  1. Having it installed as a system wide application makes more sense to me. It also makes more sense only displaying info or errors that need compulsory attendance of a human. Everything else is better automated or prevented all together. That said most of my software design ideas come from The Unix Philosophy, in case you are curious.
  2. I have created an software that can install The Dark Mod in any Linux system wide. https://gitlab.com/es20490446e/darkmod-linux
  3. Streaming now at: https://www.twitch.tv/alberto_salvia_novella
  4. If you are playing some Dark Mod campaign, you can let other people join you by streaming it. If that's the case mention so here in the very moment you are starting the stream, indicating which campaign you are playing.
  5. I made an improved PKGBUILD. If you wanted a pull request, just let me know.
  6. I mean that if you create a Pacman package using the Debian unstable package as binary source, running the binary leads to `WXU_3.0.5' not found. Even when the Debian package is compiled using libwxgtk3.0-dev 3.0.4, that's the weird part.
  7. @OrbWeaverYeah, that's what I guessed. Thanks for the clarification. The part that calls my attention, though, is that version 3.0.5 doesn't even exist on Debian unstable. So likely the Debian package 3.0.4 is providing 3.0.5 by mistake.
  8. @greeboWell, I guess that assuming that dependent libraries will match different distros is just too optimistic. Thanks for your assistance, and have a nice day.
  9. @greeboAny idea on why it fails to build when using the Debian package as source, just for my own info?
  10. Hahaha! Guess that, even then, I never used the candle. Cause I felt more secure by not being seen myself. So being afraid of darkness was the only way to make people like me uncomfortable while playing.
  11. I still suspect it could be a good idea, and better known after tried out.
  12. Yeap, the lighting should never be completely dark. I remember playing a scenario which was impossible till you increased gamma to the maximum. That should be prevented by design. Amnesia got it right. It lights a subtle blue light after a few moments of complete darkness.
  13. Not working on Linux: Required WXU 3.0.5 is the incomplete release, so not offered by distros
  14. Root cause is: wxgtk also tags incomplete releases, so the latest isn't offered to install.
  15. So I'm packaging darkradiant as a pacman package. But when I execute darkradiant on the terminal it complains: The thing is that's the latest announced 3.0 version of wxgtk. If you install 3.1 then darkradiant complains it cannot find 3.0 at all. Any idea why this could be? Thanks in advance.
  16. You don't need to use GitHub/GitLab's bug tracker, wiki or continuous integration tools. My proposal was using those platforms only for code storage, for easing merge requests. While breaking the different programs into different projects under the same account, for speeding up cloning repositories. Nothing else.
  17. @Jetrell Nah, I'm not gone. It's simply I realized that doing as in the peter_spy's thread, replying to every single point to justify my view, is pointless. Either people listen or not. And in this particular topic I didn't took it personally at all, it seems that most of the annoyance comes from previous discussions where I didn't participate. Or that the people was expecting me to procreate the conversation infinitely like with in peter_spy's thread, which basically I believe it was a mistake on my side. In summary: I said nothing else because nothing relevant had to be said ??
  18. @Springheel Cause it was never well designed to start with, having to commit to a single central repository. People used it only because it was the sole thing available at the time. As everything is committed to a single central place: Anything can break the main code, so micro-managing commits is needed. Code conflicts can easily happen. You have to clone every related software for minor changes. So people delay commits, making them bigger, harder to inspect, and more prone to errors. And developers distrust outsiders by default, so these don't even try.
