Another long break, but the Hedgewars PAotH comics are back, for now! Catch up on earlier comics here: http://www.hedgewars.org/comic
Hopefully this time I won't take another long hiatus. ;)

Hey everyone, long time no see.
This is an announcement for Mac users all over the world, Hedgewars is available in homebrew - http://brew.sh/!
This heavily simplifies building requirements, emulating a linux package manager with the simplicity of OSX. The instructions are fairly straightforward once you have Homebrew installed (check the link above if you don't).
Open a terminal and just run
brew tap homebrew/games brew install homebrew/games/hedgewars brew linkapps hedgewars
and it will download the latest stable binary! If you want to customize your version (for example to enable video recording or local server) check the various options with
brew info homebrew/games/hedgewars
Now if you want and try the bleeding edge version, for example a beta (hint hint), now you can just do
brew install homebrew/games/hedgewars --HEAD
Feel free to report any problems and positive feedback in this thread! Cheers
As usual w/ betas, we haven't added much content yet, art might change etc. If anyone has content they totally feel should be included, feel free to package something up. Ideally as a proper hwp for easy testing/inclusion.
Anyway, after firing up the Windows VM and issuing the usual imprecations, the following was produced:
As usual, Linux users are hopefully using:
Building on Linux
to stay up to date, and OSX users are SOL until an OSX user does a build.
To do your own build, please use revision c6cf08ee999e (hg pull -u;hg up -r c6cf08ee999e;cmake .;make install)
