I have no clue how I'm supposed to download this program :( (please tell me or record yourself doing it) (thnx in advance) :)

Hi Dude,

This is common to all itch.io platform. In the main Tilengine page, there's a blue button that says "Download". A pop-up appears, asking you for a donation, and a link to bypass it and go straight ahead to the files. Select whichever option and you'll get a list of links to download  for your specific platform.

Goot luck!

Hey I know this is old, but there's no "skip the payment" option here. It's 5 bucks minimum. What should I do? I can build it from source, but binaries that I know work would be nice. Thanks!

Hi,
This reply is one year old. Back then, downloads were subjected to a voluntary donation. But I changed this some months ago, and now prebuilt binaries require a minimum fee of 5€ (not a fortune either), to support the project and at least cover hosting costs.

So you have two options:

1. build yourself from source,
2. kindly donate and get the binaries you expect to work :)

Ok, thank you for the clarification! Do I need the Windows SDK to build it? Visual Studio gave me that error, but I'm not sure I was doing it right...

Thanks again.

Under further inspection, I don't need it, I just had to hit "retarget solution". Thanks for your help!

You're welcome! Glad to know you have it working
