I cannot distribute a game that uses .bsp files because I would have to get a license

I think you misunderstand. I was requesting more info about requiring a license to use bsp files.

This is such a colossal waste of time, but that's fine. You do you. But at least have the decency to not castigate someone else for protecting their code under licensing or copyright. Write your own code.

"waste of time".... for who, him? Maybe he should be the judge of that. He's mentioned a few times he wants a challenge, this sounds like a challenge, so wheres the wasted time?

He's an enigma

One of the things putting me off is using old C++ or C versions, presumably not even compliant with old standards, which e.g. Open WATCOM has...
