SkyFS/BFS viewer 0.1 released

Submitted by Peter Speybrouck on Mon, 2007-09-10 18:07.

This is the first public release of my SkyFS/BFS viewer. This is a GUI application, a windows driver is for somewhere in the future.

Read below before downloading:

Features:
* runs on windows xp (does not work on vista yet)
* view files and folders on both SkyFS and BFS partitions
* copy single files from SkyFS/BFS partitions to your fat/ntfs partition.
* does currently only read actions so it should not alter your partition table or any partitions.
* generates a debuglog to identify problems that may still exist.



Freeciv ported

Submitted by Peter Speybrouck on Sat, 2007-09-01 17:26.

It seems that the latest beta of freeciv contains a new SDL client and it even seems to compile without modification!

Only a tiny patch is needed to make it run as root user but that's a nobrainer.

Package will be uploaded soon, here are a few teaser screenshots

DesktopCommunication updates

With the new C++ API it is now very easy to make your application controllable from other applications. With the old API you had to create various Interface and parse manually through messages sent to your application. The new API now does all this work for you automatically.



Super mario war

I ported Super mario war.

You can find version 1.8 alpha in the SkyOS softwarestore [link removed on request], I suggest not running it in vmware (slow).

Inheritance

I'm just so happy right now that I just have to announce this here.

We (my wife and me) will get our first child this year December, so I'm going to become father really soon. Wink

In the meantime (as many of you may know) we are still busy building our house which should finally be finished coming January.

And if this wasn't enough already I still plan to (and will) release new builds every two to four weeks.

Have fun!
