Library updates...


Initial Setup

  1. Create the folder that you want impact to be installed into for your game
  2. Move into that folder from the terminal
  3. Issue the command: npm install impact-fork
  4. Copy "tools", "media" and "lib" directories from impact.js into node_modules/impact-fork/game/public (get impact.js here:
  5. Move into the node_modules/impact-fork/ directory (this will be your home directory for your game from now on basically)
  6. Run the command: npm start (you will see some output ending in "app listening on port 8080")
  7. Open a web browser and browse to "http://localhost:8080/"
  8. If you are starting with a fresh copy of impact, you will simply see a black square with the words "It Works!" inside


Periodically, you should check for updates to the library. To do this (and update), just issue the command:

npm update impact-fork
