Anonymous asked: I can't seem to launch CDDA2 (the version you have on github), any suggestions?, there's just no launcher.
By “CDDA2” I assume you mean Cataclysm 2? CDDA is a mod of Cataclysm 1. Cataclysm 2 has nothing to do with CDDA.
To run the game, you need to do the following:
First off, are you running Linux? C2 is (probably?) Linux-only right now. It should compile just fine for Windows but no one’s actually tried to play on Windows to my knowledge. It might work on a Mac but honestly I have no clue.
First, you need to compile the game. You won’t need anything special to compile besides the ncurses library. On Ubuntu, I believe you can install ncurses by running “sudo apt-get install libncurses-dev” but the package name might be different. Search for it!
To compile, open a terminal and cd into the directory that you downloaded the source code into. Then just run “make” and everything will automatically compile!
Once it’s compiled, there should be an executable created called “cataclysm2”. To run the game, all you have to do is enter “./cataclysm2” into your terminal (without the quotes). Obviously you have to be in the directory that contains cataclysm2.
So, in short:
1. Compile the game by typing “make”.
2. Go into the directory that contains cataclysm2.
3. Type ./cataclysm2 and the game should run!
Let me know if you’ve done all this and the game’s still not working for you.
