Re: JavaScript for moddding

Is there any chance of adding JavaScript as a language used for modding? Programming with Lua is pain. It even doesn't recognize != operator. It blows my mind. I hate Lua. Lua is a bullet that missed it's aim. They wanted simple pretty language but created a freaking brain-eating monster instead. I...

Re: What is the easiest way to install on a Mac?

I'm working on a make-based "make_mac.sh" that I will push to mdoege/mtmake-osx soon I hope. Without interference from xcodebuild, it should be easier to stick e.g. "-march=core2" in the CMakeLists somewhere and get a build that works on your machine. (Because with Xcode I could not figure out how ...

Re: What is the easiest way to install on a Mac?

I've made some progress: Now I can build a 64 bit binary with make instead of xcodebuild. It turns out the crashiness of optimized Release builds was due to these compiler flags: "-ffast-math -Wall -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -funroll-loops". Remove them and the problems are gone. I just have to tes...

Re: What is the easiest way to install on a Mac?

The easiest way is to install wine (=a windows software interpreter for mac) and run the windiws version. Everything works (including online features) and the framerate is very good. Hope to be useful, if you want i can publsh a standalone mac binary built with wine and windows binaries. Bye Would ...

Re: Mob Showcasing

If you're good at blender: I'm still looking for a goat to roam the Minetest world. There are sheep everywhere - take a mob mod, it got sheep as wool providers - but goats would be far happier creatures than sheep in that blocky Minetest world with its height differences. Plus goats rely less on he...

Well, getting ancient, uncommented, hard-to-understand source code to run is certainly something I have experience with. Although in science it's usually Fortran-77 or worse, Fortran-iV. :-) What science? I'm guessing physics or chemistry based on those languages. I'm doing bioinformatic stuff wher...

Re: Morn76's Minetest OS X Mavericks builds

The latest realease wouldn't work until I did

Code: Select all

brew install hiredis
but then everything worked fine! Played with shaders, filtering, waving trees, everything and still FPS never went below 20.

Re: What is the easiest way to install on a Mac?

Maybe you should clone mtmake-osx instead of downloading the ZIP, so you can simply do "git pull" before you build. Nested git repositories seem to work, you just have to be more mindful of which directory you are in before you 'git pull'. Have to learn more git, as of now I'm only able to clone yo...

You're amazingly fast Morn76! How much coding experience do you have? I think this is more about Googling skills than amazing coding ability. :-) The fixes are all out there somewhere . That said, I've not really had significant prior experience with cmake or Xcode and I've never really used C++ fo...

Re: What is the easiest way to install on a Mac?

P.S. OmniStudent, please make sure your copy of mtname-osx is updated before you create a new ZIP for GitHub though, because builds are supposed to include freetype and leveldb now. Thankyou, but it will probably be a while until I contribute a zip. Right now I'm just having too much fun trying to ...

Re: What is the easiest way to install on a Mac?

So it looks like leveldb and freetype work without problems; gettext might work if include and library paths were changed because Homebrew does not install this in /usr/local, so as not to clash with OS X's built-in BSD gettext. LuaJIT on the other hand is a complete disappointment on OS X and lead...

Re: What is the easiest way to install on a Mac?

Looks good, this will attract mac owners. You're right off course most people will just get the binary, but it might be helpful for people like me, who wants to learn programming by changing stuff in a program they already like. One thing, the line "does not change libraries (so an old minetest.app ...

Re: What is the easiest way to install on a Mac?

That's amazing work Morn76. This is the first time in years there's been a distributable version of MT for osx. The instructions are probably a bit hard to follow for beginners, but that's easy to fix. Since I couldn't contribute much to this using my Smarts, I'll volunteer some of the knowledge I'v...

Re: What is the easiest way to install on a Mac?

I blame myself.
If I had thought about and written down everything I've "pasted into terminal and then forgot" I would be 90% mac-savvy by now. Instead I just do the minimum to get what I want.

Also hoping that grey will come along and verify your build, but I'm almost certain it will work.

Re: What is the easiest way to install on a Mac?

Mesa has libx11 in its dependencies though:

https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extr ... esa-libgl/

Doesn't irrlicht handle the 3d stuff, and x11 (or cocoa) handle the display on the screen?

Even though X11 doens't start, maybe other programs depends on its libraries?

Re: What is the easiest way to install on a Mac?

Yes, I have XQuartz installed, should have mentioned that.

I'm not very good at this stuff, have learned most of it by googling around my own minetest bot project,
but is it possible that Irrlicht is dependent on X11?

It would be nice if someone else than me verified that your compile works, but I'm hoping some admin will post your file there soon.
