ACC 1.59 Released

Post by Rachael »

This version is mostly to update the included *.acs files with the newest GZDoom 4.9.0 features.

It also (should) compile a static binary for Linux/MinGW too.

It's kinda weird that an MS-DOS version of all things exists.

It was possible to do with little effort. As soon as that's no longer the case, it will cease being released.

The DOS version is still needed for those few mappers still using WadAuthor. For inexplicable reasons that editor uses a truly screwed up way to launch ACC which only works with a DOS version.

DOS doesn't even support *ZDoom at all, it'd be weird to port 4.9.0 functionality to it. (afaik there was a ZDoom DOS version but it sucked)


Doing spatial math sounds like fun to them.

I think you're kind of missing the point.

The DOS executable is just to make DOS-editing workflows easier. It does not mean that GZDoom will be ported to DOS or is intended to be.

There's really nothing special about it. This is the way it's been for a long time. I'm sure it's nowhere near as popular as it was a decade or two ago, but it doesn't matter - as I said, as soon as it becomes too inconvenient to provide a DOS executable I won't. You're making this out to be a much bigger deal than it really is.

I already know that GZDoom-DOS-Edition is impossible.

There is no win64 build in the download list, is it intended?

I didn't think one was needed but I can easily make one.

ACC is 32 bit code that never got made 64 bit safe. Who knows...
It doesn't matter anyway, it's just a small command line tool.

That's a problem on both Linux and Mac because Mac doesn't even allow compiling or running of 32-bit anymore past OS 10.13 I think it was?

And Linux does not by default include 32-bit libraries without installing them intentionally.

Well if someone does have issues (extremely unlikely) they can at least run it with DOSBox :) Which includes 64-bit versions on both platforms. Not that it's ideal, but, it works. Wine works too, at least for Linux, but that's a massive pain in the arse to download and install just for a single program.

I didn't say it wouldn't work - only that this was never properly checked.

I'm asked about win64 build just because it exists for 1.58: viewtopic.php?t=70444

If it's not required for 1.59 and later, then I'm ok to not have it

It's not needed because Win64 can run 32 bit EXEs just fine. It is not like ACC requires that amount of memory so in this case a 64 bit EXE would be a bit redundant...
