Having trouble with nml makefiles

Post by Olympus593 »

Hi there, hope someone can help me. I'm trying to make a grf using multiple .pnml files to make the job of coding a lot easier. However, I keep getting this error whenever I run make

Code: Select all

make: Circular PNR-Trains.nml <- PNR-Trains.nml dependency dropped.
make: *** No rule to make target 'pnr-trains.grf', needed by 'PNR-Trains.nml'.  Stop.

Did you check upper and lower case? I see it tries to make a 'pnr-trains.grf' from a 'PNR-Trains.nml'
If you checked that, and it's not the problem, then we need more information:
[+] Spoiler
Where did you get the Make files from?
Did you set up the compile environment correctly?
What OS do you have?

I'm on linux. My environment is set properly. The makefiles were from here https://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/ma ... repository

That's the part that I don't get. How does it mess up capitalization when it is supposed to parse those strings from the makefile.conf provided.

so you did use upper case letters in the config?

Yup.


I'm basically modifying the makefile directly now. Solved the capitalization issue but now I have a caching issue?

Code: Select all

make: *** No rule to make target '.nmlcache/gfx/DMU_KIHA_35.png.cache', needed by 'PNR-Trains.nml'.  Stop.
Edit: It does the job of assembling all the indicated .pnml files into a single .nml file but fails to compile the .nml to a grf.
