Compiling Teeworlds on Windows

Q: What is bam?

Bam is the build system made by matricks used in Teeworlds.

Windows (x64 and x86)

Setup (Using Microsoft Tools)

  1. Download and install Visual Studio 2017 Community.
  2. Download and unzip Teeworlds source or Teeworlds latest source
  3. Download and install Python 3.x
  4. Download and unzip bam to teeworlds-version\bam
    • Run make_win64_msvc.bat (or make_win32_msvc.bat for x86) to compile bam
    • Note: Bam does not recognise Visual Studio 2017. As a workaround, to compile bam, run the aforementioned batch script from the x64 Native Tools Command Prompt (or x86 Native Tools Command Prompt for x86)

For Teeworlds v0.7.x

Compiling

  1. Run the x64 Native Tools Command Prompt (or x86 Native Tools Command Prompt for x86) from the start menu.
  2. cd teeworlds-version
    • Changes to the teeworlds source directory
  3. .\bam\bam config
    • Runs bam configuration
  4. .\bam\bam conf=release
    • Compiles teeworlds (Client and Server)
    • conf=debug will build the debug version instead
    • You can also provide a target:
      • game(default)
      • server
      • client
      • content
      • masterserver
      • tools
    • For example, to build the tools and master server in release mode use the following arguments:
      • .\bam\bam conf=release tools masterserver
    • Flag -f will force a recompile
  5. The compiled game is located at teeworlds-version\build\x86_64\ (or teeworlds-version\build\x86\ for x86)

For Teeworlds v0.6.x and earlier

Compiling

  1. Run the x64 Native Tools Command Prompt (or x86 Native Tools Command Prompt for x86) from the start menu.
  2. cd teeworlds-version
    • Changes to the teeworlds source directory
  3. .\bam\bam release
    • Compiles teeworlds (Client and Server)
    • Available targets for release and debug are:
      • release (for all in release mode)
      • debug (for all in debug mode)
      • server_release
      • server_debug
      • client_release
      • client_debug
  4. The compiled game is located in teeworlds-version

Note: Teeworlds 0.5.2 and earlier requires Python 2.x to compile. Python 3.x will not work. Python 3.x support is introduced with Teeworlds 0.6.0.

Note: Teeworlds 0.5.2 and earlier requires bam 0.2.0. The bam binary will not be in the bam directory, but in bam\src. You will need to change the paths accordingly to that or copy/move the bam executable to the bam directory.
