Tryin to build pbo (MakePbo.exe) without mission and config.cpp, but looks like -J now working, how to ignore Ignore lack of mission.sqm or config.cpp?

Here are the rules:

There are two kinds of pbo:
+A mission.pbo : contains a mission.sqm intended for use in mission space
+An addon.pbo which uses engine space addressing.

a config.cpp is required because of it's contents and because the engine must know the name of this addon. (the file name is irrelevant).
>every addon requires <
class cfgPatches
{
   class NameOfPbo
   {

The reason for the change is that people are looking for my watermark signature inside a pbo to check if the addon is 'good'. If found, they look elsewhere for basic issues knowing that my tools have covered the usual errors.

people were  using my tools as a stamp of authority that their addons were 'good', without having to do any work to ensure that they were.

 

You can no longer use my tools to make 'wyswig' (-N) pbos. because wyswig doesn't look for errors. Great for you, terrible for the user of your addon.

I have the same problem as others:  rapify cannot be found.

Hi Mikero,

 

You have mentioned that the subscriber version of your tools will 'allow' unbinarised config.cpps to be the pbo in the next release. Can you let us know when will that be?

early this week, am putting some finishing touches in other areas and testing all of them first.

the major reason for cpp of course is to now 'allow' >and detect<!!! that the config is using evals that can only be known at game load time. Most are normal and can be binarised, but there's a trend these days towards using statements like scope=__EVAL(something strange;};

As soon as you have done it please let us know.

latest releases of pboProject and the dll 'allow' text config.cpp and mission.sqms. Irrespective, the files themselves are still checked for errors before being accepted.

not even going to bother answering that.

 

Might be useful to update the link in your first post. I know it's obvious and easy to Google but yeah.

That's why I asked, cos the link on the front page didn't work and on google I got that one.

I faced a similar situation yesterday, but a complete reinstallation did not help them. But the main thing is after removal.

assuming you're using the subscriber version of my tools Mr Bullet, simply download the auto updater from your personal webpage (it's the blue download button). It will indicate Any tool that's out of date and give you the option to upgrade it.

 

the error message you display above always happens when my dll is not compatible with the exe tool you want to use
