The .exes are smaller or larger depending on the changes to their code. :wtf:

But the BtRL .EXEs haven't been changed, and neither have the FS2 core VPs.  The final .EXEs don't change.

The BtRL exes changed when we patched the game.

Must've been small changes, the difference was only bytes for each of them.

Why would you expect code changes to result in large changes in size?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Any reason why 3.6.10 doesn't have Text-to-Speech?

Because it's only an unofficial build.

Official Build Expected When?

That's not quite the reason.

All official builds have speech compiled in. Beyond that it's up to the individual coder. For instance my builds always have speech compiled in cause I use the feature heavily when testing missions.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Oops. Sorry Spartan.When I looked at your first post I thought you said "Speech recognition". No, text-to-speech is a standard feature, has been from at least 3.6.7 IIRC. Hence, since the RC builds are built on the previous version of the SCP, it should be in 3.6.10 unofficial.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Uh, dude? 3.6.10 is both official and unofficial. When they announce a 3.6.10 release, it's official. Consider the latest builds we have right now (Xt builds) 3.6.10 alphas or betas.

Also, did you read karajorma's post?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
But the 3.6.10 builds just add on to 3.6.9. If text-to-voice is in 3.6.9, why would they remove it in any build?

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Both speech recognition and speech synthesis are Windows only features requiring the presence of Microsoft's SAPI on the coders machine. The project files must be set up to build using SAPI or the exe must be compiled with the switches to allow both features turned off.

Taylor always turns on the feature for official builds but doesn't bother with any others. I always have it turned on since rather than manually set up new project files when I want a new branch I just diff an old one with WinMerge and that makes it less hassle keep them turned on than it would be to turn them off again.

Other coders may or may not depending on whatever they were doing.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
So, any downloads I can get to enable text-to-speech? I'm not seeing it in the launcher.

Re: FreeSpace Open Installer! Download it now!
Why do you want 3.6.10 anyway? Unless you've got a showstopper bug with 3.6.9 or are willing to help beta test you're probably better sticking with 3.6.9.

If you are willing to test you can try this build of mine if you want. You'll need 7Zip or equivalent to unpack it though. It's based on CVS so it won't have the extras of a xt build.

An experimental SEXP to let you change them on the fly and another one to let you determine who has done damage to whom. Neither are guaranteed to be in 3.6.10 (or 3.6.11 for that matter) so don't get too attached to them.

Sounds like a good idea for ships with copilots though.

Didn't mean to get it, just grabbed Turey's Installer and it installed 3.6.10. I needed it after I had to reinstall FreeSpace 2.... :ick:
