at the moment I'm updating the Palm version to the latest CVS. To get the game data I decided to create the windows version using cygwin. Also it will be helpful to get the network stuff running under PalmOS. I got some compilation problems:

I don't know if anybody ever tried to compile on cygwin before, but it would be nice to get this working.

I got 0.49 running under cygwin.

1. fileio.h

# include <dirent.h>
#elif defined WIN32
# include <windows.h>

leads on my system to not include the windows.h file which then leads to all the windows native defines missing. I had to add windows.h by my own.

Because you HAVE_DIRENT_H or because WIN32 is not defined? A bit of googling turned up this:

  "Cygwin now does not default to defining WIN32 defines unless
   used with the -mwin32 option."

WIN32 is defined, but HAVE_DIRENT_H too, that's the problem.

2. fileio.cpp, get_home_dir()

SHGetSpecialFolderPath is missing at the moment. Someone has a clue what to include? I'm in a hurry right now and will investigate more in the evening if no one came up with some help :-)

Can't help with that.

This was a missing define for _WIN32_IE which I just fixed by adding a line #define _WIN32_IE 0x0400 above the # include <shlobj.h> in fileio.cpp

Now the executables doesn't run, but I hope it's only a missing DLL.
