Getting started with nabu-games

Post by gfroberts »

I'm trying to take the plunge and be able to compile and run these games, as a prelude to being able to build some of my own. struggling a bit to get started.

since these are configured for linux but I normally operate in a Windows environment i thought the least painful path would be to use wsl. i downloaded the latest "nightly" z88dk tarball but it doesn't have executables in the bin directory, and building it has been a challenge. many packages to download and install. i'm currently looking at an error message when installing texinfo...

so now i have a funny feeling i'm doing this the hard way. is there already a linux tree that has everything built? I followed the same steps I did previously to install the windows one, going to nightly.z88dk.org but now I see the instructions point me to sourceforge? when i previously tried to use the sourceforge image when i was setting up a windows environment i found it didn't have the lib/config.nabu.cfg information.

sorry for the newbie question.. thanks for any help you can provide...

Download the nightly build. Not the source. My entire GitHub repo is setup for windows. Good description and details on the main page if nabulib repo

Ok thanks. I’ve already got the Windows development environment working so I’ll just look at the makefile and make any changes needed to work in windows

Because it’s windows I have bat files

If it’s installed c:\z88dk it’ll just work
