I just got WINX 2.1 from ftp.cs.tu-berlin.de and in all of the docs, I
couldn't find any reference to how to change the maximum window limit
beyond 8 (the default).
Can anyone give me some help? Please? :)
In WINX.INF (located in the AUTO-folder) Your favourite changes must be
defined. You can change GLOBAL and LOCAL switches.
The switch for more than eight windows is a GLOBAL one:
[G1] Increase number of available windows to 40 (instead of 8)
In WINX.INF You have to do this:
.GLOBAL = [...] 1+ [...]
THEN You will get more than eight windows ...
When GEM starts, WiNX switches *all* switches to *ON*. Therefore switch G1 is
set to ON. G1 ON means 40 windows. G1 OFF means 8 windows. So, if you don't
change G1 in your WINX.INF, 40 windows are on. Check, wether the .GLOBAl = -
line contents a 1-. If so, remove the 1-.
BTW, do you use GEMRAM or ROMRAM? If not, WINX can't patch your system.
A short extract of my WINX.INF:
# Globale Schalter
# Beim Start des GEM werden zunaechst alle globalen Schalter einge-
# schaltet. Dann werden die unter .GLOBAL angegeben Schalter veraendert.
# Syntax: '.GLOBAL' '=' <SCHALTERLISTE>.
When starting GEM, all global switches are switched on. Then the switches of
.GLOBAL are changed.
Therefore he has to check, wether there is a .GLOBAL = 1- statemant in his
WINX.INF. If so, he has to remove the 1-.
Winx changes the max number to 40 by default.
