AltME: Syllable

Messages

Do the virtual desktops work for switching resolution, as described in the Welcome?
AdrianS
yes
Kaj
GrUB should be adble to start from anywhere as long as it's consistent. Dunno why it didn't here, but in general, emulators are weird
AdrianS
easy to switch using alt key, so no big problem - it would be nice if there was a 1920x1200 one though, so that going full screen would use all space
Kaj
Sorry, have to leave again for supper
AdrianS
k - I'll make an image and post a link here
Kaj
Great
AdrianS
for the screen resolutions - could 1920x1080 be added as well? - that's my laptop rez - the other is my external monitor. The existing choices seem to reflect older 4:3 displays only
Kaj
Few of the drivers support widescreen resolutions, but you can try
For new features, newer versions of the drivers need to be ported to Syllable, but people stopped doing that years ago
On VMware, that would go through the VMware video driver, so that would have to be changed
AdrianS
I exported the VM as an OVF - it should be importable in any hypervisor that supports this. Is that OK for you?
I believe that VB and Microsofts's stuff should be able to load it
Kaj
I don't know that format. I suppose VMware can also just load it?
AdrianS
sure
that's a standard for VMs - OVF and OVA
Kaj
Does it retain the VMware settings? The problem with loading images from other emulators is that you don't get the emulation settings, so it can break when for example it defaults to SATA instead of ATA
AdrianS
I re-loaded it and it seemed fine
Kaj
Let's try it. We'll see what Doc says :-)
I don't see MS supporting it on Wikipedia, but it is supposed to work across VMware and VirtualBox
