Aukustus, I've had the wantings to remake my Veins in Python, what did you use to compile the .exe? That was the part that utterly baffled me a couple months ago when I first attempted it...

I use py2exe, it works very nicely out of the box. You have to set up a separate python script that uses py2exe functions to compile it. I can share the script if you wish to try it yourself.

Different options is pyinstaller. Making exe is as simple as writing pyinstaller --onefile main.py in most cases. Works pretty well on windows and linux, didn't test it on osx yet.

My experience with pyinstaller on linux has also been positive, though with libtcod at least it requires that the player has sdl installed separately.

Sounds strange. Fraternities is built on the top of classic python+libtcod architecture. Personally I don't have SDL installed on my linux distro and I didn't encounter any SDL problems...

It might be related to libtcod using sdl2 nowadays. I wonder if the original sdl is preinstalled but not that one.

I'm using Lubuntu, small-ish Ubuntu-related distribution. It's safe to assume that if library is preinstalled on lubuntu, it comes with *normal* Ubuntu as well. Seems that SDL is preinstalled as full dev package (libsdl-mixer1.2, libsdl-mixer1.2-dev, libsdl1.2-dev, libsdl1.2debian), but I see only one SDL2 package - libsdl2-2.0-0.

But I thought that I don't need *installed* SDL libraries if I'm using dynamic library?

Hmm, I need to test this again with a new virtual machine since I plan to release a native linux build at some point.

I recall there was a runtime error (which was fixed by installing sdl2-dev) when I tried to run the game on another linux installation.
