Support for Visual C++

Post by Crush » 04 Jul 2007, 22:59

As you might have noticed there is still a project file for microsoft visual c++ in the svn repository (ManaWorld.vcproj) but it is very outdated (last update was 2005). I recently had the idea that I could download visual c++ express and update the project file. But before I go through all the hassle of getting all the libraries working on it: Is it worth the effort? Is there anyone around here who prefers visual c++ over Code::Blocks or DevCpp?

If not I would like to suggest to delete the project file from the repository because a hopelessly outdated project file hasn't got any use for anyone.

6.0 is the version from 1998 and was known for even having problems on XP. No wonder it is buggy on vista.

I always had the idea to start resuming development using VC mostly because of better debugging tools, so I would be interested in updating/an up to date project. Of course that would mean double work since a MinGW based IDE is still preferrable to create releases.
