  65 +1) Installation
  66 +
  67 +On Windows, the installer should take care of everything. To change the
  68 +resolution, you need to use a command line option, see next section. To
  69 +install on Linux, do the following (from the directory this file is in):
  70 +
  71 +./configure
  72 +make
  73 +cp src/warzone data
  74 +
  75 +and then to run the game:
  76 +
  77 +cd data
  78 +./warzone
  79 +
  80 +If the configure/make steps above fail and you have all required libraries
  81 +installed, run "./autogen.sh" and then try again. If it still doesn't work, you
  82 +can try our other build system:
  83 +
  84 +make -f Makefile.raw
  85 +cp src/warzone data
  86 +
  87 +If it still doesn't work, contact us.
  88 +
  89 +After that, you only need the "data" directory. You can move that around as you
  90 +wish, for example:
  91 +
  92 +mv data ~/warzone
  93 +
  94 +To play the game, you have to change to this directory first, so after doing
