Mr. Jeppe Nielsen: TreeGen with B3D 1.96?

Community Forums/Developer Stations/Mr. Jeppe Nielsen: TreeGen with B3D 1.96?

Happy Sammy(Posted 2006) [#1]
Hi Mr. Jeppe Nielsen,

Could TreeGen be compiled with Blitz3D 1.96?
I still could not run it on my laptop.
(As Blitz3D 1.96 seems to be most stable on all pc
With the new version of Decorator, the laptop could
run them now.
The title of my previous post (tree generator)
may be a bit misleading.)

Thanks in advance

I have recompiled the editor with version 1.96 of blitz3D:

Sorry to go political/off-topic, but when I see such casual, friendly cooperation as this:

I can't help but wonder what's wrong with government leaders all around the world. Kind of sad that officials with their nations' futures at stake can't get along as well as a forum full of Blitz coders from around the world. <g>

Sorry again for the politics (and I'm sure there are some serious reasons that make this sort of "real world" cooperation impossible... yadda, yadda).

Hi Jeppe Nielsen and WendellM,

Sorry to have any inconvenience caused.
Thank you for your new version.
But, I still get MAV! Very upset.
However, I find the problems -
It is related to code page of Windows.

I run the examples again, debug stops in
loadtexture command in ""
Then, I trace back to this statement.
Const tree_tempimagefilename$="TreeTempImage_!#? &"

Some sybmols at the end could not be realized by
Windows! (language specific)

I rename above as follows:
Const tree_tempimagefilename$="TreeTempImage_temp"
Then, all of your examples work!
I try to set the code page in Windows Xp to French
(My code page is different from yours) and reboot pc.
Then, I could run TreeGen successfully, but some app.
displays french chars.

Would you mind to change
Const tree_tempimagefilename$="TreeTempImage_x" 

where x stands for any english letter(s)
and re-compile TreeGen???

(If so, all Blitz users with different code page
could run your tools without problems.
Just one more step to success.)

Thanks in advance

Yes I will be right on it :-)

Didn't realize that that could be a problem.

Please download again, the file has been updated.

I have changed the temp filename to what you used:

Const tree_tempimagefilename$="TreeTempImage_temp"

Hope it works now.

Hi Jeppe Nielsen,

Thank you for your attention.
Sorry,Sir, did you change ALL temp. filename to
Const tree_tempimagefilename$="TreeTempImage_temp"

in TreeGen Source???
I try to download the new version with

It seems that filesize of "TreeGenSetup.exe"
and "TreeGen.exe" same as MAV ones. Certainly
I got MAV again.

Did I use the wrong download link???

Thanks in advance.

Jeppe Nielsen(Posted 2006) [#8]
Please try that link again :-)

I made a mistake in which files the installer should pack. It packed the old ones :-)

Hi Jeppe Nielsen,

It works! It Works!!!
Thanks a lot.
Each time I double-click the TreeGen and display MAV,
I could not imagine when the users said that this program is excellent.
Now, I could see many trees and even forest on my pc.
Great Tool!!! Thank you for your patience and hardwork.
