This is a continuation of the original Unreal Tournament engine. It is based on several parts from different sources:
- The partial source code release to version 432: http://unreal.epicgames.com/ (site offline)
- The OpenUT project: http://openut.sourceforge.net/
- Chris Dohnal's work on OpenGLDrv and D3D9Drv: http://www.cwdohnal.com/utglr/
- Original work done here.
This means that what you will find here is not the complete source code to the Unreal Tournament engine. Only some very specific parts have been open-sourced. However, there is plenty to improve on.
The goal is to get Unreal Tournament running smoothly on modern systems.
For now, this project is codenamed Surreal.
Building on Windows
Make sure you have the Windows and DirectX SDKs installed. Also either opt to install the Visual Studio C compilers during the Windows SDK install, or use the compilers from an existing install of Visual Studio.
TODO: Describe how to install GYP on Windows.
Roughly, you will then want to generate the project files and build them. To get any meaningful result, make sure you're building the Release configuration. On the command line, this would look as follows:
gyp --depth=. msbuild surreal.sln /p:Configuration=Release
Building on other platforms is currently not possible. Care has been taken to make as much of the source compile on Linux and Mac OS X, but there are no compatible binaries to link to.
