Quickband update

Hi all

Just a note to say I'm doing some work on Quickband - rebasing it on NPP 0.5.2 (the original Quickband was based on NPP 0.4.something, from about 2004).

Should be a good game experience and a fun introduction to NPP.

QUickband was always a pretty minimal variant (only a small change from the original codebase) so I should have something to show for myself in a week or two.

A.

So, it is feasible to make the changes in #ifdefs and get them added to the NPP source code so that it'll remain fresh without any changes, and just require setting a compile flag?

Antoine and I are working on that, and we intend for Quickband (and possibly ironband) to be able to import the NPP development from now on (or at least the changes he wants in his variants.

I am also thinking of setting up an NPP github repository with quickband as a subversion so Quickband can import patches from NPP. Not sure which is easier.

I like the git/patch idea. I think combining the two games into a single piece of source code through #ifdefs would make the nice code too messy.

I agree, except I don't know how to do it. I am sure github is easy once we get used to it, but it looks like a steep learning curve.

We'll figure it out

... and plenty of other links from googling "git submodule".

NPP would be the "superproject", and Quickband the "submodule".

Thanks, Magnate!

NPP is now up on Github. 0.5.1 and 0.5.2 are the first two commits. The earlier versions don't have the right license to go on Github.

@Antione - This master branch is for releases. Soon a staging branch is going to be set up for the regular changes. I guess now we figure out how you "connect" to these branches, and what sort of rights you need to keep quickband up-to-date.
