PlayOnLinux 3.7.3

Sunday 14 February 2010 at 19:13 (0 comments)

Hi everybody !

PlayOnLinux 3.7.3 is now available !

[box title=New_PlayOnLinux_logo]https://www.playonmac.com/images/uploads/31.jpg[/box]

What's new for the users ?


- PlayOnLinux automatically extract icons during the installation process to use them in the main menu.
- A bug corrected preventing user from changing a program icon
- Few translations were corrected
- Definitive correction (we hope) of $PROGRAMFILES variable problem. Script are being rewritten.
- PlayOnLinux is now available in Greek (Thank you kapcom01)

A little bit more technical for the scriptors ...


- POL_LoadVar_PROGRAMFILES was created to assign the name of Program Files directory to $PROGRAMFILES variable. In few case, when the directory was called "Program Files", the following commande returned %ProgramFiles% instead of the real name, and it was the cause of many bugs in all the scrpts.
wine cmd /c echo "%ProgramFiles%"

- POL_LoadVar_PROGRAMFILES is automatically called on prefix creating. There is no need to use it in the scripts, we just need to erase old lines that cause bugs. To be sure that the scripts will be compatible with the old version, we started to replace

PROGRAMFILES=`wine cmd /c echo "%ProgramFiles%" |tr -d '\015' | tr -d '\010'`
PROGRAMFILES=${PROGRAMFILES:3}

by :

PROGRAMFILES="Program Files" 
POL_LoadVar_PROGRAMFILES

- When you make a shortcut with POL_SetupWindow_make_shortcut, if the icon argument is empty, POL will try to extract the icon from the exe file and use it.

Enjoy !

PS. A new version of PlayOnMac is also available, and compatible with Snow Leopard

Some changes in the team

Wednesday 28 October 2009 at 10:53 (0 comments)

Hello everyone!

Two of the members have seen their ranks being modified:

Berillions




Although Berillions got the scriptwriter status for a few days, the related announcement hasn't been made yet. It is done now :-)
A great thank to him.

MulX




For everything he has done for PlayOnLinux since the beginning of the project, MulX just got the administrator status. This status is mostly symbolic because he already had administrator privileges for quite some time.
MulX is the one to be contacted if there is a problem and I'm not available, since he has almost the same access rights than me.

Congratulations to you two!

Scripts for Steam games

Tuesday 27 October 2009 at 11:55 (3 comments)

Hello everyone!

Those of you who wander the forum may have noticed topics about several scripts for Steam games. The scripts were in test stage for a long time but are now ready for daily use. These scripts configure the following games:

- Half-Life 2
- Half-Life 2: Episode 1
- Half-Life 2: Episode 2
- Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
- Portal
- Team Fortress 2
- Counter Strike: Source

This last script is only an update of the previously available script for Counter Strike : Source with, in addition, a few bug fixes.
Compared to a standard installation, these Steam scripts bring an even easier installation as well as better performances, because we did select the best suited version of Wine for each game.

I want to thank in particular Obi1-46 for his graphic work (that you can see in the installers) as well as BlondVador, Panzer, Obi1-46 (one more time) and everybody else for their very exhaustive tests that allowed me to improve the scripts, and NSLW for pointing out a careless mistake of mine.

From now on, you will find these scripts directly in PlayOnLinux's "Install" menu.

A few screenshots:

Have fun :sunglasses:.
