compilers? 

Im considering taking my next big step, and trying to compile ScummVM, but am unable to get ahold of visual c++. I found this freeware compiler Dev-C++
at http://www.bloodshed.net/dev/devcpp.html which uses mingw and was wondering if it would work to compile ScummVM?

I just need a little clarification as there are quite a few downloads on each link

-should i get the c++ express or th c# express of microsoft vis. express
- on the mingw download page there are a mind-numbing amount of different files for download, im confused

also i was wondering which one would be 'easyer' for a (semi)complete newb to
get the hang of?
thanks again for all the help

I use MinGW and msys for compiling ScummVM. You have to compile some libs (sdl, vorbis, ogg, flac, mad, mpeg2) before you can compile ScummVM.

If you don't want to compile these libs yourself I could send them to you.

so i need to downlad the mingw and msys files from sourceforge, Is ther anything else i need from there? (other than mad, sdl, etc)
Also are these additilional librarys the same ones that are available from the ScummVM downloads page?

Yes you need MinGW an msys, as I remember you don't needthe other files from the mingw page.

mad, sdl, etc are the same from the scummvm download page, but they are already compiled for mingw.

You can also compile them yourself for mingw. Ogg and vorbis must be configured with --disable-shared

You should try. Also on your earlier question: you need C++, not C#.
