Trying to compile Ormus' new OBoE sources with winelib:

cd "Blades of Exile"
winemaker sources
cd sources
make
I get this:

wineg++ -c -mno-cygwin -I. -o actions.o actions.cpp

winegcc: g++ failed
make: *** [actions.o] Error 2
And it seems to be the same for every CPP file. How do I fix this?

You can probably ignore any warnings that mention deprecation, as this code is so old that it relies on all kinds of deprecated things, and it's not worth fixing.

As those those errors, they seem to all be about calls to handle_action() that confuse the compiler. You could maybe try casting the parameters when calling the function so that they will match its signature exactly. Other than that I'm not sure what to recommend.

That would be tough... This appears to happen with every CPP file.

There has to be something wrong here. It compiles in GCC under Windows, compiling with winelib shouldn't be so different...

It wouldn't be that tough, just a little tedious. It looks like handle_action() only gets called about 35 times, so unless other functions are having the same problem, it shouldn't take too long. (I once got to change every almost every '.' operator to a '->' operator throughout a 12,000 line program, by hand. Now that took a while.)

Also, the fact that it's being linked against what's actually a different library means that this makes some sense; the same functions should be present, but the details may differ subtly.
