.... (idle for 19mn)
So disappointing/tiring [00:22]
https://twitter.com/textfiles/status/936753442554634241 [00:27]
bai: Multiple people coming in [00:34]
baiI should do a write-up of the challenges or something [00:34]
SketchCowYes please
Hi, hi, folks.

A_ScannerHello,
Somebody need a bit of help with c++ / javascript stuff?
[00:41]
SketchCowYep
bai can explain/provide a link
or 10
bai: Maybe we should do a google doc?
We can just add the overview and the rest quickly
hacking parrrty
[00:42]
A_Scannerawesome. I was just heading out to the 26oo meet but I can postpone going for a bit. [00:43]
bainah if you're heading out, go for it - we should really organize some of these thoughts so we can share and collaborate better, explaining them on irc for each person who wants to have a crack at it gets rough :D
it's a tricky problem with a lot of run-up knowledge
[00:44]
SketchCowYeah, just idle here and we'll work on that doc.
bai: Should I start it or you
[00:44]
A_ScannerGoogle docs sound pretty good. [00:44]
baigo ahead and start it and do the quick overview, and I'll fill in the details when I get a chance [00:45]
A_ScannerI've got 12/ish years experience in programming and I like challenges. I learned with C++ but haven't dipped into it as much as I'd like. I'm good at gnarly problems tho/ [00:46]
baihow's your JS? [00:46]
A_Scannerso anyways, I'll idle and be back on later. I can get in real deep shit with JS. [00:46]
baithis is one of those weird problems that spans both worlds
excellent
[00:46]
A_ScannerSounds like a juicy problem. Looking forward to the write up. [00:48]
SketchCowbai: You're invited to edit
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FHmn1kO3PGYYCRJejZsZMFk_BxWer_pOaTUANRFroM8/edit?usp=sharing
(That's the view version)
I'm quickly setting up a second machine for screenshotting.

bai: Any time to do it tonight or should it wait [04:22]
..... (idle for 24mn)
A_ScannerI'm baaack..
looking at the google doc
k. Is a good start.
So... stupid question what OS/platform and version do you you use for mame? IE.. what type of vm should I use to compile mame and is there a preferred branch/revision etc that I should use as source?
[04:46]
baiSketchCow: I'll fill in some stuff tonight, harass me if I don't :D [04:56]
A_ScannerI take it http://www.mess.org/compiling_mess is up to date? I'll get that set up in the morning. [04:57]
baiA_Scanner: I normally use a linux system to compile, ubuntu is my personal preference but whatever you're most familiar with, as long as it's new enough, should work [04:58]
A_Scannerbai: cool. I'll just pop a vm up just for this to keep things neat and tidy. [04:58]
baithe compile instructions for the web version are a bit different - those instructions are for building a native build
but you probably want to go through that process once first anyway just to make sure you get all the prerequisites to building
[04:59]
A_ScannerOk cool. Is the web stuff documented someplace? [05:00]
baiplus you need a native build to get information to build the stripped-down web builds, anyway
let me see if I can find official docs. we used to have a complicated custom build process, but now it's been built in to MAME's normal build process
[05:00]
A_Scannerright-O! Yay, checkpoint to make progress. I've got to get some sleep for a while but I'll work on this midmorning. [05:02]
baihttps://github.com/mamedev/mame/blob/1bcb694f8d7db37e03f07c080edcded5fb22f554/docs/source/initialsetup/compilingmame.rst#emscripten-javascript-and-html [05:02]

SketchCowDFJustin: https://archive.org/details/a8b_scat_217 - any idea why that dies
Ignore, it's some cookieish
[05:21]
Well, this has been a frustrating screenshot night
Getting the atari screenshotting to work, huge pain in the ass, no reason.
But sounds like we're getting some MAME work done, that's great

A_ScannerI'm just getting a new vm installed to use for this. I found out that virtual box and hypervisor-v really, really don't like each other. [19:55]

A_ScannerBeen compiling for a while. of course needed a few packages to fully compile and as usual... it's an iterative process. I'm currently compiling mame itself. [21:15]
