    Default 64-bit Shades

    Hello,

    To keep the sticky from going to far south, I thought that a new post might be warranted.

    Regarding the Grey shade, Michael stated:
    I am hoping the Grey shade for SawStudio becomes available in 64 bit. Itís what I am used to seeing.
    ...In all honesty...I rather doubt that this shade will ever be updated. This being said, why not give Brett a shout and see what he will do.

    If he does not want to perform the update himself, I could do it, as long as he said it was OK.
    * Note: There would be a small update fee...as it can be a bit of work to do al of this.

    If anyone else is interested in having me update a shade, then please let me know as well. Again, as long as the original developer said it was alight to do so.

    Is there a toolkit and specification for producing 64 bit shades?

    Hello,

    In checking out the actual bitmaps - these all appear to the same size and bit depth.

    The 32-bit SAC_Graphics.dll is 40,608 KB
    The 64-bit SAC_Graphics.dll is 40,656 KB

    Note: I gather that all that is required is to use Resource Hacker to replace the required bitmaps in the 64-bit SAC_Graphics.dll? Correct?
    * I changed the MAIN_BKGRND.bmp image and overwrote the existing dll - and all worked as it should. Finally, a rename of the dll to shd and all is good to go.

    Hello,

    If you see the post 64-bit shades, unless someone else chimes-in, all that is needed to use the 64-dll, and replace the image within that dll with the required images. For example, if you had changed the MAIN_BKGRND.bmp, then replace that image with the one contained n the 64-bit dll and then re-save it. Once done, the change the name of the dll - for example, to "cool_SAC", the change the file extension to .shd. Now you can place the newly updated and renamed file in the Shade folder and then replace the shade as before.

    PS: Can replacing the bitmaps be accomplished globally - or does this operation have to be done one-bitmap-at-a-time?

    Does anyone remember the names of the shade tools and where to find them? I probably have them somewhere, but I can't remember their names.

    I highly suggest all those that create these 64 bit shades also append the 64 to the end of the name for clarity... for instance "Cool SAC64.shd"
