That's just the default path. There is nothing Windows-specific about the fluid_patchset CVAR.

there is a cvar? i never noticed. will look it up.

i was asking, because i saw this :
http://mancubus.net/svn/zdoom/zdoom/tru ... device.cpp

Code: Select all

(...)
#ifdef unix
        // This is the standard location on Ubuntu.
        if (0 == LoadPatchSets("/usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GS.sf2:/usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GM.sf2"))
        {
#endif
(...)
and it didn't appear that flexible to me.

Yeah, take a deeper look at your first ellipsis here:

Code: Select all

	if (0 == LoadPatchSets(fluid_patchset))
	{
#ifdef unix
		// This is the standard location on Ubuntu.
		if (0 == LoadPatchSets("/usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GS.sf2:/usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GM.sf2"))
		{
#endif
#ifdef _WIN32
		<snip some code>
#endif
					Printf("Failed to load any MIDI patches.\n");
					delete_fluid_synth(FluidSynth);
					FluidSynth = NULL;

If ZDoom fails to load the patch set defined in fluid_patchset CVAR, then it looks for the default Ubuntu location. It's not flexible, but the flexibility is upstream.

Also we have a [wiki=FluidSynth]wiki article[/wiki] that explains that stuff.

To set it to say /usr/share I used:

Code: Select all

cmake .. -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS="-DSHARE_DIR=\"\\\"/usr/share\\\"\""

thanks for all the help, i'll get back to you if i find anything else.

edit: the -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS breaks initial configure phase when cmake tests if compiler is valid, for some reason.

it seems i have to run cmake without that option for initial configure and then re-run it again with that option added. that's a bit odd, but at least that works.

also, one more question - what is the libXcursor library used for in zdoom ?

Are there DEB packages for ZDoom? If so, where do I find them?

Mouse cursor for menus. Although I don't recall that code ever being finished.

Look like GZDoom has an error. ZDoom r4295 compiles fine for me.

By "last successful compile", you mean you tried r1559 and it didn't work?

If you could dichotomy search which revision broke it (try r1568, if it works try r1573, if it doesn't try r1563; and so on halving the difference each time), it'd be more helpful. Though given what it complains about, I guess the problem will be either in r1574, r1575, or r1578.

Which compiler and which version are you using? I don't get any error from p_acs.cpp in r1979 with clang 3.4svn.

About r4296 ... now it appears that I can't run anything anymore:

Code: Select all

Script error, "zdoom.pk3:actors/actor.txt" line 19:
FloatBobPhase must be in range [-1,63]
I checked the debug version and apparently, for strange reasons, this:

Code: Select all

PROP_FIXED_PARM(id, 0);
assigns 'id' to -65536 ... wtf?


[edit] Uh, I didn't notice that 'PROP_FIXED_PARM' multiplies -1 by FRACUNIT.

Maybe this is the right thing to do, attached.

[edit2]So I was not the only one with that problem, it's good it's fixed.

......and 1582 compiles just fine.

I'll, uh, eventually learn this whole "track down previous versions" thing instead of typing svn update and copypasting whatever's in the wiki. >_>

EDIT: Also, still got floatbob problem.

EDIT2: the old code still seems to be there!
brb this is the first time I've ever edited code and compiled it if not back avenge death

EDIT34: To clarify, I went into thingdef_properties.cpp and replaced the relevant line using Edward-san's text file, then saved the .cpp and recompiled. Error is unchanged.

EDIT4: Of course I could just read the diff file from here where PROP_FIXED_PARM is replaced with PROP_INT_PARM which kinda makes a lot more sense now that I think about it.

EDIT5:
Spoiler:
man what

EDIT6: restored using svn update. Turns out this one already says INT.
Trying this:

Code: Select all

DEFINE_PROPERTY(floatbobphase, F, Actor)
{
	PROP_INT_PARM(id, 0);
	//if (id < -1 || id >= 64) I_Error ("FloatBobPhase must be in range [-1,63]");
	if (id < -1) id = -1;
	else if (id > 63) id = 63;
	defaults->FloatBobPhase = id;
}
EDIT7: which works, I'm out.

Vaecrius, the devs have not yet ported the fixed change from the zdoom code base (gez? graf?) to gzdoom.

Not yet?

What code base change are you referring to, then?
