 Post subject: Guinea Pigs Required Please.
New postPosted: Tue Aug 10, 2010 1:24 pm 

Hey guys, i've been working on a little something.
If you can trust me, download and install this little beauty (keeping the default install location), then run the 'activate' shortcut on your desktop.
Open a game of solitaire, press F7, switch the theme to Classic Felt or Red Hearts.........

TIA for any cooperation and as always, let me know what you think (though note this is only a proof of concept at the minute and shouldn't be considered a finished article!) :D

EDIT: Installer is borked, watch this space!

EDIT: Should work OK, now.

Ah, I'm on 64 bit ATM.. wait my laptop is sitting literally right next to me. Will report back...

Edit: Had to take ownership of cardgames.dll (C:\Windows\System32)

Very nice!

Other thoughts: I want more! Haha but other than that, no, I think it's pretty cool. It's in its early stages, so I'm sure it will come together nicely (like everything else you do.)

I tried it on 64bit (as I don't have a 32bit atm) so it didn't work but will be eager to try if you make a 64bit one.

For this post the author jumper918 has received thanks - 2: Rich, Stu

Here is the 64bit version.

First time using Sky Drive so hopefully this works. Uploaded both normal .dll and a Rared one.

Would have uploaded directly to Mintywhite but the 2mb limit wouldn't allow it.
