I'd like to report a sucessful compilation of DM1.MAP. Actually
it crapped out at the end saying it couldn't find the wad file but
the portals and hulls are there. I freed up about 128meg of disk
space (first time I ran was with 27meg free and it crashed).

Instead of using a makfile, I loaded up developer studio
and put all of the files for qbsp into the project workspace. I
started off the project as a console app (which is what qbsp really

I have a P120, 16meg running Win95 (yes it worked under 95!!).
As soon as a I get a wad file (ANY WAD FILE) I expect to be able to
put a simple 2 room level into quake exported from my editor (with
whatever texture I can get into a wad2).


PS I already have the tools so no more .ZIP files please!! ;)
