Hi. I'm new to your site, and I registered for TWHL so that I may seek out helpful information from any of the best and most brilliant modders of Half-Life. It's a compliment, I mean every word. Originally, I was trying to get helpful information from Steam forums; but no one seemed to have helped nor want to help me in any way.
Anyway, down to the point. I found this source code from something or someone called Malorite. Supposedly, someone recreated source code projects for Blue Shift and Opposing Force. Here's the link for the one to Opposing Force:
The code for Opposing Force is in the folder titled "gearbox", and there are files in the "projects" folder called "gearbox_cdll" and "gearbox_dll". I decided that I want to use this source code instead of the other one in Github called Opposing Force Rebuilded, because that one appears to be incomplete. However, I am getting a lot of errors while trying to build and compile the code through Visual Studio 2017; and I think I know why. When you open the two project files I mentioned, you'll see that the .h and .cpp files are out of whack. The project files themselves were poorly made; and the source code, which is unedited by the way, keeps getting errors. Was this source code not finished as well?
I'm going to say the same thing that I said to the boys and gals in Steam forums. No, I do not want to copy and paste the opfor.dll file from Opposing Force to make my mod. I want to start with a template source code and add a few extra things.
If anyone has used the Malorite source code for Opposing Force for their mods, how did you bypass all of the errors and mishaps?
