Am I missing something?

Post by Arkane »

Hello! I just got the 2.2.7 version of Stratagus. It installed perfectly fine but the program itself won't open when I try it to. Am I missing something here? I decided to install the older version but it still won't open.

Any way I can boot it up? I've been dying to create this RTS I have in my head for years now. I thought that WC2 was a perfect style then I heard of Stratagus, claiming that you can make your own W2-esque RTS with it. Any help would be appreciated!

Yes, you need a few Lua files to make the engine run. In my opinion, the easiest way to go about making your own game would be taking one of the Stratagus family games with open source content (such as Wyrmsun or Aleona's Tales) and then modifying it to fit your vision, as these games already come with the necessary Lua files and etc. set up.
