Why wont it let me LOAD....

Screw it,
If i had solved my problem you would all have had to
watch 36 fucking parts of Retroholica by genesis project at X2012 so i guess there is a higher purpose to not letting me irq load with on the fly decompression...

I thought i saw the light when i discovered the
Plushsqueezer V2 and integrated that loader in several
of my unfinished demos but it keeps fucking up some of my stable interupts, not all and i cant see a pattern and i have kind of given up.

I am not a multi platform programer, i love oldschool coding on the 6502 but if you ask me to compile something in a linux environment or some weird C++ cross platform compiling there is just no way, and since life still gets in the way i will most likely give up because there are more fun things to do then failing at compiling a loader with on the fly decompression for a 35 year old fucking computer !!

I managed to compile Dreamload with just the "normal" unpacked irq loading and it worked great but diskspace will soon be an issue..

Could someone please come up with a guide for compiling
both the Krill and Dreamload loaders with decompression and flip disk options in a Windows 7 64bit enviroment..

Sincerly yours:

I'm a linux user since 3 or 4 years, but I was always on Windows, so I wasn't born with it or anything like that. I find it weird that programmers such as yourself have difficulty with it, especially nowadays. I use Spindle and I had to compile it, because there's no binary for the linux. IIRC it was just make && make install and I doubt Krill's loader is much harder (if at all) than that. Frankly, if you can code just fine on Windows but struggle on Linux then you must have some weird habits / way of work, because programming anything is way easier on Linux. Idk, I don't want to come out mean but I just find it weird, you know ?

(when I say Linux i mean GNU + Linux but I refuse to use that retarded name, should call it gnulix or something lol)

when you want to add a loader to your trackmo, you dont want to learn all the things that comes with linux, to compile something with lot of switches etc, and solve all the issues that come with it aswell (running it on windoes, hence you dont know linux for a reason, right?) you are not familiar with, it will take a LOT of time to do that from scratch (0.001% linux practice) and it already takes aeons to make a demo.

I've downloaded krill's loader and compiled it. I can make some video tutorial if one wants that.

typing "make" really needs loads of practise. i still struggle at it at times >_<

Well, actually, on BSD you'll most likely have to install gmake and then type 'gmake'

Which increases the learning curve *a lot*.

(yup, I'm a wise-ass)

If the Makefile was written carefully it can work with BSD Make as well but it's very easy to use GNU Make only features.

last time I tried I couldnt even compile bitfire with axis' help, probably I am very lazy and stupid. believe it or not its hard for someone with no linux practice, hardly any make practice and whatsoever.

thing just dont work as expected, there's lot of small quirks. fex even setting PATH gave me trouble, trying to do it 3 different ways until the 2nd way did it for the 3rd time and 2nd reboot somehow :)
