i just found this http://artengine.ca/gridflow/download/carmen/ on the gridflow website. It seems to be a windows version of gridflow, is someone have succeed to work with this?
Gridflow windows version ???
I am wondering if that dll is not a joke.
In fact that is not a joke:
Some instructions for making it running good:
<carmen> patco: ive compiled it twice on 2 difft machines with 2 diff versions of ruby and 2 diff versions of mingw/GCC
<carmen> patco: works fine, mostly. a few patches have a tendency to lock up the SDL window ithik it was due to the cpu usage and shitty windows scheduler
<carmen> patco: any fixes (mostly related to the STACK_BASE) should be commtied to CVS
<carmen> patco: im pretty sure ive run it with 1.8 and 1.9... you could try downloading the dependent ruby dll's but who knows what version i compiled against, better to compile fresh if youre serious about running gf on windows..
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:35:07] <patco> Oh, I was sure that a ruby dll was necessary... I will post all your instructions into the forum to be sure that I've not ommited anything, thanks.
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:35:32] <carmen> yep
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:35:34] <carmen> the dll isnt enough
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:35:37] <carmen> you really need the whole thing
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:35:45] <carmen> ruby dirs, libs, .rb files, gridflow.so, etc
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:35:54] <carmen> and libjpeg etc
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:36:02] <carmen> its best to just install minGW and then compile
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:36:17] <carmen> otherwise you will likely never recreate the exact combination of working files
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:36:33] <patco> Oh even gridflow.so?! I think I'd rather use mingw, yeah
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:37:29] <carmen> yah
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:37:32] <carmen> i had a rar up a few times
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:37:37] <carmen> i think chikun tried it and it didnt work
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:38:06] <carmen> the preferred OS for gridflow is linux, or anything with nice X windows support
[ven jan 20 2006] [07:38:17] <carmen> anything that supports sdl and ruby and GCC should work though
