Win-cvs version setup.exe installer

Post #1by cartrite » 04.10.2006, 16:39

I created a setup.exe from the inno sript from the cvs version dated 10/04/2006. Here is the link .

A couple of things to note are that this version was built with the international support but the .dll's and po directories are not included yet. Depending on the file size, I may include them in the future. I think for now that copying those files and directories to the installed version will make that feature work.

The setup wil install Celestia in C:\Program Files\Celestia so you will have to rename it or install it to a different location if you don't want to overwrite your current version of Celestia. You should prompted before this happens.

This was built with Spice disabled.

To keep the file size down I didn't include the files in the hires folder.

This is also a rather slow connection so you'll have to be patient.

Along with the slow connection is a 1gb daily limit on downloads. If the link desn't work, it probally means that my daily limit has been reached. Apparently it will become available again the next day.

If there are files that you know are left out other than those mentioned above post here in this thread.

If you see bugs in the code please post them in the Celestia Bugs Forum or elsewhere. Just don't forget to mention which version of Celestia-cvs you are using.

I included an international version setup. This version also changes the default install directory from C:\Program Files\Celestia to C:\Program Files\Celestia-cvs to add some extra protection from your prior installed version being overwritten. It includes the po and po2 directories and the extra dll's. If there is a problem, let me know here. I have no way to test if the international features are working.

I provided a cvs update to the setup installer for October 19 2006.
It can be found here.
It includes the international files and libraries.
Spice is disabled.
The downloads are faster now. I just downloaded it myself in a couple of minutes at about 145 kb/second. It may vary though.

I am sorry Phoenix, you are right ofcourse ,
this was just the first "new" build available for 2 weeks or so.
I always want to make sure I do have the latest "relevant" updates
available.

I've checked in some new code that allows much more flexibility in how rotations are specified. This new rotation code doesn't suffer from the idiosyncrasies that caused headaches for people trying to deal with the ssc Orientation field.

Celestia uses a nonstandard coordinate system, mostly for 'historical' reasons. The y axis is normal to the ecliptic, the axis is the vernal equinox, and the z axis completes the right handed system. The net result is that you have to convert from the standard J2000 ecliptic reference frame to Celestia's internal coordinate system by rotating 90 degrees about the x axis.

I'm away from my dev machine now, but I'll post the transformation code tomorrow (or you can check out the code on SourceForge--see the LoadSampledOrientation() function in src/celengine/samporient.cpp. The 90 degree rotation is applied to the samples as their read, so that the creator of the orientation file never has to know about Celestia's coordinate system. I will eventually getting around to fixing Celestia to use the J2000 ecliptic reference frame internally, but that's a post 1.5.0 project.


Are these changes in the 10/21/2006 build?

Does anyone have information about the new rotation code?

I have been following the threads about orientation and am eager to see the updates to this area of Celestia.

Thanks

They should be.

I wrote down most of the information in the rotation thread in the Developer Talk forum. If you have a specific question about how to use the new code, post a reply to that thread and I'll try to help out. Selden has compiled some information from the forum and developers mailing list:

Currently, I'm away from my computer and I am writing this from a freind's computer. The last update I provided was oct 19 06. So this does not include the latest updates for reference frames which were commited a few days later. I will resume updating this setup when I get back home.

The cvs setup installers were removed today. Maybe this thread could be unstuck now.

This error can be occurred in your system due to window update that's why your system is crashed again and again and also occurring the error of setup.exe file , it can be out of danger whenever you will install appropriate window updates.
