help with a lazarus project (solved)
« on: November 19, 2022, 11:29:44 pm »
hey all.
the project located here
https://github.com/derekjohnevans/Geep-Jeez
seems to be abandoned.
in the past it used to compiled ok.
in some point with new lazarus versions, i get warning/error messages.
I know nothing about lazarus.
I wonder if someone can help fixing this ?

btw: the talent programmer of this project was a user here..

thanks in advanced.

I did a test what's the problem.

I get an error that only static methods and static variables can be referenced through an object type.

I'm quite sure this is a new behave, because the same code used to compile in old lazarus versions.

my question is, what can be done to fix this ?

maybe an option to revert back to old behavior ?

What makes you think this is new behaviour? What version of Lazarus etc. have you tried it with, on what platform? What version have you seen it working with?

With respect to the original author (whose website now appears to redirect to porn), what reason do you have to believe it ever worked, or at least was abandoned in a working state?

It's not a believe.
I did dome work on it, and build it successfuly
some years ago.

the site doesn't work anymore.
the talent programmer is a member  of this forum.
you can still find some activity on sourceforge.
on other projects.

any answer to the topic ?

Yep, that was one of my projects. The github code is out of date. The installer for v2.9 also contains the source code.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/geep-jeez/files/

I believe I left the project is a fully working state and suitable for all my needs, but its been 7 years. I just downloaded the installer on my last Windows 7 machine, and it still runs. I'm sure with the right version of TDM-GCC installed, the system would work as it should. I do recall being able to compile all Jesus Script effects at that time, but I'm sure JS has evolved.

There was some work done on a LADSPA interface (Linux Audio Developer's Simple Plugin) as well, which at the least achieved the generation of at least one working plugin for Audacity under Linux. But, since I didn't need it, no more work was done.

I do recall issues with making sure a specific version of TDM-GCC was used. But, that could have been due to me using Windows XP at the time.

Anyway, you are more that welcome to do as you please with the code. I wrote it for myself, so I could knock up VST's quickly. I'm not sure such a program is needed anymore. But, at the time I thought it was cool.

I guess, these days I'd either stick with JS or LUA to prototype audio effects, then re-code in C++.

But, its there if you so wish to play with it. Cheers.

Thank you very much for this reply.
First let me say a big thank you
For all the effects code you shared.
I use them often.

As i said in the post above,
The problem is with the source code compilating.
I get errors from freepascal
About none static methods been used with object types.
In the past this code was compiled with no problems.

I think something in freepascal behave has changed.

Why not show errors instead of saying that you get errors.
When helpful people see what happen on your system a better response can be achieved.

I do not see any code or any error message at that link. Best of luck  :-*

Seconded. For somebody who claims to have no Lazarus knowledge to start talking about having tried to build something, decline to give details on the Lazarus/FPC version he's using and the precise platform, and then refuse to give the precise error messages etc. that he's getting when asked to do so by somebody who does have significant experience... well, it's unusual and hardly conducive to people wanting to help him.

Do you see the words 'object type' ?
The whole sentence is the error message.

only static methods and static variables can be referenced through an object type.

I would be apperciate if someone will download the project
https://github.com/derekjohnevans/Geep-Jeez
Or from here as it is more uptodate
https://sourceforge.net/projects/geep-jeez/files/
and try to build it.

I'm with lazarus 64 bit from few days ago,
On windws 11 64 bit

Thanks in advanced

Ok, So I bit...

I downloaded it and corrected the problem.

It compiles fine here on my laz 2.0.4/ 3.0.4FPC

what is this program supposed to do? I don't get it although it does look nice. ;)

Thank you very very much sir.
I apperciate this.

The app suppose to take an audio effect script
And create a vst plugin that can be used
In any app that can host it,
Like cubase, fl studio, ...
The script is written in eel fx script,
Which developed by cockos
The creator of reaper daw.

How can i download your fixes ?
