The attached patch should fix the issue, I hope. But I haven't had a chance to try it out, and I am hesitant to commit it without any testing.

comment:2 by lordhoto, 14 years ago

That indeed fixes the build. Though looking a bit into it, that seems to cast the "const" away rather cruelly, though that does not give any errors/warnings for me. I'm not sure whether it would be nicer to use const_cast for that though.

Anyway I don't have time currently to play some Tinsel game to test whether everything works fine. I might do try DW2 a bit next week....

Ah, it's not necessary to cast away any const-ness: In ResSoundReel, we just want to read an int, so casting to "const int *" is fine. In the other two places, it wants to cast "param" to a pointer to a pointer, so once again it would be fine to leave the constness as-is.

I just updated your patch to include const in the casts. That looks a bit cleaner to me at least and I'm not sure if more strict compilers will complain about the "const-away" cast otherwise.

I just reviewed Lorhoto's latest patch, and it all seems fine. If it fixes the compiler errors when using strict mode, I'd say go ahead and commit it.

I committed my version of Fingolfin's patch, thus I'm assigning this to Fingolfin.
