Infinity

Infinity is a role-playing game for the Game Boy Color handheld game console, developed by Affinix Software primarily between the years 1999 and 2001. The game is incomplete and should be considered alpha/preview quality. See the Affinix website for the full announcement regarding the project release as well as a downloadable ROM file.

Building

Currently the game only builds on a Windows host. Building the game requires GBDK, TASM, as well as custom build utilities that you'll need to compile.

From within the source tree, run setup.bat from a command prompt:

cd \path\to\infinity\bin
setup

This will create a virtual J: drive pointing to the root of the project and change to it.

Download GBDK 2.1.5 (the .zip file that's in there) and unpack into the root of the project as the directory sdk.

Download and install MinGW if you don't already have it. From a MinGW shell (leave the original command prompt alone, we'll come back to it), patch the GBDK and build the custom build utiltiies:

cd /j
patch -p0 < tools/gbdk_infinity.diff
cd tools/toolchain
make

You can close the MinGW shell now, we won't need it from here on.

Now from the command prompt, build the GBDK library using make.bat:

cd \sdk\gbz80-gb\2-1-5\lib
make.bat

Download TASM 3.2. Unpack and save tasm.exe into the project's bin directory.

You should now have all the tools ready to build the game. Now go run a bunch of commands:

PATH=%PATH%;c:\mingw\bin
cd \resource\eve
itemconv --defs items.ref
copy itemdefs.h ..\..\source\eve
e
d
c
build
cd \resource\ext
build             (press Y at the prompt)
cd \
do

If all goes well, the game will be built as build\j.gb.
