Compiling Anet

Postby WT_Lexi » Tue Oct 17, 2006 3:01 pm

Jeezuz,

i just tried compiling the ANET Server on my Debian Box and thats all i got.

---cut
../../../dp/dpprivy.c: In function `writeSwap':
../../../dp/dpprivy.c:117: warning: use of cast expressions as lvalues is deprecated
../../../dp/dpprivy.c: In function `readSwap':
../../../dp/dpprivy.c:122: warning: use of cast expressions as lvalues is deprecated
make[1]: *** [dpprivy.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/dep/src/linux/dp/normal'
+ die
+ echo 'Build failed; ./build'
Build failed; ./build
+ exit 1
make: *** [all] Error 1
---cut

I guess Dan used a few commands in his Makefile who are out of date and have been removed in actual GCC Versions. I emailed him the problem and hope he gets the time to respond.

Maybe we can get that "I wanna Host behind a Router" issue overworked aswell. The Server operates at a Standard UDP Port but communicates on random Ports with the Clients. Maybe i can read out something. Together with the patched .dll Files it would be possible to fix that issue.

We?ll see if his Kegelhighness answers my mail. I hope so.

And zzzapp. I got an answer from Dan:

---cut
The bad functions will compile with gcc-2.95.3, maybe you can install that.

Otherwise the fix is to change

(unsigned char *)*bp += size;

to

(*(unsigned char **)bp) += size;

i.e. just move the star left :-)

Let me know if this helps.
- Dan
---cut

Will do that and then report back ;-)

I'd recommend joining the Anet yahoo group. It's basically a forum except all the posts are emails to the members. Speaking of which, I am willing to pay a programmer to fix the DLL files and possibly rewrite the source for Anet so that it can be hosted from a more modern OS. I'm going to see if I can get a thread going in the yahoo group to see if anyone is interested.
The link to join is here:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/anet-server/ "or send a message to anet-server-subscribe@yahoogroups.com to join."

Which you probably already know is posted here:

In my typical 'late to the game' fashion and oblivious nature, I'm putting together a puzzle that's telling me the last server that was available for all flavors of I'76 has been updated beyond being able to support us. Is this true? Do we have nowhere to play online?

BZ911.COM...

The server works but it dosen't suppor "original" I'76, just Nitro Pack and I'82...and the BZ'ers aren't super friendly...

Kind of like us...

Okay...I've just seen some hints that there's no more online play available. People compiling for their own servers, references to 'the end finally coming', so forth.

Anything happening tonight? I'm itching to get blown the hell up, since that's all I was ever good for.

..and instead of posting out of context, let me put something up in the 'General' forum and stop hijacking a dormant thread.
