Still unsure of what all I have to DL...
« on: February 22, 2006, 03:13:44 pm »

Pardon my ignorance but Im a little unclear on what exactly I download in order to play on windows.  There are alot of links on the DL page, how many do I really need..?

That page is calling for all sorts of stuff I need to cram into my machine before I can partake of space galaxy donination... it just isnt fair.

Basically, if the computer you're installing on has an Internet connection, just download the run the UQM installer. If you don't have an Internet connection on that machine, read the instructions for installing UQM without an Internet connection.

Do I need to download additional source code or any other package?

Tried what, exactly? I assume you've installed UQM using the installer and you're trying to run the program using whatever shortcuts the installer set up.

My best guess based on the error message is that Windows is failing to link UQM to some library it's trying to use; probably OpenGL. Do other OpenGL programs work?

Which operating system are you using? What graphics card do you have?

Again, if you're using the installer, it takes care of downloading and installing packages for you. If not, follow the instructions I gave you. The source code is only necessary for development work; you do not need it to play UQM.

I mean I DLed exactly what you told me to and then tried running the program from my desktop shortcut, just as you assumed.

And as far as system specs, Im using a computer at work to try the program from, I havent yet tried it at my home.  Although I have a feeling that I will have no problems there.

Ill keep you updated and thanks for the reply.

Were you able to run the installer without any errors? I'm not sure if you mean an error is occuring in the installer or in the game exectuable itself.
