Look at the FAQ. It tells you how to compile from source which is what you have downloaded (you have the latest not the source on the download page.) But I have been told that compiling is hard on windows. Of course you could just install linux and compile it from that Smile

What type of trouble?
Installing Ubuntu? Or compiling Hedgewars?

Windows:
Just download the 3 files from the top of the IRC. Open the game rar in a new folder, I just did it in my Download folder, extract the patch and drivers to the bin folder, in the new folder.

I then just copied the whole thing to a flash drive and I take it with me, and play it from the flash drive on other people's computers to try and get them to play.

But when I compile in Ubunte, do I get the files (.exe's) that can run on Wondiws?

No, you would need to compile it a widows machine to get that.
