Can powermame be updated with standard .diff files?
« on: May 12, 2006, 03:24:32 pm »
I'm a complete compiling newb. I've just learned to compile a standard MAME build and thought I'd have a shot at PowerMAME but I'm having some difficulty.

Can powermame be updated with standard .diff files?
Assuming it can I'll explain the issue I ran into and maybe someone will be able to let me know what I did wrong.

I applied the diff files (0105u1 - 0105u5) but wasn't able to compile afterwards. the u1 update gave me an error:
Hunk 2 failed at 86
Then a few lines later,
patching file src/windows/input.c
Reversed <ore previously applied> patch detected! assume -R [n]

Apply anyway? [n]

I accepted the default n at both of these prompts

the next 4 applied without any errors other than saying something about an offset of 2 lines.

When I began the compile I ran into this error:

src/powermame/speech.c: In function `load_control_names':
src/powermame/speech.c:222: error: structure has no member named `clone_of'
src/powermame/speech.c:223: error: structure has no member named `clone_of'
src/powermame/speech.c:224: error: structure has no member named `clone_of'
src/powermame/speech.c:226: error: structure has no member named `clone_of'
mingw32-make: *** [obj/PowerMAME/powermame/speech.o] Error 1


Any insight is appreciated.

No, it cannot be updated with .diff files.  You might get lucky with files that don't have conflicts but any file with conflicts will not work.

That's the answer I was looking for.

So PowerMAME will be limited to the major version changes and not worry about the updates.
I never concerned myself with the updates before, but since I decided I wanted to learn how to compile my own I thought that was a good place to start.

Thanks for all of your effort on this project.
