- game plugin fix-ups
- DevIL Cross-platform image loading and manipulation toolkit
- enet Thin network communication layer on top of UDP
- GLEW OpenGL Extension Wrangler Library
- SDL2 Cross-platform low-level I/O access
Install the dependencies on Linux:
sudo apt install libdevil-dev libenet-dev libglew-dev libsdl2-dev
vcpkg install devil enet glew sdl2
We use CMake as the cross-platform build system.
Building on Linux:
git checkout https://github.com/Mindwerks/XLEngine.git mkdir build; cd build; cmake ../XLEngine; make -j4
Building on Windows:
< Location of vcpkg > with the location where you installed vcpkg)
git checkout https://github.com/Mindwerks/XLEngine.git mkdir build && cd build && cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=< Location of vcpkg >\scripts\buildsystems\vcpkg.cmake ../XLEngine
Game data paths and render settings are specified in XLEngine.conf. On non- Windows systems, it will look for this in the XDG standard directory:
XDG_CONFIG_HOME is unset or empty:
On all systems, it will then search for XLEngine.conf in the process's working directory and use the settings there as overrides.
The available settings are:
[general] width = # window/screen width, 320 minimum height = # window/screen height, 200 minimum fullscreen = # true or false vsync = # true or false emulate-low-res = # true to render at 320x200 and stretch to fit, or false renderer = # opengl, soft32 (true-color software), soft8 (paletted software) [DaggerXL] data-path = # Full path to game data, e.g. C:\DAGGER\ARENA2 [DarkXL] data-path = # ... [BloodXL] data-path = # ... [OutlawsXL] data-path = # ...
Currently the game must be run from where it can find the DarkXL/, DaggerXL/, etc. directories, where the AngelScript (*.as) and image (*.png) files are for the respective games. Just copy the contents of the resources/ directory to your build directory.
