First of all, there have been some people donating minerals to me, while i do apreciate the gesture i dont realy know what to do with them .. ok i could buy me a shiny glowing name or something .. uh whatever ;P
anyways, i'm doing this for fun not for the mon.. erhm minerals
so .. if anyone of the people sending me mins wants them back, just let me know.

now to the important part:

scmd mac development didnt go as fast as i expected, mainly due to lack of time. my RL changed and my free time went from having multiple hours every day to having only (a bit) time on weekends. cause of this situation i'm not giving any new ETA for the mac alpha, please be patient.

also to keep you updated on my progress i'll try to post a new screenshot at least once every two weeks.

here goes nr one
user posted image

to sum up the state that mac scmd is in right now:

the full engine (that is all non gui / windows related code) is ported except for the save code (and maybe other things that i forgot).
the mpq code is ported but not yet fully tested on mac.
the map is displayed correctly but editing isn't implemented yet.
work on the various settings dialogs has begun.
support for having multiple maps opened at once is about 80% done.
the unit terrain etc. tree is not yet implemented
minimap code is ported, but the minimap window is not shown for several reasons currently.
the drawing code is rather slow when compared to the pc version. this will be improved once the basic editing functionality is implemented (that means after the first alpha)

for suggestions please visit the scmdraft 2 beta site, (SI will enable the mac suggestion list tomorrow or so) http://scmdraft.stormcoast-fortress.net/?a...list=SCMDmacsug . note that you will need to have an scmdraft beta site account to access that list.

well .. if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Wow, this looks awesome. I've never had my hands on this editor, and i never was sure what it was like. And i was hoping it wasnt TOO advanced. But this just looks perfect. Wow, i really can't wait until this comes out. Good job so far, and good luck on the rest.

You guys, keep sending minerals!! I think he likes it. The original 18 that I gave went to a good cause, and yours is too. If he gets himself a glowy name with the mins, I'll send all you guys free boxes.

Well, I have two things to say.
I would like to be a tester for the mac version.
and,
I need you to send me an activation code for your site. I'm technically logged into it, but I need the activation code sent to my email, which hasn't happened yet for some reason.

Hey DW, is there any new word on SCMD2ME? Things have been pretty quiet, and I really don't want this project to die out like the rest.....
Report, edit, etc...Posted by SI on 2005-07-11 at 22:05:11
As far as I am aware, DW will start his summer break this week and have more time, also I know he has been working on it somewhat. I wont go into specifics because I dont know how much he wants to keep secret for now.

1 question, will there be an egg-beater plugin for SCMDM? I really don't wanna use the utensil dry.gif tongue.gif

[center]I have a question; Will plug-ins be a different format from the PC version?[/center]
Report, edit, etc...Posted by ShadowBrood on 2005-07-14 at 03:32:19
It will probably be the same because I can create a file format that only the program reads and as long as you are running that program, it is universal. I'll check what the current extension is.

Extension is SDP. So probably it will remain the same.

So has anything changed since July?
I'm sad because my PC is too slow to download the new patch. It takes over three and a half hours to get about 3/4 the way done. So basically I'm Mac based now.
Report, edit, etc...Posted by SI on 2005-09-25 at 11:15:45
I have an ETA from DW for the first version, however because it isn't sure, I dont want to announce it only to have something come up or some bug delay it and have people complain.
