View Full Version : [Offtopic] How to compile/install Warzone 2100

2013-06-24, 03:33
I know I'm going to get some jeers, and some others who say '**** yeah!' I'm trying to install Warzone 2100 (http://wz2100.net/).

I've never compiled from source, and there's a generic how-to on Warzone's website (http://wz2100.net/), but I would be much more comfortable if I could find a detailed how-to through the Kali Community.

I'm willing to stumble through the process myself, but if anybody has already done this, I would really like to know what you did.

Kali is a Network Security, Penetration Testing distribution. You're welcome to attempt any installs you wish, but the likelihood of finding someone who has installed a video game successfully on these forums is, and should be, very slim.
In saying all this, Kali is a Debian based distro. So if you can find a how-to for this that applies to Debian, it should be quite similar.
Good luck

While I agree with daedalus1776, I tried it anyway

480 apt-get install build-essential automake flex bison libpng12-dev libsdl1.2-dev libopenal-dev libphysfs-dev libvorbis-dev libtheora-dev libglc-dev libglew1.5-dev libxrandr-dev zip unzip libqt4-opengl-dev libqt4-network libqjson-dev -y
482 cd Downloads/
484 mkdir -p /root/warzone
485 mv warzone2100-3.1.0.tar.xz /root/warzone/
487 cd
488 cd warzone/
489 ls
490 tar -xJvf warzone2100-3.1.0.tar.xz
491 ls
492 cd warzone2100-3.1.0/
493 ls
495 apt-get install autogen
502 apt-get install wkhtmltopdf
505 ./configure --with-distributor
509 make
511 make install
512 warzone2100
513 warzone2100 --help
514 warzone2100 --fullscreen

Works fine. Also, do not post a thread like "Asking for a how to.." ... Thread header should contain some indication of what you're looking for rather than having to drill down. Enjoy.
