Linux / 2.5-dev RPM packages for Fedora available
« on: December 04, 2013, 01:44:00 am »
Hi. I created RPM packages for a development 2.5 version of UFO:AI for Fedora to make it easier to test it on Fedora. They can be downloaded from SourceForge:

The installation instruction is in a README file.

The SPEC files are available from GitHub:

The packages are heavily based on the RPM packages from RPM Fusion created by Karel Volny and Nicolas Chauvet and my changes will hopefully be backported into the RPM Fusion repository when 2.5-final is released.

Comments and suggestions are welcome and can be posted in this thread.


Discussion / Unable to build more than one radar and SAM site
« on: November 28, 2013, 05:48:58 pm »
Hi. Having my primary base I built one SAM site and one radar. Later I wanted to build an another radar to cover additional area, but in a "Create installation" menu I have only a base as an option.

Is there a limit of SAM/radar installation I can build having only one base (I wasn't able to find it in the documentation)? Current 2.5-dev version.


Discussion / keyboard shortcuts for fire modes
« on: November 23, 2013, 11:25:08 pm »
Hi. Is it possible to set keyboard shortcut(s) which would allow me to show a fire mode list and/or select directly one of them (without using a mouse)?

I have seen in the code command like: hud_executeaction, hud_listfiremodes, hud_listactions, but they seem to be an internal command with some callbacks needed.


Hi. In current 2.5-dev I am unable to display a popup with key info. F1 from keys.cfg doesn't work and there is the error 'Window "popup_keyinfo" not found' in a console after try to execute a "ui_push popup_keyinfo"  command. Was it intentionally removed from 2.5?


Coding / Question about a roadmap for 2.5 branch (packaging for Fedora)
« on: November 20, 2013, 12:54:49 am »

The branch 2.5 looks quite stable (lloing at the commit rate) and I wonder is it a good time to start a preparation for making some packaging for Fedora (to make it easier to test UFO:AI in this environment)? Are they planned any big changes before the release which could provide an additional work?

Two more questions:
1. Have you introduced any changes in a build system (since 2.4) which could surprise me?
2. How can ufoai-data.tar (or at least its content) can be generated from the source forlder from Git?


Linux / Issue with dual monitor configuration
« on: November 16, 2013, 01:20:36 am »
Hi. I have small issue with UFOAI on my laptop with external monitor. When started in full screen mode game can:
 - span across two monitors (using virtual resolution of both screens)
 - be displayed on both screens in a mirror mode in the resolution of the smaller screen (after exit the game X resolution remains lower and has to restore manually)

Both cases doesn't look good. There is a workaround with temporarily disabling the second screen before the game, but maybe there is possible to configure UFOAI to use just one screen in requested resolution (in a full screen mode)?

My system configuration:
Intel graphic card using i915 driver and presented as "Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller"
Fedora 19
Gnome 3
