I am going the windows X64 route, and so far, I have needed:
Microsoft .NET framework SDK (so I can do 64 bit builds)
Microsoft Visual studio (even more garbage I needed to install to make so I can compile 64 bit things)
Wish me luck, If I get this to work i will upload a binary for non-gurus to enjoy the 64bit goodness too.It will only take me a minuet, and will save them from all the time it takes to download and install all the microsoft crap.(so far around 400 megs and counting. I am quite sure that the dial up people will appreciate this.)
If I have time I will attempt the *.nix versions too, and upload what I get.
well, just 10 more minuets of downloading, and I can attempt this 🙂
Yea the 32 bit version runs great, I have a monster system :
amd 4800+ x2 +64bit
4 gigs ram
and a 7900 gtx 512 meg graphics card form nvidia.
That is not the point though :p
I have a 64 bit system, and very little 64 bit software….this damages my ego!!
it is exciting to hear about any 64 bit application, I have been running windows x64 and various flavors of user made unix since 2003.
my only 64 bit applications so far:
unreal tournament 3
Blender 2.45 (only 64bit in linux 🙁 )
7Zip (awesome, de-compresses twice as fast as the windows unzipper)
well anyways… I load the .sln file into visual C++ and it tells me it has to convert the file… I say ok… it converts it, then I tell it to build and in the console window it just ticks away and says everything is file not found,for about 10 minuets 🙁
also in the project property’s, it will not allow me to assign 64bit to the packages, it just stays in 32 bit mode. I have installed 64 bit .NET SDK like it says on the M$ website… but it still does not work for me 🙁
I went and got the BOrland C++ free compiler like it says in the COMPILE file, but this too is only in a 32 bit flavor 🙁
I have a 64 bit Dev C++ is it possible to use this? I am able to build Blender 3d with it without a problem (the 32 bit version).I also did a build of SWF Tools a while back to play with the bleeding edge Jpeg2SWF.exe.
BTW if you guys list a 64bit file at PLanetAMD64.com, I bet you will get a jump in your downloads ++a few thousand . 😀
