Compiling BZFlag 2.0.x on Windows
To compile BZFlag 2.0.x on Windows, it is recommended that you use Microsoft Visual C++. MSVC7 and MSVC8 are the recommended, MSVC9 may have some incompatibilities. You may use MSVC Express Edition to compile BZFlag, but you will not be able to distribute your executables.
Once you have downloaded your source code, you will also need libcURL, the Windows Server 2003 Platform SDK and DirectX April 2007 SDK. (Note that the November 2007 SDK is incompatible.) Install these libs.
Once the libs are installed, go to the win32 subdirectory of the BZFlag source and go to either the MSVC7 or MSVC8 directories, depending on the version you are using. Click on the BZFlag solution, and build the projects by pressing F5. This may take some time. Once the projects have been built look under the top directory for your executable.
