These steps will help you configure an ENIGMA setup using the modern MSYS2 project. This setup better facilitates both 32-bit and 64-bit compilation.
- First, you will want to download and install MSYS2 by following these instructions: http://www.msys2.org/
- - NOTE: The x86_64 download button will support compilation of both 32-bit and 64-bit games.
MSYS2 MinGW 64-bitto use the included Pacman to obtain the packages used by ENIGMA for building games, which includes things like OpenAL. You will also need to install Git using Pacman so you can clone the ENIGMA source code from GitHub to complete this installation.
- - NOTE: You do not need to type the entire command below. Both Command Prompt and MSYS2 have a right-click menu option that allows you to just paste the command from this wiki page.
- - NOTE: These packages are for 64 bit, if you want 32 bit then you need to install the same packages but replace
i686in the name of each package.
- - The Pacman command you will need to run is: pacman -S base-devel git mingw-w64-x86_64-toolchain mingw-w64-x86_64-boost mingw-w64-x86_64-protobuf mingw-w64-x86_64-rapidjson mingw-w64-x86_64-openal mingw-w64-x86_64-dumb mingw-w64-x86_64-libvorbis mingw-w64-x86_64-libogg mingw-w64-x86_64-flac mingw-w64-x86_64-mpg123 mingw-w64-x86_64-libsndfile mingw-w64-x86_64-libgme mingw-w64-x86_64-sfml mingw-w64-x86_64-gtk2 mingw-w64-x86_64-zlib mingw-w64-x86_64-libffi mingw-w64-x86_64-box2d mingw-w64-x86_64-bullet mingw-w64-x86_64-glew mingw-w64-x86_64-alure
- Use the change directory command (
cd path/to/directory) to change MSYS2 to the directory you want ENIGMA installed in.
- Then simply run this command:
git clone https://github.com/enigma-dev/enigma-dev.git
- Now simply run
maketo build the compiler and its backend into compileEGMf.dll, which is used by the CLI and any IDE for ENIGMA.
- Optional: You can then run
make emakeif you also intend to use the CLI for building games.
Configure an IDE
- Finally, you will want LateralGM for editing games which you can use by installing Java and then download lateralgm by running
- Once you have LateralGM setup you can simply run it using:
java -jar lateralgm.jar.
- - NOTE: This method of launching LGM using MSYS2 is recommended over double-clicking the jar because the environment will be configured correctly so that it includes MinGW for ENIGMA to find it.
