I AM A CODING GOD.
Not really, more like a blooming idiot. I solved the issue I was having, the problem was not in fact the make file, but the makefiles inability to execute its own recipes because it did not have the tools it needed. WELL WHY IS THAT KARICTER, I THOUGHT YOU FOLLOWED THE STEPS TO A T?
Well you see, I did, however I did not realize that the step to export said tools into the cmd shell was needed EVERY TIME YOU START THE MYS SHELL.
See the step:
Navigate to MinGW\msys\1.0 and run msys.bat. This will start a cmd-like shell where the following entries will be made.
Add the MinGW toolchain to your PATH with export PATH=$PATH:/c/MinGW/bin. Replace /c/MinGW/ with the directory into which you installed MinGW (/c/ stands for drive C:, so if it’s in F:/foo/bar, you’d use /f/foo/bar).
Navigate to the CDDA source code directory.
Compile using make TILES=1 NATIVE=win32 LOCALIZE=1 and unless there are problems, it should produce a CDDA binary for you.
If you dont want tiles you can change TILES to 0.
If you dont want localization you can change LOCALIZE to 0.
SO, The reason I was recieving the error, was when I:
[quote=“Karicter, post:5, topic:10668”]So, after going silent the past few days while i retaught myself parts of code, I realized that the issue here is this portion at the end:
Makefile:479: recipe for target ‘objwin/tiles/overmap.o’ failed
make: *** [objwin/tiles/overmap.o] Error 127
I attempted a clean reinstall of all the necessary programs based on the proper windows compiling method given to me earlier in this thread, and while it ALMOST worked, it failed when it hit a snag in the code I had written concerning my handloading mod. However after fixing said code and trying to compile with the fix, it came back to this problem, though with a different O file. So, I have concluded that it is an issue with the .obj recipe written in the Makefile:
$(CXX) $(CPPFLAGS) $(DEFINES) $(CXXFLAGS) -c $< -o $@
For some reason, the end portion [ -c $< -o $@ ] is not helping whatsoever, when everything Looks sound. Is there anyone that can help with this? LIke I said, i think I’ve narrowed it down to this issue with the Makefile.[/quote]
SO, I had done all the steps right, but received in an error in the code I wrote because I’m an idiot. I fixed it,closed the shell and reopened it, THEN TRIED TO COMPILE WITHOUT THE CRUCIAL EXPORT STEP FROM BEFORE.
Lesson learned. I suck at coding. If you are reading this at some point whoever wrote that step-by-step, Please add a quick note that the “export PATH=$PATH:/c/MinGW/bin” command is needed every time you use a fresh shell; it’ll at least help anyone stupid enough to try coding without extensive prior knowledge.
