Trying to compile
« on: May 20, 2007, 06:57:46 am »

Sorry, I'm bad with C/C++.  How do I arrange all these files?  I'm trying to use the Crazy Mod final version, and to possibly make my own, but I need to know how to get all the files to compile right.  Using Visual C++ 2005 Express.

There's a file 'INSTALL.msvc' which tells you step-by-step what to do for a normal compile. The only thing you need to do differently for the Crazy Mod is step 4.1. After installing the UQM source as normal, remove the dir "C:\Build\sc2\src" and extract EP's source in C:\Build\sc2\. (This should give you a new src dir)

wait a sec... Looks like I found a C++ Project file.  I should really search everywhere before asking for help.

But it came up with 86 errors and 336 warnings.  Crap.

Follow the instructions (every step) and you shouldn't have errors.

Giving us some hint what the errors are would help us help you. Most likely, you have some library installed wrong.

The fatal errors seem to be that it's missing a few libraries. And I have no install.msvc file.

OK, now that I've found that stupid install.msvc file and followed it, I still can't get rid of all errors.  Here's what I still get:

c:\build\sc2\src\sc2code\libs\sound\openal\audiodrv_openal.h(32) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'AL/al.h': No such file or directory

BSCMAKE: error BK1506 : cannot open file '.\debug_noaccel\audiodrv_openal.sbr': No such file or directory

Any clue where to find these files so I can get the whole thing?  I understand the workings enough to make these work, but they need to exist first.  Is there a backup, or can someone post them somewhere or something?

Those are the OpenAL header files; they should be included in the OpenAL SDK.

Huh.  That had randomly disappeared.  Looks like I just needed to fix that, thanks!
