Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.13.3 (combined launcher/installer)
Hi!

I can help test and debug the packaging of knossos and QT on OSX, I think. I use a mac for all my freespace stuff. I can definitely reproduce the issue with the 14.0 RC1 download you posted (the window shows up but it's just grey).

I don't have that much experience with QT, but am a generally experienced programmer and debugger.

I don't know what usage numbers are like for macs, but personally I'd like to help fix the issue if possible. Did anything change with the packaging of Knossos between the main 0.13.3 release and this RC?

Thanks

Tom

I am eagerly anticipating improved Mac support, keep changing MacBook at work and just don't have the time I used to to help develop it myself, but do attempt to report testing results of each new release.

I don't know if this is the correct thread or if the FSO 19.0.0-RC1 one would be more appropriate. Some time ago, since I only have an Intel integrated graphic card and shadows hit my FPS really hard, I was suggested to add the "-no_glsl" flag to FSO. It still does the job, even if now I'm getting an "Unrecognized command line parameter" error. This flag, along with the -disable_glsl_model, should be in the Troubleshooting tab (source: https://wiki.hard-light.net/index.php/Command-Line_Reference#Troubleshooting), but I don't see them in Knossos.
"-no_glsl" along with "-disable_glsl_model" have been removed for a while now and do not have any effect anymore. You probably had these issues back when shadows were enabled by default which is no longer the case. Now they need to be enabled explicitly.

Thank you for the info! :D Indeed I removed the flags and the fps are the same... Seems like this time around the issues I was having were caused by vsync (which now is solved).

Could somebody with the required knowledge update the wiki page than?

Here is an odd question for you guys: if I'm creating around half a dozen of sub-mods for another mod, should I group them all togheter into an unique mod called something along the lines of "fan tweaks", or should I create several separate mods and "spam" Knossos with 1 or 2 KB mods?

I'd rather like to use the first option, but I'm reading the documentation (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1oHq1YRc1eXbCgW-NqqKo1-6N_myfZzoBdwZuP16XImA/edit?pli=1#) and it's written that I have to create at least 1 "required" package... so I would have to make an empty .vp file, correct? (since all the actual sub-mods packages will be "optional")

Like, that empty .vp file will be "required" and have the parent mod as requirement.

I'm getting a weird error when I try to install a couple different campaigns from Knossos 0.13.3 in Linux Mint.  "A critical error has occurred! Knossos might not work correctly until you restart it.  The error has been reported and will hopefully be fixed soon."

I haven't tried every possible campaign to install yet, but I keep getting it consistently with "The Mantle" and with the recently reuploaded "Friends and Foes" campaigns.  I posted this awhile back in Bomb3rman's release thread, but he isn't sure what could be the problem.

Are these issues actually getting reported to someone somewhere?  Is there anything I can do on my end to help diagnose?  I know Linux is probably not the preferred platform for Knossos or FSO, but for the most part I've been able to get both to work!  Just a couple befuddling exceptions, which is unfortunate because I really like both of these campaigns!  (An aside shout out: if you haven't played Friends and Foes or The Mantle yet, do yourself a favor and DO SO!  Solid, quality missions with good writing and characterization!  And they are fun to play!)
