I didn't even know that Windows had a package manager. That's pretty cool.


ags should be the default download now.

One can get an specific version by using the --version VERSIONNUMBER command. This allows getting versions that are available in the community repository but not yet approved by moderation, as also enables getting previous versions of Adventure Game Studio available in the community driven package manager.

Code: PowerShell
  1. choco install --version ags
Code: PowerShell
  1. cinst --version ags

If you already had installed ags through chocolatey, you can use the upgrade command to get the latest version approved in the chocolatey package manager.

Code: PowerShell
  1. choco upgrade ags

One example usage I have of this package, is I need the AGS.Types.dll when building the Editor plugin of AgsGet (AGS.Plugin.AgsGet.dll), so I just directly install ags in my pipeline on Azure when building the plugin. It's not fast but it's simple enough that it won't complicate my CI.

Also, Microsoft has a compatibility thing for Server Core that should allow running AGS in a CI system based on server core

Chocolatey version default is now on (this should be what you get with choco upgrade ags if you already have it installed with choco). I also added previously.


Given winget is becoming the standard Windows Package manager, I am thinking about pushing it there. If someone has concerns about this, please let me know - I think it would be nice, same as Chocolatey though, only pushing stable releases, unless they switch to a channel based approach.

Edit: also default version on chocolatey is now
