MythGame Release 0.14 There'll be more information here later, but for now: BUILD/CONFIGURATION INSTRUCTIONS -------------------------------- First, you need MythTV to be installed. At the very least, you need MythTV's database stuff setup properly, and libmyth installed. If you don't have that done, don't even bother with this, as it won't work. You will need zlib and zlib-dev, however they're named on your distribution of choice. Ok, on to compiling. Just type 'qmake mythgame.pro' then 'make' in the main distribution directory. Compiling note: If you get an error on building this, that says something about 'mkspecs', then you don't have the QTDIR environment variable set. On debian, this should be set to /usr/share/qt. I hear on mandrake, it's /usr/lib/qt3. You'll need to figure out what it should be on your system, set the variable, and attempt to compile again. If you get any errors about missing references, etc, you most likely don't have one of the required pieces of software installed. Follow this by a 'make install'. It'll put a 'libmythgame.so' plugin in your /usr/local/lib/mythtv/plugins directory. MythGame will also read the mysql.txt settings files used by MythTV, so any changes you made to those will be carried over into this. After compiling and installing, you will need to enter the setup menu from mythfrontend to configure mythgame. You'll probably want to set ROM paths, etc. The first time you run MythGame, it'll search out and insert all games that it finds into its database, so it may seem to take awhile. Later runs should be fairly quick. In the normal text-only selection interface, just navigate around with the arrow keys, and use space/enter to start a game. Hitting 'm' on the game name will take you to a settings dialog, and hitting 'm' on the system name (ie, MAME), will take you to a system setup menu. In the screenshot-based selection menu, just hit tab to switch between navigating the list and the screenshot section. To use the generic PC game stuff, check out the example gamelist.xml file in this directory and modify it/add to it as desired.
