New to decompiling, and code generally. Trying to decompile a windows 3.1 game (text adventure), so I can build it up again. Because at the moment it doesn't work (even on windows 3.1).
This threw an error when decompiling the exe 'an already known error occurred'. Probably not very helpful, but I mention it just in case.
So, it decompiled fine to
.bas files. I compiled the program again in Visual Basic 4, after correcting some syntax problems, but I get a totally non-interactive window in which none of the buttons work.
This makes me think that it needs to talk to the code in the dll, but is not doing so. DoDi won't decompile dlls, and I have yet to find a decompiler which will handle 16-bit (NE/New Executable) dlls.
So, I assume I need to decompile this dll too. How? The game files are in
draquest.zip, which is here archived here.
