    I spoke to HyperEye maybe a year ago about this. From what I recall he had told me that Odamex will run and will work with the Classic Joystick, but does not have a menu system and thus boots straight into what ever DOOM WAD file you have in the Odamex folder or what have you.

    I would like to see if I can at least compile this now that I have Devkit Pro installed, but am unsure as to where to begin. Could someone give me a hand?

    Thank you in advance.

    BTW there is a Wii folder in the source...

    I guess the author didn't release a binary because it's incomplete. I know next to nothing about this or the benefits over other doom engine ports.
    Anyway, you need sdl-wii installed apparently. For Windows, open the makefile in Wii folder with programmer's notepad and click make. For linux, open a terminal, cd to the Wii folder and type make.

    Yes, he said he wanted to complete the menu system and add in support for the Wiimote before he made an official release.
    In the mean time I'm wanting to convert my project into a stand alone iWAD and see if I can get it up and running on the Wii.

    Thanks for the help, I'll give this a try!

    Any idea what this error could mean?

    Same error. By changing the makefile, I had undefined references at link time.
    0.5.6 compiled fine except a mistake(?) in i_wii.cpp where "i_main()" should be "I_Main()" instead. However, the dol seems to find "odamex.wad" in root sd and quits.
    The author surely didn't release the port for a good reason. I'll pass on this one.

    Alright, thank you for taking the time out for me.

    Hyper left me with the impression that I could at least compile and run. I'll try to get a hold of him. Perhaps I misunderstood.
