WIP build downloads
« on: July 29, 2019, 12:29:50 PM »
Various WIP builds can now be downloaded from
https://github.com/finalburnneo/FBNeo-WIP-Storage-Facility/releases

Currently there are also Windows XP specific builds available but should they stop working you can also download a WinXP-compatible build @
https://ashura.mameworld.info/nightlybuilds/builds.html  (scroll down to the bottom of page for the link)

Depending on the number of recent commits it could go a bit out of date (usually only by an hour) but it does at least have the git commit hash so you can work out which commit it is you are downloading...

Disclaimer: These are not supposed to be proper releases but are handy for testing and they are provided so people don't have to download other builds that risk having nasty things in them. Having said that If you find any issues please report them!

Thank you very much, let's see how it goes  :smilie:

One question, does fbn-win32-gcc-xp.7z refer to a version for Windows XP?

Greetings

VS builds are on hold until I figure out wtf appveyor has done to stop the DX SDK from being found.

VS builds are back + with added bonus of really messing up the git commit history.

Also, as an FYI, I have started to move over to GitHub actions, so expect a failure to be reported until that is fixed (give me 72 hours or so lol) although the WIP builds should still be working whilst appveyor is still hooked up.

Hello,
Simple little question^^:
Is there an interest of the gcc version? (If it is no longer compatible with XP as before, it seems that gcc <8 remains compatible).

Yes, it will become compatible again.  Appveyor annoyingly changed its tools, we're working on a solution.
I use gcc 8.x and it makes xp-compat exe's, I don't even recommend to use the vs builds, vs introduces too many bugs.

best regards,

The gcc build is stable, and is what most of the devs use.  Avoid the vs build like the plague :)

The WIP storage facility now also has XP compatible builds. I'd only use them on XP though, the other build is using a much newer compiler.

XP build is compiled with mingw/gcc 5.3.0
For years I compiled my builds with mingw/gcc 4.8.1, and they ran fine for everyone :)
IMO the XP build from appveyor will work fine on any system - including XP, but the non-XP build will only run on Win7+. (or maybe Vista?)
