Some are not mods, just testing some stuff  :p
Anyway first run is weird because play button is still there, but after minimalizing or on second run it disappears.
Dropdown lists are normal. Weird is speech part.

Re: wxLauncher Test Builds [Updated: 2016-03-19]
Are there any special requirements for a mod folder to be recognised in wxlauncher? I have one I've been working on which works fine on the old Launcher (and has a mod.ini etc) but doesn't appear in the mod list in wxlauncher. Others do including very old mods but not my one.

Cheers.

I think you just need a mod.ini in a sub-folder, I've created a number of test mods which work fine with wxL.  Maybe post the contents of your mod.ini?

Okay. At the moment it's in a folder called 'Guiding_Star' and has a 'data' folder and mod.ini with this;
Code: [Select]
[launcher]
modname = Guiding Star;
infotext = As the last days of the Neo-Terran Front begin, the GTD Aeneas and 6th Fleet lead a slow bloody march into the NTF homeland of Polaris.;

[multimod]
primarylist  = ;
secondrylist = MediaVPs_2014;

I can load it through the older launcher fine, so I think it's working game-wise, it just isn't appearing for some reason (despite other folders with almost identical .inis also showing up).

EIDT: This is using the 0.10.1 beta btw. I grabbed it through Goob's installer.

Re: wxLauncher Test Builds [Updated: 2016-03-19]
that seems quite similar to a working one I have:

Code: [Select]
# PLEASE NOTE ALL INI SETTINGS ARE *OPTIONAL*

# modname:       Display name only, so you can have spaces instead of underscores for multi word MOD's
# image255x112:  Location of a 255x112 bmp you wish to display in the launcher
# infotext:      Text that will appear in the launcher
# website:       Link to your website
# forum:         Link to your forum
[launcher]
modname      = CM Test (mvp)
#image255x112 = ;;bplogo.bmp;
image182x80 = mantis182.bmp;
infotext     = Testing Counter Measure Changes WITH mediavps
[multimod]
secondarylist = mediavps_2014;

Maybe update "secondrylist" to "secondarylist"?

Also, have you restarted wxL after creating/updating the mod.ini?

yeah, I thought it should be ok as well (coders can't spell?  ;7), but in the absence of anything else obviously wrong... (I mean, maybe wxL didn't propagate the backwards compatibility spelling?)

(pardon slow reply; had to hit the sack)

Hadn't noticed that, sadly didn't work (checked through working mods and some of them had the misspelling too).

The good news is I finally got it working a moment ago; in the end I deleted the mod.ini and made a new one from scratch. Occoured to me I have had a couple of cases in the past where I've worked with text files and for some reason it hasn't recognised the new text till it's re-typed. It seemed to be if the info ended up in a slightly different font to the norm (not quite sure what caused it, assume it was times I was using wordpad not notepad or cut-pasting from word?).

Bad news is I'm a complete idiot and didn't think to preserve the broken one to compare and see what was breaking it. :banghead: If it ever happens again I'll be sure to preserve it.

You  have file extensions un-hidden, right?   So you can see if you ended up with a mod.ini.txt?  To prevent it from occuring, either put quotes around the name+extension in the Save As dialog, or choose file type "all file types (*.*)" before saving.

See the wxLauncher wiki on the mod options.  Basically, the only requirement is that a mod.ini exists in a folder, doesn't matter how deep.  Note that wxLauncher only scans for mods when it starts or when the TC selection is changed.

0.12.0-rc.2 has been posted.  Currently looking for some volunteers to produce the OS X build.

Should have fixed the issue with the bottom buttons vanishing (though they still disappear if the screen resolution is too low vertically or the DPI is too high).

Re: wxLauncher Test Builds [Updated: 2016-03-19]
Ok, I had python installed, installed wxWidgets 3.0.2 with Homebrew because my OS is too new to compile 2.8.x, copied the SDL2.framework to my /Libraries/Frameworks folder, and CMake still complains that it can't find SDL2.

Code: [Select]
Checking for one of the modules 'sdl2'
CMake Error at /Applications/CMake.app/Contents/share/cmake-3.6/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:646 (message):
  None of the required 'sdl2' found
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  CMakeLists.txt:152 (PKG_SEARCH_MODULE)

Not sure if including the log would help, it doesn't even contain the string 'sdl'.

Re: wxLauncher Test Builds [Updated: 2016-03-19]
Ok, quick question. Is it only the post 3.7.4 builds that actually correctly identify attached game controllers once you have a binary selected in wxLauncher?
There are only 10 kinds of people in the world;
those who understand binary and those who don't.

Hey mod authors! Did you know you can customize wxL's recommended lighting preset through your mod.ini? Check it out!

I copied the official sdl2 framework as that's the same as the archive one (or it should be), to /Library/Frameworks.  I'll try the user folder next chance I get.

I'll see if I can get the new wxL to build and run on OS X. I haven't made a build in a while and also not on El Capitan/Xcode 7. EDIT: Also haven't tried wxWidgets 3 before, so a bunch of new things to try.

Simple question I think:

If there's a new version just made, shouldn't the thread title be updated?  The thread title still says March 19.


EDIT:  Never mind, it was just the post title I saw.

@chief1983: it looks like pkg-config can't find sdl2.

Looking at how the CI builds for OSX seems to be using brew to install sdl2 and other things.

@ct27: yep, oops.  Fixed now

@LaineyBugsDaddy: Yes, only FSO builds that have SDL will have the SDL joystick handling (though the useless name fix (where they were all called Joystick should apply either way).

I have not been tracking FSO development to know if the SDL code is in 3.7.4 or just in the nightlys.

I'm not sure pkg-config is the right way on OS X> I think CMake should be able to find SDL2.framework if you put it in the right place and tell it where it is. At least that's how it worked with SDL.framework. However it doesn't seem to work with SDL2.framework, and so far I'm not sure if the issue is with SDL2 or more recent versions of CMake or more recent versions of OS X (Xcode?).

Or alternatively, maybe wxL actually was using an OS X system copy of SDL rather than the provided SDL.framework and I've misunderstood the entire time? :confused: Time to do an otool -L (OS X equivalent of Linux's ldd) and see what the wxL executable is linked against. EDIT: otool -L confirms that the wxL executable on OS X is linked against the provided SDL.framework and not some OS X system copy of SDL. Phew.

I'm thinking the CMakeLists.txt will need some tweaking to work for OS X. I've spent some time looking into it but not much progress so far. It also looks like the ReadMe's build instructions for OS X are in serious need of an update; I'll need to fix that.

Also SDL2 is just in the nightlies, not 3.7.4.
