Mark, the original plan was to get the sources into a more "modern" state, then swtich the graphics to QT. The whole thing is stuck at the moment as the conversion wasn't finished (this is not on github).
BTW, which branch are you working from? The "Master" has some problems (hence the work in the offline version), and the "VCC-1.200b" branch is the current release.

I'm not a make guru so it could be a bit verbose, but it works!A few patches for compatibility, a few 'bugs' fixed that GCC complains about, #include <afxwin.h> commented-out, a call to AfxInitRichEdit commented-out, and one line in the main .RC commented-out for the moment, but it boots into the Coco3 BASIC ROM!!!What didn't run was the Knight Lore cartridge image, though my total testing has been around 10 seconds! Plus there's the small matter of the stuff I commented-out... ;)When next I get time, I'll see if I can fix the stuff I commented-out, though I think AfxInitRichEdit will be a problem... can we do without it? Depending on the use of rich edit controls, it may not be necessary to call this function.So... I guess I should join the project and submit proper patches to build under both platforms, though I don't have Visual Studio installed (that was the point of this exercise). And I have to learn how to use git (though I have been using Mercurial).The patches should be simple, like _inline (MSVC) -> inline (gcc) so I guess we create an 'osd' header and #define INLINE depending on compiler etc...I guess when we get it running 100% in GCC we can replace the Win32API calls with wxWidgets or (shudder) Qt and have it running on different platforms... I've used wxWidgets before but must admit I wasn't completely enamoured with it.Regards,-- |              Mark McDougall                | "Electrical Engineers do it|   <https://retroports.blogspot.com.au/>    |   with less resistance!"-- Coco mailing listCoco at maltedmedia.comhttps://pairlist5.pair.net/mailman/listinfo/coco
