OpenITG Alpha 3 - Change Log
OpenITG, alpha 3 (March 17th, 2008)
Phew, it's been a while, hasn't it? Rest assured that the extra time was spent productively. :)
I gained two team members (infamouspat, matt1360) and matt set up an SVN server for us, so an amazing amount of work has been done in the past ~2 months. There's a lot of new stuff - enjoy!
Please note that this build will reboot if it crashes. I never thought to include apreference for it, but you can prevent it for now with "touch /tmp/no-crash-reboot".
Alpha 4 will have a "RebootOnCrash" preference (for PC builds only).
Patch support is fully implemented, and the Patch.rsa files are included for both ITG2 and future OpenITG patches. Patches of either type will work on OpenITG.
Also, please note that an experimental arcade build is available. ITGIO is untested, and PIUIO input is borked, but the binary should at least run on arcade cabinets. You'll need a few more libraries, but I'm honestly not sure which. Please track them down and get back to me.
You can compile arcade builds using config.h's "ITG_ARCADE" directive. configure should have a switch [--enable-itg-arcade], but it's been kind of spotty for me.
