Source code (This topic is different! I swear!)
« on: March 12, 2006, 02:10:27 pm »

Can any of you tell me how to access and edit the code?
I need to know if I have to download a program or something, and which one.

Urf, I feel like a complete moron now. Undecided

what OS are you running, if it's windows you have 2 choices

MinGW and Visual Studio 6 or VS 2003

heck if i know what they use for macs
and i think linux comes with it's own compilers


for just reading and changing and not compiling you could always use wordpad  Smiley

Would be great if there was some kind of tutorial for compiling this, e.g. in Windows...
Or perhaps just a list of files, which you have to download, apart from the Source-Code itself.

Try reading INSTALL.mingw in the source code. It explains what you need to compile UQM using MinGW on Windows.

The instructions with the source actually assume you've built stuff before. If you haven't I'd start with searching the web for generic instructions on how to compile stuff, in either MinGW or MSVC.

Is it passable to get the source code in C#?

Sure, just download the C++ version and change all C++ dependent codes to C#. Good 3 to 6 months is all it should take working full time on it.
