I have to say another time: good work Sull! Maybe 3,9 MB it's a little big for the 0.0.4 version.
What's the problem in win2linux.h? Maybe I can help...

thats because he come with the masking and alfont library they are already precompiled for easy

im not sure about the win2linux header because i cant test it now,the socket look like to work
but i still have to verify

thats the code

#define LPTHREAD_START_ROUTINE void *(*)(void *)
#define CloseHandle close
thats how i define it

and for

Code: Select all

//recv_thread = CreateThread(NULL, 0, (LPTHREAD_START_ROUTINE) &receive, (LPVOID) 0, 0, NULL);
line 161 map.cpp (for me)
what they used to,is it nesesary?

win2linux code seems correct

the recv_thread is used because win32 socket function "recv" is blocking so the main game loop will wait to recieve some data from the server. This is not acceptable, but using a thread recieving data will be asynchronous.

just got connected on the server ! =)
i see blue square in a map

i dont think we can move right?

the problem is if you go too far on rgith you get into the warp point so it's better to stay on the left part (on the isle)

yea but how we move? lol

thats ok i just found i think my socket doesnt work at 100%

createthread is (in win32) to handle the packets better,
but i think it might block?
but i think unix has some other function for it..

it was big file because i think font freetype and masking (maybe for unix) were included^^

some news
1-modified some file in the tar
the map server didnt work at begin but i modified

Code: Select all

recv_thread = CreateThread(NULL, 0, (LPTHREAD_START_ROUTINE) &receive, (LPVOID) 0, 0, NULL);

Code: Select all

pthread_create(&p_thread, NULL,receive, NULL);
and replaced the command "receive" by

Code: Select all

void *receive(void *unknown) {
2-got a new screenshot see up

3-2 meg less

the interaction with the server work nice but i dont know about the chat system
and is it normal then i move very slowly?

Good Sull, go on this way!
I'll improve the chat system in the next realease.
Yes it's normal that you move very slow because the server on my pc is running only for testing purposes. My pc as a slow connection and is already running a web server and a file sharing apllication.

For the moment that's the max I can offer, when I'll have a playable version of the client the things will change or if someone of you has soma spare connection to share...

resorved a error on line 156,71 and 72 from game.cpp

Code: Select all

len = MAKEWORD(data+2, data+3);

Code: Select all

len = MAKEWORD(*(int *)data+2, *(int *)data+3);
and the use of textprintf are deprecrated and beeing replaced by textprintf_ex

Code: Select all

textprintf(buffer, font, 0, 0, makecol(255,255,255), "%i %i %i %i", x, y, map_x, map_y);
if(speech!=NULL)textprintf(buffer, font, 10, makecol(255,255,255), 0, "%s", speech);

Code: Select all

textprintf_ex(buffer, font, 0, 0, makecol(255,255,255), 0, "%i %i %i %i", x, y, map_x, map_y);
if(speech!=NULL)textprintf_ex(buffer, font, 0, 10, makecol(255,255,255), 0, "%s", speech);
and i just started to code on the sound system and searching some sound

Hey Guys,
i read your post on the gentoo forums, Sull, im interested in helping you, if needed. I did some little c++ programming on win32 earlier, now converted to linux but had nothing to do with programming so far. I read your source a little, i think with a little time to get used to it, i could understand it, perhaps it would be good, if you explain it to me, im finding it very hard to read others code. At the moment, i have spare time in the evening (im from germany, dont know where you guys come from), but in about a month or two, theres plenty of time id like to contribute to this project.
I will study your code more detailed and follow the discussion to get an overview, if i can manage the work. Id like to be glad, if i could help you with this project.
My email address is neonlight (at) imap (dot) cc.
