First of all, ariannexp is *NOT* a game, it is a library for developing clients of multiplayer games. Check http://arianne.sourceforge.net for the actual games.
ariannexp is a complete implementation of the network protocol described in Marauroa, in standard ISO C++, and fully tested with test cases. It uses SDL, SDL_net, cppUnit, Python and SWIG.
The main point of ariannexp is to provide a framework to connect to a Marauroa server and to allow game creation using Python as the development language.
Before you even try to compile ariannexp please go and download
- SDL 1.2.x
- SDL_net 1.2.x
- SWIG 1.13.21
- Python 2.3
How to compile in Linux
It is very easy, just make sure that you are running the latest version of... :)
Only joking, just make sure that you are using GCC 3.x and automake 1.7
sh autogen.sh ./configure make
You should see no errors at all. Then if everything went OK, you will have two main directories:
./AIGladiator/AIGladiator This is a test client for connecting to gladiators and fighting ( for you ). It does nothing and is not interactive. ./libFramework/pyarianne This directory contains the module needed to develop your own python clients. Have a look at test.py and execute it by doing python test.py
