I hope you survive your speech. I would suggest not plainly reading your 15 pages, have some sort of summary in your mind.
And a timeline, if late, and you can't say it all, you need to know what you can skip and what not.

I seriously hope somebody explained that to you, otherwise, good luck, you may do just fine anyway. :D

One is, as I've mentioned, a fifteen page report on Scientology. What I may have neglected to mention is that I will be highlighting this report in front of an estimated three hundred people. This is a new sort of WHAT THE... BUT HOW... RATHER, WHY? for me, as I'm sure you all can understand... Public speaking is easy when you know exactly what the hell it is you are talking about. I'm going to be up there explaining space planes and aliens and frozen souls to the mindless. ...Computer science final will be a take-home cakewalk.

Don't worry, maybe someone has watched the South Park episode about Scientology and somebody may have heard about Tom Cruise's religion. Also, there has been some rumors about Gold Base having barbed wire facing inside. :google:

In fact you might even find out that your audience already has some prejudice. Then it would be really important to get some facts. Smack in a lot of bibliography just for the sake of it, best if you quote books or people insted of websites.

Best of all, keep it simple and it will be more interesting for them to hear.

Sorry for being a smart-ass, but damn I like talks. One last note, be careful with irony if you want to be taken seriously.

Good luck fixing.

Found it, the bastard was named ENIGMAengine for some reasons. It works, but it's not fun.

The dot doesn't move until I mouse over it, unlike the gm clown which kept movin.

Ok, ok, I found that by myself, but it still doesn't run the game.

Probably it's because Enigma can't find the compiler, but why? It's MinGW, and it's inside C:\

I compiled Enigma inside the Download directory, may it be it?

I just clicked the Buid and Run button, Enigma compiled and LGM run.

The 11th plague of Egypt--
If you install MinGW right to C:\, both ENIGMA and Code::Blocks should detect it. If Code::Blocks doesn't detect it, just reinstall it (Code::Blocks). If it still doesn't detect it, feel free to give up. ENIGMA will be done soon enough.

I don't really "need" new testers, as it seems most of what will break has broken on the three platforms I now have access to, but a "yeah, it works!" is always nice to hear.
Cool, it worked straight after I installed MinGW. Still I don't know what's wrong about Cygwin.

Enigma compiled without giving any errors or warnings on my Windows 7 32 bits.

LGM started and let me open the game, but the Run button is not responding, not even after I click Compile.

BTW how do I start LGM again without rebuilding Enigma? Josh said to start it using the terminal, but I don't think he's referring to the Windows terminal. I see there is a terminal entitled C:\Windows\System32\java.exe running right now. Is that it?

Josh, is it still worth trying for me to get that darn compiler working?

Or may I try installing MinGW? I hope it's easier than Cygwin to set.

Hum, so you say that MinGW is lighter than Cygwin. Ok, but I need a command line to see my programs working.
If MinGW provides that too, maybe I'll switch.

The leaked one was original, finally they released the treaty, although covering up the positions of the variuos States.

The worst part so far is related to the so called "prior restraint", it means you can ban something because you have the suspect of a copyright violation.

Think about the SCO case: Perhaps SCO should have gotten an injuction to prevent anyone from distributing any version of Linux while the courts figured it all out. After all, they were claiming copyright infringement, exactly the type that would be covered in this treaty. SCO even brought the case to full fruition. This is 100% the type of case that can be subject to being enjoined. Imagine if that happened, and the judge decided that everyone that didn't have an SCO license also needed to take their Linux servers down for infringment.

C::B is set to use the Cygwin G++ compiler and it works for my personal projects.
I don't know why it doesnt' for Enigma. Maybe I'll get MinGW too, but why shouldn't it work now?
Maybe I'm doing something else wrong, and installing MinGW wouldn't help at all.
EDIT: maybe it's because my g++ is v3.4 instead of 4, but v4 don't show when I try updating

I've installed the native Windows C::B, but I it still needs a compiler. I have 2 options: Cygwin and MinGW.
Basically they do the same, they bring the ease of linux compiling to windows.

btw cygwin is not something like wine for windows, I'm not trying to run the linux C::B inside windows :pseudo:

No, I have the Cygwin GCC compiler. It works for the hello world program, and for my code.

I've just tried to compile Enigma. I get this error. Should I modify something before compiling?
Also, the file libzlib.a is already present in the source, should I overwrite it?

"compileEGMf - Release" uses an invalid compiler. Skipping...
Nothing to be done.

Ok, my C::B can now compile simple c++ files. How can I help?
