I recommand Codeblock with MinGW other than that I can't help with VS. But it seem that your download if broken since it is missing some stuff (rpgobjects.cpp maybe) Try redownload the game. Btw use the moddb link since the link in the website is broken.

the visual studio project isn't maintained.
In theory the code should compile fine (no guarantee), but the project file itself will need some updating at least.
It's easiest to just use codeblocks and mingw though.
This is not a url, clicking it is pointless

ok, i've got CB in 2.7.1 down to one replicated programming error...

Code: Select all

template<class MDL> struct vertcommands : modelcommands<MDL, struct MDL::vertmesh>
{
    typedef struct MDL::part part;
    typedef struct MDL::skin skin;

    static void loadpart(char *model, float *smooth)
    {
        if(!MDL::loading) { conoutf("not loading an %s", MDL::formatname()); return; }
        defformatstring(filename)("%s/%s", MDL::dir, model);
        part &mdl = *new part;
        MDL::loading->parts.add(&mdl);
        mdl.model = MDL::loading;
        mdl.index = MDL::loading->parts.length()-1;
        if(mdl.index) mdl.pitchscale = mdl.pitchoffset = mdl.pitchmin = mdl.pitchmax = 0;
        mdl.meshes = MDL::loading->sharemeshes(path(filename), double(*smooth > 0 ? cos(clamp(*smooth, 0.0f, 180.0f)*RAD) : 2));
        if(!mdl.meshes) conoutf("could not load %s", filename);
        else mdl.initskins();
    }

    static void setpitch(float *pitchscale, float *pitchoffset, float *pitchmin, float *pitchmax)
    {
        if(!MDL::loading || MDL::loading->parts.empty()) { conoutf("not loading an %s", MDL::formatname()); return; }
        part &mdl = *MDL::loading->parts.last();

        mdl.pitchscale = *pitchscale;
        mdl.pitchoffset = *pitchoffset;
        if(*pitchmin || *pitchmax)
        {
            mdl.pitchmin = *pitchmin;
            mdl.pitchmax = *pitchmax;
        }
        else
        {
            mdl.pitchmin = -360*fabs(mdl.pitchscale) + mdl.pitchoffset;
            mdl.pitchmax = 360*fabs(mdl.pitchscale) + mdl.pitchoffset;
        }
    }

    static void setanim(char *anim, int *frame, int *range, float *speed, int *priority)
    {
        if(!MDL::loading || MDL::loading->parts.empty()) { conoutf("not loading an %s", MDL::formatname()); return; }
        vector<int> anims;
        findanims(anim, anims);
        if(anims.empty()) conoutf("could not find animation %s", anim);
        else loopv(anims)
        {
            MDL::loading->parts.last()->setanim(0, anims[i], *frame, *range, *speed, *priority);
        }
    }

    vertcommands()
    {
        if(MDL::multiparted()) modelcommands(loadpart, "load", "sf");
        modelcommands(setpitch, "pitch", "ffff");
        if(MDL::animated()) modelcommands(setanim, "anim", "siiff");
    }
};
on the bottom

Code: Select all

vertcommands()
    {
        if(MDL::multiparted()) modelcommands(loadpart, "load", "sf");
        modelcommands(setpitch, "pitch", "ffff");
        if(MDL::animated()) modelcommands(setanim, "anim", "siiff");
    }
i get what appears to be a simple programming error which was done in more than one template

error: missing template arguements before '(' token

if i can fix this, i can fix the rest of the templates, and 2.7.1 will build (i already // them out and it built)

the last one that builds is 2.5

ok... i got it

in engine/vertmodel.h

Code: Select all

 vertcommands()
    {
        if(MDL::multiparted()) this->modelcommand(loadpart, "load", "sf");
        this->modelcommand(setpitch, "pitch", "ffff");
        if(MDL::animated()) this->modelcommand(setanim, "anim", "siiff");
    }
in engine/skelmodel.h

Code: Select all

skelcommands()
    {
        if(MDL::multiparted()) this->modelcommand(loadpart, "load", "ssf");
        this->modelcommand(settag, "tag", "ssffffff");
        this->modelcommand(setpitch, "pitch", "sffff");
        this->modelcommand(setpitchtarget, "pitchtarget", "ssiff");
        this->modelcommand(setpitchcorrect, "pitchcorrect", "ssfff");
        if(MDL::animated())
        {
            this->modelcommand(setanim, "anim", "ssfiii");
            this->modelcommand(setanimpart, "animpart", "s");
            this->modelcommand(setadjust, "adjust", "sffffff");
        }
    }
sweet...

for those who might think of dabbling into code, i also found (for me) that i had to put two files into the bin...

libgcc_s_dw2.1.dll
libstdc++6.dll

which (for me) were located in the c:minGW>bin folder

Idk what to say since the ideal editing view is in first person mode. You can switch to thirdperson mode by typing "thirdperson 1" in the console. (enter the console by pressing the "~" key". I'm too can feel what you meant when I'm making maps. Brothers LOL
