lo and all that:

Few things on win95 and the mud.  1.  Everything you need is in the .zip
file in the circlemud ftp directory.   2.  compile it by going into dos
and then goto the src directory and renaming the (i think
that's it) to conf.h and to makefile.  After that you
should be able to run the batch file in MSVC to start your dos related
variables needed for compiling under dos.  Then goto src again and type
nmake.  (if anybody can get the mud to compile inside the MSVC developer
studio--I'd like to know how.)  it should compile everything down ok..
The problem you are having looks like you are just including all the
files into the project and comiling straight.  This definatly doesn't
work as you may have noticed do to the unix specific files you mentioned
are missing.  Don't look for them as win95 has different files for the
same thing.(you don't need them anyways if you compile it right).  Well,
if you still have problems give a hollar again and i can step you
through it more specifically if you need to.

there, that's my two cents on that today.
