Proposals / Re: A couple ideas (ENIGMA and LGM at the same time)
« on: June 17, 2014, 05:52:53 PM »
You forget, we have sorlok and egofree as well trying to help out. The rest of you are so afraid to challenge yourselves so you don't bother even trying. And I liked lonewolf, the only time I bitched was you two getting crazy about Nvidia being gods which really pissed me off, but that I still liked him. The only other conflict I seen with him is Rusky being a troll, but I'm certain since lonewolf disappeared from other sites as well that he's probably just having a rough time in general.

Sorry TKG, I thought you were already aware of that. Maybe I should have been a little more descriptive. The scaling options should from game settings should have been per viewport, and that would have solved this.

Go make a post on gamedev.net and other game development sites, that's what I used to do. People don't know about us if nobody knows we exist.

The real problem TKG is that nobody ever finished documenting the format, and it has probably changed with Studio. We don't have a reader in Java or C++ for reading their extension binaries. GMX extension resources are much more likely though because those use an unencrypted format. So they would be the best place to start. I just don't have time for anything anymore.

Asu, a big part of these problem is that ENIGMA is bi-sexual. It's either remain compatible with GM and do all the stupid shit they do, or do everything our own way which is a lot riskier. Or maintain two projects, one that's not retarded and one that is retarded.

Like extension packages, there's no reason anybody should want to use them, they suck, they are horribly implemented in GM, the format is proprietary and as bad as the GMK format. ENIGMA gives you the source code so you don't even need an extension package system with ENIGMA. IsmAvatar clearly recognized this and she never bothered to do extensions and that's why I don't either.

As for the code editor, we use a custom rolled code editor by Josh called JoshEdit, good lucky getting him to fix anything, and I can barely muddle my way through the thing. It's also extremely laggy/slow/unoptimal.

As for the variable_exists and execute_string stuff that would all be possible using compiler scripts with Josh's new compiler.

As for the wiki, anybody can contribute, if you are registered with the forums, then you are registered for the wiki, so go ahead and start documenting, I documented well over a thousand pages. It takes a village (you gays) to raise a child (ENIGMA).

Thank you sorlok! Good work everyone. And Harri get to work on fixing those lights!

Edit: I have updated the latest ISO compliant version fixing all file paths for UNIX switching \\ for /
If I have missed any, please tell me.

I see Robby you still want to keep a broken full screen system that will only benefit dual monitor users, so that'srreally upsetting to see again.
Or you could control the behavior yourself using the display functions. :P

I still don't see how any of you justify dumbing down the rest of the system when you can easily use features in ENIGMA that have not been removed. The view is just the ortho projection, the port is the native viewport. This is the native behavior of views for all the API's, if you don't want a big view on a small screen, then don't set a big view on a small screen.

ENIGMA only has DirectShow for Windows. Were discussing the implementation for other platforms.

It's the parser, it does this with all functions in the room creation code, I just reproduced it easily. Place it in an object and it tells you the correct error message without having to check the extended log. I don't know why.

@Robert: Nobody asked him for his source code :P  But more information would be helpful don't you think ?  He mentions he deleted the room create code and it still has errors which is odd.  Also I could not reproduce this on my end, room creation code works here, so it would be good to know the other circumstances triggering this.
Exactly, I meant you both should have elaborated more by getting him to elaborate more.

@TKG enigma-dev/output_log.txt let's see what that yields.

Here's what mine says.

So basically, you are trying to use audio_stop_music which is deprecated in both Studio and ENIGMA. All music functions were deprecated because they were pointless, we never actually implemented them.

Proposals / Re: video_*() functions going cross-platform?
« on: June 15, 2014, 10:49:05 AM »
TKG, since the video functions on Windows just require a lib that's already in the mingw redistribution. It would be preferrable to find one for Linux/OpenGL that can be downloaded from/with a package manager.

Issues Help Desk / Re: Reading .ini files
« on: June 15, 2014, 10:47:01 AM »
Yeah the difference is because our file text reading functions are part of the c standard library and UNIX compatible, our INI functions only exist for Windows and are platform dependent. It's just Microsoft not following standards, if you have a problem with the inconsistency, take it up with them.

The issue had nothing to do with ini functions it was the file/directory name.

Change the first line to the following and it works in ENIGMA.
Code: (EDL) [Select]
ini_open(working_directory + "/test.ini")
The following will also work.
Code: (EDL) [Select]
ini_open("./test.ini")
Both of those will work in both ENIGMA and GM, so go ahead and just do that.

Apparantly the windows INI functions don't recognize the set working directory.

So GM must be appending it to the functions, I have no plans to fix that. It is more of a bug in Windows than in ENIGMA.
