[2] OXCE v7.12 download & installation guide
« on: February 03, 2017, 08:42:42 pm »
The OXCE download package has the same structure as the OpenXcom download package.
All installation instructions are also exactly the same.


Important:
 - you don't need to install OpenXcom before installing OXCE
 - all you need is in this single package, everything else will only cause you trouble if you mix it together


Here are the brand new download links for OXCE v7.12:
  - Now available also as a Windows installer: Latest version for Windows (installer 64-bit), recommended (v2024-02-24): openxcom_extended_v7.12.0-win64.exe
  - Latest version for Windows (zip 64-bit), recommended (v2024-02-24): download
  - Latest version for Windows (zip 32-bit), only use this if you cannot use the 64-bit version please (v2024-02-24): download

  - Now available also as AppImage: by pedroterzero: see info in the next post

  - Version for iOS 8.0+ build by Daedalia / dresser (v2023-05-21): forum link or directly https://github.com/daedalia/OpenXcom/releases or https://github.com/dresserr/openxcom-ios/releases/tag/v7.9.6

  - Version for retro gaming handhelds (e.g. RG351P) by nl255: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,10454.0.html


Based on OpenXcom nightly build from: 2023-12-29 (commit f2e509c)

If you haven't found a download package for your platform, you can build your own directly from the source code.
Source code PC/Apple: https://github.com/MeridianOXC/OpenXcom/tree/oxce-plus
Source code Android: https://github.com/MeridianOXC/openxcom-android/tree/oxce-plus-proto
Source code iOS: https://github.com/MeridianOXC/openxcom-ios/tree/oxce-plus

Compilation instructions: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,7048.0.html
(requires c++17 compatible compiler)

Original post by pedroterzero here: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,6586.msg158984.html#msg158984

I have set up a test to build OXCE AppImage whenever a new OXCE is released. This should theoretically make it very easy to run OXCE on any linux distro (and WSL?), although I've only tested it on Ubuntu 20.04 & Fedora 38 myself.

The source can be found here: https://github.com/pedroterzero/oxce-docker/tree/deb7d72c4b24b0743443501a7e39e9911830f17e

Releases can be found here: https://github.com/pedroterzero/oxce-docker/releases

For me these steps sufficed to run OXCE from this AppImage (for v7.9.8 ):

Code: [Select]
mkdir oxce && cd oxce
# move your TFTD/UFO assets in here, see https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Installing_(OpenXcom)#All_platforms
wget https://github.com/pedroterzero/oxce-docker/releases/download/v7.9.8/OpenXCOM_Extended-v7.9.8-x86_64.AppImage
chmod +x OpenXCOM_Extended-v7.9.8-x86_64.AppImage
./OpenXCOM_Extended-v7.9.8-x86_64.AppImage

It has all the required libraries bundled, you can check what is included with the following command:

Code: [Select]
./OpenXCOM_Extended-v7.9.8-x86_64.AppImage --appimage-extract
