WC Saga FS2_open source code
just one question:

is the MacOS X WCS source merged with the 3.6.10 trunk (rev 4611)?

I cannot find in the source, why WCS is reading the "cmdline_fso.cfg" in ".../Library/WCS Prologue/data" and a "normal" FS2_Open build in ".../Library/FS2_Open/data".

And remember: I talk about MacOS X builds, not Windows.

Re: WC Saga FS2_open source code
I have no idea. I believe that the executable included with the MacOS version is 3.6.9 RC8.

Re: WC Saga FS2_open source code
Taylor answered this one on another forum but although you have a build based on 3.6.9 Official there are some minor changes to make it look in a different place for the pilot file etc on Mac OS X and Linux. It's the same for BtRL and sooner or later we'll have to make that change for TBP too.

IIRC the plan is to change things so that the game can figure out the correct directory for itself cause having to recompile builds just to change stuff like that is a pain in the butt I'd imagine.

Re: WC Saga FS2_open source code
ok... I think i have a working build out of SVN rev 4617 (3.6.10) for Wing Commander Saga...

The old 3.6.9 build for MacOS X has a lot of minor problems, so i think the one that I compiled is quite worth a look.

MacOS X Wing Commander Saga 3.6.10 build rev 4617 2008-05-04

EDIT: download the newer build with fixed Mantis #1683 (fixed by taylor)

MacOS X Wing Commander Saga 3.6.10 build rev 4618 2008-05-06

Edit 2009-01-03: Use the link in my sig

Just copy the extracted application to your "Wing Commander Saga Prologue" folder and enjoy...

Re: WC Saga FS2_open source code
What are the changes to the original 3.6.9 executable besides fixing the pilot file problem?

Re: WC Saga FS2_open source code
SVN 4617 still has the wing bug which may cause some problems
