Just to cast my vote: I feel it's essential to have a running copy, so you can see that your work is actually doing something.

Gives you a reason to continue, and that's just as important for writers and artists as it is for us coders!

Agreed!

So does everyone have a copy of the current form of the game running on his system? Let us know if you ran into any problems :-)

Haha, I think I'm going to need your help. I don't really want to download anything I already have but...I don't know if I have these things already. For starters, I have Python IDLE and Shell. Will these work or do I need to download the Active Python distribution?

If IDLE is installed then you should have Python already on your system. The 'shell' in windows talk is the terminal (start -> run -> cmd). Can't offer any more info because I'm not a windows person.

It's important that you'll need Python 2.5 to run PARPG. Neither Python 2.4 nor 2.6 will do the job. You can find out which Python version you're running by starting Python / IDLE and typing in "help()"; it should print the version number to the console.

Is that literally true Barra? If so, I can add some code to let the user know. Since I only have 2.5 on my system there is no easy way to check.

Yep, at least on win32 we just support Python 2.5. On Linux there is a Python 2.6 patch for FIFE, created by the Unknown Horizons developers. To support any other version of Python besides 2.5, we would need to adjust the compile SDK; that's not worth the hassle IMO as it we would rather enforce Python 2.6 in this case instead of supporting both versions.

Hello, I got a problem here: I downloaded and installed  fife, parpg, python 2.5.4.3 and  TortoiseSVN-1.6.1.16129-win32-svn-1.6.1.msi (followed the instruction carefully). When trying to run run.py all I get is a flashing black window and nothing more. My OS is winXP Home 2002, service pack 3. I double checked fife folder structure and the python installation integrity.
What's wrong?

Did you download a stable release of FIFE or grabbed the latest files from SVN and built from source?

EDIT: in case you built from source: simply attach the engine_build_log.txt file. With this build log we can find out if something gone wrong in the build process; that's likely as neither FIFE client is working for you.

I don't really know what "building from source" means Undecided
I simply followed the WIKI instructions linked on the blog front page. Tortoise downloaded the file, if I remember correctly.

Oki, as you followed the guide, there will be a file called engine_build_log.txt, residing in <FIFE>\build\win32\build_environments\scons. Please attach that file to your next posting and we can investigate what went wrong.

No, sorry. No such a file in that folder, only a number of .bat files. Do I need to run anything?

Yep, as described in the guide: logbuild_engine.bat.

Please recheck this part of the guide: http://wiki.parpg.net/Download#Win32
