This howto is about the installation and the setup of Eclipse Wascana on a Windows platform to compile and develop for UFO: Alien Invasion
Step 1: Getting the required software
- Download Wascana
- Download Git (Use the full installer of the official Git version)
- Download MinGW Extensions to be able to compile and link UFO: Alien Invasion This is still missing, but I'm working on it
Step 2: Install the downloaded software

- Install Git
Step 3: Clone the git repository

Change your PATH to also include the c:/wascana/mingw/bin and c:/wascana/msys/bin directories. Add a new variable named CC and set it to gcc.
Step 5: Start Wascana
Start Eclipse Wascana and import the cloned ufoai repository. Go to File->Import->Existing Project, select the ufoai directory and import the shown project.
You are now able to build and link UFO: Alien Invasion
