Use Irrlicht with the bullet physics engine

This is mainly collected from other peoples work.

First you must install the irrlicht and bullet frameworks.  I use bullet v2.77
[CODE]cd path/to/bullet
mkdir bullet-build
cd bullet-build
-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/Library/Frameworks -DCMAKE_INSTALL_NAME_DIR=/Library/Frameworks \
make -j4
sudo make install[/CODE]

Irrlicht XCode templates

You can now build Irrlicht as a framework on MacOS X.  You can download a precomputed framework of 1.7.2 here.  To compile your own, download this, and place it in the folder containing the sourecode.  Then, comment out #define _IRR_COMPILE_WITH_JOYSTICK_EVENTS_ in IrrCompileConfig.h  Open the XCode project in the irrlicht-mac-osx-framework-xcodeproject folder.  Once you have have built and installed, XCode templates are available here.

The Irrlicht framework can only be built for ppc and i386

Trying to compile Lincity-NG

I'm trying to compile a 64 bit Lincity-NG for Mac

So far, I've compiled most of the dependencies as 64 bit libs. The only problem is physics physfs, it still depends on carbon (32 bit)

Use an MP3 as a Ringtone on the Motorola Quantico w/o a MicroSD card

These instruction are for MacOS X, but I’m sure they can be made to work with any OS

  • If your sound isn’t already in MP3 format, you can use this to convert it

  • Put your phones bluetooth in discovery mode

  • Set up a new bluetooth device on your computer

  • Choose “no passcode”

  • Browse your Motorola Phone device

  • Open the “16225? folder

  • drag your *.mp3 file to the window
