Title: Somewhat Back In The Biz
Post by: Kohr-Ah Death on August 04, 2005, 02:22:20 pm
well i've restarted my modding and have re-created the time mod with the updated cvs snapshots, plus added ship spin support with intro video patch  ;)

i'll be uploading a release and a debug version to yousendit.com so some people can take a crack at testing it.

i'll post the links when i have them uploaded which should take like 5 minutes to 10

hope you have fun

Post by: Kohr-Ah Death on August 04, 2005, 02:42:13 pm
well here they are!

     UQM Release (http://s50.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1CC41MIRMMCEM3E5RMEP0C6ENK)

     UQM Debug (http://s50.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0D10OG9906VQQ2XWSMDDU4Z6HW)

These are just the time mods and ship spin patch only.

No ships were modified in the making of this patch

maybe i should tell ya that these are for the Win32 UQM only ;)

In case you have problems with this (since I see he still didn't cough up the runtime after being gived the clue), look around the net for:  MSVCR71.DLL  340K 1/12/2004

At least that's what I downloaded when I tried his last widget out.  If you have problems, get that file and put it in the same directory as UQM.EXE

So what does this do, Exactly?

What does what do, the Visual C++ runtime or Kohr-Ah Death's updated UQM executable?

The files marked "UQM Debug" and "UQM Release" are replacement executables with a modified UQM with slower time and support for 3DO ship spin videos. The file marked "CLICK HERE" is the Microsoft Visual C++ runtime library that you need to run the modified versions that Kohr-Ah Death has compiled with Visual C++ instead of MinGW the way any GNU-loving developer (including, I presume, UQM coredev) would.

thank you for taking that one ;D

i would use mingw but i just cant get it to work on my terms, i do everything the 'INSTALL.mingw'" asks, input the correct commands and it never works.

i tried it at least 5 times

FWIW, the release binary was compiled on MS Dev Studio 6.
I'm not familiar with the details for Windows myself, but I suspect the equivalent of MSVCR71.DLL was linked statically in our case.

Actually if I recall my history correctly, Microsoft didn't start in with runtimes for Visual C++ until version 7.0 (corresponding probably with .NET assemblies).  So compiling it with MS Dev Studio 6 probably wasn't a concern.

Of course, if Kohr-Ah Death wanted to, he could probably convert said DLL to a LIB file and then link that file in when he runs the link step for his compilation.
