Yeah, mostly CPU. Memory's cheap, they say, and the GCC uses a shitload compared to the sleekest around (Clang, however incomplete). But yes, I notice a huge jump from single core to even just dual core. I don't notice much difference between dual and quad, though, so. I think there's an option for number of CPUs to use in the GCC, but I don't make use of it.
Then do it already.

Anyway, downloaded r618, extracted, ran ENIGMA, got told that it found MinGW, so I clicked Yes, but it failed to do anything. So I uninstalled, removed the MinGW folder, and ran ENIGMA again, this time clicking No. A bunch of text appeared in the console, and then I thought it got stuck, but in actually, it was just taking forever to download MinGW.

This is what the console wrote during installation. Sorry for the wrapping. It's cmd.exe's fault. It probably took 15 minutes for ENIGMA to download MinGW. Maybe you should host MinGW in your Dropbox public folder, hehe.

Some specs (school computer, using that right now):
 - OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
 - Processor: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU W3520 @ 2.67GHz
 - RAM: 4 GB
This happened to me to, exactly the same. However I made sure all traces of Enigma and MinGW was completely removed the next time, rebooted and ran r618 again and it worked. Don't worry it installs rather fast, it's the errors which are slowing the instillation down.

However directly after installing, I tried to run a GM file. And I got this error:

Quote
Unknown compilation settings for your platform. Perhaps your platform isn't supported.
I no longer got it after restarting LGM though.

But when I tried to run again, I got this error:

Quote
This application has failed to start because OpenAL32.dll was not found.
But after installing OpenAL manually Enigma appears to all be working correctly :)

So congrats, I think the hard part is all done now.

If introducing quad core support DEFINATELY won't eff anything up, is there anyway i can convince you to utilize it?

Actually, screw that, switches, you sexy boy.

The GCC probably only supports dual-core.

eight cores? 512mb of ram? Sounds like a school thing to do.

Okay I downloaded the newest Enigma (r618) and it said that MinGW was found, but was missing a library. It gave me the option to un-install it, and reinstall from scratch or try overwriting the existing MinGW. I chose to uninstall my older version, then re-download it all through Enigma (to reduce the amount of possible bugs). I started up Enigma and it download a whole bunch of things, however when I went to compile the "CompilerSource" it pops me up the error:

mingw32-g++.exe: CreateProcess: No such file or directory

I know this is not an enigma error, but I've only encountered it after I uninstalled my previous version of MinGW and installed it through Enigma. I can not seem to compile anything, even my older projects that have worked fine before. I checked the compiler paths to make sure that it was pointing to the right directory and it seems to be correct. "C:\MinGW". I was wondering if you could help me out here, on this probably newb error. I am a beginner with C++ BTW.

Thank you very much

The school computer that I'm using uses eight cores
do they even offer prebuilt oct-core machines

Use Add/Remove programs in the control panel to uninstall MINGW, if it's not in that listing, go into C:\ and delete MinGW, re-download a fresh SVN for ENIGMA, or if Josh supplied a download link in this thread, use that (I use the SVN), then run ENIGMA.exe from there.

I'm not sure, Brett. Can you paste Compilers/Windows/gcc.ey? And the whole terminal output, that'd help. I need to know where Make is getting the mingw-g++.exe idea from. It should be able to find it, though, anyway... hmm...

I fixed it by doing what MrGriggs said. Enigma seems to compile and run fine (windows 7, 32 bit).

Now my only problem is that Enigma claims that OpenAL32 is missing from my computer. It is there (in my system32 folder), but I solved this problem by pasting it into the Enigma folder. When re-distributing games with made with enigma will I have to include this dll with the game?



Also, to add my own functions to Enigma, do I go into the ENIGMAEngine Codeblocks project and simply add functions, or do I have to add them to a list, map or array some place?

Thank you very much!!

In one of the child directories in the main ENIGMA folder, you'll find a OpenAl.exe installer... I can't remember where it exactly is and I can't look for you as I'm not at a machine that allows me to do this atm. (Being at work and all)

http://connect.creativelabs.com/openal/Downloads/oalinst.zip

Or download this and install OpenAl from there. :)

Hope this helps!

It's probably best if you also try this, unless you didn't save the error before you fixed it :\, because it will help Josh in determining the issue and what to use to counteract such an occurance in the future.

Yeah, I still need to run that, but I'm afraid it'll gripe that it's not privileged. I'll add that now.

You going to cause the executable for the installer to run, or extract the neccessary DLLs from the installer and use ENIGMA to throw them where they should be and add the neccessary paths.
