  • python - version 3.6+
  • python-pygame - python game library
  • python-pytmx - python library to read Tiled Map Editor's TMX maps.
  • python-pyscroll - fast module for animated scrolling maps.
  • neteria - Game networking framework for Python.

Optional

  • libShake - rumble library for Linux.

Smartphones

Android builds are highly experimental. Download and install the apk from the releases page and install to your device. You will need to manually install the mods folder. Connect your device to your computer and make a folder called "Tuxemon" in "Internal Storage", then copy the mods folder. Tuxemon will also need file system permissions, which you can set in your phones settings.

Fedora Linux

sudo dnf install SDL*-devel freetype-devel libjpeg-devel portmidi-devel python3-devel
virtualenv venv
pip install -r requirements.txt

Controls

  • Arrow Keys - Movement
  • Enter - Select/activate
  • ESC - Menu/Cancel
  • Shift - Sprint
Map Editor

Use Tiled map editor: http://www.mapeditor.org/

Building

There are many scripts for various builds in the buildconfig folder. These are meant to be run from the project root directory, for example, to build the portable pypy build:

[[email protected] Tuxemon]$ buildconfig/build_pypy_portable_linux.sh
There will be a new directory called build, which will have the package if everything was successful.

WARNING! The build scripts are designed to be run in a dedicated VM. They will add and remove packages and could leave you OS in a bad state. You should not use them on your personal computer. Use in a vm or container.
