Hi everyone,

I'm looking to get strac compiling on my windows 7 machine. I have visual studio express, but am unsure of what to do. I read the COMPILATIONS file, and it says to build the _build\solution-vs10e\ja2.sl file, but frankly I'm not even sure how to get that file. I found the file on bitbucket but there doesn't seem to be any obvious way to download it.

I'm looking to make a small mod of vanilla JA2, and strac seems to be perfect for that. I have experience programming, but no experience working on very large projects that other people have built, so it's not obvious to me where to begin.

As long as I can get it compiling I can take it from there.

Thanks!

Hello Arno,

didn't you build a weaponmod for JA2 Gold in the good old days?

Regarding your question about compiling Stracciatella code maybe DeFransen's guide can help you further?

I'm not a coder, you know. Smile


Best regards; Schein

I did! I'm very surprised you remembered that. It was in the days before the source code was available, so it was a very hacky affair back then. Perhaps with my mod I will bring back some of the ideas I used back then.

Buggler directed me to the answer. I was just overlooking a link to the repository. Once I found that I got it all compiled and running.

Thanks for the reply!

Also, good to see the community still going strong! I spent a lot of time on these forums back in the day.

Yes, I do! Well, I was always a bit of a hunter-gatherer for JA2 files I believe. Smile

Anyway it's good to see a modder/coder veteran back on track! I wish you good luck for your mod and much fun and if you have built something new... well, you know at least who would like to upload it to Kermi's archive then Wink


Best regards; Schein
