Re: Birth of the Empires space TBS game (open source)

Auto-turn feature is already implemented (though I never used it myself): http://birth-of-the-empires.de/wiki/index.php/Bedienung_und_Steuerung_des_Spiels#Command_line_options (command line option like "Bote.exe --autoturn=500" for example) helping with changing resolution is maybe somethi...

Re: Birth of the Empires space TBS game (open source)

The UI is a bit improvable as far as clicking through windows to get things done is concerned, that's right. The UI of the Android version would be a little better as some people say. Turn ends should not be slow, that is a new thing/bug I'd say. How long does a turn take? Does it get worse when get...

Re: Birth of the Empires space TBS game (open source)

Hi, well like with many games once you get a little acquainted with deeper gameplay and all the controls you get earlier action. Here it is the same. In a usual PC Version game, I start to have enemy contact in turn 50-60 and first larger combats in turn 90-100. In order to get people quicker to thi...

Re: Birth of the Empires space TBS game (open source)

Not sure if people are still interested but we released a newer version of the game in the meantime, which can be downloaded here: http://www.heise.de/download/birth-of-the-empires.html . Despite the download page being german the game is in english. We lack an english download mirror site after the...

Re: Birth of the Empires space TBS game (open source)

as someone on our german boards pointed out, using winetricks ( http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks ) and installing native gdiplus libraries in console (sh winetricks gdiplus) solves GUI issues with the galaxy map. We haven't tried it out ourselves but if someone wants to do it on his mac or linux di...

Re: Birth of the Empires space TBS game (open source)

that would be too easy wouldn't it ;). I use to download my stuff from a german computer magazine website called chip.de, they even got a english subsection, so you might find it there: http://download.chip.eu/en/WINE-for-Darwin-and-Mac-OS-X-0.9.1_153815.html seems like there is no regular macosx po...

Re: Birth of the Empires space TBS game (open source)

sure, no one requires you to do that ;). There is a strange bug in the GDI+ implementation of our galaxy map that we cannot get hold of. Before, when the galaxy map ran on simpler GDI (Alpha 4 and earlier), it worked perfectly under WINE and screenshots were like those we made from Windows OS. Still...

Re: Birth of the Empires space TBS game (open source)

Several ways are possible (see previous posts here in this thread; download link is the same as in my previous post above with the new screenshots): 1. Windows on Dual-Boot 2. WINE (run it with its own virtual desktop, otherwise at least under Linux/Ubuntu10 there are some graphical glitches) 3. VMW...

Re: Birth of the Empires space TBS game (open source)

sure, no need for you to pay money for anything like this ;). yes, the Windows Dual Boot obviously should work as long as the Mac doesn't feature exotic hardware but I assume when it's running intel processors, it should be quite standard. I actually could look the hardware specs of their computers ...

Re: Birth of the Empires space TBS game (open source)

;) interesting, seems like the upper right "main" window contains a bug maybe. It doesn't occur in windows though but funnily enough in Windows - on a few machines - it happens that all the other windows (the sidebar and the lower area of the screen) sometimes do not load at all and stay b...

Re: Birth of the Empires space TBS game (open source)

Seems to be a bug with MacPorts: http://trac.macports.org/ticket/23683 Here an older thread from 2006 where the problem was also arising: http://kenno.wordpress.com/2006/04/20/compiling-libpng-for-mac-os-x/ There should be a way to fix this, possibly with this Darwine if there's a difference, I don'...
