Hi, I would like to know how I can build a Windows Exe from the sourcecode of Hedgewars (head revision). I was able to compile it already under Ubuntu but I have no clue how I can build an Windows Exe :/ My friends are likely to use Windows and I would like to play with them once the latest head revision.
Thanks a lot!

Why not download the ready installation package and give it to your friends? They can download it too (since you're going to play over the internet I supposed they have internet too Smile).

I need to know that too because we want to play a lan party and I have modded the game a bit and I need to compile it for Windows. I have already compiled it for Ubuntu, which worked perfectly.

Thank You!

Why bother decreasing damage in code? There is a scheme option for adjusting damage.
Granted, that doesn't change explosion size, but that was a deliberate consistency choice.
Perhaps that was what was bothering you.
*shrug*
Anyway, the number of options in game schemes seems more than enough to satisfy most players, and avoids the issues of making incompatible clients.

Anyway, if you do do this, please be responsible. Change HEDGEWARS_PROTO_VER from 31 to, oh, 1.

That should avoid colliding with future releases for a long long while.

And BetaNium, the reason the FAQ doesn't describe compiling under windows is that it is a very complex process, unlike the two or three lines to get a build running in linux.

Perhaps someone who uses windows like Smaxx will take the time to make a complete guide with screenshots and links to everything needed, but will probably require more update and maintenance. If you figure out how to do it, feel free to write your own guide.

Or you could just take 15minute and setup an ubuntu dual boot for your game development Wink Smiley
