Title: VVVVVV: Community Edition
Post by: Fussmatte on January 16, 2020, 04:54:22 pm
Hello! VVVVVV: Community Edition (https://github.com/v6cord/VVVVVV-CE/) is a fork of VVVVVV that includes more scripting tools for level creators.

VVVVVV: CE is brought to you by the following people:
Misa, AllyTally, leo60228, FIQ, Stelpjo, mothbeanie, Allison Fleischer, and Dav999.

Notable features so far:
We hope you enjoy! For now, you'll have to either compile the game yourself (Visual Studio is very buggy and may not work properly) or download a CI build here (https://github.com/v6cord/VVVVVV-CE/actions) (note: you may need a GitHub account). data.zip no longer needs to be provided by the user, as it is included.

Here's an example of something silly you can do in CE: full-motion video! https://youtu.be/hWxci-7HOT0 (https://youtu.be/hWxci-7HOT0)

The first release isn’t out yet so this post is a bit premature but for now you can use the CI builds

As amazing as this is, it makes me glad that my current project isn't directly using VVVVVV at all...

So do levels made with this go here, in the main levels forum, or as a post in the "Open Source Projects" board outside of this thread?

i'd probably post them in the levels board with a prefix, like

[V:CE] Abort 12

I'm trying to build the source code, but I've never used CMake before and I'm having some trouble. I keep getting the following error:
CMake Error: The source directory "C:/VVVVVV-CE/src" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.

Does anyone know what this means? How can I fix it?

VVVVVV-CE currently doesn't support being compiled on Windows, but it might work anyway. The specific cause of your issue is unrelated: the correct directory to pass to cmake is desktop_version, not src. You should be doing something like:
Code: [Select]
cd desktop_version
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..

forgot to say this earlier, but it compiles on windows now. vce is in a somewhat unstable state right now since misa has been merging from upstream without testing which i assume comes after she's done


also, https://vsix.dev/vce/ is the page i've been working on which currently holds the most notable features of vce complete with images and unneeded huge paragraphs
