Nash wrote:Important update!

Updates will be a bit slower because I've recently assembled a new computer, and it's my first time using Vista, so I'll need some time to get used to the OS, re-install my old setup and stuff.

But more importantly, I have put up an important poll.

Originally, my intentions were to take over where RazTK left off. Back then, RazTK was the only source of SVN executables, but he eventually stopped updating and ZDoom users were stuck with a very old revision for a very long time and I felt that I should step up and take over his role.

It has come to my attention that SoulPriestess has setup an SVN archive over at DRDTeam. With two people doing essentially the same thing, I begin to wonder if I should even bother doing what I do or not.

I don't see much point in me taking the effort to keep updating and uploading newer versions if someone else is also doing it (and may be doing a better/more consistant job at it).

Opinions please.
Well, personally, I compile my own so the only point of SVN builds like RazTK's is that it allows to quickly test many old revisions when looking for which revision introduced a bug or behavior change. (I can use TortoiseSVN to update to wanted old revision n, then compile it, and test it, but it takes quite some time, so when there are many revisions to test it's far too much of a bother.) So, so long as you continue to keep old compiled versions around, what you do is useful. Even if not useful often because it's not every day I'm tracking the origin of a bug.

Edit: Quoting Nash's post since this is a new page.

Hey Nash, as one of the people submitting builds to SoulPriestess' SVN directory on DRD I hope you don't feel that I am treading on your toes or stealing your thunder. That was not my intention at all. In fact, I got the impression that SoulPriestess was going to invite you to contribute as well, but I could perhaps have imagined/misinterpreted that.

Having another contributor to the DRD SVN builds would ease the pressure on SoulPriestess and me. It hasn't exactly been an onerous task so far (I just put up a copy of my own builds when I make them) but another person keeping an eye on the SVN repository and adding a build when the DRD builds are missing the current one seems like a reasonable idea to me. If you feel that you won't be able to provide builds quite as often as you have been doing, then perhaps something like that might be more suited to what you are currently able to do? Obviously SoulPriestess would need to OK it as well.

The more copies the better. A site can possibly go down, but then one archive would still be there.

I did ask, but he declined. The offer is always open to him, though.

I think that speaks for itself. :) I'd say keep updating your versions, Nash. :)

Will you put Eternity SVN builds on the DRDTeam hosting as well? Because after looking at some Eternity stuff I think it looks pretty interesting. :)

I will look into it. To be honest, I've never played Eternity before, I've only ever seen you guys talk about it.

EDIT: I am having trouble locating the SVN tree.

I found another link to it, it's not quite the same one.

Now, however, I am having trouble finding out how to even compile it. There's no VC++ projects for it, and I might not have the compiler installed. (And after the hell I went through getting VC++ to work, I am not at this point willing to install another compiler).

It does use it, but I don't think the project is set up for the current version of VC++.

Until I have a better understanding of how to compile this thing, it's not happening. :)

Project files are there but they are for VC++ 6.0 (which is quite old if I may say so.)

Man, I've forgotten the amount of files needed to be downloaded for this build environment... o_O

So... still no updates because I'm not done setting up yet...

Eternity is compiled, now. But, I am trying to find all the dependencies, and how to store them in the zip file. Needless to say, they did NOT make this easy.

If you are having troubles compiling the EE source, it would be better to post about it on the DoomWorld Etenrity forum. I believe you're more likely to run into a member of the team there than here. esselfortium directed me here, that's the only reason I found this thread. The external dependencies you speak of are SDL, SDL_Mixer (http://www.libsdl.org), smpeg.dll (which comes with SDL_Mixer), and snes_spc.dll which is a separate lib that is in the VC 6 project. You should be able to find snes_spc.dll in the snes_spc subdir in the Eternity project. Hope this helps!

I got the dll's, but it still won't run.

Also, I can't register on the DW forum, I've tried emailing an admin about it. The account is there, but I do not receive emails to activate it, and every email address I've tried will not receive any messages from DW. And yes, I've checked my Spam folder, there's nothing in there except... spam. It doesn't even light up to tell me there's new messages there.
