I need a programmer.
« on: November 22, 2012, 09:30:55 am »

Gentlemen, I apologize for my absence & lack of updates.

As many of you know, I'm working on the Ur-Quan Masters HD.  Many of you have seen the higher resolution graphics with Project 6014. That all started out as my side HD project. We ported the HD code over, but since the code was ported over, bug fixes have been made.  I need those bug fixes ported back to the HD project.  The project 6014 programmers have moved on to other things. 

But now, I'm hitting a roadblock.  I struggle with C code.  I'm more of a Python & PHP guy.  Now, we're at a point.... I can get the art done by the end of this week...  if I can get a programmer to help fix the melee bugs. 

The code is all there on Project 6014. I just need somebody to port the applicable parts over.  If we get this done, you guys can celebrate the 20th anniversary of Star Control, with a new experience.
I'm almost there, I just need a coder to help.

I've been learning UQM code to some extent recently. I doubt I could do very much, but given a pointer to the code I'll submit any patches I can make. Smiley

Could you or the p6014 programmers post a summary of the technical issues that were encountered in trying to get the HD graphics working in p6014, ideally with references to the p6014 checkins that fixed those issues?  That would provide a starting point for other developers to step in.

Yeah, I was going to ask in particular for the exact date of divergence, to make it obvious which commits must be ported over

The HD code is based on the 6.9 UQM code.

The official date of the convergence into Project 6014 is September 3rd, 2011. 
http://code.google.com/p/project6014/source/detail?r=589

After that, a lot of automated changes were made that moved us from the 6.9 codebase to the 7.0 code.

From there, changes were made to accommodate the different resolutions.  This was done around October 11th.
As an example, Here's the diff for the Earthlings:
http://code.google.com/p/project6014/source/diff?spec=svn1325&r=1325&format=side&path=/trunk/sc2/src/uqm/ships/human/human.c

The other ships followed after that.

Well, it is now based on 0.7 code as of r516. Ship specific changes from p6014 to follow shortly.
