That's interesting stuff, Hos. I'll see what I can come up with...

Have you dug into this at all?

It does seem strange that you would need VC6 to build this. I have the compiler for work, but I don't really want to buy or pirate it for Blender development.

The MS Windows Platform SDK can be downloaded from MS free of charge. Coupled with gcc or DevC++, it would seem that a no cost development environment could be assembled.

This may not be the right place to pose this question, but if I did the nescessary fiddling with the makefiles and environments to get this kind of a setup going, would that be something that would be used in the mainline? I'm not terribly interested in doing splinter work.

If you're talking to me, the answer will have to be "er... no"

I quickly decided that I'll have to save my spare time for the stuff I'm really interested in - which is currently modeling and rendering. I do like to code a bit occasionally, but this kind of stuff is a bit over my head, at least when it comes to porting and stuff like that. I'll be happy to try to make some stuff later, when there's a not-to-messy way of doing it with freely available compiler gear (and I will not do it on VC, since my only copy of that is a *cough*cracked*ahem* version, which I don't own of course, who said that? I didn't hear anything...)
