FreeFT

Introduction

FreeFT is an open-source, real-time, isometric action game engine inspired by Fallout Tactics, a game from 2001 created by an Australian company, Micro Forte.

Compiled binaries can be downloaded from SourceForge https://sourceforge.net/projects/freeft

Building

To compile Clang 3.7 or newer is recommended. G++ 4.9 or newer can also be used. Following libraries are required as well:

  • libfwk (included as submodule): https://github.com/nadult/libfwk This library also depends on few other libs (SDL2, libogg, libvorbis, freetype2, libpng)

  • zlib, OpenAL, mpg123, libzip:
    these should be available in your distro's package repositories

To build for windows, you have to cross-compile with MinGW. The easiest way is with MXE (http://mxe.cc).
Just make sure to use GCC6 plugin with posix threads (set MXE_GCC_THREADS to posix).

Running

To run this program, resources from original Fallout Tactics are required. You can buy it on GOG or Steam.

FT has to be installed and resources converted with a convert program. After instaling FT just run convert.exe. It might ask you to provide a path to original Fallout Tactics. The conversion shouldn't take more than a few minutes.

To convert resources under linux, you can use this command: ./convert -p "/home/user_name/.wine/drive_c/tactics/" all
