ufo2map.exe problems
« on: May 07, 2012, 10:13:07 pm »
Hi, people. I have an old problem: the ufo2map.exe file included with the 2.4 and 2.5 versions flatly refuses to work with my computer. The 2.3 version worked perfectly, but it's not available for download anymore. Can somebody include their ufo2map.exe file? Screenshot included

I attached the one I use, compressed with 7zip. It works fine for me on WinXP. Thanks to muton.

Just out of curiosity, how did you get a working UFORadiant?

For me, current 2.5 compiles fine, but for some reason it operates quietly. Some recent change should have brought it, since it worked normally for me just a few months ago.

Mattn gave some advice about this in the bugreport.

OP does not compile from source I think. He uses the one coming with the Windows installer for 2.4 or 2.5-dev, which is completely broken (bugreport).

The one I use was build by mutons tool and is working fine.

i don't think it's broken - it just puts its stdout into a file, not onto the console. the file is called stdout.txt

The one coming with the windows installer of 2.4 is broken, as is the uforadiant there. Did not try the one from the nightly build of 2.5-dev. I would not place a bet on this one for sure.

The one in current master gives an output to some text file? I need a third screen then.

And what is the point of this? If someone wants to redirect the console output to the file, '>' exists for exactly that purpose. If not -- why deprive user of the proper console output? That's mad.

the point is that SDL is doing this.

it depends on whether you use SDL_main or main on windows (afair).

By the way, may I know what version of Radiant are you all using?

Everybody here is compiling from source. So its bleeding heart edge 1.6  :)

If you have problems to get an actual version of UFORadiant, the only way I know is Mutons tool. Last time I checked it was building a working UFORadiant. The ufo2map I use is also from this. If you donĀ“t want to compile yourself, it is a very good and easy way to be up-to-date.
There is a also this somewhat outdated, but working Windows installer.

don't tell me that the new version is broken, too: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ufoai/files/UFO_AI%202.x/2.4/uforadiant-1.6.0-win32.exe

if it's broken, please let me know.

Made a quick check and had no problems with this one. Thats really good news.  ;D

It did again overwrite my beloved ancient UFORadiant 1.5 in the UFOAI-2.3.1 folder without asking.  >:(
