Sorry; for some reason, I missed your question.

That package installs fine here, though I am on 13.04. Make sure you're on a 64-bit system, and have Universe enabled as a package source.

If you find a different cross-compiler package, that's fine, as long as the binary names are the same or you update them in the configuration file (Compilers/Linux/MinGW*.ey).

Thanks Josh

I take it regardless of the Mingw64 package that any of these wont run on 32bit machine even in 32bit mode? 

Thanks
Joe

MinGW64 should offer an -m32 flag like the rest of the GNU compilers. But you'll need the 32-bit libraries, and I'm not sure if they're included. Obtaining 32-bit native libraries is a chore; obtaining cross-compiler libraries is a huge chore; I can't imagine obtaining the 32-bit cross-compiler libraries. Good luck. ;)

JoshDreamland, we will eventually work this out the correct way wont we? I mean is that not kind of the point of ENIGMA, build games and they run anywhere? :P

Thanks Josh

I will wait till I get my 64bit machine, see if Santa will hook me up.  lol

Thanks for your help.

If your current machine is 32-bit, then any version of MinGW64 will come with all the correct settings and libraries to build for 32-bit. You should be all set.

Robert: My plan for ENIGMA is "build anywhere, run wherever you build." The best I intend to offer is a distribution mechanism which builds your game for each platform, for you.

Ok Josh, but if a dinkhole like Greg can make this cross compiler, I mean, yah :P

With a bit of hacking, I was able to get Mingw-w64 cross-compiling Windows binaries on Linux. Et voila:

OpenAL seems to be working just fine; the only issue I ran into is that mp3 support is disabled (and mp3s crash the game). I'll be looking into this; I think I just compiled OpenAL with the wrong feature set. But WAVs work just fine, so I'm pretty optimistic.

Unfortunately, a lot of "mingw-lib" packages are missing from Ubuntu, so I had to locally install them myself. This is kind of a pain for the average developer ---I only did it because mingw-32bit on Windows can't actually compile Iji (it's too big).

This is great! GameMaker: Studio beat us to it though. While they may say the contrary on the YoYoGames System Requirements page ...

You can technically compile just dandy without a single computer running linux. Trying to "compile" may throw an error saying "Can't connect to Ubuntu" but the files are still outputed anyways and they worked just fine after I sent them to my virtual machine. Since they've done a pretty spotless job at maintaining their Ubuntu export there's really no difference between that and a Windows export in terms of how your games should run. Unless you happen to really like Linux, you don't really need one to compile for it without worry concerning bug complaints.

Yeah, it's not really my intention to compete with YYG. :P This is just because I can't actually compile Iji on Windows (it's too big), so cross-compiling's the only option.

Ok, I wrote a wiki page detailing how I did it:
http://enigma-dev.org/docs/Wiki/CrossCompileWithAudio

I'm still trying to figure out why mp3 won't work; WAVs work fine, so that's very confusing to me. If anyone figures it out, please let me know.

I think trying to compile with mingw64 on windows would also be a solution, but you would probably have to hit the thing with many rocks to make it work. I can't specifically remember the reason why mingw64 didn't work with ENIGMA on windows.

That would probably work, but I'm not too experienced with MinGW on Windows, much less its 64-bit woes. Cross-compiling is easier and faster, anyway, but thanks for the advice.
