Back to main Freeciv-stuff page
I've build all the required dll files with dllstack.sh from
Dllstacks are now available from Crosser Sourceforge page.
You want files named as win32stack-<version>.7z or win32stack-full-<version>.7z. These require Windows XP or newer. See Qt-client and freeciv-ruledit below for the difference of "full" and regular variants.
Once environment is unzipped, couple of configuration files must be regenerated
with correct paths.
cd path to crosser environment
Freeciv is released under GPLv2+ license.
I have used this kind of installation procedure myself.
Qt-client and freeciv-ruledit
Starting from version 0.15, there's two different crosser-packages available. Of those only the
"full" -variant contains Qt libraries needed by Freeciv Qt-client and ruleset editor. Those
programs cannot be used (they will complain about missing dll) if you have installed only the
regular crosser build. Other freeciv programs are usable with either crosser build.
Latest builds are available from
. Name of the topmost directory tells what freeciv branch they are from (S2_5 / S2_6 / S3_0 = TRUNK ).
Second level directory name tells what crosser version builds are compatible with.
Building Freeciv using Crosser dllstack env
I've now (14-Jan-13) made my own build script publicly available. Note that this was originally just batch
of commands to ease typing them manually every time. It still has things like paths hardcoded according
to my own system. Do not assume that you can simply use it as is, but adjust for your needs first.
Released under GPLv2+. winbuild.sh version 18.104.22.168 (Updated 13-Aug-15).
