how to download & test the latest version

No packaged built yet, so you need svn & python/pyglet:

1. http://subversion.tigris.org/project_packages.html
2. http://www.python.org/download/
3. http://www.pyglet.org/download.html
4. "svn co svn://72dpiarmy.com/cute-wars"
5. "python run_game.py"

why?
the game is still in "heavy development mode" and instead of updating it all the time, you can just check out the newest sourcecode from svn.

hey florian, are you running this on a mac?  i just switched over to my dads mac a second ago, and i installed pyglet (he already had python)  and his mac isnt detecting pyglet.  did you have any problems with it?  (btw my earlier problem was on a windows computer.)

Might I ask what "Pyglet" is and what size it is? I'm running low on computer space :roll:

Same for me. It won't install Pyglet though and I do not know how to even use the app.(or even open it).

pyglet isnt an app, its a module for python.  and i just got it working under the new version for windows, thanks florian.  its very similar to pixel war right now, except it has sounds and enemies aren't just targets waiting to be shot.

the old pyglet mac installer had problems with os x leopard. but according to the developer it works fine now.

once you have python & pyglet installed; open a terminal, go to the vLOL folder - for example

Code: [Select]
cd Downloads/vLOL

and run the game via

Code: [Select]
python run_game.py


errors? ouch!

I am more of a visual person and sorry to say this but I think I might have the wrong type/version. I am using a Mac and please send me very good instructions by PM please.

if you aren't into the technology behind the game this really isn't that interesting ;)

So how do you edit the .py files while keeping the formatting?
I try to edit something and the game wont start.

usually it gives you a quite good hint about the cause of the error.

in the sourcecode you need to stick to the indentation rules, which is two spaces (or multiples thereof).
