 +== Windows - cygwin ==
 +**1. Install Cygwin**
 +
 +Download the Cygwin setup package from http://​cygwin.com/​install.html.
 +
 +Choose either the 32-bit or 64-bit environment. 32-bit will work fine on both 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows. The setup program is also your Cygwin environment updater. If you have an existing Cygwin environment,​ the setup program will, by default, update your existing packages.
 +
 +Choose where you want to install Cygwin. The entire environment is self-contained in it's own folder, but you can also interact with files from outside the environment if you want to as well. The default install path is ''​C:​\Cygwin''​.
 +  - Choose a mirror to download packages from, such as the kernel.org mirrors.
 +  - Choose a "​storage area" for your package downloads.
 +
 +**2. Package selection**
 +
 +The next screen you see will be the package selections screen. In the upper left is a search box. This is where you will want to search for the necessary packages.
 +
 +These are the package names you'll want to search for:
 +
 +  * ''​mingw64-i686-gcc-core''​ (for building 32bit binaries),
 +  * ''​mingw64-i686-gcc-g++''​ (also for 32bit... C++ support... not required for ioquake3, but useful for compiling other software),
 +  * ''​mingw64-x86_64-gcc-core''​ (for building 64bit binaries),
 +  * ''​mingw64-x86_64-gcc-g++''​ (for 64bit, same as above),
 +  * ''​make'',​
 +  * ''​bison''​ and
 +  * ''​git''​.
 +
 +When you search for your packages you'll see category listings. These packages would all be under the "​Devel"​ category.
 +
 +To select a package, change the '​Skip'​ to the version of the package you want to install. The first click will be the newest version and subsequent clicks will allow you to choose older versions of the package. In our case here, you're probably good choosing the latest and greatest.
 +
 +**3. Install packages**
 +
 +After you have selected your packages, just hit '​Next'​ in the lower right. Cygwin will automatically add package dependencies. Hit next again to let the install run. Done.
 +
 +The entire environment uses about 1GB of disk space (as opposed to about 6GB for a Visual Studio install).
 +
 +**4. Using Cygwin to check out and build ioquake3**
 +
 +After the install has completed you should have a '​Cygwin Terminal'​ icon on your Desktop. This is the bash shell for Cygwin, so go ahead and run it.
 +
 +At the command prompt type: ''​git clone https://​github.com/​zturtleman/​lilium-voyager.git''​
 +
 +This will download the Lilium Voyager master branch source into a new ''​lilium-voyager''​ folder.
 +
 +Change to the folder that was created: ''​cd lilium-voyager''​
 +
 +You can build EF for 32 or 64 bit Windows by running one of the following
 +
 +  * ''​make ARCH=x86''​ (32 bit) or
 +  * ''​make ARCH=x86_64''​ (64 bit).
 +
 +After the build completes the output files will be in the ''​build''​ folder. The path would be ''​C:​\Cygwin\home\<​nowiki><​username></​nowiki>​\lilium-voyager\build\release-mingw32-arch''​ for the default Cygwin install.
 ===== Graphic settings ===== ===== Graphic settings =====
 There is not much to say about the individual graphic settings in ''​graphic data''​. The effects should be known. However, the brightness control described in the next section can be found in ''​Graphic data II'',​ if something needs to be readjusted. There is not much to say about the individual graphic settings in ''​graphic data''​.
