The C++ code you will be building upon for the assignment and project is part of an open source project hosted on SourceForge. The code compiles and runs on MacOSX, Linux and Windows. See the included README and release notes for more details on system requirements, installation and compilation.

Although there is a gzipped tar file and a zip file for the latest release, you should instead download the latest version directly from the subversion repository. Assuming you have a recent version of a subversion client installed, the command to do this is:

svn co ai4games

Please note, the code is not intended to ever become a fully fledged game or game engine. It is simply a small pedagogical example used to illustrate some ideas about how game code can be structured. It is currently in a very early stage of development and there is still a lot to fix and improve.
