Okay, I tried Windows Visual C++ but the downloads are enormous for someone who has dial up.  So I went on to the MInGW/MSYS route to building Crystal Space.  As you could tell from the title of this, I can't seem to get it right even when I go word for word from the manual.

When I open MSYS icon, i get the window.  Then I am told by the manual to type the directory as cd /work/CS which works but I am not quite sure if i am supposed to press enter here. (I had to move the CS directory to get this far)   Then the manual says to type

./configure
make -k all

I don't know how to do this supprisingly.  I don't know if I am supposed to press enter after configure to make it go line to line and when i do and type make,   I can't do the   -k all part of it because it starts thinking like mad before i could type it.  If anyone could help, i am using the latest version of MinGW/MSYS and the Pesudos Stable Version of CS.        Thanks in advance.

After typing ./configure you press enter and wait until it finishes.
Then you type make -k all and press enter. Then you wait and make coffee smiley

okay, i type the    make -k all    and it says     make: *** No rule to make target 'all' .

then I try it with   make -k   and it says   make: No targets specified and no makefile found.    Stop.

I also try with make     and    make all and i just get simular messages.


If you could get me going from there, i would be very thankful.

um...

This is going to be difficult. Crystal Space is a rather complicated program to use. You seem to have troubles with the basic working of commandline and such. It is going to be very hard to proceed here. Are you really sure you want to continue with this? What is it you want to do with Crystal Space in the end?

Well, I want to make games as you would probably expect.  I know I may seem like a real tard when it comes to coding right now, but i will learn, so please don't give up on me yet.  I would like to continue to try to make a game and I don't have much money so it has to be free, if you could still think of something, i would greatly appreciate it.

Well I recommend you first try to get comfortable with msys. Finding out how to copy/paste stuff shouldn't be too hard. You basically select with the mouse and then ctrl-v somewhere else. I'm still interested in that configure output.

Seems your mingw installation was not ok. What did you install exactly?

that could be it, now that i think about it, i installed the latest realease of minGW like the 5.0.0   or something like that, but my dad who isn't that great with computers and can't really understand much closed out of it with the x on the screen but it is there on the program list, but i will try reinstalling the whole thing and get back to you,    and thanks jorrit, your now my friend.

Okay, bad news, that didn't work,    do you think that i might need to try downgrading to a less recent MinGW?
