Installation instructions ========================= Windows XP / Vista / 7 ---------------------- Among the 5 binary packages (speed-dreams-xxxx-2.0.0-r4687-win32-setup.exe), only the "base" one is mandatory : it contains the core components of the game. It is also a kind of "demo" package, as it also ships 1 track (Espie) and 1 car set (the Supercars), plus the relevant AI drivers : that way, you can quickly get the taste of Speed Dreams. Then, you might want to download and install at least one of the 2 "HQ cars and tracks" packages : * HQ cars and tracks (1) : LS-GT1 and 36GP cars and AI drivers, HQ tracks * More HQ cars and tracks (2) : TRB1 cars and AI drivers, more HQ tracks, and the Career mode. Or even the "WIP cars and tracks" package (work-in-progress MP5, LS-GT2 and RS cars and AI drivers, and many other tracks) ... You can install them in any order, either by directly running them, or by re-running the "base" installer and "Add / re-install components". For the nostalgic players, the "Unmaintained" package can even bring you back the unmaintained Simu V2.0 and Simu V3.0 engines (but beware, the car setups are fine tuned for the official Simu V2.1). Linux ----- We ship no binary package on, but there are Ubuntu PPA packages : please check our web site : (and also our living community : ). If you are a developer, you can (see INSTALL.txt in the "base" package for full details) : 1) download the 6 source packages (speed-dreams-src-xxxx-2.0.0-r4687.tar.xz) or a selection of them according to what you need ... see below. 2) extract them into the same folder (through 'tar xvfa <package.tar.xz>) : a. Option 1 = full game contents : extract all the packages except the "partial-build-patch" one (not needeed) b. Option 2 = selected contents : extract at least the "base" package and then (mandatory order) the "partial-build-patch" one ; you can also extract any of the other packages (or 2, or all), but then always extract the "partial-build-patch" one at the end. 3) build the game yourself by following the instructions located in INSTALL.txt, chapter II.2.c Mac OS X -------- Any volunteer to complete the last details of the CMake port ?
