    Has anyone sucessfully compile id's source?

    I'm in the process of downloading the Quake1 source code and i'd like to know if anyone has compiled it succesfully?, because i attempted to compile the souce for Wolfenstien with Borland C++ 3.1 with direct instructions from a Wolf mod site and it still errored. Also has anyone made any mods for Quake?

    thanks for any reply's

    afaik you get the source and the source only - none of the resources, i guess you need the resource files for it to compile

    true. I tried once and couldn't compile for lack of resource files, as well. To be honest though I have not yet read over the document really so I don't know much more than that.
    Code:
    if( numeric_limits< byte >::digits != bits_per_byte )
        error( "program requires bits_per_byte-bit bytes" );
    24bbs.cpp

    You might try posting that question on the linux board. They have more experience compiling source. The source is out for quake2 also I hear. GPL'D!!

    Hmm... I never knew that only linux programmers knew how to compile source code. How do we windows users ever manage?

    We manage because everything is automated. Windows programming is like a jigsaw puzzle, we take all of the prewritten code and just move it into place ;D

    p.s. I'm kidding for those of you who take me seriously. (shouldn't be too many)
