Build Xenko on Linux?


#1

Okay, so I was delighted to hear that the new version of Xenko works on Linux. However- I just visited the download page. “Download Setup.exe” or “Build from source” are my options; so I click on “Build from source”.

“In order to build Xenko, you’ll need Visual Studio 2017”- a Windows-only program. What to do?

You can compile games that run on Linux, not compile game studio for Linux…

Thank you. I’ll keep that in mind.


#4

I wonder when we’ll be able to fully use Xenko without the editor.


#5

What do you mean? That has always been the case.

I’ve seen some of the code only examples but most of them seem incomplete or experimental. Not even sure if it can be done without re-implementing content importing.

It seems like we should wait for this? https://github.com/xenko3d/xenko/issues/80#issuecomment-411614863
