Copy the library (cygwin1.dll) into the windows\system folder.
Copy the binary (rvglue.exe) into a directory that is mentioned in the PATH environment variable (like windows\command), or simply into your working dir.
Assuming you are using the NHood1 directory for the editing stuff, this be would be a correct place for the executable.
Copy all the other files, especially the documentations, to some arbitrary place where you can find them when you need them.
To use this tool, you need to write a configuration file with notepad or any editor that writes plain-text files.
|Warning: The tool will overwrite any existing files without prompting for confirmation. Find out how the program works before screwing up your track!|
If you are working in the NHood1 directory, where the track editor's files have been copied into, some instances are placed and an instance-position file named 'myinsts.fin' is present, you could write a file (say, 'myconf.txt') like the following:
[ Create nhood1.w and nhood1.ncp: ] create( nhood1 ) [ Insert the track editor's output, USER018.w: ] user018.w ( tecolor ( ff0000 ) [make editor's walls bright red] ) [ Insert the instances, consider 'myfloor.prm' as being muddy: ] myinsts.fin ( myfloor( surface(mud) ) mywindow( transparency(113) ) )
Then you start the command line, enter the NHood1 dir and run the tool:
Basically you have to write such a file that fits your need, and everything is fine. The example above should give you the clue how such a file works:
Supported options are listed in the options reference, and command-line options are listed when running 'rvglue -h'.
