Request: How to compile Doombuilder 2 ?

Post by NeoHippo » Wed Dec 07, 2011 8:48

Since I am not all that knowledgeable about compiling a program, I wonder if somebody
could make a step by step tutorial for the compilation process for Doombuilder 2.
Preferably for the Windows environment.

The .\trunk\MakeRelease.bat program compiles the 'official' build for you, but, however, you must have to listed prerequisite programs before continuing. Otherwise, that tool does everything for you to compile the 'official' build. Furthermore, I have been playing and mostly accepting the idea of making another batch program available for compiling the defined plug-ins. But, I have yet to create such a program for the time being.

In the other topic Update DB2!! I saw this

Code: Select all

ECHO.     This build script requires the following software to be installed:
ECHO.       - Subversion command-line client
ECHO.       - Microsoft Visual Studio 2008
ECHO.       - Microsoft HTML Help compiler
ECHO.       - Inno Setup 5

Could someone provide links to these programs ?
Is that Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 or Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Express ?

Is there a WIKI or something similar, which outlines the step by step procedure of compiling the SVN into a usable exe file ?

I don't mean to sound like a complete asshole, but google it. That is how I retrieved the HTML workshop and Inno Setup.

Express I believe will do just fine. I think the former is expensive as opposed to the latter which is free, but I could be wrong.
