I'd like to help with Xonotic

Hi guys! I've been playing Xonotic for a few days now (But I've been following it for months). I've played Nexuiz since 2.4 (4-5 years I think).

Anyway, I have some intermediate experience with C++ programming, and would like to help develop Xonotic. I think that I could learn a lot from helping with a game like this.

So, I was just wondering about a few things that would help me get started:

- Is there some sort of guide to compiling the game? I find that the hardest part of starting any project is figuring out how to build the damn thing. I use Windows 7 64-bit.

- Are there any coding standards/styles I should know about?

That's all I can think of right now. I'll ask in the thread if there's anything more.
Okay I found the compile guide in the wiki. I'll probably have trouble with it though...

Are there any obscure dependencies or quirks with building on windows?

You need a recent mingw/msys system, with curl or wget, unzip, and git. Then it's a matter of running the ./all shell script with the right argument.

I think msys 1.0.11 is too outdated now, so this page might not be as relevant as it was in the beginning:

Hmm, okay. I hope that msys 1.0.11 does work because I already downloaded it and am running the 'all' script Tongue

Oh hey mate, actually do you go on IRC at all? Join us in #xonotic on

Also, i'm updating that wiki page right now... it was indeed outdated.

Xonpatch might fail if msys is updated. I simply don't have time to fix that though, I guess the git mountpoint will have to be set by hand and the curl/unzip packages manually installed...
