Lightman - I've created you an FTP account on the website, and e-mailed you the details.  Let me know if you don't receive anything, given our communication issues in the past.

And don't touch Sage's stuff, or he'll crush your testicles into oblivion, apparently.

Source?
« Reply #16 on: February 19, 2004, 05:22:38 pm »

I was wondering if you'd post the source code along with the Win32 binary? I'm running Linux and would like to compile the code for testing. Also, is UQM+ based off the 0.3 or 0.31 UQM code?

Thanks.

To get a patch, install CVS, do a CVS checkout of the sc2/src directory, put your changes into that, then run "cvs diff -u" in the top of the src directory.  The output of this command will give us something we can actually study and work with.

Paxtez had a patch that put things in the setup menu -- this is present in our bugzilla repository.

Ok. I'd never used CVS before, but I just tried it out and I think I've got the hang of it. It might be optimal to try doing a merge from the current source (without replacing my changes) and then make a patch. I will also want to clean things up a bit... __int32 won't do, you know. Wink

Zeep-Eeep, I used the 20040208 CVS (v0.31)

Goodie. Now, is there an FTP account somewhere so I can get your UQM+ source?

32-bit integers are DWORDs if unsigned, SDWORDs if signed.
The full information there is in src/sc2code/libs/compiler.h.
If you run into difficulties making the code work right, join our IRC channel on irc.freenode.net (channel #sc2).  There's often a developer or two hanging about there, and there's always someone idling who will *eventually* answer. Smiley

I have a problem with it, it won't run I get this error message only readable from a dos-prompt, at least it doesn't continually loop the reads as follows.

I got it working keys was missing got the cvs here if anyone needs it

weird.

There is one immediately noticable thing after you meet the security drone it doesn't reveal the Ur-Quan's Sphere of Influence or was that intentional?

If u want to make a hard mode allow ships chasing u to follow u into starsytems and q-space portals half the game ur running from people anyway.

Thanks for the feedback...

That first error you got is probably the result of not having the most recent content dir. I am running a 0.3 install without problems

The Ur-Quan's Sphere of Influence isn't supposed to show up after meeting the probe.

The fuel thing is a bug. It's fixed.

I also added Rainbow World Guards. New version online here...

*Pokes around, looking for the source code.*

Oh well, maybe later. I usually wouldn't mention this, but since UQM is
GPLed, isn't it manditory for you to post your modified source code?
I'm sorry. I don't want to come across as an arse, but I do want to see the changes.

He's provided us with a patch against current CVS, but wants to clean up the code a little before it's done.  If you *really* want to see it *immediately*, come on #sc2 and I can DCC it to you.

I tested out the patch a little, and cleaned it up a great deal.  Linux users may acquire the patch and additions at http://www.stanford.edu/~mcmartin/uqm/uqmplus_032.tgz
Decompress it in your top level directory (above src), build.sh uqm depend, then build.sh uqm.

This patch is against current CVS, but as it is a unified diff it should still work for awhile.

lightman -- your C environment completely hoses the MSVC project files, so later patches should only be against src/sc2code if possible.

Michael: Thanks for the help in making the patch.

Zeep-Eeep: As Michael mentioned, I wanted to get the source cleaned up a bit. I hadn't posted it before because the source is likely to fluctuate and also because I wanted to reach a stage where I felt comfortable with a real release. I just put the .exe up in case anyone wanted to try it out as I was working on it.
