regarding post viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1310&p=6356#p6356
Thanks Carsten. Sorry about the confusion.
I want to get the Cafu source code in order to compile it. I've been to the download page, but still don't understand what I should get.
I have already downloaded and started using http://www.cafu.de/files/Cafu-12.05-win32.zip.

Ok. You can get the source code either from the Git repository, or by downloading it from https://bitbucket.org/cafu/cafu/downloads (on this page, click “Branches” to see the relevant download links).

Btw., this is also what is described at the very top of the Downloads page. Directly below that, please follow link Getting Started with the Cafu Source Code. It describes in detail how to compile, once obtained, the Cafu source code.

Note that the file that you have mentioned above is a binary release file. It contains ready-made executables, but no source code. (Insofar, you were right, your problem is the same as the one you originally posted to.)

To summarize: Everything that you need is available at the Downloads page in the first section whose heading is "Cafu Source Code". Just follow the description and links there. If you find yourself in the subsequent section "Cafu Binary Releases", you're too far down on that page already. ;-)

If you still cannot find the source code downloads, please let me know. It's unlikely but not impossible that something is wrong with the page or with the way it is displayed on your system. :up:

Thanks
I had already downloaded that, but the name of it had me wondering if I had the correct file. Hopefully I should get somewhere - hopefully... Thanks
