I finally found the time today to start looking into the task of upgrading the win32 devkit to use fifechan instead of guichan.

The good news is:
* I was able to build fifechan, fifechan_sdl (linked against SDL 1.2.15) and fifechan_opengl with mingw just fine
* I updated SDL (for mingw) to 1.2.15, SWIGwin to 2.0.8 and scons-local to 2.2.0
* Initial testing showed nothing wrong, the FIFE demos worked just fine

The bad news is:
* I don't have much free time on my hand right now as I'm just getting started in my first job
* I neither have MSVC2005 nor MSVC2008 installed right now and don't have the time and motivation to set these things at this point
* I don't want to make empty promises, so I'm leaving updating the SDK for msvc2005 & msvc2008 to whoever hopefully finds the time and motivation to do so

What still needs to be done:
* The mingw-portion of the SDK has been updated and works just fine
* We'll still need to update the SDK for msvc2005 & msvc2008:
** SDL 1.2.15: libs to link against, DLLs
** fifechan, fifechan_opengl, fifechan_sdl (link against SDL 1.2.15)

An updated Win32 SDK can be found here that contains the above mentioned changes (updated scons, swig, SDL & fifechan_* for mingw):
http://files.parpg.net/fife_sdk_nov2012_prelease.7z

The patch inside the archive just changes one line in the win32-config.py to use swig 2.0.8 instead of 2.0.1, which shipped with the April 2012 devkit. I'm sorry that I don't have the time on my hands to help out more at this point but I hope that's at least a starting point and that somebody else can finish where I left off.

General discussion / Public FIFEGuard logs
« on: February 11, 2011, 03:53:50 pm »
Heya FIFE devs :-)

As UH-Guard is currently down, it would be nice to have alternative IRC logs. I noticed that FIFEGuard is on the channel, but I couldn't figure out:
a) if it logs the channel
b) if it does so, if there are public channel logs and where they are

If FIFEGuard logs aren't public right now, could we make them public so the channel is logged again?

The FIFE docs that are kindly hosted by boxbox.org are currently down.

Some of you might have noticed, that the server became a little unstable in the past days. This is why the administrators decided to reinstall the system. Currently most services are offline. Please be patient. We will keep you up-to-date.

As soon as the logs are online again, I'll let you know.

General discussion / Trac anti spam addon: lessons learned from PARPG
« on: December 01, 2010, 05:55:41 am »
We at PARPG have been recently fighting spam at Trac but finally seem to have found a solution that actually blocks the spam but let's valid tickets through.

We installed an anti spam plugin for Trac at codesion.com, added keys for the typepad anti spam API and set the rejection handler to CAPTCHA, using google's reCAPTCHA API. So far, all valid tickets went through just fine while all spam got blocked. What's great about it is that even valid tickets that look suspicious, for whatever reason there may be, can get through. The submitter just has to solve a captcha in this case.

I know that you're currently not facing any spam issues at your Trac, but AFAICT the current system also blocks a bunch of valid tickets, which can be quite frustrating. So if you like, I can set up things for you, get you a typepad key and set up recaptcha.

General discussion / FIFE wiki upgrade
« on: November 16, 2010, 07:24:10 am »
Just upgrading the wiki software again to be up to date, especially security-wise. I'll give you a pointer once the update is complete.

Do NOT edit the wiki while it's upgraded as all edits that are performed during the upgrade will be lost!

EDIT: The wiki has been upgraded. Let me know if you experience any odd problems, especially with our wiki skin.

General discussion / Cleaning up the download wiki article
« on: December 29, 2009, 03:08:35 am »
Right now the download article at the wiki is rather cluttered:
http://wiki.fifengine.net/index.php?title=Download_section

Proposals:
1. Get rid of the Fallout patches section or move it at least to a separate article.
2. Get rid of the Audio pack section or move it at least to a separate article.
3. Adjust the Linux, Mac & Win32 templates; they occupy quite some space right now and somehow look odd. Hard to properly describe it but hopefully somebody got an idea how they could be improved  (or prolly entirely removed):

General discussion / New FIFE logo proposal
« on: October 22, 2009, 03:09:40 am »
Heya lads :-)

As we're relaunching the project, a new logo might be a good way to visually underline the new beginning. AndrewBC, one of the new programmers at PARPG, created a logo draft for FIFE. What do you think? All kind of feedback appreciated, he's open to suggestions to further refine it:

See this ticket:
http://fife.trac.cvsdude.com/engine/ticket/362

Is anyone familiar with the vfs code and take a look into it? I'm rather puzzled if the FIFE vfs code (boost vfs library) is to blame or if Python is the culprit.

Framework development / New SVN / trac URL
« on: August 06, 2009, 09:18:04 am »
Cvsdude.com recently migrated FIFE to their new project interface. This migration process caused some changes but also problems.

Changes:
New SVN URL: http://fife.svn.cvsdude.com/engine
New Trac URL: http://fife.trac.cvsdude.com

Problems:
Currently anonymous SVN access is broken. I've already activated anonymous access in the admin interface but it's still broken nevertheless. Fortunately activating anonymous access for Trac did at least work out so you can access Trac again without requiring a user / pass combo.

If you run into more problems besides broken anonymous SVN access, let me know. I've mailed the cvsdude support about it and hopefully they can resolve the problem before the weekend.

EDIT: I've tried to update SVN and Trac references at the FIFE wiki but I'm sure that there a bunch of references that I forgot to update. If you spot any references to the old URLs at the wiki, please update them or report them here in case you don't have a wiki account.

Framework development / Building FIFE on Vista 64
« on: April 27, 2009, 05:46:22 pm »
As one of the interested programmers of PARPG recently tried to build FIFE on his system but failed to get it working, I took a closer look into it today. My room mate runs a Vista 64 system and I was able to reproduce the issue here: the normal 32bit mingw compiler that ships with the SDK does simply segfault when g++ is called.

I've decided to download a special 64bit mingw distro and give it a try. Downloaded it from here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/

Actually g++ started to build FIFE now after I renamed the binaries to the default names (g++.exe instead of x86_64-pc-mingw32-g++.exe). However the build process was not successful as it complained about a build error. I've attached the build log; would be great if somebody could look into it and try to come up with a fix.

EDIT: seems to be a cast issue in logger.h, in the last template.
