Sam asked me to re-send this with a different subject because the old
subject line bounced it from the listserver…
On a slight update to what is below,I have it running, but the keyboard
input doesn’t work right.
I ran across the source for a DOS/Windows game called utumno, it’s a
graphical nethack clone (think Diablo). The game isn’t in development
any longer, but I’d like to get the code up and running on Linux.
Anyway, I converted the system dependent code over to SDL, but I’m
getting all kinds of compile errors is the ‘non-system’ dependent
section. I figure this is due to the fact that MSDos and Win32 have a
lot of common code, these sections aren’t completely system
independant. So If anyone is interested in helping me, send a private
message. As far as licening goes, it’s currently opensource but not
GPL’d just a ‘do what you want, but don’t sell this code’ type quickie
license. I wrote the original author asking if it is ok to change the
license to the GPL, but he hasn’t replied yet.
Oh a side note, I was going to port this from the DOS code, but after
looking at it, I realised it would be easier to port from the windows
code… strange eh?
