New SVN-Build (w/all engines) [Update: Nightlies available]

Post by cerial » Mon May 18, 2009 9:07 pm

Hi there!

Some of you here may already know me, I've ported the original FreeSCI (0.34) to the PocketPC-Platform some time ago (among other things) :)

Now that CABAL has come true, I wanted to try out ScummVM with SCI on my device and saw that there's no version for windows mobile availabe which supports SCI (yet).

So I went down into my secret mad scientist's lab and compiled the current SVN myself. It seems to work, but still has some issues (AGI does not seem to work in this build; screen rotation does not work for now).

However I think that some issues are caused by another thing:
My build of scummvm uses a different compiler (latest SVN of minw32ce of the cegcc-project) as well as different (newer/newest) libs (SDL 1.2.13 instead of 1.2.6, FLAC 1.2.1, etc.) The screen rotation problem for example is caused by a change in SDL since 1.2.6, screen rotation is handled a bit different here, so I just disabled it in scummvm for now.

I also think that it should be perfectly possible to create a buildbot based on this new build system (if a maintainer is reading this: I can supply you with all patches to the libs and scummvm I made so that everything compiles cleanly with the current mingw32ce w/SDL).

Here's the link for you, I've tested it on Windows Mobile 6.5 (don't ask) and I'm planning to test this build on WM2003 tomorrow:
[removed URL because official nightlies are now available]

Please notice I take no responsibility if this build damages your device, etc. (the usual clause).

I'd be happy to hear some feedback :)

Bye for now,
Cerial

Hi Cerial,

nice work. As for adding WinCE support to the buildbot: Yeah, this is possible, and Kostas is aware of it, but simply is lacking time right now.

Maybe you could help Kostas out a bit with the WinCE support on buildbot in particular and WinCE porting in general. Howabout if contact him and me directly via email (knakos@ and fingolfin@ well add our primary domain name to the end ;).


Bye,
Max

My hope is that you and Kostas set up a buildbot for the PocketPC/WinCE port.

It would make the port much better because testing of new scummVM builds on this platform would then be possible.

Right now it's very much a case of: the cloakroom ticket in the overcoat and the overcoat in the cloakroom, i.e. the developers are not particulary keen on doing bug fixes based on non-dev SVN builds and it's not possible to bug test new SW changes because there are no buildbot/official WinCE/PocketPC SVN builds.

So, pleease help Kostas set up a WinCE/PocketPC buildbot version.

So, I finally found some time to write a complete step by step howto, including all necessary patches, etc.

I'm very sorry that I did not reply earlier, but I really had no spare time (...the usual thing...)

However, AGI still does not seem to work, just like WM2003 based devices seem to crash at the menu. But its a first step. Compilation was tested on Mac OSX Leopard 10.5.7 (PowerPC) and Windows Vista SP2 w/Cygwin. ScummVM itself was tested on a HTC Touch Pro w/WM 6.5

Here you go.

Bye,

Hi Cerial,

I tried your build in my touch hd with winmo 6.5 and the cursor doesn´t work. I cannot activate any menu option and there is no cursor. Morover, when i go out to the menu, the screen is in the foreground (inactive) and it is not possible to operate the phone properly.

Any solution for this?

Cheers,
David

Is not complet!! can you post links for SDL patches!!
What do you mean?
All patches are available at the URL posted above.
(Check the "read more" link, there's a wget with the URL in the script-block under "Compile SDL 1.2.13 trunk (r4600+)" ).

BTW:
I have a Windows Mobile SVN trunk buildbot running since 2 days, with Windows/Cygwin and Mac OSX 10.5.7 PowerPC slaves.

Here's the URL for you to look (nothing to download - yet):
[removed URL because official buildbot now available]

Please note that the buildbot won't be up all day, it's just a POC.

Bye,
Cerial

Splendid! Since I'm not very technical it would be nice to test this out as soon as it's not a POC :) I live in the GMT +1 zone, when will SVN builds be available?

Any thoughts from the devs in this forum? Kostas?

I can't, but the current version of ScummVM should have MPEG support disabled by default, since none of the supported games use it any more.

(EDIT: Added the missing, critical word "disabled".)

Actually it should have MPEG support disabled by default.
