Midway through his daily exploration, Platdude came across a Bird Bath.
Who puts a bird bath in the middle of the forest?

I probably shouldn't, yet, but I feel that things are at a decent enough point that I can make a start on things.

I still have oodles of things to add to the Engine, like proper load/save functions, and doing online URL requests for the online leaderboards.
And, of course, I've still not got the new engine running on iOS, yet. That definitely needs doing!

Time to start work on my Framework anew,
With Menus and Scoreboards and more.
I know what will work, and the things not to do,
As I've done this a few times, before.

Another day, another blue-screen.
Platdude's dug out his tools, and is going to sort it out, once and for all.

OK, a fair number of tweaks in the past few hours (and a nice big nap, too!)
I'm now running Ubuntu32Bit, and have recompiled the Benchmark test with (hopefully!) all the important libraries Statically Linked, thus apparently making for a more compatible ".exe"

You can grab the Benchmark Test here.

If it runs, let me know.
More importantly, if it doesn't, let me know!
Thanks, again, for any and all testing.

Seems the crash in the Linux code was happening when it tried to stream a .wav file, so I had to rejig a whole bunch of stuff to get it working again.
After all of that rejigging, the Benchmark test now runs 100% on Linux, which is nice.

If you'd like to give the benchmark test a try, You can Download the test here as a .tar.gz.

The test has been compiled using GLFW3 and OpenAL, under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, with the g++ command, because that's all I could currently get it working with!!

You'll no doubt have to set permissions and other gubbins to get the thing to run, but if you're a Linux user, you're probably already an expert at managing that kind of stuff. (I'm certainly not!!)

If you do try it, be sure to let me know if it runs, at all!!!
And if it does run, let me know the results from the debug.txt once it's finished.

Thanks for testing!

The Benchmark thing from the other day starts running well on the Linux setup, but seems to crash after about 2 minutes..

After the struggle of getting Linux installed,
Compiling my code went quite well.
Though it looks to be fine, it still crashes a lot.
I hope that a fix won't be hell.

Platdude's enjoying his relaxing weekend.
A lovely strong brew, some toast, and a cumfy chair.

I'd say that's a fairly successful event!

It's still not 100%, mind. If you try to double click it, it tries to open it as if it's an Archive, then fails. Not sure what that's about.
Linux is crazy!!

But, hey, that's working, and it has audio too!
That's a good day's work.

I was supposed to be working on the iOS edition, today, but the MacMini's "Shared Desktop" was being crappy and I couldn't be bothered to sit in front of a desk!!

Tomorrow, perhaps.

ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!

This might not look very successful, but the fact that I've managed to get Linux to actually boot, AND attempt to compile the code...
That's definitely an improvement from yesterday!

I have an awful lot of faffing about to do, in order to get things to actually compile, but I'm fairly confident that it'll be doable.
Things are looking up!!

I finally got around to shifting the framework over to the Mac, last night.
Hitting the compile button swiftly planted around about 1,000,000,000 red "WARNING:ERROR!" flags all over the code.

Everything's broken on iOS.
It feels like I'm starting again.
But a lot of the bugs should be fixable.
So shouldn't be much of a strain.

Some days, Platdude's life is full of fun and adventure.
Today, not so much.

Most folk seem to be giving me successful results with yesterday's benchmark test program.
If you haven't already, Do so here!

Testing is fun,
Except when it fails.
Now I must dig,
through the tester's details.

Platdude's lost on his way to the Zoo, but thankfully this friendly face is here to help.

If you can, please give this benchmarker a run.

It's a simple little tool.
Unzip it, run the .exe, and watch as three "Bloke" sprites circle around for a little while.
Don't touch anything. The benchmark tool will do it all for you.
Running through a bunch of sprite-pushing tests, blending methods, and audio streaming, too.
It'll also flip to fullscreen to check there, too, so be warned if you're watching any other media on your PC at the time!!!

Once it's done (about a minute and a half) it'll leave a debug.txt file, which you should send my way.
Thanks for testing!

I've been working on basic String functions, since last night.
Left, Right, Mid, Trim, SplitTxt and other generic "Basic-like" functions that I'm going to be relying on because I'm rubbish at doing C-strings.

I drew a summer Pixelart,
But it's not that warm, today.
Freezing in my many layers,
The Winter's here to stay.
