Streak|ON reported several problems running on haiku gcc2hybrid. So, for now, I target only for gcc4 or hybrid
 
 
+32 # RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IItonestone57 2009-11-04 17:37
Thanks for your work Michael.

If you could target for gcc2 that would be even better since Haiku releases gcc2hybrid versions. This way these re-compiled programs would be more compatible for the majority of Haiku users.

Very strange.. here runs in full screen mode. Wich your system gcc2hybrid or gcc4hybrid? do you have downloaded my libsdl new version?
 
 
+15 # RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IIHaikuBot 2009-11-06 10:35
gcc4hybrid and yes I downloaded your libsdl. When I switch game in fullscreen mode (via F4 or config file), It switched but picture still small and around it black sreen. (http://iscr.ru/photo/1257525282_screenshot5.png)
 
 
+12 # RE: RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IIkarl 2009-11-06 10:41
maybe you have to define the full screen resolution in the config?
 
 
+7 # RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IIHaikuBot 2009-11-06 10:51
No. But I try switch via F4 key only, and try define in config only. In both times that's not bring any effect.

Are you talking about the problem with sound coming from gcc4 apps on an Alpha build? It's fixed with #33997, obviously not on an Alpha build, but on all further hybrid-gcc2 builds.
 
 
+7 # RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IIHaikuBot 2009-11-12 04:09
No, sound effects are play, but music not. I ripped it from original CD to OGG as says in readme file. I have gcc4\gcc2 build.

+6 # RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IImichaelvoliveira 2009-11-12 21:28
Do a little test for me

download this game:
www.haikuware.com/directory/view-details/games/classics/smash-battle

run.

See that plays music (sounds will play well).. if not, it's because you don't have libvorbis installed :D!
 
 
+11 # RE: RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IImichaelvoliveira 2009-11-12 23:57
Here.. download this high definition music and convert all to ogg format

http://downloads.khinsider.com/game-soundtracks/album/heroes-of-might-magic-2

later, rename one by one as you can read on readme file

put on the music folder.. and so adjust the configuration file..

I hope that works so well to you as work here..

Don't forget of libvorbis ;)
 
 
+9 # RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IIHaikuBot 2009-11-13 02:28
I already have OGG-files. Yeaaah, now music plays with libvorbis. Thanks. ;)

I off "music = ext" in config, and it not crash anymore for me. But if I switch on this option it will crash, seems something wrong with libvorbis (according debug message)

I could find the regular version game, which is 12 Mb, instead of the full cd version, which is 600 Mb. Is it possible to use this version instead?
http://www.abandonline.com/gameinfo.php?id=53

The maps are in .MAP and .CMP, not in .mp2

When starting fheroes2, there is a black window, and then it exits without any message.

Most games and software today is made for gcc4 or even gcc3. So, understandable you have to change some code to compile on gcc2.

For those wanting to game, they really should switch over to gcc4 system.

Since Haiku releases are gcc2 hybrid officially - good to support them too if you can.

Way better if a solution can be found to get gcc4 games working on gcc2 system without recompiling. Maybe filing a Haiku bug and seeing if a developer can figure out a workaround to get this fixed. The point of hybrid system was to let gcc4 and gcc2 software to work on the OS.

hmm, I wonder if I need to put a 'this software will not work on windows' banner on software listings like these. this software and the ati rage driver, ich ac 97, etc. beat download.com, and driverguide etc in search results, so I guess a lot of windows users just download these apps/drivers.
 
 
-5 # RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IImichaelvoliveira 2010-12-27 22:16
Karl, I don't know why this drivers are always into Top Downloads section.. Haiku don't have anyone? :P
 
 
-6 # RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IItonestone57 2010-12-30 15:05
Keep in mind Karl that there are many Internet users out there young & old who have no idea about Haiku or never heard of it.

A good solution is to change your top banner to give a clearer message to uninformed people. I included a link to Haiku's about so anyone wanting to learn more about Haiku could follow a link.

Top banner message like below,

HAIKUWARE
Software for Haiku Operating System - Not for Windows, Linux or any other OS!!!
http://haiku-os.org/about

Top banner message like below,


That would be exceedingly ugly IMH0!

I did originally have 'Haikuware - Software for the Haiku Operating System', but was contacted by a Haiku director, and he convinced me to rename it to 'Haikuware - Software for Haiku'...

Anyways, I thing that most users search for the above app through Google:

www.google.ca/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=Free+Heroes+of+Might+and+Magic+I#sclient=psy&hl=en&safe=off&source=hp&q=Free+Heroes+of+Might+and+Magic+II&aq=f&aqi=g1g-v4&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&pbx=1&fp=cba0178b09ca64e2

don't read anything, assume all software is for Windows, and just download it...
 
 
-1 # RE: RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IItonestone57 2010-12-30 16:40
Looks OK but I understand that a banner really shouldn't have lots of words. "Haikuware - Software For Haiku Operating System" is more informative and would work well (better than just Haiku) but some Haiku members say it is only called Haiku not Haiku OS or Haiku Operating System. Saying anything other than Haiku seems to bother them or be wrong because the OS name is just Haiku. I think they want Haiku to be similar to how the term Linux is viewed. Most people will just say Linux not Linux OS.

Correct, most users search with Google and Haikuware is likely one of the first results to show so they go download stuff thinking it'll work on Windows. Keep in mind that to them Haiku means poetry if they know the word. So, your banner might be interpreted as saying "software that is like Japanese poetry". ie: elegant software. You should bring the point across that Haiku is another OS. Unless you want lots of Windows users downloading off Haikuware - will cost you data transfer but keep your ranking high in Google.

Ok, the biggest issue is using only the term Haiku is not clear itself. First thing that comes to my mind is poetry. For instance, go to someone, who doesn't know the OS and ask them what they think about Haiku. Guess what. They'll think you're asking them about writing Japanese poetry.

If you tell someone you use Haiku they may ask what poetry you write, etc.

The term Haiku is associated with Japanese poetry. So, choosing it for the name of an OS made it confusing especially by leaving out OS at the end. Haiku OS would have made better sense and removed most confusion.

Go ask someone about Debian. They may say what is that and you'll say Linux. Guess what. They'll hopefully know what Linux is because the word is very unique (means one thing - related to operating system). They either will know the term Linux or not, in which case they'll look it up or ask, and not assume what the meaning is.
 
 
-4 # RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IIkarl 2010-12-30 16:48
I understand you argument, and generally agree - the choice of the name for the operating system was a poor choice (in my view); although it makes sense why it was named what it was, it causes confusion. it should have been something unique, even domain registration would have probably been easier. it's funny that they don't want it to be known as haiku os, when the domain name for the official website is haiku-os...

anyways, regarding your 'you tell someone you use Haiku, they may ask what poetry you write'; i do think every discussion has some context, and the context of the discussion would have been established before that question as computers. you could say the same thing about apple.

the first thing that comes to mind when someone says apple, is the shiny red fruit - computers; that's another story. :lol:
 
 
-5 # RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IItonestone57 2010-12-31 00:09
True, something unique would have been ideal but even Haiku OS would be pretty good. That makes it more informative to people. Look at SkyOS. Just saying Haiku makes things confusing. Do people say I use an Apple or Apple computer? Lots of companies taking common words (or mixing them) and using them for their products. ie: Galaxy Tablet

You're right Karl that context is required first. But look at haikuware as a non-Haiku user and think where is the context on this site that tells people that Haiku represents an OS. Anyone downloading from here may think they are getting elegant software just like Japanese poetry for Windows. People don't understand the meaning of Haiku - as an OS.

Very interesting to see companies use food to represent technology. Aren't Android releases named gingerbread, honeycomb? What about Blackberry, Apple, etc.?
 
 
-5 # RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IIkarl 2010-12-31 08:48
Yes, you're right. Haiku is just too confusing and general. It should just be renamed HaikuOS. I could envision that in the logo for our new design and will consider that; it makes more sense.
 
 
-5 # RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IItonestone57 2010-12-31 18:37
I like it but you will upset Haiku's board or developers by changing the name like that. They will come after you. Maybe give you a hard time like before to change it back to Haiku. Safer to add "Operating System" or "not for Windows" on the banner. Haiku Operating System sounds good to me but I guess they worry people will start calling it Haiku OS & why they had you change it to just Haiku.

I bring this up to keep you out of trouble by not going with HaikuOS.
 
 
-5 # RE: RE: RE: RE: Free Heroes of Might and Magic IIMeanwhile 2010-12-31 10:17
I'm sure that, if designed in the right way, it wouldn't have to look bad.
Also, if you add "not for Windows, Linux or others", you can just leave it at 'Haiku' instead of 'Haiku Operating System'.
