What works

Almost everything, with a simple workaround, see "Image Browser Workaround" in the what does not work section for details.

What does not

When starting the application or the first time, it performs some diagnostics to ensure the computer is capable of accelerated morphing. This is fine, but afterwards it tests image exporting, and the "correct" result is actually a black square. Provided the actual result looks ok, just click "yes".


Image Browser Workaround

Opening the file browser to select images for morph when using the wizard, or choosing to import an image from the Image menu, gives

fixme:commdlg:GetFileName95 Flags 0x00800000 not yet implemented
err:seh:setup_exception_record stack overflow 852 bytes in thread 0009 eip 7b884dd9 esp 00230fdc stack 0x230000-0x231000-0x330000

and crashes the application. Opening a project however, gives the first part of the same error

fixme:commdlg:GetFileName95 Flags 0x00800000 not yet implemented

but does not crash the application.

Images can instead be loaded by using the wizard, and manually typing in their locations, for example "Z:\home\username\Desktop\image.jpg".

After I did that, the dialog started working. Perhaps it was trying to load from a non-existent default location, but now I have chosen one that does exist, it defaults there and works.

After closing and reopening the application, the problem is back, but if you just type "Z:\" and attempt to use it as an image location, the program warns you that the image is not available, and asks you if you want to locate it. If you answer yes, the file browser works correctly, starting at an existing folder rather than the application's mysterious default location.

The sliders for playback position and magnification work, but their background appears black. I wonder if the developers just made a 1 pixel wide image and repeated it horizontally across the slider's length? That might explain the long string of errors produced when resizing the window - all of them are the same:

fixme:ole:OLEPictureImpl_get_Attributes Unknown pictype 0

perhaps each instance of that error is for when it tries to put a part of the background in the slider. This affects all sliders in the application, expect the ones in the dialogs because they are not skinned.

It looks like the cursor is supposed to change when you hover over a dot, which it does, but wine still gives

fixme:ole:OleIconToCursor (0x400000,0x114e), partially implemented.

the cursor changes to an appropriate one though, so I guess that's not an error here.

When adding a caption to an image, the preview is black; it may be like that on windows, but I doubt it - it wouldn't be a very useful preview if there was no image.

The help browser is labeled as "Untitled window" and all icons in the top toolbar are printers. Only the Home button seems to work, and the search tab is completely blank. Closing the help browser sometimes causes the program to crash. Otherwise it's fine though.

Changing the skin just gives a string of error popups;

"The skin element file C:\windows\temp\FantaMorph\whatever_element.jpg is corrupted!".

I assume each popup is for an image used by the skin. Funny that they used jpeg. After clicking "OK" to each warning, the skin does change, but the images are displayed incorrectly. I think the repeating error here is

fixme:ole:OleLoadPictureEx (0xf522cc,2776,1,{00020400-0000-0000-c000-000000000046},x=0,y=0,f=0,0x32d6c0), partially implemented.

Additional Comments

Technically this should be Bronze, but the only necessary workaround is so simple, and otherwise it works so well, I think it would be a bit draconian to make it bronze just for that.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

Image Browser Workaround (No longer required with 1.0-rc3)

Opening the file browser to select images for morph when using the wizard, or choosing to import an image from the Image menu crashes the application.

To get around this, just type "Z:\" (without quotes) in the file location text box - do not click browse. If you then attempt to use it as an image location (click next), the program warns you that the image is not available, and asks you if you want to locate it. If you answer yes, the file browser works correctly, starting at an existing folder rather than the application's mysterious default location.
