Just try to follow the instructions and let us know if you get stuck somewhere, there are many more people here able and willing to provide support, not just me. So don't worry if you don't see any responses from me, okay? :-)

So a little trouble with pulling down the tools to compile now...is there an easy place to get the tools needed? and i am noticing that the instructions seem a little vague if you are not a programer. Please help...thanks.

why don't you just use your distribution's package manager for downloading everything automatically? Usually, there are so called "meta" packages that will automatically install all required libraries and tools, without you having to intervene. Just select "development".

The package manager on ubuntu is called "Synaptic", use it (as root) and install the gcc compiler and GNU autotools, afterwards you should be able to build fgms using the instructions laid out in the wiki article I gave you.

For starters, you could also just try:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install build-essential

No, I am sorry - I cannot help you at all if you don't ask specific questions, and in fact nobody else will be able to, I am afraid.

Look, you need to work through the documentation and tell us where you fail, and then you actually need to provide GOOD feedback, not just broad questions. Otherwise, this will be a pretty tedious and long-winded process, one not many people will be willing to embark on. Sorry.

And I am also hearing that there are ways to connect WITHOUT fgms and everything connects directly? can you help me with this please thanks.


Please just see $FG_ROOT/Docs/README.multiplayer: http://gitorious.org/fg/fgdata/blobs/ma ... ultiplayer
You may also want to search the forum for "broadcast" or "multicast".
