Which files do you need?
If you are a Linux user, you are bright enough to figure everything out, like which package you want for your system and the like. You will probably want to download the source tarball, named something like freedroidrpg-0.14.tar.gz, uncompress it via tar zxf, and follow the build instructions.
If you want to play FreedroidRPG under Windows, you will need the latest FreedroidRPG Windows package, usually named something like freedroidrpg-0.14-win32.zip. This is an archive, that will provide everything you need for the game. You can also get the .exe if it is available, this is an automated installer.
If you are a Mac OS X user, we had to remove our universal package because it was not working on all machines. Help would be welcome creating this package!
Get it from the Git repository
You can also get the latest developer version from our GIT repository.
This version sometimes fails to build and can be unstable, but it often contain new features. Besides, it will enable you to help us by finding and fixing bugs.
You will need a GIT client to be able to download the developer version.
Here is how you can do it using the command line client:
git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/freedroid/code freedroid
Compile & Install
NOTE: If you're using the Windows version of either Freedroid Classic or Freedroid RPG, there is no need to compile anything since these packages come with pre-compiled binaries. All you need to do in this case is start the Freedroid executable, so you can skip the rest of this section.
Please refer to the INSTALL file in the source distribution of FreedroidRPG. It is also available at the following URL: freedroid.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb.cgi
