Description Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-19 14:13:54 UTC
This is my pre-emptive version bump request for America's Army... I follow the game development, so there's no need for anyone else to post when 2.4 gets released for Linux...
Comment 1 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-19 08:55:05 UTC
I guess this'll be 2.5.0 instead... heh
Comment 2 Anonymous 2005-10-20 01:56:25 UTC
The originial porter died a few months ago IIRC, so I don't think this will get
ported fast/soon, because nobody finished the 2.4 port either.
Comment 3 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-20 06:30:08 UTC
Huh?  The person that ports the game is Ryan Gordon.

 2.5.0 is probably going to stay in beta through the weekend. Hopefully there
  will be a Linux and Mac OS X client release next week. We were aiming for
  a simultanous release, but it just didn't work out that way. Soon."

As stated in my original message, I follow the game development.
Comment 4 Anonymous 2005-10-21 00:22:51 UTC
Sorry, confused him with somebody else. Does anybody know why they didn't
release the 2.4 linux client then?
Comment 5 John5788 2005-10-21 06:57:01 UTC
Probably too many bugs.
Comment 6 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-21 11:36:46 UTC
The Army has the final say on whether the client gets released.  There were a
couple bugs that prevented it from being released.  At any rate, expect to see a
great new 2.5.0 ebuild and port, at least according to Ryan.  ;]

Created attachment 71675 [details]
Ebuild for americas-army 2.5.0

All I did was rename the ebuild and mark it ~x86 ~amd64. I'm testing it now in
my portage overlay (slow download)...
Comment 8 Nathan Adams 2005-10-29 10:27:01 UTC
Created attachment 71682 [details]'s emerge info

The client portion of the ebuild WORKSFORME on x86 (see attached emerge info).
I have not tested the server portion, nor do I have a 2.3.x server installation
to compare against.
Comment 9 Nathan Adams 2005-10-29 10:30:22 UTC
The Punkbuster updater is not executable by default:

# ls -l /opt/americas-army/System/pb/pbweb.x86
-rw-r-----  1 root games 152836 Oct 29 13:13 /opt/americas-army/System/pb/pbweb.x86
Comment 10 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-30 10:11:26 UTC

Anyway, I've added an ebuild to CVS... enjoy...
Comment 11 Olivier Calle 2005-11-01 10:45:16 UTC
The punkbuster file (/opt/americas-army/System/pb/pbweb.x86) is not getting
executable because of character transposition in the ebuild:
fperms ug+x ${dir}/System/bp/pbweb.x86
                          ^^ should be pb
Comment 12 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-01 10:54:29 UTC
Comment 13 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-01 10:56:07 UTC
Anyway, I changed it in the ebuild...
Comment 14 Nathan Adams 2005-11-03 06:14:34 UTC
Open a new bug for a simple character transposition... right...
