The build that I compiled was with MakePrivateBuild with the Leader Var. equaling 2, thus the compiled build that I presented to everyone contains everything (omitting ImageDraw). If you would like to compile a build yourself, you too can utilize the 'MakePrivateBuild.bat' -- its sole purpose was to merely compile the build within the SVN folder with either default plugins or everything, this choice is given to the user within the terminal. Keep in mind that users with Windows 2000 && Windows Experience will be forced to compile everything regardless of their wishes, as Win5 based OS's were never shipped with the program 'CHOICE.exe'. Although, after discovering user input calls within the terminal, the program will be updated in the later future to handle more interaction on Win5 && later. Furthermore, the current and latest revision is still 1486. Thus, what I have presented to everyone is still the most recent compiled revision.

Hopefully this helps?

official Download Doom Builder - http://www.doombuilder.com/index.php?p=downloads

Somewhere, Codeimp has mentioned that he now considers Doombuilder2 as complete and will only entertain bug fixes.

'MakePrivateBuild' Beta 3 is now released. This build greatly improves processing, and includes one or two critical fixes to reduce crashing the program.

Thanks to C405129 for critiquing and sharing advice on this program!
  • Reduced the processing time during closing. (Windows automatically thrashes the Variables once the program is unloaded)
  • Changed the error message when CHOICE.exe reaches a fatal error to a nicer message.
  • Added SlimDX as a perquisite.
  • Expunged commented menu selections (3 && 4); I will not support SVN CMD line. Someone else can do this and further tweak this program to natively support it and including error handling.
  • Re-worded some selections in the menu.
  • Expunged detection code for SlimDX. This requires additional software and further manipulation to support it.
  • Further expunged references checks to SlimDX.
  • Removed references checks to MSBuild. It is not easily possibly to check MSBuild without having to scan all directories in a bloaty way. If MSBuild can not be found, there is already an error message for it.
  • Fixed an issue that would prompt the user that the already existing compiled software in ReadyBuildDir would be removed, but it would not fully work correctly.
  • Fixed a possible crash when CHOICE.exe reaches an error during switching to an nonexisting method.
  • Re-worded legalcrap => legal stuff
  • Added a message indicating that the build is now ready and where it is located.

Another beta release; I hope this will be the last update build that contains new features. Anyways,

Code: Select all

*Implemented: Easy Customizable Variables!  If the user does not have the same paths that this program specifies, the user can easily tweak a value within the custom variable!  headache-free approach?  The user however, must edit the variables within the block inside the batch file.
*Fixed: During Win5Compat==TRUE and if the ReadyBuild dir already exists, the user is prompted that it will be expunged, but it never happens.
*Fixed: Enforced the compiler to check the Plugin variable before compiling the software.
*Resolved: The compiler now checks if the parent folders exists before compiling any data within the folders.
Fixed Enforced a PAUSE state as the last step when the program closes; this should help to reduce premature terminations; otherwise, users can not view what is being displayed on the screen!
*Fixed Updated the Welcome/LegalCrap screen.  This program is now 'stable' with Windows XP (atleast that I can judge with Win5Compat==TRUE)
*Added: So much time giving in such a program, this deserves a CodeName!  {Codename Bootless Star}
*Changed: Users are no longer prompted to enter a key when the compiler cannot find the HTML Workshop.

Updated the MakePrivateBuild!

Beta 1

Code: Select all

*Fixed an issue when XPCompat == True, users would be prompted that a folder would be expunged even though that the folder did not exist.
*Slight code clean up

I checked the file after uploading to my service provider for both viruses and accessibility, both in which passed. And just recently (thirty minutes ago to be exact) I rechecked the file, everything on my side is fine. Following with NeoHippo, you are using the latest 7zip official build?

In case it might be useful, I pulled out all the key assignments. A couple of them are custom.

Fixed a variable name conflict in 'MakePrivateBuild.bat' (Var: Win5Compat => Win5Compatibility) with Windows XP compatibility mode.

HEY YOU! Stop following this post and follow this one!

And here it is!

[*]Doom Builder 2 (SVN) Revision: 1486
[*]Make Private Build (.batch)
[list][*]Pastebin (for those that feel safer with viewing it on Pastebin; I would - personally.)
[*]Pastebin (HotFix #1)
[*]Pastebin (beta 1)
[*]Pastebin (beta 2)
[*]Pastebin (beta 3)[/list][/list]

MakePrivateBuild.bat - Instructions:
Place the file in the same directory as 'MakeRelease.bat' within the DB2 WC, and also be sure that the following software is already installed:
[*]Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2008 (or 2010) C#
[*]SlimDX (2011 September)
[*] (OPTIONAL) HTML Help Workshop and Documentation[/list]
Before release, I tried to make this program a bit more compatible with Windows XP. Can someone be kind enough to send feedback regarding this programs performance, bugs, and even crashes that anyone encounters.

EDIT: Updated MakePrivateBuild; fixed a variable name that I originally forgot to change. This affects Windoes 5.x users.
EDITDeux: Fixed an issue when XPCompat==TRUE users would be prompted that the ReadyBuild dir would be removed even though it may not exist. Slight code clean up.
EDITDrei: BETA 2!!!
EDITQuadrupled: Beta 3 (Processing Improvement!)
