Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

Honestly I am getting really tired of delayed progress due to poor decisions and constant separation that the community is doing. I've been sucking it up for too long to the point that i just had enough. I understand you. However, I am thinking about what can help. Getting angry with the entire pro...

I think it might be possible to build even the newest MT for windows xp, but it gets tricky. You need to use custom builds and outdated versions of some libraries.
Oh, that is nice! This is interesting :)

I highly doubt that c55 would consider hiring somebody to do that with pay.
Me too. Especially since there is no one to manage such thing, there is no patron, no cool website with idea description and so on.

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

So if anyone else is still unhappy and not pleased about Minetest depending on Irrlicht. then write your own game engine like what oilboi is doing and form your own community. This is the most childish what can be said. That means: Mommy if you don't like my sandals and no socks while I am standing...

Re: minetest windows xp

From what I know - but I might be wrong - some time ago the minetest code was modified according to modern C ++ standards and this excluded newer versions of minetest from being used with historical MS Windows versions. Even if you download and install a very old minetest version, no modern game or ...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

Instead of thinking about a fork, you could think about a paid audit. Hire someone who will review each line of the code, analyzing the code according to the guidelines made for that purpose. I think the patreon service could be helpful here, if preparation of the code to replace the irrlight with s...

Re: Is it legal to sell Minetest as is?

As there is no official (and stable) communication channel, the Minetest team has no way of formally responding to something like this, for examnple by publishing an official statement with warning against the possible source of viruses, trojans and scams at pointed app store ;(

Why are all folders "padlocked"? When there are more than one users ond single Windows computer, we can install any application for "all users" or just for single one selected user only. In a similar way, we can grant read and write permissions to files and folders. (The permissions and padlocks ca...

Strangelly, this also seems to work... Do you mean that you can run minetest without problems from other than desktop locations? I'm finding it odd that this behavior started all of sudden, though... All apps I used to drop on desktop used to work just fine prior to... Whatever caused this problem....
