Massaria defies the humiliation of being the first on this board, laughs at the fact that he'll ask a question which is probably more a cygwin/linux question, and jumps in headlong:

I have real trouble unpacking all the versions I've downloaded.
I have the following archieves:

I use cygwin, and if I don't have the right utilities installed (I have gunzip), I can get them.

I humbly ask that you guide me to sucessful unpacking, maybe even compilation, of these files.

Thank you :)

Not using SWR so I can't be of help when it comes to compiling/using but I assume that's pretty similar to FUSS.

As far as unpacking if you don't have the packages installed for it in Cygwin, try getting WinRAR (free) and using that. It seems to handle empty folders (ala /corpses, etc) correctly and archives them right as well. It also should be able to open up the *.tgz archives and a host of others that WinZip at times has given me grief with, for obvious reasons.

Anyway, I hope that helps. I've been using WinRAR without a problem for quite a while and it's my archiver of choice.

One only needs to use the tar package to do this. If you have tar and gzip/gunzip installed, then you can just do this from the Cygwin command line:

tar -xzvf packagename.tgz

That should unpack any of the FUSS packages just fine. The Cygwin command line acts just like it does in Linux, so it will make empty dirs and such that the codebase needs. Don't need to bother with winrar and buying a license for it and all that other hassle.

Thanks for the help. The tar command worked fine, but I'll keep that windows based archiever in mind.

So I've grown up ever so sligthly, and now have to concern myself with running the thing too.

I get perhaps some 30-40 lines of errros when i do ./SWR.exe. I might even be able to fix some of these if I knew enough about Linux commands to see all those lines that scroll out of view. This has annoyed me a great deal in the past too. Perhaps you drop me a command to look over, that would serve this purpose?

The last lines I see are:

ASSIGN_GSN: Skill tail not found.
ASSIGN_GSN: Skill brew not found.
ASSIGN_GSN: Skill droid not found.
ASSIGN_GSN: Skill makeempgrenade not found.

Then it returns instantly to the prompt, no programs running.

Help the Newbie! He wants to see the world too! :P
