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:

While I do agree the BP builds at least provide good testing for the 3.7 pilot code.

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:

Speaking as a layman who has no idea about SCP's inner workings, I like this. Very much.

And here's some more Linux builds 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.

Glad you appreciate it. :)  We also support VC2005 and VC6, though I haven't posted builds compiled under those environments.  I suppose I should.

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.

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.

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?

No, the current mediavp version is the 3.6.12

Milestone achieved, congrats.

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).

Re: Release: 3.6.16 Final
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.

"older" versions of Windows?
