Trying to build OpenGFX, "Please install grfcodec"

Post by Erato »

Hey guys,

I'm trying to build OpenGFX so I can insert my own sprites for the main menu, and I got the following error:

Code: Select all

Cannot create obg files without grfid. Please install grfcodec, and try again. Aborting.
Makefile:356: recipe for target 'opengfx.obg' failed
make: *** [opengfx.obg] Error 1
I understand that I need to install grfcodec, but I have no idea what I need to do with the files downloaded from here: ... atest.html
I use Bash on Ubuntu on Windows, so I reckoned I needed the Linux version, but I don't know where to put the files or to let the system know I have them.

So how do I install GRFcodec?

Thanks in advance,
No pics no clicks. Seriously.

You might not exactly be interested in Ferion, but if you are, have fun :)
