POL 099 batch files converted to linux-unix-mac

Post by MetaPhaze » Fri Jun 05, 2015 8:37 pm

I've converted the files:
CleanUp.sh
ECompile.sh
FastCompile.sh
LoopPOL.sh
POL.sh
RealmGen.sh
to scripts compatable with mac / unix / linux / FreeBSD
Let me know where you'd like them to be placed.

Thanks for the contribution! For some reason I though the distro already had those, but maybe I'm confused...

The easiest way to contribute is to send pull requests here: https://github.com/polserver/poldistro/ ... 099/Distro

Alright, after cloning the git repo i see that 099 has a linux script to do everything needed, however the 099 tarball does not.
That's probably where the confusion lies
I've found that every distribution of UO emulator/server is lacking in documentation, organization and structure, so this is not surprising.
This is the only distribution I've yet to see actually run.

We are trying to improve on that. :angel:

The distro has been rotting for some time, as we focused on the core (fixing bugs, performance improvements and mostly making it easier to change in the future). The usual distro contributors have been away; I guess most people prefer to dedicate time to their own shards.

Sometimes people forget that small contributions may add up over time. If you find something odd or incomplete, would be great to receive a pull request in github. ;)

A hint: the source for our docs can be found here: https://github.com/polserver/polserver/ ... com/pol099
They are used for generating the ones you can see in docs.polserver.com.

Anyway, feel free to contribute. Do you have any suggestions on how to make the linux scripts more simple to find?
