Hi,

I need a volunteer to create an instructions for newcomer programmers on how to get started. We would put that text on the website and it will save us time to retype it everytime.

Anyone volunteers? Post your text here, so everyone can review it and fix any issues.

Here is the first shot:

1. Contact admin to make you a recruit.
2. Read through the forums on http://www.xcomufo.com/forums
3. Read through the programming mailing list.
4. Download OGRE from http://www.ogre3d.org/ and compile it.
5. Create environment variable %OGRE% and point it to <more info later>.
6. Extract the latest version of Xenocide from CVS at http://www.SourceFor...ojects/xenocide.
7. Create environment variable %XENOCIDE% and point to the directory where you extracted Xenocide files from CVS.
8. Use Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 to compile OGRE and Xenocide.
9. Enjoy.

One very important thing to add for step 6: (from someone who just went through it :) )

Follow these instructions:
http://www.xcomufo.c...?showtopic=2859

BUT,

for the CVSROOT string:

:pserver:anonymous@cvs.xenocide.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/xenocide/

There should NOT be a slash on the end, so we should actually use:

:pserver:anonymous@cvs.xenocide.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/xenocide

Then everything will work well with CVS.

This information is kinda vague, could someone post a more specific example of how to set up the VS.net project, stuff like that? It would really help me, and I'm sure others as well.

The VS.Net projects is already setted up for you. You just have to download the devpack.net2003 module from the CVS and the dependencies pack from:

http://www.projectxe...ack.net2003.zip

Decompress it and there you go.

the solution is on devpack.net2003\compiler
