So does it compile fine on linux? Just not windows? I don't think I tried compiling it on linux yet but was interested in making some updates to it..

Supposedly, compiling on Linux is fairly easy.

I just compiled it a few days ago. Not hard at all.

I've never compiled it not on Linux, so you should be fine. It worked for me with my distribution's packages for the dependencies. Let me know how it works out for you.

Additionally, if you're downstream from Debian (or at least Ubuntu), these instructions from Jer still work:

How to Download, Compile and Run Gonstruct in Ubuntu
(Tested on Ubuntu 11.04 but it should work for older versions as well)

Before you start:

1. Enable the Universe Repository (if it isn't already):
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu

2. Open a Terminal and Run:
sudo apt-get update

Now that you've enabled the universe repository and updated your sources:

1. Open a Terminal

2. Install Git:
sudo apt-get install git

If you get an error saying the package is obsolete or not found try the following instead:
sudo apt-get install git-core

3. Clone the Git repository locally:
git clone git://github.com/fry/graal-gonstruct.git

4. Change to the Git Repository folder:
cd graal-gonstruct

Terminal Tip! If you press TAB it will auto-complete filenames or directories for you. If you type: cd gr and then press TAB it should auto-complete it to: cd graal-gonstruct

5. Git Checkout Gonstruct:
git checkout

6. Install Gonstruct's dependencies:
sudo apt-get install libglew1.5-dev libgtkmm-2.4-dev libgtksourceview2.0-dev libgtkgl2.0-dev libboost-dev libboost-filesystem-dev ruby cmake

7. Generate the makefiles:
cmake .

8. Run the makefile:
make

9. Run Gonstruct:
src/level_editor/gonstruct

Upon running Gonstruct you'll be prompted to configure Gonstruct and after configuring you'll see the main Gonstruct window.

The Gonstruct binary/executable is located in ~/graal-gonstruct/src/level_editor/gonstruct so you can just create a link to it or copy it to wherever you want to run it from.

If you encounter an error please copy and paste the message you received in the terminal, and the output of cmake as well.

Thanks for posting those again!

Note that if you do the git checkout 0.2.3 step you are gonna miss out on the few commits that happened since then.

Also it is somewhat embarassing that we're still depending on ruby. Since cmake requires having python available anyway, it is probably worth considering replacing src/level_editor/make_images.rb with a python script. This probably has come up before and was snidely dismissed because I like ruby, oh well.

If someone is going to work on Gonstruct, it should be noted that these are the most important bugs/improvements:
  • Dragging the tileset slider causes the entire tileset to draw over the level until the slider is released.
  • No right-click tile flood fill when having multiple tiles selected.
  • Ctrl+Z does not restore deleted layers.
  • Unknown reason(s) causes some gmap levels to crash the client.
  • If you accidentally right click to flood fill outside of the level boundries, the client crashes.
  • The ability to zoom out on gmaps would be fantastic.
  • Wrong settings can cause the client not to start until you remove them from AppData.
  • If done properly, having layers displayed in their own layer section (PhotoShop/PaintShopPro style) could be an improvement. If not done right, the current way they work is just fine.
  • Not sure if this is a bug or just poor implementation, but selecting tiles on a layer > Ctrl+C > navigate to another layer > unselect the tiles causes them to be moved from the original layer to the current layer. Would be nice with a better way of handing that, because it's a great feature.
  • If a tileset image is updated while having Gonstruct opened, it would be nice if the level would redraw.

That's all I could come up with for now.

Also not sure for the cause of this, but I was working with Gonstruct last week or so, and while a level worked fine when I first uploaded it, when I updated it again, removing some of the previously laid tiles, the entire level blocked the client. I was unable to fix this, and yeah.. like I said, don't know what caused it. Should note that this happened with multiple levels.

Not an issue with Gonstruct.

The first time you enter a level every session, all of it's surrounding levels on a gmap is completely covered in blocking tiles that won't dissapear until the level is updated. It creates some very inconvenient problems for non-staff players.

@Stefan, check it out yourself on Maloria at mal.gmap.

In the next version the tile 4095 cannot be used in upper tile layers anymore.
If it wasn't that issue, my past experience with Gonstruct and layers tells me you filled one of your layers with a transparent (blocking) tile while thinking that filling it with a transparent tile would "delete" it.

If I knew c++/C# or whatever Gonstruct was made in I'd be happy to work on it

I always wanted to look into simply translating levels from the Tiled format into graal levels. You could also very easily support gmaps (e.g. create a 640x640 Tiled map and then translate it into a 10x10 gmap).

It obviously wouldn't support npcs or anything, but it's a great editor that has a lot of support.

edit: was just reading their site: "Supports input/output plugins to open and save files in custom formats"...might be worth-while to look into!

The graal level format is dead simple so you should have no trouble with this at all.

Meh, I'm not a big fan of Tiled. I use it(especially for my Java projects) but I feel as far as editing levels Graal Editors(and Gonstruct) is far superior to use.

I agree. I wrote custom plugins for the game I'm working on outside of Graal for Tiled, but it just doesn't match Gonstruct or even the Graal Editor.
