Can I get a copy of this source code to play with too?

Ok, I'm taking a crack at this. I've got the code compiling and am now taking out the registration stuff. Then gotta figure out how to add the new resolutions cause the current code makes a call to the display manager for a list of supported resolutions.


The thing is, when I originally launched the program, it did not show the 1680 x 1050 resolution (or any wide resolution for that matter). So I opened it up in ResEdit and found the menu, and simply modified one of the existing menu choices to read 1680 x 1050 at 60hz (in the same format as the rest of the menu choices, which I don't recall at this moment), saved, relaunched, and it worked just fine.

I figured it must just read whatever the menu says and sets the display to that, because I didn't change anything else.

So couldn't it be modified with as many resolutions as you want simply using resEdit?

No, because I can't add resolutions, I can only changed the values that already exist.

with dip switches. sometimes software is not the best or definitive solution to complex systems involving hardware.

Ok, the friend I loaned all of my mac programing books to still has them, and I'm getting them back sometime this weekend. I don't remember all of what I had, but I think I had some of the "Deep Magic" hardware books internal to Apple. If someone wouldn't mind sending the source code my way, I'll take a look.
