Hello!

It's possible to compile the original Descent source code with Open Watcom without that "Opus Make"?

Any suggestions?

:roll:

I don't believe it's possible to do it straight out of the box. It used the DOS/4GW extender, a proprietary audio library, and Interplay's secret MVE code. You'd have to comment out all references to the audio library and the MVE playing code and work from there.

The source documentation says the audio and modem stuff commented out, and they succesfully compiled with Watcom 10 and Opus Make before they release it (without sound and network, of course).

The DOS4GW stuff included with Open Watcom.

And Descent 1 doesn't use the MVE lib.

Ah, D1, my bad. I coulda sworn that when they released the source they had a big warning label on it saying "THIS DOES NOT COMPILE."

A quote from the Descent Developer Network's D1 source code page:

"The source code as it is packaged on this site will compile, but without sound support, and serial port (including modem) support."
