Cleaning Up Code
Posted: 5:54:00 PM 0 comments
I took some time today to update some libraries in my source code, which is affecting a bunch of my projects. Cent, which runs off of CrystalSpace, is getting a makeover of sorts, as I am switching it over from the traditional CrystalSpace build process of linked libs and using DLLs instead. The process is quite nontrivial, as I am finding that I have to modify the Visual Studio solutions a bit to get things working as I need them to.

The biggest issue I'm coming across is trying to get the plugins into the same directory as Cent.exe so that I don't have to carry around a CSPath environment variable. I thought just adding it as a reference would copy it over, but it's not. I'm sure I can resolve this, but I just ran out of time today.

The other fun makeover I'll need to do involves Constellation, my Planarity clone. It runs off SDL, which, along with a slew of other libraries, are in a bunch of directories outside of my SVN directory. I'm going to try to get those all together and get a functional build of both Cent and Constellation before I continue working on any of the code in there.

Once I'm done, it's back to Six Minutes. I have a LOT of cool stuff planned over there, and a lot of coding to do to get it done. With some extra spare time the last week or so, I'm trying to knock out things that I've been wanting to do for a while but just haven't had the chance. We'll see how far this goes.

Last week, I finally got a hold of my own MSDN Subscription (no, you can't have any software). So far I've setup Successor on Windows 2008 as the new domain controller and my primary computer, Ox, is running Windows 7. There were a few install woes with my Windows 7 that were resolved after disconnecting all other drives, but once I got past that it was pretty easy.

Soon Understudy will be on Windows 2008 as well, but there is going to have to be a lot of planning going into that. Understudy is my web server, SQL server, SVN server and mail forwarder, among other things. I plan on moving SQL to Successor, replacing 602 Lan Suite with something to forward my mail to GMail, and redoing the web server as IIS 7.

Then I start playing with the development tools. Expression Studio 3 is something I want to dive into and see what I can do with, and of course Visual Studio 2010 is around the corner, with the beta already out. There's a lot of fun stuff for me to play with, should keep me fairly occupied for a while.
