Description Vegard Nossum 2008-03-07 11:54:18 EST
Description of problem:

When pressing F4 in the xmoto-edit program, the game itself is not started.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xmoto 0.3.4

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start xmoto-edit
2. Press F2 (save)
3. Press F4 (play)
Actual results:
syntax error : Invalid option "-level"
X-Moto 0.3.4
usage:  xmoto [options]

Expected results:
(xmoto playing the level in question)

Additional info:
There is an option --level which I believe should be passed instead of -level to
Comment 1 Jon Ciesla 2008-03-07 12:43:18 EST
xmoto man page gives the option as -level, not -level.  xmoto-edit is using the
-level flag.  I'll have to test this myself when I get back to my main machine,
with GUI access.

Please test the new patched kawhide build in koji:
Comment 3 Vegard Nossum 2008-03-08 04:12:15 EST
Using xmoto-edit-0.2.4-13.fc9.i386.rpm, xmoto now starts when I press F4.
However, the level is still not playable, because I get only a dialog message:

"Level 'noname' cannot be loaded" [OK]

Note that I did press F2 (Save) before F4 (Play), and the level editor printed this:

"Saving level in Levels/noname.lvl"

And the file is indeed saved to ~/.xmoto/Levels/noname.lvl, but no combination
of absolute path, Levels/ prefix, or .lvl postfix will allow me to play the level.

Unfortunately, I cannot install the .fc9 package for xmoto because this would
require me to upgrade libc as well.
Comment 4 Jon Ciesla 2008-03-08 08:44:33 EST
Crud. I get that too.  Anyway, installing the fc9 xmoto wouldn't likely help.

I took a peek at the upstream site, and it looks like xmoto-edit is officially
deprecated in favor of inksmoto, their inkscape plugin, which looks pretty slick
and supports pretty much everything xmoto-edit does.  I'll be packaging it soon,
and I can even place a link in this bug to a preview to an fc8 rpm if you like.
Sound ok?  I'd rather not spend too much time fixing something that's obsolete.

See the inksmoto review. . . feel free to dl/l the SRPM and build it for
yourself to test.

Comment 6 Jon Ciesla 2008-05-15 16:07:48 EDT
FYI, inksmoto's review was just approved, I'll let you know when it's built and
pushed for f8.
Comment 7 Jon Ciesla 2008-05-16 12:32:57 EDT
inksmoto is built in koji for devel, f9 and f8, and bodhi requests to push made.
Comment 8 Jon Ciesla 2008-06-10 12:44:18 EDT
Followed package EOL procedure.
