rubygame? how? - hertzcastle - Mar 20, 2008 03:33 AM

I'm really confused as to how to install rubygame on my macbook.
Ive seen a few posts but they go way over my head!
is there a rubygame installer floating around somewhere?
or is there a really simple way to install it that im just not seeing?

Did you follow the install doc on the rubygame website? If so, what isn't working? Make sure you get all the different dependencies/components it has listed.

There doesn't seem to be a one-click installer if thats what you were hoping for.

tried all that, keep getting sdl error messages Sad
its a shame that rubygame isn't as easy to get into as pygame.
ruby is such a beautiful language.
its just os x that theres no binary for isnt it?
again, shame.
Gosu isn't too bad tho...

'gem install rubygame' will install it just fine, however there seems to be a bug with rubygame right now. Creating a new screen object fails.
