Solved: Olymbits - Cannot Run Program Locally

Hi all,

Hoping someone can help.

I would like to run Olympits on my local server and after downloading the files from here: GitHub - CodinGame/SummerChallenge2024Olymbits:
and reading the docs on codingame, I was not able to run it. I encountered the following errors:
error: package com.codingame.gameengine.runner does not exist
Exception in thread “main” java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/codingame/gameengine/runner/MultiplayerGameRunner
at Main.main(
So the JVM cannot locate com.codingame.gameengine from the pom.xml file.

Could someone please provide a list of commands to run the program locally that does not result in errors?

I was able to run the game locally using Eclipse or Intellij. I was using VSCode.

I have cloned the github code into Visual Studio - cloning works fine. But there is no solution file (.sln) in that, so could someone explain what I have to do to get it to run - presumably I have to create a VS solution and call the github cloned code - what would be the call? - grateful for any advice/explanation.
