Compiling messui failing

Recommended Posts

Having an issue compiling messui, hoping for some advice Thanks.

I am unable to create the ui version, get this error:

C:/buildtools/src/mess/scripts/genie.lua:1087: Unsupported value 'messui' for OSD
stack traceback:
[C]: in function 'error'
C:/buildtools/src/mess/scripts/genie.lua:1087: in main chunk
[C]: in upvalue 'builtin_dofile'
[string "premake = { }..."]:67: in function 'dofile'
[string "_WORKING_DIR = os.getcwd()..."]:41: in function '_premake_main'

makefile:665: recipe for target 'build/projects/messui/mess/gmake-mingw64-gcc/Makefile' failed
make: *** [build/projects/messui/mess/gmake-mingw64-gcc/Makefile] Error 1



My make command:

make -j7 TOOLS=1 TARGET=mess OSD=messui PTR64=1


I am using:

windows 7 pro 64bit

mame .161 source

messui .161 source



My MESS batch script:

assoc .py=Python.File

ftype Python.File=C:\buildtools\src\buildtools\vendor\python\python.exe
set PATH=C:\buildtools\vendor\mingw64\bin;C:\buildtools\vendor\mingw64\opt\bin

make -j7 TOOLS=1 TARGET=mess OSD=messui PTR64=1


I can compile MESS fine by removing OSD=messui and I start fresh [wipe then re-create] for each and every build/build attempt.

Hi there :-)


Seems I forgot to include the new files from the scripts folder in the source package.


I've since changed them, but *should* still work.


See attached.



Put into scripts\src\osd folder





Let me know how you go.
