4.2.0 windows sdl2 frontend

Hi, I am new to Angband. I wanted to play Angband on my Windows machine but I don't like how it has been compiled. Therefore, I decided to fix the code and create makefiles to compile the ncurse and sdl2 client with msys2. The PR is over here: https://github.com/angband/angband/pull/4424

For those who want to test it, I am sharing my sdl2 build here: https://github.com/Adriankhl/angband...4.2.0-win-sdl2

Feel free to report any issue here, though I am not an expert so I may not be able to solve it.

Now it is time for me to enjoy my Angband

Does SDL2 have working sound? I compiled 4.2.1 this morning with SDL2 and I can't seem to get sound to work.

I just tried your windows SDL2 using WINE and I heard no sound either.

In both cases I enabled sound in-game. Any ideas?

There was another recent thread about this that may be of interest: http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=10096

I don't normally play using SDL2 or sound, but I just did some experiments to see if I could get the sound working. I wasn't able to. However, I was able to get the SDL2 frontend working using SDL sound. I haven't tried this with the precompiled version, but here's what you'd need to do if you're compiling your own:

Code:
./configure --with-no-install --enable-sdl2 --enable-sdl-mixer
make
cp src/angband .
./angband  -ssdl -msdl2
Once you're in the game, you'll still need to enable sound in the "=a" menu.

Thanks moose!

I'm on my 4th day with linux. I don't know much yet. What would I need to do to clean this compile/install up before I do a second compile/install? How can I control where it gets installed?

To cleanup the previous build run:

Code:
make clean
Do you know what commands you ran the first time you compiled it?

It's partly a matter of preference. I don't do a system install (--with-no-install) and just run Angband directly out of the source directory. If you want it installed at the system level, then remove that flag and run the following:

Code:
make clean
./configure --enable-sdl2 --enable-sdl-mixer
make
make install
angband  -ssdl -msdl2
Again, I don't usually do the install, so I can't say for certain what will happen, but I believe it will install Angband to some /usr directory and you might need elevated permissions to run it (like: sudo make install).

This is what I did first time.

Code:
./autogen.sh
./configure --enable-sdl2 --enable-sdl2-mixer
make
sudo make install
Been running with angband -msdl2

Cool, so I would expect this to do the trick for you:

Code:
make clean
./configure --enable-sdl2 --enable-sdl-mixer
make
sudo make install
And then run with:

Code:
angband -ssdl -msdl2
You seem to be doing great for only having used linux for 4 days!

Sorry, what I meant was that I think I would prefer to do the no install. Can i just delete the folder it installed angband to after I do make clean? My windows background makes me hesitant to delete things, without uninstalling. Not really sure how linux file system and installing works yet.

It's installed in usr/local/share/angband currently

Yes, you should be able to just delete /usr/local/share/angband. There might be other files that you'd want to cleanup too. For example, /usr/local/etc/angband, /usr/local/share/doc/angband, and /usr/local/games/angband.

Doing so isn't really related to running "make clean", which is just deleting the files that were created in the Angband source directory as a result of compiling.

I'm too lazy to check, but maybe "make uninstall" (*before* you configure --with-no-install) works?
