I downloaded CS and have been trying to figure out how to make it work, basically. I'm on windows vista, the version of Crystal Space is 1.4.0 and I already have a working installation of mingw. I use Code::Blocks (with Allegro as of right now).

What do I need to do? I read this:

...and have no idea what MSYS is. Also, when I type in ./configure in the command prompt in the right dir (c:\crystalspace) it doesn't recognize the command.

I also read this:

...but it says I need to configure, build and install and I'm just lost.

Please help.

MinGW and MSYS are a set of programs that can be used to have a programming environment similar to what exists on GNU/Linux.

To install it, you have the information at
The info for the MinGW/MSYS installation of CS is at

Basically, you would need
- download and launch the MinGW/MSYS automatic installer (mingw-get)
- install it (pay attention to not use space or special characters in the installation path)
- choose the right CS library package from
- install the package by enabling MinGW/MSYS support when asked for
- MinGW/MSYS should have installed a shortcut on your desktop, this opens a terminal. In this terminal, type:
- "cd /c/PathToCrystal/CS"
- "configure"
- "jam"
