Revision as of 11:55, 21 April 2008

Due to a conflict with the previous domain name owner, we have moved to a new URL. We are now permanently located at http://dcemulation.org/. Please update your bookmarks. See this announcement for more information.

The site is currently under renovation. We have moved to a private-wiki-based system and we all are working hard to present you a renovated DCEmulation. The majority of the pages here still has to be written and the content of the old site from years ago has to be transfered to our new wiki.

Please bear with us here.

In the mean time, you may go to the DCEmulation forums and find lots of information and help there. The site has been based on the forums for years, anyway.

Segagaga translation project update: needs translation help

Posted by Darc 13:07, 20 April 2008 (CDT)

Omar Cornut of SMS Power! and MEKA fame has posted an update on DCEmu UK regarding some progress on the Segagaga translation.

Based on James Howell's request of tools/programmers for the Segagaga translation, I've gathered a teams of guys who are working on this.

http://forums.insertcredit.com/viewtopic.php?t=10100

James' has been not helpful so far (busy etc) and we need actual translated data to progress, right now the guys will likely be halted. In the past weeks they made toolset to extract all game text, inject it back (in separate file or in executable), stored as Ascii to save memory, code modified to manipulate and convert Ascii text, code modified to scale font size as requested by James, etc.

Does anybody knows the original programmer on this project?

Can anybody provide translation data so we can evaluate memory consumption of english data?

Anybody interested in doing work on this would be welcome.

lxdream WIP - Fun with OS X 10.5 + GLX

Posted by Maturion 09:54, 21 April 2008 (CDT)

The good news is that I now have regular access to a mac again, and it’s actually fairly up-to-date (ie it’s running 10.5). So as a result, I have to say I’m stunned that other people have managed to get as far as they did - as far as I can see, Apple seems to have broken GLX pretty thoroughly[0] .

So I’ve done 3 things:

  • Fixed the crashes at least, with glx, and generally fixed up the configure script for 10.5. I’ve probably broken it for 10.4 though. Which raises the question - is anyone actually trying to use lxdream on 10.4?
  • Added support for the native GTK port w/ NSGL. This actually works fairly nicely. Unfortunately the only binary I can find for GTK/Quartz is provided by macports, and the font support is broken at the moment (ie completely missing). If anyone actually manages to build it from source… do let me know
  • Started implementing a (fairly minimal) native cocoa UI. Well I was always going to do this eventually, I just hadn’t been planning to do it _now_.

In unrelated news, pulseaudio support is now in, along with spanish and italian translations (thanks to segnini75 and ghost22)

[0] So far I’ve noticed: It’s restricted to 16-bit depth buffers, has various other regressions from 10.4, creating a context with fbconfig crashes the app, glSecondaryColorPointerEXT fails if given a size = 4 (and lead to a crash), not to mention the libGL link cycle issue…
