2006_12_19 Irrlicht Mod for Irrlicht v1.2/BMAX v1.22
the .a and .dll files have been updated to Irrlicht v1.3. it is important to note that the mod distribution now contains the windows Irrlicht.DLL.
examples have not yet been updated but the current ones with compile and run with the new mod.
a few instructions...
for installing the mod:
extract the mod distribution zip file into your mod folder under blitzmax. this should create an irrlicht.mod folder under your mod folder and then the core.mod folder under that.
for installing the lib and dll files:
from the mod distribution:
copy BMAX\mod\irrlicht.mod\lib\win\Irrlicht.dll to your windows\system32 folder
copy BMAX\mod\irrlicht.mod\lib\win\D3DX81ab.dll to your windows\system32 folder
you can download the Irrlicht v1.3 MingW DX9/DX8 build at:
copy libIrrlicht.a to your BMAX\mod\irrlicht.mod\core.mod folder
copy Irrlicht.dll to your windows\system32 folder
copy D3DX81ab.dll to your windows\system32 folder
if you download the Irrlicht distro then:
copy lib\Win32-gcc\libIrrlicht.a to your BMAX\mod\irrlicht.mod\core.mod folder
copy bin\Win32-gcc\Irrlicht.dll to your windows\system32 folder
for other OS:
for Linux download: http://www.gprogs.com/irrlicht.mod/libI … n_v1_3.zip
for Mac download: http://www.gprogs.com/irrlicht.mod/libI … c_v1_3.zip
again a big thank you to Jonas! special note from Jonas on this "In addition to run properly on Mac Irrlicht needs the "MainMenu.nib" file in the Resources folder of the application bundle. "
i know the folder hes talking about from the main Irrlicht distribution. im not sure where to place it though. i think its in the same place as your main BMX file. as soon as i know for sure ill update here. for now you can download it at: http://www.gprogs.com/irrlicht.mod/MainMenu.nib.zip
after extraction, copy the .a file into the core.mod folder and rebuild the mod.
