Help to compile attract-mode in windows 10 64bits
« on: June 03, 2018, 04:09:53 AM »
I have followed these steps of compile.md without error messages:

Install MSYS2 https://msys2.github.io/

In the MSYS2 console:

Code: [Select]

pacman --needed -Sy bash pacman pacman-mirrors msys2-runtime

pacman -S git mingw-w64-x86_64-toolchain msys/make mingw64/mingw-w64-x86_64-sfml mingw64/mingw-w64-x86_64-ffmpeg mingw64/mingw-w64-x86_64-libarchive

git clone https://github.com/mickelson/attract attract

cd attract


And when I run make, it gives me these errors (my system is Spanish):

Code: [Select]
$ make
/bin/sh: pkg-config: no se encontró la orden
/bin/sh: pkg-config: no se encontró la orden
/bin/sh: pkg-config: no se encontró la orden
make: pkg-config: No se encontró el programa
make: pkg-config: No se encontró el programa
flags: -Wl,--subsystem,windows -O2 -DNDEBUG -Iextlibs/miniz -Iextlibs/audio/include -D__STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS  -Iextlibs/expat -Iextlibs/squirrel/include -Iextlibs/sqrat/include -Iextlibs/gameswf
mkdir -p obj
Compiling obj/fe_base.o...
make: g++: No se encontró el programa
make: *** [Makefile:457: obj/fe_base.o] Error 127

TRANS:

no se encontró la orden --> the order was not found

No se encontró el programa --> The program was not found

I need help, please.

Compiling AttractMode on Windows requires the use of many .dll files once complete. Because of this I don't think many people do it. The recommend method is to cross compile using Linux since it a cleaner build that doesn't require outside dependencies.

https://github.com/mickelson/attract/blob/v2.3.0/Compile.md

I know this doesn't answer your question but can explain the lack of response. I think I've seen currently compiled Windows versions of AttractMode on Discord which might be a better option if you can't compile in Linux.

Two weeks ago I asked myself, is it possible to compile AM natively using the Visual Studio compiler ( not just by using VS IDE as a wrapper for make from msys) so I opened the project and started squishing those tons of errors. I gave up after 3 days.
It’s way over my single head, but what If I posted it on github so anyone can contribute? Maybe it’s doable?

So... any step by step "for dummies" on linux?
I mean I´ve tried cross-compile too but set an mxe enviroment is not like "sudo apt-get install..."

What Mickelson could do - or another person who knows, can and wants to do it - is to make a "nightly" version and upload it to the server. That has not had any version for a long time.

More than anything because having the "per_playlist" option is very important. And to know when the next version of attract-mode will be available...

Sorry for my very bad english.  :-[

I don't think it could be done easily, i also spent couple days in attempt to compile "natively" with only one result a massive headache and i gave up at the end

I haven't compiled on Windows for over a year. I don't remember it being that difficult. I do remember that you had to deal with dozens of .dll files which I didn't like. You had two choices, copy all of the .dll files to the AttractMode directory or set a "path" in the OS to point to all of the .dll files.

Are you guys taking these .dll files into account? A Windows compiled build will not work without them.

I’m pretty sure you are refering to building with mingw. I’m talking about native VS compiler.

Yes, that's correct but it's what is mentioned in the original post.

Well, that's embarrassing , I indeed forgot what the first post was about :)
