Woohoooo! Its free!
But how can i compile it and run it? Wat programs do i need?
yea, if your using windows you cant compile it, you'll need the compilers and they cost money. LInux comes with compilers for free.
I have Cygwin which is a unix emulator for windows. Could I use that? I know it has a compiler in it but i dunno how to use it.
is there a .dsw that encompasses the entire project and builds some sort of binary?
Grrrrr, I open this reply box, and it took so long, I almost forgot what I was going to say..... Ah yes, I hope this makes sence since I can't read previous comments like you can on Elysiun, anyway
You can download from http://www.bloodshed.net
a program called DEV-C++ which works almost identically like Micro$oft's Visual C++ and it's free.
If I ever understand how to put the sources into a project in it, I'll let you know, but I don't know &^% about programming, and I need help, so if anyone can help, please do
hey dont bother, Dev-C++ isnt a compiler, it just use an existing compiler in the platform you are on (which is windows, isnt?),.. you dont need to use Dev-C++ or any other IDE (Integrated Development Enviroment) unless you are going some serious coding, which im sure is not the case =)
the problem now is, that , compiling Blender is only possible for Ton and other Blender developers since 1) the makefile system isnt working 2) there are no instructions, documentation or any kind
in other words, everyone is waiting for Ton to set up the correct cvs source, because obviously there was some error: the cvs source isnt usable
Charlls is right. I don't think its possible to get it to run in windows(for now anyways). I don't think that Ton was quite ready to release the source code because it has no documentation what-so-ever. Eventually I'm sure that it will be fixed. Just a little more waiting....
