Quote from: Timothy on May 30, 2014, 09:05:36 AMThe user directory ought to be ~/Library/Simutrans (Application Support is apparently for "non-document specific files which aren't essential for the application to run" - so pak files maybe?), I was also thinking that making the game look for pak file folders in this location as well as in the app bundle would be a good idea (since opening the bundle and sticking in more files is kinda ugly).
Quote from: MCollett on June 05, 2014, 10:02:46 PM"document specific files" (i.e. saved games) shouldn't be in the Library in the first place: they should be ordinary, visible files that the user can keep anywhere he pleases, not just in some hard-wired save folder (and ideally, open with a double-click). Anything else that you might put in the Library (pak files, settings, simuconf, addons, ...) seems to me to fit under Application Support.Best wishes,Matthew
Quote from: Timothy on June 13, 2014, 04:44:17 PMTurfIt, did you have a chance to do a side-by-side performance comparison? I am not seeing that much of a difference between this and the SDL2 version myself.
Quote from: Timothy on June 13, 2014, 04:44:17 PMHow much interest is there in making a distribution for the mac app store? I would just go ahead and do it, but it's $99 for developer membership and the ability to submit apps there.
Quote from: TurfIt on June 13, 2014, 05:48:15 PMAren't there licensing problems with the app store?
Quote from: Ters on June 14, 2014, 11:27:45 PMOne can speculate that the reason Apple doesn't allow GPL is that GPL requires that source code is available from all distributors offering binaries. [...]But there is also the possibility that Apple requires some Apple-specific clauses in licenses for things published through their store.
Quote from: prissi on June 15, 2014, 09:44:52 PMThe artistic licence requires a sourcecode for any modified distribution. There is not really a difference to the GPL. (Which is principle could be a printout on tone slabs or microfiches).The difference is that the GPL says "You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein." while the Artistic Licence says "You may" i.e. you can distribute and if you do you must add a copyright note. See here for GPL.
