There are a few reasons they don't want the binaries scattered (as I understand it):
  1. They don't want it to be windows only
  2. They want people to use the latest version only - although there will be no more public releases :( "So many people are still using 1.2.1 when 1.9.9 is done, and then asking questions that the newest benzin would explain."
  3. If you're capable of using it then you should be capable of compiling it.
  4. I guess the point above serves as a test/gateway to prevent dumb questions :)

I'm sure he does keep his own binary! His binary is much better than our binary :(

There's some old discussion here, including some a couple of responses from megazig himself: old wadder

He seems like a decent guy, I don't necessarily agree with all of his ideals, but I respect them. The world would be rubbish if everyone were the same :) Finally, it's his code and we're lucky he's shared so much, so I'll always be grateful.

Post Re: Benzin Binary (Keep up to date)
Does anybody know how to get the new cygwin to work. All the old hackers compiled this no prob. I have cygwin 1.7, mxml-2.5 tried 2.6, and the new source code for benzin. I've been through the whole process and the furthest I got was bunk benzin.exe that didn't work, plus no bats. Is there an easier way??? It sounds like you need older software to compile properly, but the senior hackers just crap on us for not getting it. Can somebody please e-mail me the files or something!!! I'm going crazy

Here's the cygwin1.dll that works for me:
Attachment:
cygwin1.zip [707.48 KiB]

Also, I thought I sent you this link yesterday?
http://www.wadder.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2204

You won't get any .bats from the compile.

Also, if you're interested in compiling this yourself and need help then you need to be more specific than, "it won't compile", or "the benzin.exe doesn't work".

did you run it from the command line, or just double click? if you double clicked, your method is bunk, not the app.

Post Re: Benzin Binary (Keep up to date)
Thanx for the reply. Following the tutorials with the newer cygwin and mxml 2.5, I can cd /mxml-2.5/ into the mxml fine, but when I type ./configure , nothing happens
I tried the command it states is neccesary on the cygwin home page to account for the mounts being file based now, and it still won't work. Yesterday I changed paths and played around for hours and finally got through the tutorial, but it crapped out while making benzin. "lmxml" not found - it had a really long file path and I don't know if that has something to do with it. i686 something or other. I'm doing it normal, no debian. On the Benzin page I found that I needed to get libmxml-dev, I don't know exactly what to do with all the files or if they are needed, but I manually put them in the corresponding folders and it completed make process. But, when I click benzin.exe inside the bin folder of cygwin it just flashes. Won't let me get to command prompt???
I am highly interested in figuring this all out, super excited if you want to help. I would also like to know how to get the .bats! Any further assistance is greatly appreciated!

And a

Wow, Jacol
I just saw that, you mean I have to use the command promt of cygwin to execute benzin??? I tried the commands on the wiki page and nothing happened. Now I think I just had a brain fart. So what exactly do I type to make it work in the cygwin prompt.
And I would still love to get my hands on those bats. All the tutorials make it sound as if Benzin would have it's own prompt screen- at least I thought.
Bats anybody?? Please
I'm great with windows, new to all this, but I'm really getting into making themes, those 32 frame channels are the bomb.
Anyways thank you both for helping a windows savvy, apparently linux retarded for the moment hacker figure this out

The bats are in the link I posted at old wadder.

Here they are again again:
brl2xml
Code:
for %%x in (*.brlyt) do start benzin r "%%x" "%%~nx".xmlyt
for %%x in (*.brlan) do start benzin r "%%x" "%%~nx".xmlan
rem pause


xml2brl
Code:
for %%x in (*.xmlyt) do start benzin m "%%x" "%%~nx".brlyt
for %%x in (*.xmlan) do start benzin m "%%x" "%%~nx".brlan
rem pause


These will only work under windows though. Place benzin.exe, cygwin1.dll, the bat files and your brls in the same folder and double click the batch file.

If you wanted to run it without the batch files you will need to:
Put everything in one folder
Open cmd
change dir to where benzin.exe is
type something like:
benzin r banner.brlyt banner.xmlyt

Once you have benzin.exe you DO NOT need to do anything with the cygwin terminal.

As Jacol said with command line apps you can't just double click.

basics:
Start | Run... | cmd | {Enter} | drag benzin.exe to cmd window | {Enter}

Then follow the usage it gives you.
