Well Iâ€™ve been looking for an IRC client for the MIPS and Iâ€™ve come up with nothingâ€¦ And looking for source to much of anything win32 is LONG past something that will compile with Visual C++ 2.0 â€¦
However I did find this simple library built by Andrew Cater: http://www.rohitab.com/discuss/index.php?showtopic=33056
So with very little understanding of how IRC actually works I was able to build a SUPER simple client.Â Please note that itâ€™s so simple the / commands that youâ€™ve come to love are not implemented…!Â You get one shot for your name/nick/server & channel.. But hey the exe is like 70kb for the MIPS/x64 and 35 for the i386.
You can find itâ€™s source & binaries right here.
Also Antoni Sawicki has given me a BUNCH of leads on old public source, and binaries, namely ROIDS the first real graphical game we seem to have now for the MIPS.Â The source was a part of a PDTools thing that Dec had put together, however a lot of it will build for both i386 & MIPS. Iâ€™ve extracted the source for roids here.
I donâ€™t want to over promise but Iâ€™ll see if I can get quake to build some time in the next week.. I donâ€™t know if I can get any graphics out of it, but itâ€™d be fun for a server at leastâ€¦Â Windows NT 4.0 sp1 should have DirectX 2.0 â€¦Â The pinball game is quite playable (although the colors are all screwed up, due to a pallet glitch in the emulator) so we shall see.
