At first - thank you - i try to to my best.wasp wrote:Congrats on the new release.
But - there will never ever be a compilation of VPA under Java, C or what ever to run under modern OS 32/64bit. At least not by me, or any other remaining member of the VPA team.wasp wrote:But i think you should consider moving it to java or c and do something like ,well, like VPA but without the need of dosbox.
Here I have to admit and say a strictly: NO.wasp wrote:You seem to understand the inner workings and you know programming for sure.
Well, time may be a problem. And knowledge. But: Some others are far more enhanced to the planets project, like PCC2 or Web-PCC, or hate to say this: NU.wasp wrote:With Javafx or opengl and other technologies, shouldn't be hard, if you have the time that is.
This has been suggested a billion times, but the answer always has been the same: No.wasp wrote:But i think you should consider moving it to java or c and do something like ,well, like VPA but without the need of dosbox.
With Javafx or opengl and other technologies, shouldn't be hard, if you have the time that is.
As far as I have tried you can only compile the sources with Borland Pascal V7.0 (maybe the french fork V7.1 would do it, too).wasp wrote:Do you know if i can use netbeans to compile the source? I've never used mingw and netbeans is what i use at work, so i'm more familiar with.
I don't know -- in particular because I don't have a feeling what Netbeans actually is (does it come bundled with a C++ compiler?). For example, Visual Studio is an IDE like Netbeans, but it DOES come with a compiler, librarian, and make utility.wasp wrote:Ok, I understand it.

Netbeans is primarily an IDE for Java, and the Java Development Kit includes a free compiler. So it's not unreasonable that Oracle, the company who owns Java, ships an IDE with a Java compiler.wasp wrote:Wow. That goes beyond my knowledge. Netbeans is an IDE and it has a compiler and it also builds executables. not sure about the C++ version though.
Same thing: start by getting a compiler that can be driven by MakefilesBTW, how can i use the phost PDK? is it only for phost?
I'm not sure where you turned wrong, but the file "INSTALL" (a text file) should describe in detail what you need to have, and what you have to do (be careful to skip the chapters that don't apply to your compiler).wasp wrote:First it needs a compiler. I've tried mingw but there were problems because it couldn't find an exe. And several files were not installed. Then i tried cygwin and that problem went away. Then it started complaining that couldn't find the include cstlib . I0ve managed to solve that. Then it wanted perl as well. I've installed it. Then it started complaining about a mak file could not be found, started to run some configure and then failed when loading the SDL lib and the others. I couldn't find where i had to define the libs folder. Finally i've started to look into the code, but it seemed to confusing which is logical since i never programmed in C++.
