Source Code

The full source code is available here from GitHub:

  • Clone the source: git clone
  • Set up the submodules: git submodule update --init
  • Run Protobuild.exe to generate project files and solutions.
    • If on Linux or Mac, run it with mono: mono Protobuild.exe
  • You can generate solutions for platforms that are not buildable from the current OS with:
    • Windows: .\Protobuild.exe --generate $PLATFORM
    • Linux or Mac: mono Protobuild.exe --generate $PLATFORM
  • Open the solution for your target platform to build the game framework.
  • Open the solution for your development platform for building the pipeline and content tools.

For the prerequisites for building from source, please look at the Requirements file.
