Okay, id Software make some of my favourite games (Quake and Doom), so today I was looking on their website for new releases etc. when I came across downloadable source code.
Feeling brave, I downloaded Quake with the intention of seeing what sort of file structure was used (source, resource and headers - it's in C, by the way) and seeing how the whole thing would compile.
I've seen the file structure, but I haven't a clue how to compile it. The file is found at the bottom of this page (http://www.idsoftware.com/business/techdownloads/
) and needs to be unzipped. If someone could take a look and help me figure out how to do it, I'd e really grrateful.
