Development / Re: Quest document - updated pdf

Yes indeed, i don't know how to create one from Doxygen and there is no doc or pdf file anymore.

The GIT repository only has dox files

Also on a side note, does anyone know how to download it offline so the Quest Editor can see and show it?

Development / Quest document - updated pdf
April 20, 2019, 09:33:17 AM
Hi Guys,

Has anyone got an updated pdf of the latest quest document that they could share?


After compiling from source, 1.6.1 gets a bit further but Ubuntu still doesn't like SDL and the shaders.

I think you are right, it is either 1.53 or running the quest in Wine with the windows version of Solarus.

Anyway, this is what i get in the console.

Info: Solarus 1.6.1
Info: Opening quest '/home/me/Desktop/My Zelda Quest master'
Info: Joypad support enabled: true
Info: SDL: 2.0.8
Info: Failed to obtain core GL. Trying compatibility instead...
Info: Failed to initialize SDL shader Hack. Shaders unavailable.
Info: Renderer: SDLRenderer : software
Hi Alex,

No I am using the standard Solarus from the source code. I see it has been updated so I will compile it again and see if it is fixed.
Hey guys,

I am having trying to run my quest in Ubuntu.

I think it may be an issue with GL and the new Shaders?

I have reinstalled all the packages as i thought it may be a SDL2 issue and have reinstalled Solarus and the Editor but with no joy.

The Editor works fine, i just can't run any games from either Solarus or the Editor???

This is what I am getting in the console when trying to run my quest in the Editor.

Info: Solarus 1.6.0
Info: Opening quest '/home/dad/Desktop/My Zelda Quest Draft'
Info: Joypad support enabled: true
Info: SDL: 2.0.8
Fatal: Cannot create the renderer: Could not create GL context: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

I thought they were included with the editor!

Anyway they are here.

Just follow the instructions half way down the page on how to install.

Hey BadWolf,

Try this thread and if you have problems then post again.,1251.0.html

The link to the stable version (1.5.3) is further down the page and you need to install the quest launcher first and then the editor.

If you are having post back and i will see if i can help, but try to be as specific as you can.

I have noticed the brightness difference too when adding missing tiles to the tilesets.

In order to match colours I have been altering the brightness of any imported tiles (from screenshots) by -20 in GIMP in order to get them looking roughly the same.

It is a dirty work around but seems to look ok.
Hi Phygelius,

Is this what you are looking to create, or am I missing something?

I find it is all about using T and B to get them looking right on top of each other so you mask the bits you don't want from the tile below!

Hey bonez001, I installed 1.60 in Lubuntu the other day.

Before you install the editor you need to install the following.

libsdl2-dev libsdl2-image-dev libsdl2-ttf-dev libluajit-5.1-dev libphysfs-dev libopenal-dev libmodplug-dev libvorbis-dev qtbase5-dev qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools libglm-dev

Either use apt-get install or use Synaptic, which is what I did, finding each file and installing it. Using Synaptic allowed me to check if I had them and if they needed updating.

Download the engine from

Click on the little cloud icon next to 'find file'. Extract the files, I put mine on the desktop, in the created folder create a new folder called build, go into it and open a terminal. I just did a right click on the build folder and selected 'Open in Terminal'

type 'cmake ..'

then type 'sudo make' and put in your sudo password.

Once this is complete type 'sudo make install' to complete the install

There should be a shortcut in your programme menus if everything goes ok. Mine appeared after I rebooted.

For the editor download 1.60 from here - and follow the same process except you don't need to do the sudo make install.

This should install the editor.

You can run it by typing ./solarus-quest-editor in a terminal or by adding a short cut to your desktop, pointing it to the executable (solarus-quest-editor) in the location where you installed it.

Any problems let me know.

***Updated to install in the right order**
