Ah, this explains why maybe nobody has complained yet.

I'm not sure if this is something the AIOI should do.

I think that the LDView installer should take care of everything necessary,
without additional tweaking before or afterwards by the AIOI.

Thanks for the info. I'm not entirely sure I like all those defaults, but I'm guessing they're that way in order to produce faster rendering, which for thumbnails does make sense.


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released - Travis Cobbs - 2012-04-30

As far as I know, the AIOI does not directly use LDView's installer, but instead reproduces its behavior. This is done because LDView's installer really isn't designed to be packaged inside another.

I don't like those defaults, I better like

The AIOI doesn't use the LDView installer at all. I prefer let he AIOI handle the single files, reg keys, ... - for the sake of interaction with all the other progs. Only POV-Ray uses its own installer 'cos of the redistributable license.

ah, understood. thanks for the info.


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released - MoonMan - 2012-05-07

I'm a big fan of your program, and I'd appriciate a PowerPC version.

Thanks.


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released - Travis Cobbs - 2012-05-07

Unfortunately, I don't know how to create one. Apple has made it either extremely difficult or outright impossible to create PowerPC binaries using the development tools in Snow Leopard (which is the OS on my only Mac).


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released - Travis Cobbs - 2012-05-08

I have a question for my users.

One of LDView's warnings is "Whitespace in filename..." Given that white space is officially allowed as per the current LDraw spec, do you feel that I should remove this warning from LDView?


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released - MoonMan - 2012-05-08

I found this thread on the subject: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5333490/how-can-we-restore-ppc-ppc64-as-well-as-full-10-4-10-5-sdk-support-to-xcode-4

It looks like you'd have to intall Xcode 3. I have it on my system. I wonder if I could open your source files and compile them. Anyway, I'm just letting you know there is an audience for PowerPC if you happen to figure it out. Thanks for the great work so far.
