Translations are cross-platform. This AmigaOS release has an Installer script, 
with which you can choose to tweak some things. The linked file below contains
the source code, too.

A short PAQ (README also has useful information):

Q: More speed?
A: If you didn't set music and sound volume to zero, try that. The scaled down 
"minicore" mod will help a lot because you can then choose a smaller window.

Q: Where is all the game data?
A: Download it - for example 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/flare-game/files/Linux/flare.0.19.tar.gz - then
put the mods directory to the same place where Install (or executable) is. 

Q: Why isn't there xyz in the install script?
A: Hey, send me that idea: thematic at helsinkilainen dot com

# Flare

Flare is a a single-player 2D action RPG with fast-paced action and a dark
fantasy style.

It is built on the FLARE engine (Free/Libre Action Roleplaying Engine). Its repo
is at https://github.com/clintbellanger/flare-engine

Flare uses simple file formats (INI style config files) for most of the game
data, allowing anyone to easily modify game contents. Open formats are preferred
(png, ogg). Maps are edited using Tiled.

## The Simplest Setup

If you are building and running Flare Game from source, this is the simplest way
to get started on all operating systems. Here you build and play Flare in a
local folder instead of installing it to a standard OS folder (e.g. /usr/local
or Program Files).

* Clone the flare-engine repo and build the executable.
* Clone the flare-game repo into your user directory.
* Copy the flare-engine "default" mod into the flare-game mods folder.
* Put the flare executable inside the flare-game folder
* The executable and the "mods" folder should be in the same directory
* Run Flare

## Building and Running (non-Linux)

See the Flare-Engine repo for instructions on how to build/install Flare:

https://github.com/clintbellanger/flare-engine

Flare Game is installed as a set of mods for Flare Engine. Place the contents of
the "mods" folder inside Flare Engine's mods folder.

* On Windows, the mods folder will be in the same directory as the flare
executable.
* On OSX, this will be inside the Flare.app folder, in Resources/mods

Then enable these mods in Flare's Configuration screen.

### Building and Running on Linux

Clone the repos:

	git clone https://github.com/clintbellanger/flare-engine
	git clone https://github.com/clintbellanger/flare-game


Move to the flare-engine repo and build:
For instructions more in detail see the INSTALL file in the
flare-engine repo.

	cd flare-engine
	cmake . && make


From this point we have two options:

Option 1
Install the game system-wide (requires root access):

	sudo make install 	cd ../flare-game 	cmake . && sudo make install 	cd ~ #this
step is important because we don't want to load mods from the repo folders
	flare --game=flare-game #alternatively, launch Flare from the desktop
application menu


Option 2
Run the game without installing:

	cd ../flare-game
	ln -s ../flare-engine/flare flare
	cd mods
	ln -s ../../flare-engine/mods/default default
	cd ..
	./flare --game=flare-game



## Settings

Settings are stored in one of these places:

    $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/flare
    $HOME/.config/flare
    ./config

Here you can enable fullscreen, change the game resolution, enable mouse-move,
and change keybindings. The settings files are created the first time you run
Flare.

## Save Files

Save files are stored in one of these places:

    $XDG_DATA_HOME/flare
    $HOME/.local/share/flare
    ./saves

If permissions are correct, the game is automatically saved when you exit.
