Rubygame 2.5.2 Windows Gem

I packaged rubygame as a gem!

SDL is included in the gem! So no having to mess with putting DLLs in your system32 folder or your ruby/bin folder. There may be a couple of problems with it, I haven't extensively tested it, but it works flawlessly with my own games!

'course I have to attribute the dlls to bmatthew1 http://rubygame.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=28

This is good news for distributing Rubygame games on windows. How does one install your gem?

(Almost) the same as any other gem:
* Download it
* unzip it (right-click, Extract All...)
* open up a command prompt (Start Menu->Run->cmd)
* go to the directory you downloaded it in (cd Desktop/rubygame-2.5.2-x86-mswin32), and run:

Code: Select all
gem install rubygame

If rubygems tries to install from rubyforge, instead of locally, run:

Code: Select all
gem install rubygame --local

to force installation from the .gem file


Now if this was on rubyforge with the other rubygame gem files, it would be even simpler...
