Thread: Allegro.pas

  1. #51
    This is going too slow, but now all examples compile using Delphi, but some of them doesn't work.

    I didn't manage to make all examples run with Delphi but anyway, I've released it. Maybe somebody with more Delphi knowledge can help.

    You can read the announcement here.

    From now, I'll try to fix the Delphi stuff that doesn't work, add stuff that is still unsupported from Allegro and complete the documentation adding more examples too.

    Hi!
    I tried to compile examples in Delphi bit every time when application tries to start I get "The program can't start because libwinpthread-1.dll is missing from your computer"
    What is this library part of? Or where can I get it safely?

    It is part of the MinGW-w64 project. Read this thread for more information and tell me if it fixes the problem.

    I hadn't that problem because I compiled Allegro by myself. May be I should add the DLL by myself as I did with branch 4.

    That would not be a bad idea. I bet many people might be dissuaded from using of your library if they need to go and search for the required dependencies all around the web.

    I went and downloaded the latest version of MinGW project but it seems that it might only include 64 bit version of the "libwinpthread-1.dll" which of course doesn't work with 32 bit applications. And Delphi being Delphi it doesn't give me an option to add 64 bit windows platform to the project.

    Ok. Before that I should add the option to use monolith version of the Allegro DLL files, as well as to link "libwinpthread-1" statically (if possible).

    Can't you change the project target to 64bit? Lazarus allows to do it in the project configuration dialog.

    Projects are 32bit because it is the only target allowed by Starter Edition version.

    Few days ago I finished to revise the allegro5.pas unit. It was a loooooong work, checking everything and updating the documentation. As a result, documentation is complete for that unit, and I've fixed some mistakes, changed a few stuff (data types, parameters...) and added a few new procedures and functions.

    I've also spend some time trying to update the website, but was not able to change the background color (sigh!). I think I'll create a new one, but not yet. A month ago I created a new project to help build websites for SourceForge projects named sfwebsite. It's still in a very early stage but once finished it will help a lot.

    So, I'll not upload a new version soon, as there's work to do:
    • Finish to port JAVAroids as new demonstration game, and also make some more changes to Furious Paladin.
    • Revise all add-ons, documentation and updates, and add the new al5video unit.
    • Revise all examples, adding some new ones. (I'm also planning to write a GUI to replace nihgui).
    • Test everithing with Delphi (not sure, but I think I should install the latest Community Edition one, shouldn't I?).

    But I'm in the way...
