    This doesn't happen with all my manuals in Pause, but with some manuals, the pages are not the correct orientation - they are displayed sideways. When I open that particular manual separately (e.g. in Internet Explorer or Adobe Viewer), then the pages are the right way round.

    What is going on & how do I fix this? Thanks!

    Send me one of those problematic PDFs so I can have a look at it.

    Thanks brolly. It seems to be the rule rather than the exception. Here is a typical example:

    Looks fine on yours, as you say. On mine, all the pages are in "portrait" or vertical, rather than landscape, orientation. Which is fine for the front cover, but sideways for all the rest.

    I tried it with other systems - NES and SNES, and here the manual pages show in the correct portrait mode.

    One thing I can think of is that maybe I messed something up when I was editing the pause.ahk file. Is it possible to download a new/original pause.ahk file to replace mine, so I can test?

    You most probably changed the pdf page layout option on RLUI pause settings without reading the description of the options available.

    Also, to reset back any RL file to the official release files you just need to force an update check and follow the on screen instructions on the RLUI app.

    I tried all the Page Layout options in the PDF menu - 1 page, 2 pages, coverup and from PDF - each time I get the same problem with the pages not shown in their correct orientation.

    I will - but what is a "DLL log" and how do I get it?

    I opened RL, ran Pause for the game, went to the manual, enlarged a page or two, and exited. Here is my log file:

    your problem is most probably the same one that SupraKarma found.

    Yes, it looks like the exact same problem. Odd that this has not come up before, as I found it within the first minute of trying to view a manual. Hope you can get it sorted.

    It was a relatively recent change that introduced the bug because I had tested this when I added the feature and everything was working fine at the time.

    I'm wondering if it has something to do with the way the manuals were scanned. All the ones where this occurs on my end, the very first page is just a single, tall page. Then all the subsequent pages are scans of 2 tall pages, which display sideways.

    On my end, the first tall page displays normal, then all the 'double page' scans display sideways.

    Same here. Sounds like bleasby is on the case so hopefully will be resolved soon.

    Extracampine, please follow the other thread that I linked above for a partial solution of the problem meanwhile we do not have the chance to fix entirely the issue.
