Because Magnesium has so many dependencies, a vcpkg port is provided to automatically acquire and build all necessary components. Simply clone the Black Sphere Studios vcpkg fork (or merge its changes into your own vcpkg fork), run
.\bootstrap-vcpkg.bat and then
.\vcpkg.exe install magnesium:x64-windows (or
magnesium:x86-windows for the 32-bit versions). Magnesium will then be ready to be used by any
vcpkg enabled Visual Studio game project. For more information on vcpkg, check it's readme.
If you would like to build and test the examples, you will need to download the SDK that has the example media files. You can either install the vcpkg version of magnesium and let the Visual Studio project override it, or you can install only magnesium's dependencies:
.\vcpkg.exe install bss-util:x64-windows, planeshader:x64-windows, tinyoal:x64-windows, box2d-bss:x64-windows, luajit:x64-windows, enet:x64-windows. Once these dependencies are installed, the SDK project file will automatically link to them, provided you've enabled vcpkg Visual Studio integration.
