Commander_X's 'quick fix' posted above appears to have done the trick!

Thanks so much to C_X and a_c for helping me out with this :)

Now I'm free to mangle the source code to suit my peculiar tastes :D

That was certainly a possibility but no, I can run it as a regular 'user'. Thanks for investigating.

I haven't built it yet but I'll post back at some stage to (hopefully :| ) confirm a success!

Cheers! :)

2. Check out the oolite code:

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/OoliteProject/oolite.git
This will start copying the source code from the repository to your working dir. When finished, there will be a folder named oolite under the folder you performed the checkout. Next do a

Code: Select all

cd oolite
to enter in the trunk folder, where the actual build will take place. Finally, execute this command to pull in all the binary dependencies needed for the full build (maybe you can take a coffee break here, this takes a while):

Code: Select all

git submodule update --init

Suggestion; these steps can be combined by using:

Code: Select all

git clone --recursive https://github.com/OoliteProject/oolite.git

This command clones both the source and the submodules in the one step.

A new version of the development environment for Windows has been uploaded. See first post for download link.

In this version:
  • New git version (2.16.2), which uses the latest GitHub security protocols. If you tried to clone or pull from github and received an error, try again with this one.
  • Latest home-made gnustep-base-1.20.1.dll,with include files and import libraries. This is capable of TLS downloads.
  • New home-made SDL.dll + include files and import libraries, with embedded haptic devices and mousewheel delta support. This may come handy for upcoming features.

Great, this was due since a while. Luckily Cygwin's git (not hurt by github's measures) could handle mingw's repositories with no trouble.
