WME Lite Download Question
« on: May 12, 2013, 12:06:32 AM »

Hello, I am very new to WME and am learning.  I'll be around a lot, asking basic questions and needing your help.  First question, when I download the software, I am getting the Project Manager.  I want to make a game for the PC, but after that I want to be able to take that game and port it to Mac, IPAD & phone.  I see the WME Lite does that.  Is there a different download for the project manager for the Lite.  How does that work.

WME Lite is just the runtime component of WME. You do all the development on your Windows machine and eventually compile the game to package(s) (the .dcp files). WME Lite can run those packages on other platforms.

Okay, so I take it there is only one download and depending on if you want to run your game on a PC or a MAC/IPAD, would be how you package it. Is that correct?

You need to download both WME and WME Lite. Development tools contains in WME installation only (i.e. only PC version). During development of the game (on PC) you need to compile packages to distributing the game. Thereof you also receive one or several .dcp files - packages which contains all resources of the game, including graphics, sounds, scripts, etc.

This .dcp files (which you receive on PC) you can run on Mac/iOS with help of WME Lite runtime. For Mac version you need to include .dcp files in app, already existing in WME Lite. For iOS version you need to compile already existing app sources with included .dcp files.

Hey 2.0, I already make iPad games with WME Lite, but what did you mean for the Mac version "you need to include .dcp files in app". Would I need to do something different with the .dcp file for the Mac? I never really understood that part.

If you can compile Mac code in XCode than you don't need to do anything else with it :)
But Mnemonic also includes in WME Lite compiled and ready app for Mac. In Windows it simply looks like a folder with the ".app" extension. And you need to place .dcp file somewhere in this folder (need to look at the docs, I don't remember now where's exactly) to run app on the Mac without buildind it in XCode.

So I am confused again.

So I will download the Wintermute Engine Development Kit from here:

http://dead-code.org/home/index.php/download/

BTW, Windows 7, 64 bit is not included in the system requirements, is that really true?

Then, I will make my game for the PC. 

I can then go to a second step and download Wintermute Lite from here:

https://bitbucket.org/MnemonicWME/wmelite/

and I guess import my PC game?  and then package for MAC etc.?

Is this all correct?
