2009-06-28: Pigeon

Posted at 2009-06-28 21:04:14 by SHD

Yesterday, as I was leaving for my parents' to celebrate my mum's birthday, I noticed a pigeon in my back yard. That in itself is not a particularly unusual thing. On Sunday however, it was still there now literally tapping on my window.

Posted at 2009-06-27 05:11:06 by SHD

DOSBox makes use of the SDL library with a few slight modifications for performance on Windows. This exposes a memory leak in SDL 1.2.x. I have filed a bug report and fix with the SDL people, but since this code path is not used under normal circumstances, only in DOSBox, they are not likely to incorporate it any time soon.

This time, the game was "Interphase" and it also got stuck in a loop at the intro screen and rolling demo, not acknowledging any input from keyboard or mouse.
