With the recent release of CryMono 0.5 it is a fantastic time to cast some light on another highly useful tool written by our very own CryRuan using C#. This was a big request on the forums and Ruan stepped up and made it happen.


Drehevel (meaning build)
A simple tool to help automate distribution of CryENGINE3 games.

What it does
  • Removes unnecessary files like backups and editor data
  • Packages the game into a convenient .zip archive
  • Saves build settings to .xml for reuse
  • Processes the stock free SDK build in two minutes at highest compression settings on an i7 2600k, or 12 seconds at no compression

DotNetZip for the archival library.

Drehevel 1.0 has been out for a bit now, so the community has put it through its paces. If you have not yet visited the GIThub depot to grab the tool and have a look at how it was written, I highly recommend it. This is one you will want to have in your arsenal. Our own resident code jockey Ruan has put a ton of work in to his baby CryMono and Drehevel works just as smooth. Having migrated from the Unity 3D world to CryENGINE 3 I know, I cannot thank Ruan enough for bringing C# to the Sandbox so be sure to send him some kind words. Until next time...

~ Have fun making games
