I also decided to turn on APM support, because I really like to type "poweroff" at a console and have the right thing happen; Smiley [...]
Ain't your shell supposed to restart UQM whenever UQM is quitted? Therefor we should not be able to enter something into the console...

  • The disk must have a volume label of "UQM_SAVES"

You mean "UQM_SAVE.S"?? (8letter restriction!)
Did not try yet (have a damn lot of work to do here, and i'm getting nowhere... Sad  )

Ctrl+Alt+F3 will switch you to a console where you can poke around the system, fix stuff, break stuff, or whatever.  I kept typing "poweroff" in that console out of habit, and since code is easier to fix than habits...  Wink

FAT12 volume labels are restricted to 11 chars, and . is an "illegal" character unless you're using VFAT or non-MS tools to label the disk (i.e., FORMAT.COM from DOS 6.22 will not let you name a disk "UQM_SAVE.S" but will let you name it "UQM_SAVES")

I'm thinking future revisions of the CD will include mtools so that people can make save disks from inside the CD, but floppy saves are kindof a stopgap solution until I figure out a "nice" way to save to hard disks; so that may ultimately be unnecessary.

Yeah rigth!
I messed that up with Directories...

Sorry about that...
BTW: for me disk support is all i need.

How many saves do you guess will fit?

Hmm, don't mind, i'll try at home.

BTW: next week weill be hard for me, so don't expect an answer too soon...
Best wishes!

I don't know how many saves a 1.44MB floppy will hold when the "new" XML-based savegame format is finished, but the "old" (currently in-use) savegame format takes less than 3k per savegame, so I'd wager that you could save about 450 games with it, and still have room for some custom teams in melee.  Smiley

Sorry Nic.
Some dumb ___ broke into my car and picked some things.
That took some time the last two weeks to fix, so that UQM-bootROM just lay around unused.

I'll come to it in time, whenever that may be I'll try (and i'm positive that it'll work, since it booted fine after i burned the ROM).

Grretings,
Martin

I think save to FTP is a good idea.
Also, there is a new wrapper for microsoft NTFS driver out, that allows full read/write support for NTFS on linux..

http://www.jankratochvil.net/project/captive/

Dont know about distribution issues, being that it uses the MS driver directly. One would think if you already owned windows it would be legal ?

Cool Nic.!
it works!
I played very slowly
By now i have: sun device (no Chmmr - yet), Vux-Beast (the Maidens are still on board), nearly - repaired Ultron.

Bad luck the floppy got some bad-sectors over the week-end. Me thinks, most saves are broken.
So i guess i have to start again.

But I'll wait for UQM 0.4 to start anew.

Keep it up to date - please. If you have the time, that is.

Bye,
Krulle


Sorry for the late answer, but real life crushed down on me, and it still gets harder for me to leave the computer for work, so in my free time i stopped using PCs at all.
