The first thing you have to do is run the installer. Do this by double-clicking on the ET_2.60_SDK_Setup.exe. By default, this will install the source code to the C:ET_SDK folder.

To use the source, you must have Visual C++ version 6 or greater installed. The source has been found to work with .NET edition of Visual C++, but Visual C++ 6 is recommended for better compatibility.

1. Open the src folder.
2. Double-click on the wolf.dsw file to open the project workspace.
3. In the build menu select the "Set Active Configurations" option.
a. Note: for .NET this will appear as "Configuration Manager".
4. Select Win32 Release for all versions of the code.
5. At this point, you should be able to compile the code.


The first thing you have to do is run the installer. Do this by executing By default, this will install the source code to the /usr/local/games/enemy-territory-sdk folder.

To use the source, you must have gcc 2.95 or greater installed. You must also have scons[1] installed.

1. Type the following commands at a command prompt:

cd /usr/local/games/enemy-territory-sdk
scons -c

2. After a few minutes of compiling, you should have cgame, qagame and ui .so files in your directory.

By default, a 'debug' build is created, which includes full debugging symbols suitable for use with gdb. To make a non-debug 'release' build, pass the parameter BUILD=release to scons,
eg: scons BUILD=release

You can use the included script to build win32 dlls on linux via mingw[2]. You will need to edit the script to point to the location of your mingw install and mingw binary directories. Place the script someplace in your PATH, such as /usr/local/bin. To build win32 dlls you would then type '' in place of 'scons'.
