...That I knew enough Make? Well, I Lied.
I've committed revision 200, which contains some very simple makefiles that do exactly what I wanted. Except one little tidbit: I forgot that I'd need to outline for Make what every file depends upon, or it would rebuild the entire project. Every. Single. Time. As in, exactly what I spent hours and hours avoiding happening.
So yes, if you were to check out ENIGMA right now and click Run, LGM wouldn't display a damn thing, but (at least on Linux; haven't tested on Windows) it will build and run your game. I have not added sprites to the output; making it compile fast gets precedence.
However, above that precedent comes my homework. This is going to be the busiest two weeks of my life, and I need to account for that. I graduate from high school soon, but am taking all college classes. Most of which are upper-level. And I have exams coming up very quickly. 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. Political science final, on the other hand, will be my fourth grade in that class, and will make me suffer. I haven't exactly done superbly on any of that man's four other assignments, either. ...Calculus would be great if it wasn't an AP high school course. I'm stuck, with one other, among a group of people that can't grasp the AB material, and I'll be taking the BC. Bother, a couple questions of the AB are harder than the BC anyway. My utter success on the BC portion hinges on my memorization of some dozen different series. Not exactly fun... And I've got a huge number of memory quizzes coming up, for which I've not studied...
Anyway; point is, I've got a lot on my plate for these next couple weeks, and will probably put ENIGMA on the back burner until I'm done. It won't be long.
So, to do: Optimize makefiles, replace var and instance system, fix up syntax check more, reinstall sprite system, move some code up a directory, replace timer on Linux, carry out some in-code to-dos.
Less immediate to-do: Modify sprite system into parallel background system, add tiles to room, add cross platform widget functions to enable build mode.
Further to-dos: Comment generated code for easy error indexing.
Distant to-dos: Hook up GDB for some really neat debugger kicks.
Until then, ciao.
