 ====== Part 1 - Downloading Orx ====== ====== Part 1 - Downloading Orx ======
-For this tutorial, we will focus on Visual Studio 32-bit for Windows onlyThis will keep things much more straight forwardand allow us to focus on the important thing for this tutorial - writing a game.+To make any games based on Orx, we first need the Orx LibraryAnd to get the librarywe need to clone the Orx repository.
-<WRAP center round box 60%> +To clone Orxfollow ​this guide: [[en:​tutorials:​cloning_orx_from_github|Cloning Orx from Github]]. This guide will also explain what happens when Orx is cloned and the various features set up on your system to make things easy for you. Once done cloning Orx, head back here.
-Very soon, this tutorial ​will be changed to favour the git version of Orx for newcomers +
 +===== Building the Orx Library with your favourite OS and IDE =====
-===== Downloading ​the 1.8 pre-compiled version =====+Now to build the Orx LibraryFollow the steps below to choose your IDE and build Orx:
-For this tutorial, it is recommended you download the Visual Studio 32-bit tutorial zip//[[https://​​projects/​orx/​files/​orx/​orx%20-%201.8%20%284392%29/​​download|]]//​+{{section>​en:orx:getting_started_paths&​noheader&​nofooter&​noeditbutton}}
-The tutorial zip contains pre-compiled / ready to run examples complete with source, as well as the Orx library. We will use this tutorial solution as the basis for our project a little later. 
-Extract the Orx tutorial zip file to a new folder on your machine. +Now you have your own Orx Library, and Development Environment, ​you have all you need to stat making games.
- +
-===== What's in the tutorial project? ===== +
- +
-  * The Visual Studio solution and several examples with source, each as a separate project under the solution. +
-  * Game assets, like sprites or sound for the examples. +
-  * Precompiled Orx libraries. +
-  * Includes for compiling the tutorial examples against the Orx library (you won't need these as the Orx library is already included). +
- +
- +
-Now you have your own Orx framework library, and you've seen what's inside.+
