AirMess on Desktop
August 2, 2014
Starting from just now, AirMess is also available on Desktop 🙂
Because AirMess itself is built as a portable library, I was using a Desktop build for most of by debugging.
Last week I worked on making it redistributable by building in all the required libraries and making sure they actually work on both Windows 7 and Windows 8.
The Menu UI is rough, but the game itself is the same as the Windows RT version 🙂
On Windows 7, you need to have at least:
- Platform update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, which update the DirectX API
- .NET Framework 4.5, that the game uses
On Windows 8, no additional dependencies are required.
Note that this version will NOT run on Windows RT devices, you will need to download the Windows RT version, available in the Windows Store.
I’ll keep updating both the Desktop version and Windows Store version, and the R7 release for the Windows Store should follow up in the coming week.
Once again, feedback highly appreciated 🙂
