Where should I place the Makefile? I can add it into the forum, but it is several 100 lines. Better way would be to add it to the win-32-depends zip. The steps (to possibly open the discussion how to make it better):
- I have used cygwin and the 32-bit Mingw compilier i686-pc-mingw32. The gave the best compatibility to the exisiting lib in the depents directory.
- Since using cygwin rather than the MinGW installer, some more packages were missing (which are available within MinGW). I would suggest adding those into the depends.zip or create an additional depends_add.zip (or just provide the download links). One can also use MinGW/MSYS directly, with possibly less issues. However, I want to have only one system on my PC (Cygwin since it provides much more packages) and use cross-compilation to the MinGW-compiler if required.
- I didn't the the program compiled with the provided QT version from the depents.zip. I needed to compile it from source. I anyone has issues with compiliation of QT, please report. We can also add it to the depends_add.zip.
- Running the Makefile and praying to god...
I have create a new zip: allacrost-i686-pc-mingw32-depends.zip including all include, lib and bin files as well as the Makefile required to compile and link both, the game and the editor with cygwin and i686-pc-ming32 cross-compiler for Windows (tested on Windows 10, but should be working at least with Windows 7 also without any issues). Tell me where to upload or how to share. Would be a good idea to add this here.
