About

OpenWar is an alternative Warcraft: Orcs & Humans game engine. So unless you have a legal copy of Warcraft: Orcs & Humans (original MS-DOS version required, won't work with the Mac or Demo versions) OpenWar will be pretty useless to you, since it doesn't come with any graphics or sounds itself.

Since OpenWar is a different game engine, not all things will work 100% the same as they did in the original Warcraft, if you want the original unchanged Warcraft experience, you will still have to use the original game.

Disclaimer

OpenWar is not an official Blizzard product, its a Warcraft: Orcs & Humans modification, by Warcraft fans for Warcraft fans. You need a copy of the original Warcraft: Orcs & Humans MS-DOS version to make use of OpenWar. Warcraft is a registered trademark of Blizzard Entertainment.

Build

Use Homebrew or Linuxbrew for building.

brew tap andreas-jonsson/tap
brew install openwar

or the good old fashioned way.

# Start by installing all external dependencies:
# GCC/LLVM/Mingw, Go1.8, Git, SDL2, SDL2_mixer (with Timidity support).

export GOPATH=$HOME                               # Make sure you have a GOPATH set to your Go workspace.
go get github.com/andreas-jonsson/openwar         # Download the project using Go.
cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/andreas-jonsson/openwar
go build openwar.go                               # Build or run OpenWar.
