From the official website at http://www.secretmaryo.org:
Secret Maryo Chronicles is an Open Source two-dimensional platform game with a design similar to classic computer games. SMC has computer support to a great degree by using an accelerated Open Graphics Library for the best possible graphic design and stock performance.
It features a wealth of levels, powerups, great music and much more — see http://www.secretmaryo.org/index.php?page=about for a more comprehensive list. And for those still not getting enough, it provides a great in-game level editor.
This repository contains my (@Quintus) fork of SMC, because upstream development at https://github.com/FluXy/SMC seems to have more or less stalled and I’ve been missing some features, most notably the often requested scripting functionality for SMC. The final goal hover still is to merge my changes with upstream.
Yes. This repository’s main purpose is to implement scripting with mruby into SMC. While it’s by no means complete yet, some results can already be seen.
A daily-regenerated website with the scripting API documentation is also available.
In contrast to official SMC, I’ve wiped out autohell and converted the build system to CMake. While still not ideal, it is in any way an improvement over the overly-complex autotool mess.
- Git for checking out the repo.
- An internet connection for the Git checkout.
- A Ruby 1.9 or 2.0 installation with
rakein your PATH.
- CEGUI 0.7.9. CEGUI >= 0.8 is not supported yet.
- GNU Gettext.
- The FreeImage library.
- The LibPNG library.
- The SDL main library plus SDL_image and SDL_mixer, all <2.0, which is not supported yet. (Hey, it’s a large codebase and I’m working on it alone!)
- The SDL_ttf library.
- The libPCRE regular expression library.
- The libxml++ library.
% git clone git://github.com/Quintus/SMC.git % cd SMC % git checkout mruby % git submodule init % git submodule update
Execute the following, and read error messages if they appear. Don’t just go on. They have a sense why they are there.
% mkdir smc/build % cd smc/build % cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$PWD/testinstall \ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug .. % make % make install
This will leave you with a complete SMC installation in smc/build/testinstall. Run the program with:
I don’t use Microsoft® Windows®, but thanks to the great guys at
MinGW and those at MXE I’ve
made it (highly experimentally) possible to crosscompile SMC from
Linux to Windows. To securly provide all required libraries I’ve
forked MXE to https://github.com/Quintus/MXE and created a branch
smc-building. You first have to compile MXE in order to compile SMC,
which can easily take a few hours (but you only need to compile MXE
% mkdir ~/smc-building % cd ~/smc-building % git clone git://github.com/Quintus/mxe.git % cd mxe % git checkout smc-building % make -j4 cegui libpng freeimage sdl sdl_image sdl_mixer sdl_ttf libxml++ boost
This will take a few hours.
Now we have to work around a bug in CMAKE that doesn’t find
i686-pc-mingw32-pkg-config, but will only look for
% cd usr/bin % ln -s i686-pc-mingw32-pkg-config pkg-config
And then edit
i686-pc-mingw32-pkg-config with your favourite
editor. Replace the part that says
... exec pkg-config --static "$@"
... exec /usr/bin/pkg-config --static "$@"
Continue with preparing the build:
% cd ~/smc-building % git clone git://github.com/Quintus/SMC.git % cd SMC % git checkout mruby % git submodule init % git submodule update % mkdir smc/crossbuild % cd smc/crossbuild
Edit the toolhain file smc/cmake/toolchain/linux2mingw32.cmake to
point to your MXE installation, which should be ~/smc-building/mxe if
you followed the above steps. For this, ensure the
CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH line is correct:
Now build SMC in smc/crossbuild.
% export PATH=$HOME/smc-building/mxe/usr/bin:$PATH % cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=../cmake/toolchains/linux2mingw32.cmake \ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$PWD/testinstall -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug .. % make % make install
This will give you a Windows SMC installation in the crossbuild/testinstall directory. Copy it to Windows or run it with Wine:
% wine testinstall/bin/smc.exe
As said, this is highly experimental. It may not even build, because I don’t always test the crosscompilation thing.
