I think I've got all of the pre-open source stuff stripped out now. I'll probably go ahead and set up the new repo on github as private initially, then let Mark have a look at it and try the build procedures. If that goes well I can make it public.

I installed on the Master Server ok, but tried a client and while it contacted the server it failed at the end with a "The Master Server connection validation failed"

Any idea? I used the IP address of the MS in the setup steps perhaps the computer name?

Just an update, I had to reboot all my machines to get this to stick but no issues since.

Mark or Dean, what build tools will we need installed on our "build" system to modify and build CQC? Thanks.


RE: 5.5 Beta Discussions Thread - Dean Roddey - 12-24-2020

That's documented on the Github repository pages. So far only the CIDLib layer is up there since I've not posted the CQC code. You have to build our CIDLib system first since CQC is built on top of that. Then you build CQC, which needs a good bit less setup since it's getting most everything from the CIDLib system.

The primary thing you'll need is Visual Studio 2019. There's a free community edition. Make sure to enable the C++ compiler when installing it since CIDLib/CQC are C++ based.

Beyond that, you'll need a number of standard Windows SDKs, which are listed in the repository Wiki pages.

Got it. Thanks.


RE: 5.5 Beta Discussions Thread - Dean Roddey - 12-25-2020

The repository is created. I just now have to convince myself to press that 'make public' button. I won't be able to add the build instructions until after it's public since the Wiki thingy isn't available on free repos unless the are public.


RE: 5.5 Beta Discussions Thread - LesAuber - 12-25-2020

Are you planning a 5.5 release prior to going public?


RE: 5.5 Beta Discussions Thread - Dean Roddey - 12-26-2020

No, the 914 beta will be the last licensed version. 915/916 we don't speak of. 917 will be the first post-licensed version. And then we'll move forward from there and I guess the next release will be 6.0, the first open source one. But until there are some actual changes relative to 917 it's not worth doing.

I just made the repo public:

https://github.com/DeanRoddey/CQC

There is just basic build instructions so far.


RE: 5.5 Beta Discussions Thread - bryanb - 12-29-2020

Dean, it looks like replied in the wrong thread last night. I did run some more tests this morning and it appears that a SetURL is never being sent. I sent you an email with more info. Thanks.


RE: 5.5 Beta Discussions Thread - kblagron - 12-29-2020

Bryan,

I had a similar problem back in April with SetURL. Link is here -> https://www.charmedquark.com/vb_forums/showthread.php?tid=11101

I ended up editing the commands and got it working. Not sure if this is similar to yours, but might be something to check.
