Anyone out there any good at reverse engineering and ASM stuff? (specifically in a Renegade context)

I have a function that, thus far, I am having BIG problems reverse engineering (very unusual for me given how much I know about the Renegade engine) and I want to see if there is someone out there who can help me figure it out.

Do you just need help trying to figure out what they are attempting to do from the assembly? I don't know much about the internals of the Renegade engine but I can understand x86 ASM and usually decode a stack frame. I'm a computer engineer by trade and work a ton with PPC/VLE and EABI but it all works generally the same.

Turns out the function I am having trouble with is in fact correctly reverse-engineered, compiler issues are the real cause of the problem.

Brings back memories from my compiler design class I took.
