http://www.virtualconstructs.com/downloads/megamaneffect.shtml The Mega Man Effect waits for you to run programs, and then gives them an intro just like bosses got from Mega Man 2. Someone had written it for Mac OSX, so I wrote a version for Windows. I'd been playing around with Irrlicht for games anyway, so this was a fun little app to write. Let me know how well it works for you.

I receive this error when I try to run any other program after installing this:

Could not create image from file: C:\DOCUME~1\CODEMA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\4524-1947724125.bmp

That error happens when the Irrlicht image loader fails to load the bitmap of the new program about to run. I noticed I was using a pretty old version of Irrlicht, so I updated it and posted a new installer. Would you mind telling me your OS and resolution/bit depth?

I'm using Windows XP Pro on 1280 x 1024 at 16 bit color depth.

Also, I redownloaded it just now and I receive the same error.


Wierd, its the 16 bit thing, I set my bit depth to 16 bit and get the same problem. When I extract the icon from the program, I'm just using GDI to save off a screen compatible bitmap. It seems Irrlicht doesn't like 16 bit bitmaps?!
