Well, almost for sure this year is going to be a better year than last.

Let's hope the vaccines work as advertised and leave this pandemic behind soon!
P.S. Year ago: viewtopic.php?p=116072#p116072

Since 2018 there are no any news on next YFSlight release, even mostly nothing about its development activity.

But, to be fear, few commits pushed in CaptainYS' public source repo:

Why must you hurt me this way.
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

It's already January 19 while I was procrastinating!

Playing Daikoukaijidai (Uncharted Waters) on FM TOWNS Emulator Tsugaru

If I think of why do I play retro games, I was not able to buy many games when I was using FM-7 and FM77AV because I was a kid, and I was too busy learning 3D graphics and C programming when I was using FM TOWNS. New games must be much more sophisticated and spectacular than games from 1980s and 1990s. Nonetheless, there were many games that I was interested but I didn't play back then. I feel those are unfinished business before moving on to modern games.

Daikoukaijidai, or Uncharted Waters in English, was one of them. About 30 years ago, my high-school friends were playing it. It looked fun, but I was just watching. Once I graduated high school, I spent most of my time to write my own flight simulator for FM TOWNS. I even didn't notice Uncharted Waters was released for FM TOWNS then. But, I was able to win a copy in Yahoo! Auction. I was looking forward to playing it.

But the problem was time. Once I start, I knew it was going to take time. I kept it on hold until this winter break. Then, finally after 30 years, I played Uncharted Waters on my FM TOWNS Emulator Tsugaru.

The file in the CD-ROM, VER.DAT indicated Ver 1.00 Rel 1.00, date was 1990 10.31. I have encountered at least four bugs during my play. I was able to patch three of them. The other one was not so critical, and I cannot re-produce it again. One of them was critical and if you encounter it you cannot continue and you need to start over from the beginning. The situation will be saved to the data file. Resetting and resuming from the save data does not help. Another one was less critical. It seemed that you could get around by resetting and loading from the previous save data. The rest two were something that should have been caught if someone play tested from the beginning to the end. Therefore, I am suspecting that nobody play-tested FM TOWNS version Uncharted Waters from the beginning to the end before the release. I am still wondering if KOEI released a fixed version later.

Unfortunately there is no Uncharted Waters English translation of FM TOWNS version. So, unless you can read Japanese, there is a language barrier to play FM TOWNS version of Uncharted Waters. But, if you are interested, it is available for Windows, Android, and iOS. It is a great game. I finished FM TOWNS version, but I'm thinking to try Windows version eventually as well.

TL;DR: There are no news on YSFlight development in this update from Soji, BUT in public open-source repo (where PolygonCrest and some sources of YSFlight GUI stored) there are updates, which probably includes fixes for compiling under Linux and macOS, and other fixes which are may be targeted for the next YSFlight release:

No, in YSFlight under Linux there is NO option for "Full screen" mode: non in "Option (O) > Config (C)", non in "Option (O) > Option (O)".

On Mac, there isn't that option in the 2015 version, but in Mac, you can maximize into full screen anyway so it isn't a big deal.

Soji Yamakawa released his old screensaver source code
CaptainYS wrote: Someone found my screensaver left in a PC that once was used by Lockheed Martine, and posted on YouTube. So, I excavated source code from my backups and set up build for Windows and FM TOWNS OS.

I made source code available from the following URL:
I never expected someone finds my screensaver from a quarter century ago. It was so amazing!

I didn't remember where I released it. But later I found that it was included in a CD-ROM bundled with a book I published back in 1996:

Code: Select all

Soji Yamakawa, "3D Screensaver SDK Saber", ASCII, 1996, ISBN4-7561-1403-2
I think only Windows version screensaver was in this CD-ROM. So, I believe it is the first release for FM TOWNS. It requires 486DX or faster (needs FPU), and it needs to be launched from Towns OS V2.1 L31 or newer because the executable is in .EXG format. I have tested on Tsugaru.

Global Empowerment Missions link was from NBC Today Show, so I guess it is a reliable organization. I've just donated some money, hope it helps people who are facing great difficulty.
To avoid scam, I opened NBC.COM then clicked on TODAY.COM link from NBC.COM, and then copied the link. Unless someone hacked one of these sites, or my browser was hacked. The link must be authentic.

Is Vladimir Putin following the ghost of Soviet Union?
Dear, YSFHQ, I'm 'u2fly' & I'm Ukrainian living in Ukraine.

VICTORY TO UKRAINE!
Help needed. I recently was feeling it takes veeeeeery long to build my CMake projects. Then I realized the project was always linking executables even if nothing has changed. To test if it was my CMake problem, or it is CMake and Visual Studio problem, I made the following short project.

Code: Select all

  cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.12)
  project(project)
  add_executable(main main.cpp)
CMakeLists.txt

Code: Select all

    int main(void)
    {
      return 0;
    }
main.cpp

I have confirmed that if I build from the command, Visual Studio generator always re-links the executable. It is not my CMake scripts. It is CMake problem. Now I need to wait veeeeeeeeeeeeeery long time to build Tsugaru, YSFLIGHT, and my research code. And, there is no fix.

The log from msbuild is:

Code: Select all

It says "Source compilation required: input is newer than output ." The problem is all input files are older than output files. One weird line is "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\C_1252.NLS does not exist; source compilation required." But this file exists. If it doesn't, I can make a dummy file and try again, but I cannot make this file exist on top of already existing file.

I thought I might have destroyed some setting. I tried this minimum project on my laptop, and the result was the same. Something was broken globally. I am suspecting other people may be experiencing the same problem. I haven't updated Visual Studio (unless it was automatically done.) I haven't installed a newer version CMake. It's like a bad call to the customer support: "Hey, my computer broke even though I didn't do anything."

I searched for keywords and file names, and found nothing useful. The solution I found on Stackoverflow didn't apply.

Strangely, if I compile from Visual Studio IDE, I don't get the problem. But, I cannot build from my script, so it is useless. Basically Graphical User Interface is useless in general. For the time being, I change generator to NMake Makefiles, but I cannot use --parallel option. I have no solution at this time :-(

If you know how to fix this problem, please let me know.
