PROBLEM: Using MinGW I am able to compile OpenTTD 1.8.0, but 1.9.0 fails in both nightly and beta:
There may be a problem with the required packages. Did a package change or was a new package introduced?
I went to the Compiling section of the OpenTTD Development page to review the libraries.
This page has the following note:
That wiki page is titled Coding Tools. On March 17 it was deleted by andythenorth with the comment "(Strongly outdated, no need to keep)". There was no suggestion for an alternate source for instructions on how to properly set up a system to build OpenTTD nor any discussion concerning development environments.For further instructions on how to properly set up your system to build OpenTTD, take a look at our wiki page about development environments.
So, now I must question the validity of the library list with respect to MinGW. Is the page Compiling on Windows using MinGW still valid?
Are the libraries the source of my problem?
