Problems with VGA PLANETS 4

I downloaded the latest vga planets 4.0 installer program, with a date stamp of
July 2, 2002. My wine tree is the latest CVS as of yesterday. It's my habit
to do a cvs update before every test.
The vga planets installer program worked perfectly. There were some messages
on the screen behind the window, but they weren't important enough to crash
anything. I didn't write those down.
Master ran. I created a new game with 13 game slots. All of my races were
chosen at random and I set up the game universe for an easy game. This is just
a game for testing.
Host ran and created the player trn files. There was an error about
GetCalendarInfoA and it's wide equivelent not being complete in wine. This
didn't cause a crash because I got the same error when I successfully ran host
on that game universe.
When I tried to enter the e-mail information into the host program, for turn
mailing and pickup, the window was displayed and did not respond to any input.
I had to kill the program from another terminal. I'd like to redirect the
debugging messages to vt6 ( an unused terminal ) so that I can read the screen
better, but this isn't in my part of wine right now. I'm not sure if my fpu
code got added to the main tree and I cannot test that until I can clear up the
problem with it not liking my executables.
May you live as long as you wish and age but a single day.
