Dune II - The Maker
A.k.a. D2TM. Is a Dune 2 clone. At this moment the most known/stable version is DEMO4 and DEMO 3.5 which are very old and using Allegro & other libs. I am proud of that project, but it is time to rewrite it and build a game mostly focussing on skirmish and networking gaming.
We try to keep it multi-platform. We test it often on Mac OSX and Ubuntu. Sometimes we test it on Windows (MinGW32 and MSYS).
If you want to know more about the dependencies used, you can read the documentation/tutorials here.
Where is the binary?
There is no binary available, instead you need to compile it yourself. Once we meet our milestones, we will release binaries for all targetted operating systems.
- Check the TODO list.
- Create (or checkout) a feature branch.
- Finished? Submit it as a pull request.
After that you do:
cmake . make
which should deliver a
./d2tm binary file you should be able to execute.
This example is based on Mac OS X, the procedure is probably (somewhat) the same on Linux. For Windows, we have not yet tested this. We also assume you use homebrew.
If you trust us you can also execute the
install_dependencies_osx.sh file which does the stuff below for you
First make sure you have installed cmake.
You will need the following dependencies:
- download SFML binaries for Mac OS X(compatible with clang++) from here
- unpack the package in /tmp, a 'SFML-2.1-osx-clang-universal' is being extracted.
- cd to 'SFML-2.1-osx-clang-universal' directory
- done (you may remove SFML-2.1-osx-clang-universal)
- git clone sfml
- git clone this mac os x specific repo.
git submodule init
git submodule update
- cd /tmp
- git clone Thor
- cd to Thor
- done (you may remove the Thor directory)
Now you are ready to compile d2tm.
brew install boost
Thus far the following controls work:
q to quit anytime.
Move camera around with arrow keys or with mouse hitting borders of screen.
Right mouse click deselects all unit. Left mouse click selects a unit. Hold left mouse button and drag a rectangle over units to select them.
What is left to do?
We use a public Trello board to keep a list of things todo. You can also see here what we're working on right now and what has been finished. If you feel like contributing, please let us know so we can move the story to 'doing' , and refer to your feature branch in the meantime.
