Ship spin video is still not in the main tree. Bugzilla says it's Mika's department, and I haven't seen much activity from him lately. If you apply the patch, remember the little timing fix I added (I ought to integrate that in the patch).

Oh yeah, the MSVC build file should define WANT_SHIP_SPINS, but as I don't have MSVC, I haven't tried setting this up in my patch. Try adding #define WANT_SHIP_SPINS to the #defines in src/msvc++/config.h and see if that's enough. If that works, I'll add it to the patch.

i've applied the patch and the opening video fix and defined "WANT_SHIP_SPINS" in config.h and everything works great.

thanks for the help Wink

Kohr-Ah Death and I are discussing a patch I made that adds the 3DO ship description videos ("ship spin videos") to UQM. As in the 3DO version, the ship spin videos can be accessed from Melee fleet configuration and from the Shipyard.

There are a few minor issues related to compiling the patch on Microsoft Visual C++ that we are trying to work out.

 i think it's safe to say we smoothed out the bugs on trying to compile it in Visual C++.

now i'm just wondering how many people out there actually have the ship spin videos, how many of em actually have the Star Control 2 cd?

Considering that these videos have been essentially useless outside of the SC2 3DO CD, I think these two numbers are pretty much the same. Of course, that assumes that we're including the illegal copies of the SC2 3DO CD in both counts. How many illegal copies of 3DO SC2 exist is something I can't even make an educated guess about.

i know of 2 ways to get the sc2 .iso file, but i won't divulge any information here.
both ways take a long aggravating time to download, i know cause i tried.
never really got it downloaded though.

but anyways, my next question would be...

When is the next release of UQM comin, if any?

hey novus, do you think i should do a clean build of uqm with just the ship spin patch and fix without the time mod, just so people can have the ability to use the ship spins without having to deal with the mod?

That sounds like a good idea. In fact, I'd add all of the patches that add features without affecting gameplay or other features. For example, the starmap search patch is nice.
