manage stars on a multi-platform network

Post by David LE GO » Thu, 02 Oct 1997 04:00:00



Hi,

Is there a simple way to manage a set of stars and galaxys between
two users, one on sunos and the other one on solaris2.5?

a user from solaris, for exemple, can load a galaxy from the sunos
user's disk then he need to compile each stars to run it. How
can they run the same galaxy in the same time?

Can a star have a "sunos .o" and a "solaris2.5 .o"? (and then the
linker use the right one)

Thanks a lot for your help.

Locally, we use obj.$PTARCH trees to keep the different .o files
separated in the release.  You could probably do something similar
with mk/userstars.mk and the stars you are loading in.

Another alternative would be to build your stars into your binaries,
and avoid loading them at run time.

When Ptolemy wants to load a star, it will look for the corresponding .o
file. You could try modifying pigilib/pigiLoader so that it used the
value of PTARCH too, but there could be other things that would need
to be changed.

I once hacked up a makefile that would create *-sol2.5.o files and -sun4.o
files, but it was a real hack, and not very extensible.

1. Multi-platform Game Ratings

I have noticed many people who complain about X-Box
getting lower ratings on Gamespot (for example Tony Hawk
3)  even though it is clear that the Xbox Version is
better. Dont take this as an insult, take it as a
compliment. Games are rated according to the power of the
System they are on. Therfore, if Xbox gets a low rating,
it would probobly be a very high rating on any other
system. For example, Look at Azuruk or any other Xbox game
that did not get a very high rating; if this game had come
out for the PSone, dont you think this game would have
gotten a perfect score? Or if we put the best PSone game
on the Xbox, wouldnt it get a very bad score? So dont be
insulted by the ratings, be flattered that they know your
system is better.
