:P Hello everyone! Just wanted to let those who are interested know that Sausage and I have been going through and fixing my tutorials.
So! As of about 5 minutes ago, my "tutorial 1" has been split apart into a good number of separate files.
The vs2008 file is unchanged. (There might be a tweak or two coming in the near future, but nothing drastic.)
The new vs2005 specific file is uploaded and tested at least once. (I cannot test this myself sadly so PLEASE if there are bugs, let me know!)
I'll be making a 'fixed' version for vs2010 in the next day or so (or few hours, depending on my mood ^_^) and then two linux, and a mac tutorial will be made up some time after that. (Yes, I know... I'll probably fix these on chrissy day, how awesome am I?
Anyway. Enjoy! And as usual, thoughts, donations of copious quantities or even just suggestions are welcome!
*edit* Before I forget, I will be going through and making all paths and files as platform agnostic as possible in order to ensure they all 'just work' no matter what. So pointing out any issue there will also be appreciated.
As for msvs2005, I might drop the support for the next release as I don't have it, there has been 2 new versions since and vs 2005 express is getting pretty hard to find. Any objection?
By the way, huge thank you to Grey. These tutorials got me set up in the first place and removed hours of possible frustration for me.
There's nothing worse than starting on a project and spending your first few hours / days just getting the IDE to play nicely.
The only thing I can't do is compiling binaries myself, but if someone volunteers to help me build new binaries for releases (orx, external, tutorials, tools), I'd be fine with that.
Also, vs2010 express is now the one you can find on microsoft server, vs2008 express is more hidden on their site and vs2005 express disappeared.
Honestly I write these things just to teach myself how everything works. I figure if I can keep someone from the frustration of the trial and error approach afterwards, all the better ^_^.
Plus, occasionally it's nice to focus on the project, not the tools!
for me, I am a lover of linux, I will develop game in linux and know little about vs. But my colleague prefer to use vc6.0 (the product of centuries ago)
so it is possible to use orx?
I'd sugggest they use either a newer version of VS / VS Express or MinGW.
Now I've just got to fix the nasty issue with Iarwain's old-gcc/g++ builds for the .so files
*edit* the red arrows of DOOM return!
Btw, which .so issues are you referring to? My memory's gone bad lately! ^^
*edit* also, turns out the latest version of codelite has decided to completely re-do a big chunk of the UI I'm showing off in my tutorials recently... So I'll be updating/replacing/whatever all of that work "soon" heh... this'd almost be funny if it wasn't my work that needs replacing haha
Only needs a monocle and top-hat to complete it!
