Neat!

Say, this is pretty neat! Would you mind if I restructure the makefile code for that a bit? Move some of the common bits in Makefile.global? And somehow see to it that ony those files that are actually changed by beautifying get an updated mtime? Currently, after beautification, you are forced to do...

klax: ok, added it. The module name is armagetronad_build_eclipse ( hey, modules can't be nested, so long names are better ) I am still working on the readme, but if you just check both AA and the build project out using eclipse itself, you will find some make targets in AA/build and the same again ...

I think I see what you're saying. So LD_RUN_PATH is something the executable tells the loader where to look for linked libraries for itself, while the other one tells the loader where to look for linked libraries for all executables? Is that right? I see the problem now. ;) Yep. On a side note, I j...

Good idea. The server can surely use more information on how its activity affects client lag ( and the client could use that info, too ). However, there is a lot of non-network stuff going on between the rounds ( reloading of graphics ). How about the following modification: The peers send package a...

Bug Anti-Defamation League?? Whoa! There are too many negations in this for me to morally evaluate... A bug is something bad, right? Defaming is usually bad, too. That makes defaming a bug.... and preventing the defamation of a bug.... AAAARGH. I'm confused! The usual bugs aside, I currently have a ...

Eclipse

Is anyone except me using this IDE? It is cross-platform and has some wonderful features: CVS integration that can show you readable diffs before you commit, an integrated debugger almost as useful as that of visual c++ and of course syntax highlighting and automatic indentation and quite usable sou...

Just to clarify my intention: I want this gcc-version-switch for easy testing of different configurations. It is solely intended for developer use, the normal users should NOT do it. I just want a way to make as sure as possible that AA runs on as many configurations as I can test without installing...

That brings me to the Windows side of the problem :) I dimly remember that you can install different compilers there, too, and have all accessible from the Visual Studio IDE. The intel compiler installation would do that automatically, and you could then switch somehow between the intel and microsof...

D'oh! It's actually quite simple... Edit: the basic principle, I mean. The details are of course horrible. You install the various versions of GCC in whacky prefixes where they are out of every normal path, like /usr/local/gcc-VERSION. That way, they don't interfere with the rest of your system unle...

Multiple installations of GCC and libraries

Does anyone of you know a good way to handle those? What I would like would be something like this: > mkdir tron-3.4 > mkdir tron-3.3 # fill both dirs with the source.... > gcc-config --set-version 3.4 > cd tron-3.4 # compile using gcc 3.4 and its libraries > ./configure; make # run with libraries f...

(somedays I forget my head at home lol) hehehe Sounds familiar.

I collected my favorite versions for each fix and committed it. The ...

I'm still trying to understand the reinterpret_cast lesson (I understood the 'this' lesson) ;P Good. That makes you more of a language lawyer than a pointer wizard. In C++, pointer wizards tend to get themselves into trouble, as you can see here. The very basic lesson to learn is that reinterpret_c...

Uff! I needed 3 reads of your post to understand something lol That was the intention :) No, seriously, sorry if I did not make myself clear. The basic point is that this particular code change ( just removing reinterpret_cast ) turns evil pointer magic into syntactically correct, but wrong ( and c...

Possible explanation

( Background: We have shiny new AMD 64 machines here at the institute and I tried to set up Armagetron Advanced on mine. The source required some modification before it compiled and ran, so I decided to poke around a bit to see what progress has been made for 64 bit compatibility. Knowing that it is...
