Unofficial BZFlag 2.0.13 Mac Build

Since there has been no updated Mac build in a while, and there are several new features and bug fixes since the last build, I made a Mac build of the current 2.0 branch SVN code with a few changes. This build has a few advantages/changes over the 2.0.10 build, including:

Code: Select all

* Fixed bug in BZFS to counter one known spamming method.
* Source cleanup.
* Changed fonts to DejaVu.
To these I added other patches/fixes:

Code: Select all

* Build is a lot smaller due to stripping of debugging symbols.
* BZFS binary actually supports loading plugins, unlike current 2.0.10 binary on SourceForge.
* New disk image background picture, courtesy of Winny.
* Trepan's backported stencil shadow fix - see http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=14129
* Trepan's mouse clamp feature (see link above).
* Trepan's anti-flicker feature to eliminate "z-fighting" (configurable in Display menu and stops texture flashing, see link above).
* Changed fonts back to what they were in 2.0.10.
This build is for Snow Leopard on Intel only. It may also work on earlier Mac OS X versions on Intel processors. Unfortunately, the 2.0 branch code no longer builds on Tiger or earlier versions on Intel or PPC, so I cannot build a Universal Binary like 2.0.10 was. I have looked into this extensively, but have not been able to trace the error to any specific change. I would be open to feedback for whether this build works on earlier versions or not.

You can download the build here: http://fairserve.bzflag.net/builds/2010 ... 2.0.13.dmg
Also, as required by the LGPL license, source tarballs for this build are available here: http://fairserve.bzflag.net/builds/20100120/

This is an unofficial build and is not supported by the BZFlag project or developers. The usual LGPL license agreement and disclaimers apply. This unofficial release of a 2.0 branch Mac binary does not reflect on the timeline for the release of BZFlag 3.0.

I can confirm that this build does not work in Leopard 10.5 on Intel processor.

Code: Select all

Trace/BPT trap
Unless there is a conflict with my previously installed libs...

Not on my snow leopard with intel processor. Is it a 64 bit build?
