Uh? Why? openMSX is still alive ... (maintained) for witch reason they need my help? i'm missing something? they would port openMSX on another platform? In that case i'm not the correct people, as i only have knowledge of pc platform...

Manuel? ????? can you clarify me?

I'm sure of it Wink
And I think it was the remark about being a win32 dev that triggered his post.
We are still looking for a win32 dev to join our team, so any volunteers are always welcome.

umh, now i begin to understand... the openmsx team lacks a people that could maintain the winzozz version? or i'm wrong? in that case i cannot assure nothing but i try to download the latest sources of openMSX to take a look and a decision.
Only a question: what kind of compiler do you use for the build process? ( do not tell me a C/C++ compiler. of course! )

Now i need to go to bed, but tomorow i will download the sources...

PingPong: indeed, we're still looking for a Win32 maintainer!

It's not hard to compile openMSX on WIndows on itself, but we also need exactly someone like you to follow up on Win32 specific problems. It seems you missed this entire topic!

Anyway, to get started check this out: http://openmsx.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/*checkout*/openmsx/openmsx/trunk/doc/manual/compile.html

What you missed:
http://www.msx.org/Uncertain-future-for-openMSXs-Windows-version.newspost4402.html
http://www.msx.org/forumtopic7746p15.html from Oct 22 post onwards, e.g.

We need you!

Best thing to do if you're interested: join us on IRC, which works best to do collaborative multi-site development.

@manuel: strange, i've missed the two post, but after reading that i figure out the type of people you are looking for.
But a question:
Say for example that on a specific release of openmsx there are a grand total of 100 issues (or bugs). How many are windows related?

That's hard to say, but usually, very few are. The code is mostly identical for all systems and we use (almost) the same compiler.

But, there can be specific issues, also regarding packaging. For Windows we have scripts that use NSIS to build an installer e.g. And we need someone who regularly compiles on Windows to see if things keep working.

There are a few small parts that are Windows specific (because there was no portability library for it). If those need to be changed, it's good to have a Win32 developer in our team.

Hi, Manuel. Unfortunately my ADSL works very badly today, i get a drop of the connection on every 30 secs on average. Crazy
however i've successfully installed MSYS / MinGW and ran the configure.
On step 2.2 Libraries there is a list of dependencies : libxml2 and so on... i need some help and i need some info in where to install those libraries (the location). Because this is OT can you send me at S P A M B I N "DOT" TISCALINET "DOT" IT?

Thx, in advance

You don't need to install the libraries when using the staticbindist method. We'll solve the problems on IRC.
