Since xmoto 0.2.5, Visual Studio c++ is no more required. You can build X-Moto from free software. You can build xmoto.exe from windows or even from GNU/Linux with cross-compilation.

This howto has been made under Ubuntu, but it's easy to adapt it to your distribution.


Install mingw

Under linux

sudo apt-get install mingw32 mingw32-binutils mingw32-runtime

Under windows

  • go to
  • get MSYS-1.0.10.exe and MinGW-5.0.0.exe or newer
  • install MSYS (for this tutorial, i let the default path, c:\msys\1.0) - answer to the questions
Do you wish to continue with the post install ? y
Do you have MinGW installed ? n
  • install MinGW
Let the default mirror and the default options (mingw package = current)
Check g++ compiler and MingGW Make
Destination folder : c:\msys\1.0\mingw (the folder alreay exists)

Install libs headers and objects

The required files to compile are available on internet on the website of each library. However, to make it easier, a pack is available on the xmoto cvs.

cvs -z3 export -r HEAD xmoto/
mv xmoto/ ~
cd /usr/i586-mingw32msvc
unzip ~/
rm ~/

Build from GNU/Linux

tar jxf xmoto-x.y.z.tar.bz2
cd xmoto-x.y.z
i586-mingw32msvc-strip src/xmoto.exe

You can found xmoto.exe into the src dir. To get the dll required to play xmoto :

cvs -z3 export -r HEAD xmoto/

Build from Windows
