So i downloaded the master copy of the game from github, (I'm trying to get empyrean) and the instructions say to build an executable, which I have no idea how to do. Help?
Which operating system are you using?
Sine building on Window is a pain and you only seem interested in playing, here's a build I made that includes the Empyrean mod by default: https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B1BVtHygCIkWbjlEdk5wMWhET1U&export=download
Awesome, thank you so much! I spent ages yesterday trying to make it work but got nowhere :/
I might want to make a new thread, but I'm also having issues trying to build an executable: I'm getting the following cmake error:
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:66 (Message): Couldn't find SDL2 development files. On Debian-based systems (such as Ubuntu) you should install the 'libsdl2-dev' package.
OS: Windows 10 x64
I can provide more info as requested.
How would I build an executable for raspbian debian jessie OS?
How do you build an executable on Windows? I have cmake and the master file but no skill! Haha I am no good at coding / scripting / programing; I am more for the design, story, art and concept side.
Okay so to explain the basics to the non-programmers in the thread. Basically, an executable is a binary file the computer can understand. However, humans write source code using numbers and letters in various languages, such as C++, C#, etc. The computer cannot understand this source code, so we use something called a compiler to turn source code into a binary file (the executable) that the computer can understand.
So when you download the source code for a program off of github, you need to have a compiler that understands that source code and can turn it into a binary. Once you know which language you are working with it should be fairly easy to find a compiler that works.
Okay I have asked Clint for help. I am really bad at programming.
It is like I have a -100 Programming / Scripting / Coding debuff on myself. That is a pretty nerdy way to put it but I do feel that Coding / Scripting / Programming has always been an uphill battle for myself:-P.
TheBlackSword it is so frustrating to suck at something so crucial in game developement. It is like being a being a Labrador / Husky cross dog where I run to water yet cannot swim!
