Recordings for 0.2.9.2.X: round1_desony_red_vs_bm.aarec 18812kb 1795s round1_nanunj_rac_vs_para.aarec 21592kb 2002s Erm. These two were accidentally recorded with vsync off, so they are quite a bit bigger than they should be and don't fast forward that well. I hope nobody has unusual problems with b...

Re: NixOS: The last word in Armagetron hosting

Yeah, for someone who loves total and direct control over their system, NixOS is a bad choice. It's the law of leaky abstractions that can strike. You're writing some configuration, and some not entirely clear process creates a different configuration, which some other program then uses. Worst case,...

Re: 0.2.9.2 Release Process: Released

No, SDL_compat is supposed to be a straight replacement for SDL1.2. Mind that you still need the 1.2 versions of SDL_mixer and SDL_image. I use something like "nix-shell -p git gcc gnumake pkg-config autoconf automake which gnum4 python3 libxml2 libpng SDL2 SDL_compat SDL_image SDL_mixer" ...

Apart from the macOS builds now declared stable, there are mostly bugfixes in there. And if you are wondering why there are already newer betas and release candidates, those c...

Re: 0.2.9.2 Release Process: Final Staging

The hopefully final build is available: 0.2.9.2.1 . Why .1 already? .0 died a quick death to a sad trombone sound . The new builds are also available on the staging ppa . It was also supposed to appear on the zero install feed, but I borked that with a recent refactoring. Edit: No, it did not. Well,...

Re: NixOS: The last word in Armagetron hosting

This NixOS of yours, very clever. First post from NixOS. What gave me the final push is this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwfKlX3rA6E Yeah, this looks very tantalizing, especially for developers. Most of the benefits of Docker, Flatpak, ZeroInstall etc. without most of the drawbacks. No c...

Re: 0.2.9.2 Release Process: Beta

Thanks for the feedback! Umm. Funny thing. Remember way back, when we found out that the clever pattern to avoid null checks before function calls class X { void f() { if(!this) return; // do some actual work } } was undefined behavior, the compiler was allowed to assume 'this' was never null and th...
