Blender for windows Compiled and running ! Details....

I got to work this morning and threw in my libfrozen.lib from last night, for the final unresloved external, and ran the exe.

It appears to run just fine, but I can't guarantee anything for you of course ! I just did a test rendering, and added material, etc. Haven't tried much else. ...

I haven't modified the code yet to make it act as a publisher version yet either, Step one was just to get the code to compile.

The game engine appears to function somewhat, although physics don't appear to work. For example, dloc will work but force will not. This was to be expected though, they said they ripped it out.

Python scripting is busted right now too for my binary, this is a BIG problem. It may just be an error in my libfrozen.lib that I made last night who knows.

Once I get down how to compile this on paper, others could look too of course, and get these problems worked out.

PLEASE NOTE that I am still working on this, and I did some small "tricks" to get it to compile, for example, I still get about 10 linker errors, because of Library functions being redefined. I have to track down why. For now, I used the /FORCE:MULTIPLE option, which ignored multiple link definitions and just uses the first one.

I'm sure there are lots of questions about how to get this to compile, and I want to answer, but I need to organize everthing so if you want me to help it will take a little time...

Well it works for me (well not python, but hey) I was wondering though I thought that this version had AVI codec export for windows?

That's one of the first things i will try to hack into the source.

Given i have a working msvc project :)

Its a good start, well done nikolatesla20. Keep us posted bout the physics and python stuff! :D

I was wonderin what u ment by modifying the code to get the publisher bit to work though, cos i thought publisher was an intergral part of v2.25

Python appears to work if you use Python22.dll (Python 2.2)

I built blender using Python 2.2 sources, so that may be why.

Using python22.dll, I can successfully "import Blender". I can't do "import Blender210" though. Although I don't remember if that was a supported module or not anymore anyway. Probably just missing something in the libfrozen then if it was.

I'm still not an expert at that whole python freezing thing!

can you access the GameLogic object in real-time mode? thats if real time mode works at all, i kno u said physics dont

Yes, I think GameLogic works, because I loaded a very old game script that demonstrated moving vertices around in real time, and it worked.


Grrreat Job!!

WOW That works soooo well! You ROCK!! Great effort!

It also is nice to have an official Blender web site back, I can feel the community coming back already!

There are soo many bug fixes too, the menus and toobars don't have issues with my NVIDIA drivers anymore! I can maximize across both monitors!

Way to go everyone version 2.25 rocks!! Big thank-you!!

where do i get the python22.dll?? :P

CORRECTION: Python works with python2.0.dll

Sorry about that mistake, it looks like it was an error probably in my python script testing.

I looks like "import Blender" still works fine with Python20.dll as well.

I used the python20.dll from blender 2.23.

Rough Win32 compilation info.

The license key stuff can be modded once somone finds the code for it, I have't gotten around to finding it yet, because I have just been fighting to get it to compile first.
