I'll try my hand at it since I have Fallout 2 somewhere around here. Anyway, I'm getting the required libs now.

That would be really appreciated Malarkey :-)

Feel free to visit our irc channel if you encounter problems compiling. There are often FIFE devs around who can surely help you:

Anyone tried to compile it yet? Do you need help, anything we can do?

Good news: two courageous Mac coders have successfully compiled FIFE on their Macintosh system yesterday. There are still some issues but it looks like won't take ages anymore till you see a FIFE Mac release.

Let's hope we get the stuff fixed soon :-)

Oh good. I've been having problems trying to get the libraries it needed to build (in addition to trying to find time to even play with them).

After months of struggling, here it is: the first official FIFE macintosh release.

Should work for for all PPC Macs with Mac OS X:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/fife/...2?download+

README inside the tar.bz2 package; please report problems here.

Can't you just setup a PPC box that has a cron job to checkout the source and build it? Why does a person need to be involved?

I can understand when it comes to programming, but for BUILDS!?? Just automate it.

How can we setup a cronjob to automatically build the source if we were not able to fully build it manually yet? We succesfully compiled it but our mac gurus don't know how to create a package so you can distribute the binary with all needed libraries.

We plan to have the next official FIFE release in about two weeks. It seems it will be win32 & linux only as there is still nobody around who can help us creating mac packages :-(

Just wanted to announce that our first public release for 2007 is out :-) Have fun with it:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/fife/FI..._win32.exe

This is for the mac users who also own a win32 system. Unfortunately we didn't find a mac coder who was able to build universal mac packages yet :-(

Install guide:
1. Download
2. Execute the self-extracting 7zip archive and uncompress to a folder of your choice
3. Read the readme.txt that can be found within the folder where you uncompressed FIFE

And here are two screenshots from the new version:

We intend to release the src package in the next days as documentation still needs to be written.

If you want to have a look at the code earlier, simply download it from SVN. Engine repository r821 & content repository r85 were used to build the 2007.0 release:

Finally available for download :-)
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/fife/FI...rc.tar.bz2

If anybody could try to create working binary packages for Mac the team would be _very_ happy.

The old src package was broken as I packaged it on win32 and that screwed the line breaks :-(

An updated and fixed packaged was just released by us :-)

Grab it here:

A C++ one would prolly work better but let me know if you run into issues with the compile process :-)
