[Fixed] No 32-bit GNU/Linux binaries in 2.4

[Fixed] No 32-bit GNU/Linux binaries in 2.4

Postby cheesysmaster » 13 Aug 2014, 01:57

Not sure if this is already known, but I just downloaded version 2.4 of the linux file at:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/stuntra ... z/download

I was under the impression from the Install wiki that the download contained both 32 bit and 64 bit binaries:
Official archive with precompiled binaries (32 and 64 bit)


And I see that the stuntrally shell script checks whether the system is 32 or 64 bit and points to the appropriate file:
{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
if [ "$(uname -m)" = "x86_64" ]; then
   "$BINPATH/stuntrally_x86_64" $*
else
   "$BINPATH/stuntrally_x86" $*


but the /StuntRally-2.4-linux64/bin/ directory only has the 64 bit executable.

It's a great game (I've played on a Windows machine) and really grateful for the work you put in it! I look forward to 32 bit binaries so I can try it out on my linux machine. :)

Regards.

Hi cheesysmaster,

In this topic, CryHam said that Linux binaries are 64bit only. He did not state the reason though.

Yeah well, this time only 32-bit release.
I'm not the one making GNU/Linux binaries, scrawl does.
He didn't have access to his VM, and could do only the 64-bit binaries.
That's okay for me and not a reason to hold a release for a month or more, when it was ready.

That's true :-)

When scrawl has access to his VM again, it would be nice to release a new tarball with the 32-bit binary too (without having to re-release 2.4, just update the binary tarball).

IMO That's not needed.
You can always compile from sources.
I think the majority has a 64-bit OS anyway.

Well I think there are still lots of people using 32bit OS, even on 64bit capable hardware.
I could probably provide unofficial 32bit binaries if the static build is documented somewhere.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I'm happy to wait for 32 bit tarbell, but it would be nice, because as Akien said, people intentionally run 32 bit OSes sometimes. I'm a big fan of Mepis antiX MX-14, which is 32 bit only. On my systems it performs noticeably better than 64 bit Xubuntu 12.04/14.04 I had on them before. Not sure why its so noticeable, but I don't care if its 32 bit if it performs so well.

BTW, on my Windows box Stunt Rally was getting 60-70 fps with a GeForce 8800GTX @ 1680x1050 High graphics settings. Great visuals and performance. Nice job.
