Hello, I'm new to CS, but am excited to get to working on a project that's been a brainchild of mine for some time now. I believe Crystal Space is exactly what I've been looking for to finally put my idea's to purpose.
I'm having some initially issues, however. I downloaded the CELStart, thinking that's what I needed to run the demo games from the Crystal Space site. However, all I'm seeing is Executable files instead of Shell Script files for running the platform. Thus, I'm having issues running the Executable files to get CELStart running. An overall tutorial might be in order. If CELStart IS what I needed to run the demo's and begin working on my own project, then please help me get it running... Executables aren't typically what Linux uses to start a program...

Many Thanks wink

I guess the easiest thing for you to do would be to download the source code of CS+CEL and then compile it yourselves.

Hi,

  I guess you're referring to the binaries at http://www.crystalspace3d.org/downloads/contrib/?C=M;O=D ?
Anyway, generally celstart-based applications are zipped in a so-called .celzip file, and all one has to do is:
./celstart /path/to/file.celzip
Granted, a script can help setting the environment up but it's not strictly required, one can do it by hand.
And in fact there's a .sh script for celstart (celstart_wrapper).
There's a little README file with some instruction in there too.
Note most CEL demos files are sadly a bit outdated (they're from the 1.0 era iirc)
and may not work very well with more recent builds...
