porting to os x ?

  • Anonymous - 2014-08-21

    Hi, thanks for your edgar game. I played a little bit with it and it seems to be a good game. That the source code is under GPL is perfect so everyone can take a look at the code and learn new stuff from it.
    Have you ever thought to port this game to OS X ? BTW. why i don't see any packages for *BSD and redhat based distros ?
    JFYI, for the porting and packaging i can for sure help and get involve in this project.

    I don't have access to a Mac, so that's why there are no OS X builds. I did used to have RPM builds, but I think they only got 1 download so I simply stopped uploading them. I can always add them back.

    The game is available in the official Mageia repos and I think it's also available in Redhat repos as well. I have contacted the Debian team to include it, but I haven't received a response so far.

    If you're able to supply an OS X build, I will quite happily add it here.

    Dear Richard-san,

    I built the latest version 1.19 on OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
    I posted some screenshots on my twitter timeline:
    How can I provide the app package porting the legend of Edgar to Mac OS X?

    Best regards,

    Hi Munehiro,

    Is there anywhere you can upload the file, perhaps to Dropbox if you have an account?

    Hi Richard-san,

    I temporarily uploaded the app package to my Dropbox below:
    and attached the changes to build the app.
    The Edgar.app contained in edgar-1.19-Yosemite+-20150103.dmg works on Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10 or higher version.

    When starting Edgar.app, Edgar.app runs the following steps:
    1. /Applications/Edgar.app/Contents/MacOS/edgar loads
    the Bash-style shell script
    ~/Library/Application\ Support/Edgar/common.conf
    describing some environment variables.
    For example, localized variables like gettext
    export LANG=ja_JP.utf8
    2. /Applications/Edgar.app/Contents/MacOS/edgar kicks
    the proper binary /Applications/Edgar.app/Contents/MacOS/edgar.bin.
    I will contain README for Edgar.app if I provide the next app package.

    Hi Richard,

    For the latest version,
    I temporarily uploaded the dmg image to my Dropbox below
