How to Compile libxayagame in Windows
How to Compile libxayagame
In this tutorial, we'll compile libxayagame for C++ so that we can use it in other tutorials and even in our own games.
Download MSYS2 x86_64 (https://www.msys2.org/) from this link:
Install into default path
C:/msys64 then run MSYS2 MingGW 64-bit (NOT the 32-bit version) from your Start menu.
Update with pacman as follows.
Click the X in the upper-right corner to close the terminal and restart MSYS2 MingGW 64-bit again.
Build & Install libxayagame
Next, run this command to get and run the script that will build libxayagame for you.
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/xaya/XAYA_tutorial_code/master/libxayagame/Compile-scripts/build.sh; ./build.sh
Congratulations! You've just built your own GSP using libxayagame. You can now proceed on to the Hello World in C++ tutorial where we'll put libxayagame to good use!
We update libxayagame periodically. If you wish to update your build, enter the following into the same MSYS2 MingGW 64-bit terminal that you used above.
cd ~/libxayagame git pull make clean ./autogen.sh ./configure make -j2 make install
You're now up-to-date with the latest version!
