  1. Related: https://www.zdnet.com/article/github-starts-blocking-developers-in-countries-facing-us-trade-sanctions/ However it's not GitHub itself to blame here, but US government. IIRC we ourselves have a team member from Iran.
  2. We already tried PNG lossless compression years ago. See this commit: https://trac.wildfiregames.com/changeset/16386 Notably the cursors went from 4+KB to 1+KB. Ideally it should be done before committing the PNGs to the SVN. If you rather recompress the PNGs already committed, the SVN bloats (including the checkout) because it still keeps the older PNGs (because SVN needs to let you access older revisions) as well the new ones. A better way to improve on game size (also reflecting in the final game download, not only on the source which has PNG but not S3TC textures) is to recompress the audio files, using a proper, updated ogg codec and sensible compression value. For some more info see this:
  3. Not sure if it's the same issue, but sometimes the "building construction animation" is not played: https://trac.wildfiregames.com/ticket/3009
  4. I like both Ponies Ascendant and Hyrule Conquest. Not that I played them a lot, but they are the most original, especially the latter, bringing some interesting diversity from vanilla 0 A.D.. Hyrule, especially, has a character choosing at the game start and many original units and graphics effects, not seen anywhere else.
  5. There are already some mods or total conversion, see for example this: https://www.moddb.com/mods/hyrule-conquest Some features may currently be missing, but if an interesting mod emerge they may be added, as already done in the past. But someone should be committed in investing months of work designing models, animations, scripts and so on. As an alternative, partially free (Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial license), RTS ,WW2 game you can have a look at Spring 1944: http://spring1944.net/ .
  6. Selling code or art should be possible, STK does just that (as well as Red Hat and other commercial free software companies): https://supertuxkart.net/Donate But indeed it is not needed until we have money available and no plan to use it.
  7. Looking great! BTW, you should be able to get rid of copyright issues if you change the specific names, while keeping a similar look and feel.
  8. @itrelles Hi, I removed two your posts, they didn't look very useful as first posts...
  9. You may want to do some graphs before/after the patches. See here for how to use the profiling feature: https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/EngineProfiling#Simulationreplaymode Also make sure the MD5 hash of final state is the same, if the changes are not supposed to introduce different paths.
  10. The patch has a lot of whitespace changes, so it is not readable... The buildlog seems fine to me. I suppose jpeg support is not needed within wx (was also removed from the game itself), correct? Then it could also be disabled with --with-libjpeg=no .
  11. CPPFLAGS="-L$LIB_PNG´╗┐_DIR/include That -L should be -I
  12. Without changing cppflags it may includes different headers than the ones of the library and problems may arise...
  13. I would first move building libpng (around L376) before wxwidgets (L335). Then replace --with-png=builtin wxwidgets compile option with --with-libpng=sys . It probably will fail because it will search in standard system location. Then try to change the wxwidgets CPPFLAGS from CPPFLAGS="-stdlib=libc++ ... to something like CPPFLAGS="-Irelative/path/to/just/compiled/libpng/headers -stdlib=libc++ ... and LDFLAGS from LDFLAGS="$LDFLAGS" to LDFLAGS="-Lrelative/path/to/just/compiled/libpng/lib $LDFLAGS" . EDIT: it should be similar to what done on sdl2 with iconv (L293).
  14. BTW the forum software itself is not open source either...
