UFOAI 2.6 builds on 10.9 but has issues
« on: November 06, 2014, 12:51:27 am »
First, I would like taking the opportunity to thank all developers for the great work on providing UFOAI to us. Currently, I would like to contribute for the 2.6_dev version after having enjoyed 2.4_stable during Mac OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x with the binaries found.

I was able to compile the current 2.6_dev on 10.9.5 and to make a dmg file which installs nicely.

However, the game shows a bug and crashes each time when selecting the "Firebird D" ship:
  • in the main menu of the base
  • from the "Stileto" view in ships menu
  • while buying from the market menu

The "Stileto" and all other menu areas for a campaign in the main base seem to be functional.

(1) Which data should I provide to you for improving the source code?

(2) Besides the successful build of a DMG there seems to be some potential to improve the compiling.

With MacPorts 2.3.2 and UFOAI 2.6_dev you can successfully build a DMG with the following dependencies:
sudo port install libsdl-framework libsdl_mixer-framework libsdl_ttf-framework \
 jpeg libpng XviD libtheora gtk2 gtkglext gtksourceview2 git p7zip python27 \
 doxygen libsdl2 libsdl2_mixer libsdl2_ttf openal-soft

My current environment used for compiling is:
  • OS X 10.9.5 with Security Update 2014-005
  • XCode Version 6.1 (6A1052d) and latest Xcode Command Line Tools
  • MacPorts 2.3.2

However, the configuration phase did not find all headers of installed ports:
  • Could not find xvid.h -- although port XviD @1.3.3_0 was installed.
  • Could not find bfd.h -- the (forced) installment of binutils did not help in finding the header and the port binutils shows some trouble to other ports anyway.
  • Could not find link.h -- although port dtrace @118.1_0 was installed (but may be wrong port anyway).
  • Could not find jpeglib.h -- although port jpeg @9a_1  was installed.
  • Could not find CUnit/Basic.h -- although port cunit @2.1-2_1  was installed.

I am unsure on the below headers:
  • Could not find mxml.h -- but unsure if port would be available.
  • Could not find picomodel.h -- and no port available.
  • Could not find AL/al.h -- there should be a port openal but this port did not install due to failures of its own.

Please find below the comprised output of all compile phases. Furthermore, there were tons of warnings which included but were not limited to quite a bunch of warning: 'register' storage class specifier is deprecated [-Wdeprecated-register] statements.

make: *** [copybinaries-uforadiant] Error 1

Further remarks:
  • The phase make macinstaller seems to repeat the upgrade of all maps although the phase make lang models maps-sync made an upgrade before.
  • The port pango @1.36.8_0+x11 was installed independent from UFOAI and I am unsure why this message comes after the creation of the DMG anyway.
  • The final error message may result from the missing administration rights of the user account used for compiling.

Most important:
The DMG-file ufoai-2.6-dev-macosx-universal.dmg installs nicely and runs on OS X 10.9 besides both the issues mentioned above and the final error message in the compiling before.
