ROTT ports and custom levels
Is it possible to load custom levels using ports OTHER than the official Apogee release? I'd like to play them using the hi-res port but I don't know IF and HOW it can be done!

Hello,
Try this out below:


I got the alternate level loading problem 'fixed',
please note this NOT a real fix (at least in my opinion), but it works on my computer.

Open rt_util.c and the code shown below should be around line 1851, (or search for 'changedirectory') reverse the 'true' and 'false' as shown.

return (false);
#else
STUB_FUNCTION;

return true;
#endif
}.


recompile and run...

I can now play other levels!

I'd try that... If I had a C++ compiler [img]graemlins/tinyted.gif[/img]

You can try the free compiler at:

www.cygwin.com

some of the ports won't compile without changes, but a few others do as far as I know. Personally,
I use either msvc6 or intel compiler....

the duke3d source is pure C code, so it isn't nessecary to use a C++ compiler. there are many free C compiler for win32.

the best (in my opinion) is Lccwin32. it's free, it's fast, very small (good for download) and it is widly compatible to VC. there is also a good IDE integrated within.
