"Now I'll do the patch for issue 4, let's see how long that will take. :)"
This is from my readme for the Scene Talk 3 patch and was written in
December 2011. Which means it took me about 3 years to do the patch
for issue 4. ;)
The code was updated quite a bit which made me spend a lot of time
emulating all the used OS functions properly. Then I also had to
fix a bug in the article loading that only happened on very fast machines.
When I updated the old Scene Talk patches some weeks ago I remembered
the unfinished patch for issue 4, looked at my old code, restarted
from scratch ;) and then finished it in about 2 days. The patches
for the remaining issues will hopefully not take 3 years again.
If the title picture disappears too fast you can use the ButtonWait
option, if enabled the picture will be shown until left mouse button
has been pressed.
Enjoy the mag from HD.
