DebugIcon.png This game has debugging material.


Hmmm...
To do:
  • Like the other Vista games, this has XInput support.
  • See if more of the options work in the Vista version. This was tested with the Windows 7 version.
  • There's much more to document. A good place to start would be to use Resource Hacker on the game executable and DLLs.
  • Add sub-page for "Media Center Hearts", a full-screen version of the game embedded into the game's executable which although is technically used as it can be launched from Windows Media Center, it is not documented in any Help menus, and it also contains a whole bunch of unused content the normal game doesn't.
  • Multiple prototypes of this game exist in various Windows Longhorn/Vista Beta builds, collect all of them and create a Prototypes sub-page.

A pretty fun version of the game.

Debug Mode

HeartsVistaDbgMenu.png

Like many other games included with Windows Vista/7, they have an internal g_debugEnabled variable. When this variable is set to a non-zero value, it replaces the normal menu with this debug one. The options are pretty self-explanatory. They allow you to see the opponents' hands, test the AI, and choose whether to win or lose.

Setting that variable also enables the very same block & pause modes and logging as described on the Solitaire page.
