[16:10:14] --> Darrenor64 has joined #xu4
[17:29:59] <Dominus> Darrenor64: needed to fix some stuff in osxinit.cppp but now it works. first snapshot made availlable
[17:30:38] <Dominus> I renamed the old snapshot to keep it around since that one was compatible to OS X older than 10.4 (I *think)
[17:32:11] <Dominus> u4.cpp still needs the SDL.h include - got it on my local copy but didn'T want to muck up whatever else you are doing :)
[17:36:55] <Dominus> So, now that I really have the mac side up and running nicely, SF allows release again, do you want me to make a beta release version of xu4?
[17:39:12] <Dominus> and do you want me to make release of the beta tagged source or the current SVN? I'd need to edit some of the beta tagged stuff anyway for proper documentation but nothing I can't do locally only. I'd only tell people to place the u4.zip in the app bundle (since the more comfortable way you added is in current SVN not the beta tag)
[17:55:43] <Dominus> hmm, and how is the website itself updated from the web repository?
[18:07:05] <Dominus> and what about that hires.zip on the website? Does this work and where do I put it?
[18:29:32] <Darrenor64> ah good, i'm glad it all works again.
[18:30:23] <Darrenor64> i'd say let's wait a bit and come out with a beta 5. I think a few more bugs need to be fixed first. beta4 was tragically buggy.
[18:30:42] <Darrenor64> i also need to verify that certain bugs reported for the mac version aren't real.
[18:46:00] <Darrenor64> here the web-access: https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Project%20web
[18:47:46] <Darrenor64> feel free to take over the website design, if you're interested. you'll find that the svn and web folder are out of sync. also let me know if you want me to add some additional webapps, because source forge has quite a few available: wikis, 'ideatorrent', etc.
[18:52:55] <Dominus> Darrenor64: the changes I made to osxinit.cpp were correct, right? At least it compiled with these :)
[18:53:35] <Dominus> as for the web page I thought that there were some semi automation that would update webpage with web svn, but it seems like there isn't
[18:53:42] <Darrenor64> if it got your build looking in the right folders, that's perfect.
[18:54:07] <Dominus> :)
[18:54:27] <Darrenor64> ultimately, the end of the function is to add folders to a list that xu4 will search through until it finds the files.
[18:54:34] <Dominus> the only thing that I noticed that it wouldn't look for u4upgrad.zip in the special mac folders
[18:54:42] <Darrenor64> it's technically still looking in win32 and linux folders even on the mac with no proble.
[18:54:50] <Darrenor64> hmmm...
[18:55:17] <Darrenor64> maybe it needs a little adjustment. i'll have to set up my mac for building again.
[18:55:34] <Darrenor64> and see the list that gets produced.
[18:56:15] <Darrenor64> so it found ultima4.zip but not the upgrade?
[18:56:45] <Darrenor64> QUESTION --- I'm wondering, if there's any reason that the upgrade package can't be auto-included into the build?
[18:56:48] <Dominus> yep and when I enabled verbose I noticed that it wouldn't even search in the mac paths
[18:56:54] <Darrenor64> Do we have permission from the creator?
[18:57:08] <Darrenor64> ok, so it's good news that it found u4.zip...
[18:57:14] <Darrenor64> so we're almost there.
[18:57:18] <Dominus> good question, right now I *do* include the upgrade zip
[19:02:10] <Dominus> Darrenor64: WAIT!
[19:02:38] <Dominus> seems it finds the upgrade zip after all
[19:02:51] <Dominus> grrr
[19:03:01] <Dominus> no idea why it didn't find it earlier
[19:03:45] <Dominus> so that works after all
[19:05:10] <Dominus> sorry for the false alarm
[19:05:22] <Dominus> got to go...
[19:05:30] --- Dominus is now known as Dominus|away
[19:19:12] <Dominus|away> hmm, too bad the old forum is totally gone now, not even possible to view it anymore. still would like to know how hires.zip can be used :)
[19:19:22] * Dominus|away is now really really gone
[19:39:55] <Darrenor64> hi res?
[19:40:03] <Darrenor64> like a tileset?
[22:11:30] <Dominus|away> yes, it's in the download folder, hires.zip
[22:12:07] <Dominus|away> http://xu4.sourceforge.net/download/hires.zip
[22:12:26] <Dominus|away> I remember there being something written about in the old forum... but not what :)
[22:15:27] --> Kirben has joined #xu4
[22:15:28] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Kirben
[22:28:03] <-- Dominus|away has left IRC (Quit: Leaving.)
[22:56:47] <Darrenor64> yes, I'd like to get into using other variations of the tilesets. Intro graphics as well. The Sega Genesis seems to have really nice intro graphics.
