Unzip the ZIP file and open the resulting folder. Double-click 4x0ng.exe to begin the game. Xbox 360 game controllers should work if connected via USB.
COMPATIBILITY NOTICE: This game is not compatible with DEP (Data Execution Prevention) on Windows, and will crash unless DEP is disabled for 4X0NG.EXE. It is not necessary to disable it system-wide; you can turn it off per-application. You may wish to consult Microsoft's DEP help page:
You will need to have installed the SDL, SDL-TTF, SDL-IMAGE, SDL-MIXER, and SDL-GFX libraries. Extract the files from the archive; the binary is called 4x0ng.bin.
Known issues on Linux
- The current directory must be the same as the executable's.
- Some Linux users may get an error message about not being able to load SDL-GFX. If this happens, try choosing the CONTINUE option. I am working on a fix.
