So uh, there's a new KevEdit out. Mostly a ton of bitman bugfixes and refactoring, with a couple of bugfixes and DOSBox support (linux only) by myself. I would post about this to the z2 forums, but they... don't work I guess?

Go get it, ZZTers, and tell me if it actually works or not :)

For reference:
Configure KevEdit for cross-compile to DOS
./configure --host=i586-pc-msdosdjgpp --without-sdl

Configure KevEdit for cross-compile to Windows
PATH=/opt/xmingw/bin:$PATH ./configure --host=i386-mingw32msvc

The only changes should be bugfixes. What were your suggestions? Did they get into the TODO?

So are you saying I should use this to make a ZZT game? ;)

And here I thought ZZT was dead. Posted not two days ago. Huh. Cosmic DJ moment -- I was just chatting about ZZT for the first time in probably a year, when somebody pointed me to the ZZT++ site, which the code had been updated in the last 4 hours (for the first time in quite a while it looks like). Anyway, the web site design looked really familiar to me, so I googled "Kev Vance" because I thought it might have been the KevEdit site that it reminded me of. The first hit was the cv_shrine, and the first thing I see is... myself. Which reminded me of all the old work on the EZZT Caverns remix. Anyway, next hit I discover that you've been a low ID slashdot member all this time! I never knew that... And when I finally got to the livejournal hit I find out that KevEdit has been updated not two days ago. Freaky.

Anyway, pardon the existential ramblings (blame it on the 4th of July festivities :), but that was one crazy trip down memory lane.

Re: Whoa

That is pretty wild, considering the last KevEdit update was in 2002. This update was the result of me having more free time than... well, than when I started writing KevEdit!

But yeah, I am always shocked at how ZZT is still alive every time I check.

Good to hear from ya :D
