PJ allows game setting related functions in the file, but the main video plugin functions are solely handled by Jabo. Zilmar allowed some minimal stuff for Jabo to access via the RDB,   but that was it.

This in a sense could be provide for the plugin but, any time a game is loaded, it would have to be set in the registry for the plugin so that it could be on a per game basis. This however would be enable it to extract the needed information form the  RDB / INI except instead of reading an ini, it would be reading from the registry, it would have to be changed each time, so it could be done, but quite frankly shouldn't have to be.

It will have to to be rearranged a bit, , just have to make sure its set before the plugin is initialized.

So basically it is still entered in a game specific basis in RDB, but then injected into the registry each time.

Again It shouldn't have to be done, as it is nasty hack, but  if Jabo isn't willing to make an allowance with maybe a new plugin to read/write said information , then this particular alternative avenue may well be worth exploring.

Something tells me I may have to translate that into English at some point so leaving this as a note.

Basically tho, if you're up for it j that will save some hassling around. Just let me know what you need or want.

Otherwise I will support it the way I can, by manually updating reg values as the plugin is loaded. Kind of a nasty way to do things but it will be done if it must.
