How to compile Friday Night Funkin for Windows 10

A Tutorial for Friday Night Funkin'

How to compile Friday Night Funkin for Windows 10

"So , how do you modify the game's code?"

To be honest , It's extremely simple once you get the libraries installed.
Once they're actually installed , all you'll have to do is run the build_x64.bat located in "..\Funkin-master\art"
"Great , how do we get started?"
First of all , make sure you download the game's source code , in case you DIDN'T do that , here's a link to it!
Friday Night Funkin's Github
Once you've downloaded the game's source code , here's what you'll need to do :
  1. Install Haxe , you'll need that to install Lime in Step 2. Haxe is quite simple to install , just run the installer and voila!
  2. Install Lime. Pretty sure you didn't expect that right? In order to install Lime , here's what you'll need to do :
  1. Open Command Prompt , when that's done , just type in this command : haxelib install lime
  2. Once Lime is "installed" , run haxelib run lime setup to finish thing's up.
  3. If done correctly , when lime is typed in the Command Prompt , you should get something like that :
  4. Now that Lime is installed , here's all the commands you'll have to execute :
    haxelib install flixel
    haxelib install flixel-tools
    haxelib run flixel setup
    haxelib install openfl
    haxelib run openfl setup
    haxelib install newgrounds
    haxelib install hscript

  5. And you're done! All that's left to do is to put this batch script in "..\Funkin-master\art" and to run it! 
  6. After compiling , you'll get redirected to the game's executable directory

And there you go , it's that simple!

  • all it does is bring me to my documents and nothing else

  • this isnt everything, the github says you need visual studio code 2019 with the following individual components

    • MSVC v142 - VS 2019 C++ x64/x86 build tools
    • Windows SDK (10.0.17763.0)
    • C++ Profiling tools
    • C++ CMake tools for windows
    • C++ ATL for v142 build tools (x86 & x64)
    • C++ MFC for v142 build tools (x86 & x64)
    • C++/CLI support for v142 build tools (14.21)
    • C++ Modules for v142 build tools (x64/x86)
    • Clang Compiler for Windows
    • Windows 10 SDK (10.0.17134.0)
    • Windows 10 SDK (10.0.16299.0)
    • MSVC v141 - VS 2017 C++ x64/x86 build tools
    • MSVC v140 - VS 2015 C++ build tools (v14.00)

      this is why you get the error
    • error: 64bit is not automatically supported for this version of VC. Set HXCPP_MSVC_CUSTOM and manually configure the executable, library and include paths

      commentators edit: the game crashed upon entering freeplay and says the version is outdated but shares the same version number as the current release
