  • I'm trying to compile the PS1 port someone made on Github, but I suck at life and can't figure this shit out. pls help

    I can't figure out how to compile the source code for the PSX port someone made. The Project's on Github, and I've been trying to figure out how to compile it for the past 2 hours. Compiling it requires 2 more files, nolibgs_hello_worlds and mkpsxiso, which itself seems to require tinyxml2, which I can't seem to compile in Visual studio. As is probably obvious by now, I ain't no coder, this is my first time trying to compile any GitHub source code. But damn it, I wanna play this game on my PS1, I will figure it out. does anyone have a straightforward guide that even an absolute monkey brain moron like me can understand, or better yet, an already compiled version of the room that I can burn to a CD and play on my modchiped PS1?

What are some alternatives?
