Build for Windows
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.
sudo apt-get install mingw32 mingw32-binutils mingw32-runtime
- go to http://www.mingw.org/download.shtml
- 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.
svn export svn://svn.tuxfamily.org/svnroot/xmoto/xmoto/trunk/mingw_dev.zip mv xmoto/mingw_dev.zip ~
unzip ~/mingw_dev.zip mkdir -p include libs bin mv mingw_dev/include/* include mv mingw_dev/libs/* libs mv mingw_dev/bin/* bin rm ~/mingw_dev.zip rmdir mingw_dev
cp /usr/mingw/include/SDL/* /usr/mingw/include
Build from GNU/Linux
tar jxf xmoto-x.y.z.tar.bz2 cd xmoto-x.y.z ./configure_mingw_from_linux.sh make i586-mingw32msvc-strip src/xmoto.exe
Build from Windows
tar jxf xmoto-x.y.z.tar.bz2 cd xmoto-x.y.z ./configure make strip src/xmoto.exe
You can found xmoto.exe into the src dir. To get the dll required to play xmoto :
