  • 6. Copy the content of the SVN folder to your JA2 game folder and overwrite if asked.


dont just copy, use svn export so you wont get some nutcase svn repo in ur installation folder Smile

well ur harddisk also wont like the mass .svn files in hidden folders, every file that's linked to svn has one so you get double the amount of files and they're all tiny.
space isn't the problem, i just dont like the mess they create..

Well I went through it as you explained and got the same error message again...got another one the first time I tried to run the JA2 exe but I didn't understand it.

I guess I will try and roll back the whole system and see what happens just for giggles.

I leave on Tuesday for the rest of the week for work out of town so I really don't have time to sit around and try to find a work around for this.

I have tried all of the single click installers and I can't get a good download from them...it gets to the end and then the server hangs up and the download times out. I should have NEVER screwed around with the installation that I had working and running smooth with the weapons mod. Now I can't even find that weapons mod to make it work right again.

I followed the instructions to the letter, but running JA2.exe gets a "Number of tilesets in code does not match data file" error message. What's the cause of this problem?

The SVN instructions in the first post.

Edit: I notice the SVN didn't seem to update the JA2.exe file, though; I assume this is a glitch?

Those instructions may be out of date given they are from 4 years ago. You are probably best off using one of the one-click installers.

The instructions are fine, nothing really changed on the system side. But, there's currently no exe in the SVN directory, it has been removed for the duration of the closed beta test. So best to just get Tais' latest SCI (rev4057).

edit: Nevermind --- getting the game data from the first post instead of RoWa's link worked.

[i]
I had Tai's SCI (with UC), but since I got a lot of bugs on my self-compiled .EXE, I thought I'd try with a normal version of 1.13.

So I have

1) A working version of JA2 Gold 1.12 (build 04.12.01)
2) Downloaded the latest SVN from (https://81.169.133.124/source/ja2/branches/Wanne/JA2%201.13%20MP) as suggested by RoWa here. which is a relatively small download (30 MB ish?)
*not* the link from the same post in this thread "https://81.169.133.124/source/ja2_v1.13_data/GameDir) -- which is apparently a 300 mb download.
3) Copied the SVN's gamedir to JA2 Gold's folder, overwriting anything.
4) Compiled the Build using VS2010. Created Ja2_EN_Debug.EXe. Copied that to the JA2 folder

JA2_EN_DEBUG.EXE wont start because binkw32.dll, fmod.dll are missing.
5) Copy the DLLs from Tai's SCI JA2 folder.

Ja2_EN_DEBUG.EXE wont start with the following error: "Initializing Virtual File System Failed"
www.lamaisondujardinier.com/files/virtualsystemfailed.png

Any idea?
Cheers!

Also -- any idea why the "add an image to the post button" is broken? [/i]

During the closed beta test, isn't it best to display the information that there is no JA2.exe coming with the SVN repository in the first post (by Marlboro Man)?

I actually think this should be announced in large and colourful letters so unaware players (like me, for instance u_U) don't get confused until they find that information. Needless to say that it should be removed when the executable is available again.

Let me rephrase that.

Those instructions may be out of date given they are from 4 years ago.
The first post has to get updated. I suppose any moderator can do that? Or does Marlboro Man hold the rights?

May I suggest that you either shut down anonymous SVN access during the final beta stage, or put the exe back in the repository? I just wasted quite some time before I realized that the build is useless without access to the latest exe.

While i can understand not wanting to release a non-perfect EXE, we, who would very much like to try the new additions, wouldnt mind too much if the EXE wasnt perfect.

But do you have an estimate on when you will release the EXE on SVN or otherwise again?

I just started modding again (AI changes mostly) and noticed that everything is fine up to revision 3753. Updating to 4064 causes a number of issues, most notably around VFS and project file changes. In case it matters I'm using VS2005 Express. Are there any extra steps for these later builds that previous ones did not require?

I have the same issue on the VS 2010 express.
The builds revision 4060 or something (some of the last with 3356 build) are ok to compile with some small adjustments) seems fine.
The later builds (revision 4065 up to the head revision) seem to not be functional at all. The whole VFS thing is screwed up, part projects are missing/have to be updated manually ...
seems weird, that this state is saved on the svn for 300 svn revisions?!? how can that be, am I missing something?
I'm very interested in coding for the MP ... just experimenting with stuff ...
any updates on this?
I also downloaded build 4057, but it seems on the svn there's only 3xxx and 4071 available ...!? I am confused!

At about that revision, extra files were added at the beta svn repository. So, in addition to the Beta Code, you need to also grab the files from here

The issue I am running into is not a GameDir related problem as far as I can tell. GameDir is only relevant after I have compiled the exe. The problem I am running into is that compilation no longer succeeds.

Specific compilation fail message? It is quite possible that VS2005 is no longer supported, but doubt that as well. So, post your "Failed" message (not the warning ones, they are a lot but you can ignore them) so we can see if we can help more.
P.S. You could also try updating your VS with the express version, and see if that helps.

Hey, I can confirm blacklists problem. Getting the latest SVN gamesource ... in the trunk directory results in having the project with several VS version project files (I believe 2005 2008 and 2010. So the project files are already there and should be configured properly. Can't anyone tell who's responsible for it, so I can ask directly?
All I know is that downloading it results in a chunk of code you cannot compile right away. I get errors about arbitrary function (abs) which I can resolve, and about missing VFS files. Which I cannot resolve. VFS used to be in the ext directory ... with another structure (subdirectories like "aspect" or "core" ...) now it's is the base directory and many header files have been restructured for some reason. It just seem like someone tried a huge restructuring of the whole thing and just didn't go through with it ...
anyways, you can't compile it in that state. but there are 4057 exes out for download, someone had to be compiling them. so where did they get it from, or what did they do? who can I ask about it?

You should get the latest development source code from here, which should compile out of the box without any changes:
https://81.169.133.124/source/ja2/branches/Wanne/JA2%201.13%20MP

The official source code (which is outdated) here
https://81.169.133.124/source/ja2/trunk/GameSource/ja2_v1.13
gets updated with the one from the development trunk after the 2011 release, which should be in 2-3 days.

The MP branch builds fine for me. The main one builds if I copy its files over the MP branch. I haven't tried playing yet, so there may be other issues. Thanks for pointing me in the MP direction.

Hi all I am using the 1.13 4552 I see the latest version on SVN is 4574.

Should I use SVN then as me and my mates are playing a lot of MP at the moment.

All so does 4574 contain any cool fixes for MP like alowing us to climb onto roofs yet?.

P.S

What would be cool is different floors for buildings but I assume the JA2 engine cant do this....yet?.

Thanks

There is no Guarantee that there will be a bugfix for your problem in SVN,ask RoWa about bug and tell him about it(if he doesnt know this bug) and climbing on a roof is disabled,its not a bug,its disabled because it could make problems i think.

And if there is a Bugfix(es) of MP in SVN then your friend should update game to 4574 too,or else you guys wont be able to play

Hey thanks for the fast reply`s PasHancock.

Would we ever see roof climbing?.

Where can I see a list of changes in the latest SVN version to see if there was any MP stuff added/fixed?.

Sorry for all the noob questions but damn this game is huge in scale and there is so much to learn.

Thanks

Roof climbing feature in MP is developing(i hope) by RoWa or someone else,i hope they didnt forgot about it.

I think there is no list of changes for SVN,we only can see updates when latest version will come out.It would be great if someone could make a thread about fixed bugs with revision.

Yeah I would love that I dont want to sound rude though because i have kinda just come to this forum and dont want to sound like I am demanding I just cant believe what you lot have achieved I have had so much fun with 3 way DM so far that I really want it to develop more and more.

I wanted to get on a roof to snipe but could not Sad.

I wonder if we will all so see multiple level buildings that would be great for sniping Smile.

All so a thread that lists changes to SVN versions would be great.

I seem to be having a fair few crashes to and want to know if there could be a crash log on me PC if so where could I send it as I want to help.

All crash reports are in C:\Jagged Alliance 1.13\MULTIPLAYER\Servers i think

Choose server,find a crash report in it and you can report it to RoWa

If you play with your friend thru your IP then its in "My Server" Folder,if you play thru someones server,it could be in other Server Folder

Hi all I have followed the instructions for the SVN and when I launch the game I still see build 4552 not the latest one.

I only copied files from the GameDir folder not the other folders called

Build
Developer_Docs
etc

I wonder if I need to copy files from the Build folder into my JA2 Dir?.

Thanks

Hey what I did was download the files to a folder on me desktop as per instructions.
I then copyed the files over to the the JA2 game dir as per instructions.

then I did an SVN update and started the game but it still shows at the top left corner version 4552 not the latest 4579.

I did how ever copy my old JA2 game dir and used that but in a different location maybe I should have done a clean install.
