zget 4

Post by Nach »

http://nsrt.edgeemu.com/zget.zip

What's new:
zmingw - added some missing DLLs, updated some packages.
Added zdjgpp.
Searching for zmingw/zdjgpp at first is optional.
Can now optionally build ZSNES for DOS.
Can update SVN to a particular revision.
Can download ZSNES HTML documentation.
Can clean out object files before building.
Can use release grade optimizations.
Now provides some instructions on exit how to setup paths.

This also marks the first release of zget to be worked on entirely from Linux.

Enjoy, and no complaints, just send money.

Cool... Good job.
But isn't it weird how it only tells you cleaning the files from previous ZSNES builds can take an hour AFTER you answered whether you wanted to do it ?

I suggest glasses or something.
Read carefully:

Code: Select all

Note: Answering yes to the following question can make the compile
      process take an hour (1 GHz CPU) or more depending on your PC.

Use release grade optimization? (y/N):

What exactly are release-grade optimizations?
whicker: franpa is grammatically correct, and he still gets ripped on?
sweener2001: Grammatically correct this one time? sure. every other time? no. does that give him a right? not really.

Doesn't it just tell NASM to use -O9999 or something?

Yes.

I would like to take the opportunity to mention that since you are able to download the the ZSNES docs, please please look them over and see if everythings looks alright. If there is any confusion in the descriptions in any of the sections should be directed at the Docs forum.

What does that do exactly? I've not used NASM much so excuse my ignorance.

It tells NASM to optimize the code as best possible when compiling. As I understand, it can make ZSNES faster.

You get more optimizations at the expense of compile time.

Oh ok. I wonder how long it would actually take to compile on a ~2Ghz machine.

I can have ZSNES compiled (based off 5-27-06 WIP) in about a minute

Test machine: 2.7GHz Celeron.
Also, my 1.8GHz AMD Sempron.

Meh, those types of compiles are nothing. Just don't complain if you have a 400MHz K6-2 and it takes 3hours on a std compile.

It takes 15-20 mins for the "release grade" option on my Athlon64 3000+ (2GHz, 1MB L2 cache) so start there. Otherwise it is really really really fast.

I have the same processor so so I should expect roughly the same then.

Reminding franpa how much easier to copy+paste a name would make this so much easier, but alas.. it appears to be a really difficult task.

Typo:
"ZSNESW.EXE when succesfully compiled is in..."
That's right before the UPX compression question.

Not that this matters...
