After a long break from doing any mapping, I have got the fresh copy of MapMaker for Linux and Windows compiled on Windows again, and have been taking a look at one of the more neglected maps, fixing a few MapMaker bugs in the process.

Note for Tori: I have specifically been looking at your map, getting the textures to match up with their current location. This has given me the excellent opportunity to fix some bugs in the texture loader. When I have updated the map to match what it should look like, I will email you.

Well, as per request, there have been several modifications to Chat, including:

  • Getting sounds played when your own nickname is said in a message not by you

  • not being able to (accidentally) edit the Chat history via the box being read only

  • Chat history word-wraps


  • Sort out the scrollbars so that less are unnecessarily displayed

For those of the team who want it, the new version is now released and I will work on the scrollbar stuff when I get some more time.

Chat server/client

May 10, 2010 by DX-MON |
Well, as promised, Chat is here!
It has taken me all weekend, granted, but it's worth it I think. Those of the team who have been online over the weekend have been helping me test the new client which is now happily able to talk to my 64-bit Linux server. So, now the real testing starts - normal usage.

This set of programs mean that the Chat client and server source-code is now in the repositories as is the upgraded packet management code. Next stop: Get Future Consciousness upgraded followed shortly by MapMaker. I'm expecting not too much hastle with these upgrades.

Repositories and dev progress

May 05, 2010 by DX-MON |
I've recently (last few hours) booted back into Windows and after which I've then been re-pointing my working copies of the source-code to the repository system the project uses. This is all good news especially as the team can now access the latest and most up-to-date copies of anything and everything Gamma from them.

Consequent to that update, I am now updating the repositories with my pre-go-to-Linux changes, after which I will then start applying my changes from Linux to my working copies, recompiling everything. Depending on how quickly that goes and when it goes on to, I will post again soon announcing to the team the release of Chat, which for Windows will come packaged in an installer for them.
