Hi all, I just found out that Star Control 2 source code has been opened to public. This is the link: http://sc2.sourceforge.net/ I downloaded the source code and everything. It was developed under VC++, so I am porting all the VC++ projects to Dev-C++ project. And I just realize that Dev-C++ cannot import .dsw file. Anyway, if anyone has been successfully done the importing and builds in Dev-C++, please do let me know (I will still try it too, and make a post if I made some proggresses). And if it's impossible to do it, please let me know too so that I will try to get VC++ to save me some times. This is a excellent game that deserves to be mod :) Long live UR-QUAN

Why aren't you getting the pre-build executable? I downloaded it accidently yesterday, and I've been playing it a bit. It's fun.

Also, I think there are instructions somewhere on the site, although I'm not sure. If you can't find anything, look at the SDL site on how to use it with DevC++.

I want to make a mod for this game. That's why I've been trying to build it on Dev-C++.

If I am not mistaken, .dsw is a superset of the .dsp. So It is also important to be able to import the .dsw as well.

Thx for the input though

DSW is the container workspace for sets of DSP (projects). The only thing the DSW really handles is the build order for the projects that it contains...

Same with .sln and .vcproj in VC 7.0+
