Title: Release: 3.6.16 Final
Post by: chief1983 on February 01, 2013, 12:52:45 am
Welcome to Zombocom!  I mean, welcome to the release of 3.6.16 final!  This is based on revision 9518.  Enjoy!
Previous 3.6.14 Release Thread (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=82648.0)

Important!!
As always, you need OpenAL installed.  Linux and OS X come with it but Windows users will need to get Creative's OpenAL installer (http://connect.creativelabs.com/openal/Downloads/oalinst.zip).

Important!!
Also, since the internal code linking for TrackIR was revised, an external DLL is now required for FSO to use TrackIR functions.
The following DLL is simply unpacked in to you main FreeSpace2 root dir.
TrackIR is only supported on Windows.
TrackIR SCP DLL (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?ihzkihqj2ky) (Mirror (http://swc.fs2downloads.com/builds/scptrackir.zip)) (Mirror (http://scp.fsmods.net/builds/scptrackir.zip)) (Mirror (http://scp.indiegames.us/builds/scptrackir.zip))

Actually, the whole point this time was that no features were really added to trunk between 3.6.14 and 3.6.16, we merely bug fixed what was already in trunk already that wasn't in the last release.

I thought that was new pilot code (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=73257.0).

So, um, any bets on what the last version number of 2013 will be? Five bucks says it might be 3.6.22. (unless there's reason to go 3.7...)
Title: Re: Release: 3.6.16 Final
Post by: General Battuta on February 02, 2013, 02:35:16 am
3.7 is the new pilot code

Someone tell me if BP works on these builds with the deferred lighting stuff commented out, I'm away from PC

Battuta, we're also using the new mainhall stuff from Antipodes. Even with the deferred render stuff commented out, WiH is NOT, and will never really be, compatible with .16.

Title: Re: Release: 3.6.16 Final
Post by: The E on February 03, 2013, 11:13:50 am
You cannot play Blue Planet with these builds because BP uses features that will be in _future_ builds. Other campaigns and mods are unaffected by this.
Title: Re: Release: 3.6.16 Final

Just stick with the BP builds when playing Blue Planet, use this for other stuff.

That, or use BP builds for everything, like I do. Going from BP builds to 3.6.16 could actually be considered a downgrade. :) They're usually pretty stable (and if they aren't they're quickly fixed).

Bad idea, if you want to see next engine releases reasonably soon. Use various compatible test builds whenever possible and report encountered bugs. Shiny stuff is not the most important stuff  :nono:

I've been playing through a bunch of stuff with this release build, and it (like the RC) seems very stable.  I can't really quantify how much more stable, but I haven't run into any problems that weren't my own mod data.  :yes:

And here's some more Linux builds (https://build.opensuse.org/package/show?package=fs2open3616&project=home%3Aniffiwan) for different distros (32/64bit Intel architecture only).

  • To install, click the 'Download Package' link, select your OS and follow the instructions
  • RPMs install to /usr/bin, DEBs install to /usr/games/bin (eh - I just did what lintian recommended)
  • If you use wxlauncher, copy or link the binaries to your FSO/TC game folder so it can find them

Any feedback is appreciated! :D


Very good! Will try to check these out.

The nightly builds will soon enough have that feature in them, in the mean time we are still finding regressions in this release so testing the knightlies is still better.

Title: Re: Release: 3.6.16 Final
Post by: Goober5000 on February 24, 2013, 01:31:08 am
Glad you appreciate it. :)  We also support VC2005 and VC6, though I haven't posted builds compiled under those environments.  I suppose I should.
Title: Re: Release: 3.6.16 Final
Post by: Cyker on February 25, 2013, 04:10:44 am
I don't think VC6 works any more; I was trying to patch and compile a BP exe that worked on mine but there is a dependency in globalincs/vmallocator.h for an STL component that VC6 doesn't support (hash_map).

Going to try and find my 2005 Express Edition CD (Although that depends on me finding the ancient Learning Visual C++ book it was attached to :lol: ) and try that next! That at least should support hash_map.
Title: Re: Release: 3.6.16 Final
Post by: Goober5000 on February 25, 2013, 11:07:42 am
Yeah, hash_map isn't provided in the base VC6 library, I forgot to mention that.  On my list of things to do is to add a substitute from STLport.  That's currently the only thing that prevents full compatibilty.
Title: Re: Release: 3.6.16 Final
Post by: chief1983 on February 25, 2013, 11:19:22 am
VC6 works on 3.6.16, the BP patch is what is breaking compatibility I believe.

What is the current media VP version? I'm running version 3.6.12 at the moment, but as that's 2 versions behind the current build, maybe I've missed an update?

If there's a media package above 3.6.12, can someone chuck a link up for me please?

Why is it good that FS2 was compiled on VC2008 and not VC2010? and why you're looking to compile on older VC versions?

Why is it good that FS2 was compiled on VC2008 and not VC2010? and why you're looking to compile on older VC versions?

The answer to that question was in the post you are referencing. VS2010 and later can only make executables for Windows XP and later versions, but since some people still use older versions of Windows, they have to resort to using older compilers to make compatible executables.

(The problem with this, as evidenced here, is that those same compilers are not compatible with some of the newer C++ language features like std::hash_map that newer code uses).

Oh OK, thanks, I didn't know some people here still use Win 2K or older, anyway Win 2K is the oldest Windows that actually is worth using, maybe even supporting. I'd recommend to those users that you use old Windows for older system not for newer ones for some dumb romantic reasons, besides support hardware parts are not manufactured anymore so, move on.

Aren't code optimization being lost for not using VC2010 or newer? And I support the idea of having several VC compilings, but that would mean ever increasing diverging source code forks? it'd be easy or hard to maintain that forking?

Hi, I would like to thank all the people who created and offered FreeSpace Open. I bought my copy of FreeSpace 2 in 2001 and liked it very much since then. A really impressive and excellent game to me that I enjoyed to play a lot of times over the years. To my regret I was not able to get it running under Windows 7. :( But this has changed now thanks to you with FreeSpace Open. I am really happy that I am able to play it again. And it's great to explore your improvements and additions all the time. And based on what I've found out so far there could be a lot to explore for me. I'm looking forward to it. So, thank you very much again.  :)

Be sure to get the newer 3.6.18 release, this one had a pretty nasty damage bug.
