Hey there,

I'm a real beginner especially in Python.

I try to install fifeengine on a Win x64 machine using the Fife SDK. I saw that Fife SDK comes with Python 2.7 but I need 3.5+ to run UH.

I checked the Developer Manual but I am still not sure about how I can use a different Python version than the one in the SDK.

Can you please point me to the instructions where I can use a Python 3.5+ version to run the game?

I think we don't have yet an Manuel how to install UH on Windows. To use the git version. At the moment I do think have the big time to write it. But you would like to need compile fife by yourself. I will update the fife sdk this week. The best is that you wait until I'm done. I could create too an UH git version installer.

Hmm ok. Quick question though: can I somehow point the sdk to use a different python version?

If not I'll wait for you to update the doc

Our current build pre-built fife for windows can't create because of errors and lastest fife version would be needed for uh. I must first fix the fife windows compile problem.

Okay i think its fixed. I will tomorrow upload an new fife sdk that need an own installed python.
But is must be 32 bit version we dont have at the moment an 64bit precompiled version for windows.

Ok another noob question: can I have 32 bit version of Python working on a 64 bit windows machine?

Yes. As far as I know 64bit windows can run all 32bit programs.

Feedback would be nice. For the next release of UH and fifengine we plan to release 64 bit version too for Windows.

The sdk will be delayed by one day. I dont had enough time to make it done. Appveyor needs to long time to make builds done.

@LinuxDonald When I install Fife SDK with Python 2, python is present in the fife folder, but when I install the SDK with Python 3 the python folder is not there.

Why not also put python 3 inside the fife SDK?
