Meet the Newbie !
« on: August 13, 2009, 05:38:11 am »


Hi Guys,

I played the game, loved it and want to give something back.

Im a professional C++ programmer willing to help but im not sure where to start.
Do you have some issues for me to look at ?

Keep in mind that i cannot do it full time.   ;D


Cheers !

Hi Tachop.

You'd prefer to get certain task (or bug) assigned by someone from the devs - do I understand you correctly?
Do you have local repo copy already?

Perfectly, the idea is to help where the team needs it.

Local SVN   - Checked
CodeBlocks - Checked
Compiled    - Checked (Radiant build is broken in Windows?)
SourceForce account - Checked

I think im ready ...   :)

Hi and welcome.

We are glad about every new hand we can get. If you are a C++ coder help on our mapeditor is highly welcome. It's C++ - the game itself is C.

As you have noticed already, current UFORadiant isn't compiling on windows. I'm merging currently a lot of stuff from another radiant version named darkradiant. (see here).

Imo the worst thing in the open source world is always the editor for your game. I would like to provide an editor for contributors to create high quality game content. To reach this goal a lot of work on the radiant codebase is needed. If we want to get new mappers and so on we have to improve the tools and make them easier (and even more important - make them more stable).

Especially about radiant, we have a todo list dedicated to it in our wiki. feature request, bugs and improvements. if you have more questions please ask and we will try to answer them. keep in mind that currently everybody who is working on radiant  is trying to get into the codebase ;)

We would be very glad to welcome you on the list of coders.

Hi Tachop !

First off, a big welcome from my side, too. Sounds like you liked the invitation ;)

The biggest problem with radiant atm is that it runs for some Window$ users (Rudolfo(XP) & Mattn(?)) while it does NOT run for others (BTAxis(XP & 7) & me(Vista)).

We had a discussion about that in our mailinglist http://lists.killfile.pl/pipermail/ufoai/2009-August/001255.html, but it seems we have run out of ideas :(

You said it compiles for you. Does it also *run* on your system ?

Ok ...
Saw that one before but also found this comment ...


/* Under Windows, we do not define OpenGL 1.2 & 1.3 functionality, since
   it is treated as extensions (defined in glext.h) */
#if !defined(__WIN32__)


Thats why i was asking ... ;D

@Tachop:
Stupid question:
Do you happen to know if there is something like __WIN64__ ??

@geever:
I assume you're on linux, right ?
And you do NOT get that error, right ?

There is, but is not related to that other missing define if thats your question.
