ZGameEditor 3.0.0

Post by VilleK » Mon Feb 11, 2013 10:20 am

Version 3.0.0 is released today!

The main new feature is Android platform support, but there have also many other improvements and changes.

For a detailed list of updates in ZGE since the last version visit the beta-thread for 3.0.0:

viewtopic.php?t=874

Download the new release 3.0.0 from here:

http://www.zgameeditor.org/files/ZGameEditor.zip

Note: The Linux and OSX runtime binaries are not included because I don't have the build environments configured. However they can be built from source using Freepascal. If someone manages to build them successfully then please send the binaries to me for inclusion in the distribution.

Hi VilleK,

Thanks for this new version. It's working fine on my Xubuntu using Wine. There is still this little problem with the right clic to add components, but the sound don't crash anymore :wink:

If that interests you, I tried to compile the sourcecode but it gave me errors with NativeUInt in ZPlatform.pas

Code: Select all

Hi Ats,

NativeInt/NativeUInt types have been added to later versions of Fpc. Could you try upgrading?

Ok, so I downloaded the latest fpc from sourceforge but now I have new errors in ZPlatform_SDL.inc :

Code: Select all

So in ZPlatform_SDL.inc I changed

Code: Select all

function Platform_InitScreen(var Width, Height : integer; UseFullScreen : boolean; Title : PAnsiChar) : integer;
to

Code: Select all

function Platform_InitScreen(var Width, Height : integer; UseFullScreen : boolean; Title : PAnsiChar; ZApp : pointer) : integer;
and the two

Code: Select all

function Platform_ShowOptionDialog : boolean;
by

Code: Select all

function Platform_ShowOptionDialog(App : pointer) : boolean;
It got rid of the first and fifth error, but not of the rest ( Error: Identifier not found "ZApp" ).

Do I have to define something in the compiling command to take advantage of the {$IFDEF LINUX} in the sourcecode?
If so, is it -Tlinux?

Thanks !

Thanks for testing. I've now committed an updated zplatform_sdl.inc. Please use it and try again.

I've updated zplatform_sdl.inc and I installed libgl1-mesa-dev and libsdl1.2-dev for the linking.
It's almost OK...

Here's the compilation log:

It compiles a ZzDC executable file. I moved it to the ZGameEditor folder but it isn't working:

Code: Select all

~/ZGameEditor$ ./ZzDC

Runtime error 216 at $08068EEB
  $08068EEB
  $0804B1A3
  $0805128A
I also tried to add -Tlinux to the compilation line. The result is exactly the same.

There must be a zzdc.dat file for the binary to open in the same path. Create one using "Android: Build zzdc.dat file" in project menu. Try with a empty project first.

Sorry but you lost me... What project menu are you talking about?

I'm compiling directly in the console. Do I have to install an IDE or something? I tried to re-install lazarus (the one who comes with the old fpc 2.4.4) but I didn't managed to find this Android: build command.

Is there a way to build that using the command line in the console?

Hi Ats,

Ville means the project menu in ZGameEditor.

The standalone executable you've compiled is a platform-specific ( Linux in your case, right? ) player that needs a ZGameEditor project binary to run. That's what a zzdc.dat file is. Even though that option is confusingly labeled "Android: Build zzdc.dat file", the created project binary works with all platforms / players.

To enable the "Build Linux x86 binary" function in ZGE, you need to rename the executable to ... can't remember what actually ( Linux_Player.bin or something ).

It's a real shame the MacOS / Linux players aren't packed in releases anymore. But i can understand why .. haven't seen anyone using them ( publicly at least ) in years.

Ooooh...
So it works like a charm and smoother than using Wine. Thanks for your support!

Here is the zipped ZzDC 3.0.0 file for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS i386 ;)

:)

Just checked a old version of ZGE.

Player.bin = Windows player
Player_SS.bin = Windows screensaver player
Player_linux.bin = Linux player
Player_osx86.bin = Mac OS X player
