Current Mac OS X status
« on: April 24, 2008, 08:32:19 am »
Hi

I'm very interested making games for Mac using SFML. What is the current status of Mac OS X port? Is there a complete 1.2 version for this OS? Is there a site where I can see its current status?

Thanks in advance

Ceylo

There is no complete version for now, you'll have to wait :P . I'm currently working on a Cocoa implementation which is rather comprehensive but not usable because of a few remaining bugs.

Thanks you Ceylo for your response and porting effort. Do you have a deadline or something like that?  :D

Uh... I'd say it'll be ready for next summer (yeah I know it's wide and a long way :roll: ) but I can't be positive. It depends on whether I quickly fix the remaining bugs.

I expect the port to be ready only for next summer because as a 17 years old boy I'm a bit busy, I've got homework, exams in about 2 months... but the good point is I'll probably get a new laptop (in june or july) and I'll able to do much more tests for miscellaneous Mac OS X versions. I'm currently using Mac OS X 10.3.


P.S.: I'm French and trying to improve my English. Please tell me my mistakes if you notice some.

Are you doing the official Mac port or is this a separate effort?  I was under the impression that the Mac port was back on track and a bit more imminent than a year away.

This is the official port. I think Ceylo was talking about this summer, not the next year's one ;)

I indeed meant "this" summer :mrgreen: . I thought "this" and "next" meant the same here...

I don't need the Mac version so soon, but this summer is ok. Thanks again for your work :)

How'd it go? I'm awaiting the Mac port to be able to start working on an app. I'd be happy to finish an almost-finished port if you don't have time to.

It depends on the Mac OS X version you're using. I wasn't able to make my work crash on my Mac :( (10.3), but it does crash with 10.4 and 10.5.

You can have a look at the sources from the SVN repository and tell me if you notice something relevant. Otherwise you can wait for me to finish the port. It should be ready in less than a month (time to take exams and get my laptop).

The point isn't really a lack of time but my "old" Mac OS X version.
