Minetest
============

An InfiniMiner/Minecraft inspired game.

Copyright (c) 2010-2013 Perttu Ahola <celeron55@gmail.com>
and contributors (see source file comments and the version control log)

In case you downloaded the source code:
---------------------------------------
If you downloaded the Minetest Engine source code in which this file is
contained, you probably want to download the minetest_game project too:
  https://github.com/minetest/minetest_game/
See the README.txt in it.

Further documentation
----------------------
- Website: http://minetest.net/
- Wiki: http://wiki.minetest.net/
- Developer wiki: http://dev.minetest.net/
- Forum: http://forum.minetest.net/
- Github: https://github.com/minetest/minetest/
- doc/ directory of source distribution

This game is not finished
--------------------------
- Don't expect it to work as well as a finished game will.
- Please report any bugs. When doing that, debug.txt is useful.

Default Controls
-----------------
- WASD: move
- Space: jump/climb
- Shift: sneak/go down
- Q: drop item
- I: inventory
- Mouse: turn/look
- Mouse left: dig/punch
- Mouse right: place/use
- Mouse wheel: select item
- Esc: pause menu
- T: chat
- Settable in the configuration file, see the section below.

Paths
------
$bin - Compiled binaries
$share - Distributed read-only data
$user - User-created modifiable data

Windows .zip / RUN_IN_PLACE source:
$bin = bin
$share = .
$user = .

Linux installed:
$bin = /usr/bin
$share = /usr/share/minetest
$user = ~/.minetest

OS X:
$bin = ?
$share = ?
$user = ~/Library/Application Support/minetest

World directory
----------------
- Worlds can be found as separate folders in:
    $user/worlds/

Configuration file:
-------------------
- Default location:
    $user/minetest.conf
- It is created by Minetest when it is ran the first time.
- A specific file can be specified on the command line:
--config <path-to-file>

Command-line options:
---------------------
- Use --help

Compiling on GNU/Linux:
-----------------------

Install dependencies. Here's an example for Debian/Ubuntu:
$ apt-get install build-essential libirrlicht-dev cmake libbz2-dev libpng12-dev libjpeg8-dev libxxf86vm-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libsqlite3-dev libogg-dev libvorbis-dev libopenal-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libfreetype6-dev

Download source, extract (this is the URL to the latest of source repository, which might not work at all times):
$ wget https://github.com/minetest/minetest/tarball/master -O master.tar.gz
$ tar xf master.tar.gz
$ cd minetest-minetest-286edd4 (or similar)

Download minetest_game (otherwise only the "Minimal development test" game is available)
$ cd games/
$ wget https://github.com/minetest/minetest_game/tarball/master -O minetest_game.tar.gz
$ tar xf minetest_game.tar.gz
$ mv minetest-minetest_game-* minetest_game
$ cd ..

Build a version that runs directly from the source directory:
$ cmake . -DRUN_IN_PLACE=1
$ make -j2

Run it:
$ cd bin
$ ./minetest

- Use cmake . -LH to see all CMake options and their current state
- If you want to install it system-wide (or are making a distribution package), you will want to use -DRUN_IN_PLACE=0
- You can build a bare server or a bare client by specifying -DBUILD_CLIENT=0 or -DBUILD_SERVER=0
- You can select between Release and Debug build by -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=<Debug or Release>
  - Debug build is slower, but gives much more useful output in a debugger
- If you build a bare server, you don't need to have Irrlicht installed. In that case use -DIRRLICHT_SOURCE_DIR=/the/irrlicht/source

Compiling on Windows:
---------------------
- This section is outdated. In addition to what is described here:
  - In addition to minetest, you need to download minetest_game.
  - If you wish to have sound support, you need libogg, libvorbis and libopenal

- You need:
* CMake:
http://www.cmake.org/cmake/resources/software.html
* MinGW or Visual Studio
http://www.mingw.org/
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/default
* Irrlicht SDK 1.7:
http://irrlicht.sourceforge.net/downloads.html
* Zlib headers (zlib125.zip)
http://www.winimage.com/zLibDll/index.html
* Zlib library (zlibwapi.lib and zlibwapi.dll from zlib125dll.zip):
http://www.winimage.com/zLibDll/index.html
* Optional: gettext library and tools:
http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/downlinks/gettext.php
- This is used for other UI languages. Feel free to leave it out.
* And, of course, Minetest:
http://minetest.net/download.php
- Steps:
- Select a directory called DIR hereafter in which you will operate.
- Make sure you have CMake and a compiler installed.
- Download all the other stuff to DIR and extract them into there.
("extract here", not "extract to packagename/")
NOTE: zlib125dll.zip needs to be extracted into zlib125dll
- All those packages contain a nice base directory in them, which
should end up being the direct subdirectories of DIR.
- You will end up with a directory structure like this (+=dir, -=file):
-----------------
+ DIR
- zlib-1.2.5.tar.gz
- zlib125dll.zip
- irrlicht-1.7.1.zip
- 110214175330.zip (or whatever, this is the minetest source)
+ zlib-1.2.5
- zlib.h
+ win32
...
+ zlib125dll
- readme.txt
+ dll32
...
+ irrlicht-1.7.1
+ lib
+ include
...
+ gettext (optional)
+bin
+include
+lib
+ minetest
+ src
+ doc
- CMakeLists.txt
...
-----------------
- Start up the CMake GUI
- Select "Browse Source..." and select DIR/minetest
- Now, if using MSVC:
- Select "Browse Build..." and select DIR/minetest-build
- Else if using MinGW:
- Select "Browse Build..." and select DIR/minetest
- Select "Configure"
- Select your compiler
- It will warn about missing stuff, ignore that at this point. (later don't)
- Make sure the configuration is as follows
(note that the versions may differ for you):
-----------------
BUILD_CLIENT [X]
BUILD_SERVER [ ]
CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE Release
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX DIR/minetest-install
IRRLICHT_SOURCE_DIR DIR/irrlicht-1.7.1
RUN_IN_PLACE [X]
WARN_ALL [ ]
ZLIB_DLL DIR/zlib125dll/dll32/zlibwapi.dll
ZLIB_INCLUDE_DIR DIR/zlib-1.2.5
ZLIB_LIBRARIES DIR/zlib125dll/dll32/zlibwapi.lib
GETTEXT_BIN_DIR DIR/gettext/bin
GETTEXT_INCLUDE_DIR DIR/gettext/include
GETTEXT_LIBRARIES DIR/gettext/lib/intl.lib
GETTEXT_MSGFMT DIR/gettext/bin/msgfmt
-----------------
- Hit "Configure"
- Hit "Configure" once again 8)
- If something is still coloured red, you have a problem.
- Hit "Generate"
If using MSVC:
- Open the generated minetest.sln
- The project defaults to the "Debug" configuration. Make very sure to
select "Release", unless you want to debug some stuff (it's slower
and might not even work at all)
- Build the ALL_BUILD project
- Build the INSTALL project
- You should now have a working game with the executable in
DIR/minetest-install/bin/minetest.exe
- Additionally you may create a zip package by building the PACKAGE
project.
If using MinGW:
- Using the command line, browse to the build directory and run 'make'
(or mingw32-make or whatever it happens to be)
- You may need to copy some of the downloaded DLLs into bin/, see what
running the produced executable tells you it doesn't have.
- You should now have a working game with the executable in
DIR/minetest/bin/minetest.exe

Windows releases of minetest are built using a bat script like this:
--------------------------------------------------------------------

set sourcedir=%CD%
set installpath="C:\tmp\minetest_install"
set irrlichtpath="C:\tmp\irrlicht-1.7.2"

set builddir=%sourcedir%\bvc10
mkdir %builddir%
pushd %builddir%
cmake %sourcedir% -G "Visual Studio 10" -DIRRLICHT_SOURCE_DIR=%irrlichtpath% -DRUN_IN_PLACE=1 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=%installpath%
if %errorlevel% neq 0 goto fail
"C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\MSBuild.exe" ALL_BUILD.vcxproj /p:Configuration=Release
if %errorlevel% neq 0 goto fail
"C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\MSBuild.exe" INSTALL.vcxproj /p:Configuration=Release

popd
echo Finished.
exit /b 0
