Re: Coding Tools

Thanks to everyone for the advice. I know Visual Studio and I'm trying to steer away from it. I've considered using eclipse for editing and compiling from command line also. I'll likely wind up doing a combination of eclipse and emacs (which I'm trying to learn). I've found some good guides for usin...

Coding Tools

Alright now that I'm actually digging into the meat of the code (just took me three weeks :P), I'm looking to improve my Linux coding environment. I've piddled with Eclipse, but I'm not sure how well that would work with scons as it has a built in makefile system. I remember that tzlaine said he use...

Re: Problem Compiling

Yeah, that's what I was going to work on. I didn't notice the behavior right off the bat when I started testing earlier, but I only had a couple of minutes to play around. I just hopped on and saw that it's still on the bug list. I will get to work on it.

Re: Problem Compiling

Success!! :D

After much work, downloading and compiling a new version of the GCC compiler as well as countless other libraries. The game installs and is playable.. now it seems the bug I was intending to work on has already been fixed. :lol: So I guess I'll work on something else.

Re: Problem Compiling

Still a no go here :(
I applied the patch to Boost and compiled it. Verified that the includes are going to the right patch, but getting the same compile error. Anyone have any other advice? I haven't checked to see if the logs are identical yet (I'm at work), but the error messages are the same.

Re: Pointer Confusion

Great! Thanks for clarifying. I think I had the concept, but I haven't had to worry about pointers in a long while. I've been doing C# programming in .NET at my day job, so that's a bit of a different animal. Thanks again!

Pointer Confusion

Forgive my C++ n00bishness, but could someone explain this line of code to me: GG::Clr line_color = Empires().Lookup(*fleet->Owners().begin())->Color(); More specifically the opening "*" within the Lookup method. As I understand it: fleet->Owners() would be a references to a method of whatever fleet...

Problem Compiling

No I haven't dissapeared yet. Been busy with the holiday, but still looking at the code whenever I get a chance. Got it all compiling fine in windows, but I was trying to get it up and going in Ubuntu. I'm a bit of a Linux newb so I'm having difficulty getting scons to compile GG. Here's the config....

Re: Willing To Help

What happened exactly? The error I got was I believe while building intui.h in the GiGi library. When I looked at the logs it was unable to find windows.h. I might have an older code version because I was at work and the firewall wouldn't let me connect to SVN, so I was just using the code included...

Willing To Help

I've been lurking around the forums for a few days now and finally decided offer up my services to help out with the project. I was a huge fan of MOO 2 back in the day. Never played the origional MOO much. Was rather dissapointed with MOO 3. Exciting to see that other people are still interested in ...
