Editor for Linux in 2017
« on: 29 Jan 2017, 14:52 »

I am just curious how can I install the Editor for Ubuntu 16.04, is there any automated script for PlayOnLinux or is there any Native build?

Wine gives me the error:

Code: [Select]
An unexpected error occurred. See below for details.

I created a machine with the latest Wine (2.0) using PlayOnLinux, selected Install Components and selected dotnet20 , then selected run exe in this wineprefix, and then the latest AGS-3.4.0-P2.exe and everything appears to work!

It is in C# and although WinForms will not look pretty and probably be broken, it should compile. Sadly it also depends on native code which I couldn't get to compile See for the solution file I generated with MonoDevelop.

Native C++ code (AGS.Native.dll) was and is the biggest issue. It exists for historical reasons as the remaining part of AGS 2.* editor, which was written in C++. The idea was to rewrite this part in C#, but the progress was not too big over last years (mostly due the lack of participation). I think larger part of what remains there is room-related code which is shared with the engine. Unlike main project file, which is now XML, rooms are still stored in compiled binary format even in the game project.
