Windows port for LGames

Right now, I'm working on packaging the whole LGames suite.
Unfortunately, 2 of the Apps I like best, LTris and LPairs, dont have windows ports. They are sourceode and linux only.

So my question is this:

Is there anyone willing and able to port them or help me giving it a try?
Or update LBreakout2 to the latest version?

I emailed the guy in charge and he would be greatful if we could find someone as all the windows ports werent done by him but different people.

So this doesnt mean a life-long commitment Wink

you would rewrite parts of

you would rewrite parts of the code so that instead of using linux system calls, it would use windows ones instead. simeon: have you tried using cygwin?

But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

ok, I tried just compiling

ok, I tried just compiling LTris on cygwin, but it produces a bucketload of errors, so it looks like some form of re-write will be needed. Personally i dont know any C/++, so someone else on the interblag will have to do this.

But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
