Even the installation instructions are pretty old as they talk of lenny and...

I did that, just was making doubly sure.

The actual command for hg purge is -

Re: Luabind or Lua problem when building Allacrost

ok.... but I got warnings even in lua 5.1.5 . But that probably is because libluabind-dev is now dependant on liblua5.2-dev. So I guess I have to wait for the game to catch up to lua5.2 . luacheck itself gives access to all the errors - ┌─[shirish@debian] - [~] - [10070] └─[$] luacheck -v Luacheck: ...

how to get back to pristine state ?

Once you have done -

Code: Select all

$ autoreconf -i 
and then

Code: Select all

$ ./configure --disable editor 
Is there a way to get back to the pristine state so that the generated files are no longer there and you can pull without thinking that some merge conflict or something may happen.

Seems like a good roadmap. Just saw https://bitbucket.org/allacrost/allacrost/issues/14/linux-build-files-generate-numerous so it's a known issue.

Re: Lynn's Legacy - Now on Linux, and with joystick support!

I have another question -

why did you chose soureforge.net rather than github.com . There is possibility of getting more interest there from developers and other people who might wanna extend your game.

Just my 2 paise.

Re: Luabind or Lua problem when building Allacrost

wish I had found this before filing the bug. @Roots - you really need to fix that configure script so it shouts for these libraries as well or give a shout-out on OGA/freegamedev for somebody to hep make a better configure.ac file. https://bitbucket.org/allacrost/allacrost/src/4012519d2727c8d3ea5f19...

Re: Aren't the dependencies listing a bit old

Yes, the dependencies are old. I know Lua has a 5.2 version, but I think we're still on 5.1 due to our use of the Luabind library, which unfortunately has become an inactive project. More recent versions of many of these libraries should work just fine (except for Lua 5.2 and SDL 2.0, but there's a...

Aren't the dependencies listing a bit old

Hi all,

See http://www.allacrost.org/wiki/index.php ... pendencies . As can be seen the versions they share and the versions I have on my system aren't compatible at all. Then later I see they were of 2012 vintage/era. Would love to know what recent versions work.
