Windows quickstart

  1. Clone the repository and pull down the submodules. You will need Git LFS.
  2. Install Visual Studio 2017.
  3. Install the DirectX SDK
  4. Install CMake
  5. Ensure Blender 2.79b is installed and available on the path

Linux quickstart

  1. Clone the repository and pull down the submodules. You will need Git LFS.
  2. The Wwise authoring tool doesn't run on Linux. Use Wwise on another platform to build the Linux soundbanks.
  3. If necessary, copy the generated
    Wwise_IDs.h
    file into
    src/asset
  4. Copy the soundbanks into
    assets/audio/GeneratedSoundBanks/Linux
  5. If you are on Debian/Ubuntu, run
    ./setup-debian-deps
    . Otherwise you'll need to install these dependencies yourself.
  6. Run
    ./setup-linux
  7. Run
    ./lasercrabs
    from the
    build
    folder
