Background picture in empty slots

Hello!

I was wondering if there is some way to put a background picture in the dxNothing region.

My layout has my party along the bottom of the screen (regions 2-6), with the active slot empty. I thought it would be handy to use the empty space for some static picture, which be underneath all the non-active slots, but showing for the active slot.

I noticed menu templates has a background image selector, could I somehow configure a menu to display underneath regions 2-6?

Re: Background picture in empty slots

you could certainly try that. Z-order can sometimes be a bit weird though.

Re: Background picture in empty slots

I tried adding Frameless.exe (freeware borderless command line image viewer) to the Inner Space games. Then I added a character in slot 6 for Frameless. It can load it, and shows my test image just fine.

However, once it's loaded, Inner Space does not go to the next slot. In this case the dxNothing character, but I also tried putting it in slot1 and then it doesn't proceed to slot2.

It seems like Inner Space does not "see" that Frameless has loaded. In the configuration I can fill in WNDCLASS but I couldn't find a way to list all the window instance names, if that even is what it needs. Apart from that there are some options regarding hooking, and aggressiveness.

Or could it be that games for Inner Space must be DirectX apps?

Yes. Innerspace is for DirectX or OpenGL applications.
