    Alas, the 64-bit Linux binary doesn’t work on my Linux Mint box. (Sad face :codemafia: )

    Welcome back 🙂 Any new tunes on the horizon for Pioneer?

    Oh, lots and lots!

    I’m still, however, no closer to finding a solution to the main stumbling block, which is that everything I write sounds like MIDI. I have no idea what software everyone else in the world is using but, whatever it is, they’re not letting me in on the secret.

    Emajogi, the problem here is that you are tracking robn as upstream, not pioneerspacesim. Rob doesn’t have the alpha tags in his repo. His master is bang up to date, though, since he’s the merge monkey.

    How do I change that?

    Interesting. git branch -a should at least show remotes/origin/alpha19-freeze. It’s state is equivalent to the release.

    Nope, it’s not there.

    Code:

    $ git branch -a

    I tried the other suggested commands to update tags, with the same results. (Never mind though; Brianetta’s suggestion to use ‘git checkout master’ works just fine.)

    Alas! The latest alpha isn’t there.

    Code:
    >git tag
    alpha10
    alpha11
    alpha12
    alpha13
    alpha14
    alpha15
    alpha16

    For the benefit of us 64-bit Linux people: how does one compile the latest version? The command used to be:

    Code:
    git checkout alpha18

    …which still works, but

    Code:
    git checkout alpha19

    produces the error

    Code:
    error: pathspec ‘alpha19’ did not match any file(s) known to git.

    By the way, the package libglut3-dev is now obsolete and has been replaced by freeglut3-dev. The Wiki http://pioneerspacesim.net/wiki/index.php?title=Compiling_pioneer doesn’t show this yet.

    This is the output from my netbook, running Linux Mint XFCE (Katya). If the output isn’t helpful, I can post the output from my other boxes later this weekend.

    By the way, I haven’t noticed any problems under Ubuntu 10.10, only under 11.04 and distros based on it (such as Katya). I am not planning to run Pioneer on my netbook; this just happens to be the computer I have with me.

    I did the usual Linux ‘check that your software sources are all ticked’ process; I couldn’t see any software sources, besides Source Code and the like, which should be ticked but aren’t.

    The compiling guide on the wiki, http://pioneerspacesim.net/wiki/index.p … ng_pioneer, no longer works.

    One of the dependencies listed on the page is no longer available (or has been updated, or is deprecated – I’m not sure which. Too much of a technophobe to work it out.)

    sudo apt-get install libsigc++-2.0-dev libglut3-dev libglew1.5-dev libsdl1.2-dev libvorbis-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev dh-autoreconf git libfreetype6-dev

    I compiled and ran Alpha13 just fine on my Linux Mint box which has the dependencies I downloaded, in order to install Alpha12.

    I’ve been trying to collect screenshots of all the bodies in all the systems within 20 light years or so of Earth.

    Taking the ship’s control panel into account, it’s a real pain in the neck getting the planet lined up in the middle of the screen. And even then, my beautiful photographs look rather less beautiful with that control panel sitting at the bottom of every frame.

    Is there any chance of a screenshot taker, which automatically removes the control panel? Something like an F1 which switches between front view, rear view, exterior view and camera would be good. And it would be just dandy if one could nominate a folder in which to save all the screenshots you take.

    Terrific! A 3D galaxy with real stars in their real positions are numbers #1 and #2 on my personal Pioneer Wishlist.

    I felt it was easy to get disorientated while watching the video, though. (This may have been because I was watching it on a tiny netbook.) Will there be some easy way to recentre the axes, so that x is horizontal and y is vertical, again?

    Hi Leonardo,

    Another composer reporting in. I really like the water track. Looking forward to hearing more.

    As to your piece, emajogi, I find it to be quite charming, if somewhat derivative. 😉 There are places where you quote Strauss note for note and I expect the piece to continue as Strauss, but it doesn’t, which I find a bit jarring, but you have a nice theme and nice waltz. The synth tonalities remind me of an old calliope or merry-go-round.

    Guilty as charged! I was trying to produce something that everyone could recognise as a rip-off of the Blue Danube, but which was still original work – better, I thought, for a game to have its own tunes, however derivative, than using exactly the same pieces that dozens of games have already used.

    I’ve heard it so often, now, that my ears don’t notice the moments that would give everyone else a headache 😀 . The painful bits could be easily be rewritten, if anyone thought it was worth it.

    By the way, the synth tonalities you mention are there because Sibelius uses a crappy sound (sample) set. There are much better sound sets available, so it’s not necessary to put up with something that sounds like one of those Yamaha keyboards you can buy from Toys’R’Us. I wouldn’t go out and purchase one, though, until I was sure I was going to need it. (By the way – computer music sounds rubbish on a laptop. It needs to be heard on headphones, or with proper amplifiers.)

    Here’s an update to the Blue Danube replacement / docking music that I posted a few days ago.

    There are plenty of problems – not least that Sibelius isn’t very good at playing notes in the right order – but this recording ought to be clear enough to set your toes tapping. It’s four minutes longer now, too.

    (Edit: Link fixed)

    For the best effect, listen while watching the docking sequences in 2001:A Space Odyssey.

    This afternoon I had a go at writing a bit of music for docking sequences. It should sound faintly like the Blue Danube waltz. If anyone likes it enough, I’m willing to write more.

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/27128646/emajogi%20waltz.ogg

    It’s obviously not finished, and some moments are a bit rough around the edges, and Sibelius has some strange ideas about rhythm…
