I've been playing with the Paradigm game demo for Mac (http://www.paradigmadventure.com/#
!demo/c1lqf) and I've run into a few issues with the Visionaire Player. I thought it might be best to communicate those issues back to here instead of to Jacob who is simply using Visionaire Studio.
First, the final redistributable has a dependency on a framework that is not included in the app bundle:
All of the ffmpeg libraries included with the player seem to depend on this and it is not a standard system library (as far as I'm aware). I was able to fix this by installing the 0.89 version of Jack but I imagine the better solution would be to either eliminate this dependency (if possible) or package it with the app bundle. Something similar to this is mentioned elsewhere in the forums regarding mac 10.9 (though not for this particular framework).
Second, when running on a retina (aka HiDPI) display mac the player does not scale properly and the mouse behaves strangely. I observed the following:
- The image only occupies the bottom left quarter of the screen (a classic HiDPI symptom)
- The mouse cursor behaves strangely and does not move properly to all areas of the screen (making some critical UI elements unreachable)
I'm using a current generation MacBook Pro which does have a retina display. I was able to work around all these problems by simply connecting an external display with a mouse and keyboard and then closing my MacBook so that it ran only on the external display. All these problems went away on the external display.
Just some feedback. If you would like more info about my system or need any logs/other diagnostic information let me know!
