 MASTERWORK DWARF FORTRESS - For Lin (v 1.9.2)  » posted by SilentThunderStorm on Sep 28, 2012, 01:33:15 pm
Wonderful!

Thank you for supporting Linux. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

I had, in the past, used the LAZY NEWB PACK when it was built for linux, so I don't know anything about the new races, classes, gem weapons, etc. etc. etc... but it looks like I am about to find out.

I have been trying to run Dwarf Fortress in VirtualBox since Linux support was dropped for the old pack, and given that FPS is CORRECTLY LISTED as the worst fortress killer, this is a godsend.

Zenerbufen... my dwarves will execute elves in your name, and build a fortress purely out of unicorn soap.

Anything else that I may do to encourage continued linux support, please let me know.


#################################################################################################

After playing around with this for a few hours, and reading all the included materials, I do have a question....

How do I reach settings?

The images show a graphical launcher, a la LZ NEWB, but I cannot find any way to launch this at all... instead, the only executables shown in the folder are dwarf-fortress/df which launches Dwarf Fortress, and dwarf-fortress/libs/Dwarf_Fortress which asks if I wish to launch in fullscreen, and then fails with the error, "Not found: data/art/curses_640x300.png".

I had assumed that the GUI launcher was the second one, but not only does the requested file not exist (which would be solved by dragging and dropping), but the requested directory tree does not exist.

I tried supplanting this file into the dwarf-fortress folder (which DOES contain the required tree to the requested file), but then neither it nor the df launcher worked at all. I ended up dropping a soft link to the dwarf-fortress/data folder, and now both work fine, but both only launch Dwarf Fortress itself... this time without asking me if I wanted full screen.

I am assuming that either the linux support is only partial, in which case I may simply have to do without the settings and utilities.... or I must be missing something entirely.

Any clues?

If you could download the windows version (1.9.5) and port it to Linux, that would be great ;)

I assume it is just adding the raws, but I cant test it on my WIN machine, and I dont want to upload something that might not work. So, if you want to help, go ahead :) And good luck with the mod.

Actually, my skills do not really qualify me for that... but I can look into it.

Most of my real experience is in creating web applications.

Really, after hacking through the documentation that you included... it might be far more useful for me to try and beat the html documentation into shape... so far, it is just a set of individual pages with no organization, and no obvious starting place... with several pages that don't even have the old forward and back arrows to keep moving.

Might be a bit easier for someone starting with your mod if they had a single start page, with a decent navigation section, at least... perhaps search. It took me a bit to figure out what some of the stuff they were trying to pawn off to me at embark was.

#############################################

Will certainly check into the raws, though, if you like... will grab the windows version here in a few.

Will start by diff'ing them from the raws from vanilla Dwarf Fortress, and from Dwarf Fortress' official linux version... that ought to give me a decent start.

Will have to wait until Monday... busy weekend.

#############################################

Oh, and, sidenote... you actually can test it on Windows by installing VirtualBox from Oracle first (https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads)... when you start a new virtual machine, it will use an .iso file to install an OS on it.

Still willing to do any work you see need for, but jest letting you know that it is doable.
