Compiling Minetest on Windows

by bgsmithjr » Post

EDIT: You will also need OpenAL for sound support:
http://connect.creativelabs.com/openal/ ... Items.aspx

Code: Select all

Compiling on Windows:
---------------------

- You need:
    * CMake:
        [url]http://www.cmake.org/cmake/resources/software.html[/url]
    * MinGW or Visual Studio
        [url]http://www.mingw.org[/url]/
        [url]http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/default[/url]
    * Irrlicht SDK 1.7:
        [url]http://irrlicht.sourceforge.net/downloads.html[/url]
    * Zlib headers (zlib125.zip)
        [url]http://www.winimage.com/zLibDll/index.html[/url]
    * Zlib library (zlibwapi.lib and zlibwapi.dll from zlib125dll.zip):
        [url]http://www.winimage.com/zLibDll/index.html[/url]
    * Optional: gettext bibrary and tools:
        [url]http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/downlinks/gettext.php[/url]
        - This is used for other UI languages. Feel free to leave it out.
HERE * Libvorbis 1.3.3
                DLL=[url]http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?libvorbis[/url]
                INCLUDE=[url]http://xiph.org/downloads/[/url]
HERE  *Libvorbisfile
                DLL=[url]http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?libvorbisfile[/url]
                INCLUDE=libvorbis/include
HERE *Libogg
                INCLUDE=[url]http://xiph.org/downloads/[/url]
                DLL= [url]http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/L/libogg.dll/-/download.html[/url]
    * And, of course, Minetest-c55:
        [url]http://c55.me/minetest/download[/url]
- Steps:
    - Select a directory called DIR hereafter in which you will operate.
    - Make sure you have CMake and a compiler installed.
    - Download all the other stuff to DIR and extract them into there.
      ("extract here", not "extract to packagename/")
      NOTE: zlib125dll.zip needs to be extracted into zlib125dll
    - All those packages contain a nice base directory in them, which
      should end up being the direct subdirectories of DIR.
    - You will end up with a directory structure like this (+=dir, -=file):
    -----------------
+ DIR
                              - oalinst.exe
        - zlib-1.2.5.tar.gz
        - zlib125dll.zip
        - irrlicht-1.7.1.zip
                - libvorbis-1.3.3.zip
                - libogg-1.3.0.zip
        - 110214175330.zip (or whatever, this is the minetest source)
        + zlib-1.2.5
            - zlib.h
            + win32
            ...
        + zlib125dll
            - readme.txt
            + dll32
            ...
        + irrlicht-1.7.1
            + lib
            + include
            ...
HERE  + libvorbis-1.3.3.zip
                       + lib
                       + include
                         ...
HERE + libogg-1.3.0.zip
                       + lib
                       + include
                         ...
        + gettext (optional)
            +bin
            +include
            +lib
        + minetest
            + src
            + doc
            - CMakeLists.txt
            ...
    -----------------
    - Start up the CMake GUI
    - Select "Browse Source..." and select DIR/minetest
    - Now, if using MSVC:
        - Select "Browse Build..." and select DIR/minetest-build
    - Else if using MinGW:
        - Select "Browse Build..." and select DIR/minetest
    - Select "Configure"
    - Select your compiler
    - It will warn about missing stuff, ignore that at this point. (later don't)
    - Make sure the configuration is as follows
      (note that the versions may differ for you):
-------------------------------------------------------------
        BUILD_CLIENT                         [X]
    BUILD_SERVER                       [  ]
    CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE             Release
    CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX     DIR/minetest-install
    IRRLICHT_SOURCE_DIR       DIR/irrlicht-1.7.1
    RUN_IN_PLACE                        [X]
    WARN_ALL                                 [  ]
    ZLIB_DLL                                    DIR/zlib125dll/dll32/zlibwapi.dll
    ZLIB_INCLUDE_DIR                 DIR/zlib-1.2.5
    ZLIB_LIBRARIES                       DIR/zlib125dll/dll32/zlibwapi.lib

- Hit "Configure"
    - Hit "Configure" once again 8)
    - If something is still coloured red, you have a problem.
    - Hit "Generate"
    If using MSVC:
        - Open the generated minetest.sln
        - The project defaults to the "Debug" configuration. Make very sure to
          select "Release", unless you want to debug some stuff (it's slower
          and might not even work at all)
        - Build the ALL_BUILD project
        - Build the INSTALL project
        - You should now have a working game with the executable in
            DIR/minetest-install/bin/minetest.exe
        - Additionally you may create a zip package by building the PACKAGE
          project.
    If using MinGW:
        - Using the command line, browse to the build directory and run 'make'
          (or mingw32-make or whatever it happens to be)
        - You may need to copy some of the downloaded DLLs into bin/, see what
          running the produced executable tells you it doesn't have.
        - You should now have a working game with the executable in
            DIR/minetest/bin/minetest.exe

Windows releases of minetest are built using a bat script like this:
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, if using visual studio you'll want to go to the solution explorer, right click the minetest project, goto properties,on the left treeview, expand Linker, then click input, then on the right side, in the field Ignore Specific Default Libraries add

libc.lib, libcmt.lib, libcd.lib, libcmtd.lib, msvcrtd.lib

Also, while using cmake-gui I noticed it is passing /MD, but on visual studio it passes /MT, you can change that by opening the properties of the minetest project expaning C++ on the right, then selecting Code Generation, changing the runtime library field to Multi-Threaded DLL(/MD)

I don't use the dll, I just the .lib file. You can compile it yourself using cmake gui.
Here is what I use.

EDIT : When I Use libvorbis.lib there is :

C:\Users\****\Desktop\Minetest\libogg.dll : fatal error LNK1107: invalid or corrupt file : can not read 0x278

From what google gives me, it seems to be MSVCRT.dll.

Update by searching "vcredist.exe" on Microsoft's website.

Oh sorry, you have to go the solution explorer on the left hand side, select the project 'minetest', then expand Linker, then choose input, then on the right hand side there should be something that says 'Ignore specific default libraries' in that box put.
libc.lib, libcmt.lib, libcd.lib, libcmtd.lib, msvcrtd.lib

Hi Jordach,

I download "Vcredist.exe" and after installation, it had no effect, still the same error.

select the main project select clean, then rebuild and if that doesnt work change solution explorer->c/c++ -->code generation, on the right side runtime library field->value='/MT' multi-threaded, to '/MD Mult-threaded DLL'

I will need more information, if you start from the beginning with the unmodified source and tell me what you do in steps, I could help but I have too little of information to help you any more, now.

Idea: you should make Windows binairies about the latest git and distribute them (update them daily/weekly).
That'd help a lot of people. Thanks. :)

When I delete:

lua_pushnumber (L, HUGE_VAL);

Line 255.

I can compile the game but when I try to enter the game, minetest crash.

EDIT : Calinou, sa servirait à rien, il y a pas mal de personnes qui modifie les sources de minetest pour pouvoir y inclure du contenu. Donc si on peu pas compiler les sources du jeu nous mêmes, ce serait compliquer on va pas déranger bgsmithjr à chaque fois.

I agree. I can't use Linux since Acer don't provide me with drivers to run the bloddy damn thing, I am currently stuck with the version provided by bgsmithjr, and the second problem is, I can try to compile, but get lost at the MiniGW (OR MSVS STAGE.) I hope you could become the newest Windows package maker, and you do seem pretty nice I must admit.
