README ====== Kexx2 is a top down scrolling shoot'em up, similar to Raptor and Tyrian. The project web page is at: http://www.haeggblad.com/kexx2 and the source code is hosted at: http://github.com/octol/kexx2 DISCLAIMER: Most of the code is from 2000-2001 and in an old C++ style (C with classes). Game controls ============= Player 1: Movement: Arrow keys. Main weapon: Right Ctrl. Extra weapon: Right Shift. Player 2: Movement: w, a, s, d keys Main weapon: Left Shift. Extra weapon: Left Ctrl. Installation ============ Windows ------- Just download one of the pre-compiled binaries from the web page. These are in zip format, containing a binary, data files and some documentation. After uncompressing, the game is started by running kexx2.exe. There is no need to run any installer. Linux and OSX (and any other OS) -------------------------------- For these platforms you need to build the game from source. See below. Building from source ====================== Requirements ------------ Building the source code requires a C++11 compiler, such as gcc-4.8, and depends on the following libraries: - Boost::filesystem - Boost::system - Boost::program_options - SDL 1.2 - SDL_mixer - SDL_image - libsdlc Building -------- So far I've only tried building the source in a GNU/Linux environment. Currently Kexx2 uses Autotools, and thus it should be fairly straightforward to build. ./configure (check for compilation dependencies) make (compile) make install (optional) Running `make' should produce an executable `kexx2' in the src/ sub directory, which `make install' then copies to the system (/usr/local/bin/). Data files are installed to /usr/local/share/kexx2. The location of these can be configured by appending a suitable flag to the configure script. Building the source from a git repository ----------------------------------------- If the source code has been obtained from the git repository on GitHub an additional step before `./configure' is needed to produce the necessary build files. To generate these run autoreconf -ivf Building for Windows -------------------- Windows binaries can be obtained by cross compiling using the mingw compiler. This is most easily done by setting up the build environment using MXE (http://mxe.cc). From their intro it is as simple as git clone -b stable https://github.com/mxe/mxe.git cd mxe make gcc sdl sdl_mixer sdl_image After this it should be as simple as running ./cross-configure.sh and then ./cross-make.sh. Depending on where you setup the MXE environment you might need to edit these to scripts to contain the correct $PATH.
