I've been struggling a bit with getting the code provided in some cel tutorials to compile. According to other threads, the reason for this is that my version of CS is either too old, or too new. Currently I am using the pseudo stable releases for both cel and cs (2006-01-27).

I wanted to try the maze tutorial, but apparently it is only included in the cvs (or svn) version.

Should I switch over to the svn version, or are there some nice step-by-step coding tutorials that is proven to work for the pseudo-stable version?

Just some comments on what version of CS and CEL you are currently using will also be helpful.

thanks


[edit:]
I decided to download the svn CS anyway and I'd like to make a suggestion: It would probably be a good idea to indicate the approximate size of the total download. For people like me (who pay per MB downloaded) it isn't a pleasant surprise to expect around 30MB (about the size of the pseudo-stable .gz.bz2 version) and then getting 240MB (I'm not even done with the download yet). Sad I should probably have tried the .gz.bz2 snapshots. Too late now.

The latest svn is pretty stable so I can recommend that.

I see if we can do that but that page is automatically generated so I'm not sure what options we have there.

Where did you find that huge download? I can't find it. It shouldn't be that big so I would like to know which url exactly has that size.

Some older daily snapshot had this size (they contained debug data, I don't know, why). The newer packages(including latest)  has the correct size.

It wasn't one of the links, I used svn. The exact command I used used:

svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/crystal/CS/trunk crystal

I'm not a "master" of svn, but I think (hope) that is the correct way of doing it.


While I'm busy posting, I'll also ask a quick question: With the pseudo-stable version (cs and cel) I had walktest, celtest and mechtest running without any errors. But with the svn version (july 23) walktest and celtest still works, but with mechtest I get a black screen. Everything seems to work fine (no error messages), but you can't see anything. The -relight command also doesn't have any effect. Any advice?

Yes, that's correct and in that case it is normal that you get 240 megs.

Hmm mechtest may be broken. Have to test it.
