Topic: Irrlicht v1.7.2 Compatible Mod (2010-12-01)

the mods have been updated to be Irrlicht v1.7.2 compatible.  please see the INSTALL.TXT file with the distro for basic install instructions.

2010_12_01 Irrlicht Mod for Irrlicht v1.7.2/BMAX v1.40

the .a and .dll files have been updated to Irrlicht v1.7.2.

While the examples are included, I am still working on getting them updated.

a few instructions...

for installing the mod:

extract the mod distribution zip file into your mod folder under blitzmax.  this should create an irrlicht.mod folder under your mod folder and then the core.mod folder under that.

for installing the lib and dll files there are now two choices.  a DX9 only version and the regular DX8/DX9 version.  both versions contain OGL:

from the mod distribution:

copy BMAX\mod\irrlicht.mod\lib\win\DX VERSION DIRECTORY\Irrlicht.dll to your windows\system32 folder
copy BMAX\mod\irrlicht.mod\lib\win\DX VERSION DIRECTORY\D3DX81ab.dll to your windows\system32 folder (if using the DX8/DX9 version)

you can download the Irrlicht v1.7.2 MingW DX9/DX8 build at:

IrrDX_v1_7_2 MingW .a and .DLL files

copy libIrrlicht.a to your BMAX\mod\irrlicht.mod\core.mod folder
copy Irrlicht.dll to your windows\system32 folder
copy D3DX81ab.dll to your windows\system32 folder (if using DX8 version)

Mac Intel Binaries for BMAX v1.43+

extract the Mac Intel ZIP and copy the files to the corresponding directories.

NOTE:  i have not yet compiled a distribution for Linux.

MT binaries for the current build.  These are completely untested.  Irrlicht does not have any multithreading support so I'm not sure if these are even going to work for folks.
