I'm using XP64 (Server 2003) as my main dev box. But yes, vs2005 actually works on Windows 8! :)

You'd be more in awe if I told you I'm using QuickGUI on Ogre 1.7.4 in commercial product that has sold roughly 10,000 copies in a year. As that 90s female RnB band, TLC, once sang... "Don't go chasing technology. Please stick to that old code you're used to."

I am also still using VC2005.. but now it mostly to maintain the old code. The new project, is probably going to use VC2013, but 2005 is so much more convenient..

That's why I'm starting with me

I don't like to change tools unless it is really necessary *and* I have lots of free time ahead. It's a nasty habit I got from my day job. We have some projects we are still maintaining with Borland C++ :D

While the interface got slower (been downhill since vs2008) every compiler has produced better code. I've gotten better framerates in Ogre for each new VS compiler.

Release builds fine though, so I am using that in the meantime... Just curious if someone was able to work around this issue.

Also, is anyone working on the D3D11 support? From a quick look into "FindDirectX11.cmake" it seems the fix should be quite trivial. I can contribute it, but I am pretty sure someone else is doing it already, right?
Yeah this happened to me when I tried to build SDL2 along with the other dependencies.
Disable SDL2 in Cmake when generating the dependencies and built it separately using the provided solution in the VisualC folder of SDL2.

When configuring Ogre in Cmake I used the setup :

Code: Select all

SDL2MAIN_LIBRARY ..\SDL2\VisualC\Win32\Debug\SDL2main.lib
SD2_INCLUDE_DIR ..\SDL2\include
SDL2_LIBRARY_TEMP ..\SDL2\VisualC\Win32\Debug\SDL2.lib

And for more info about building SDL2 with VS you can also read the VisualC.html in the SDL2 folder.
Hi,
how i add

Code: Select all

    SDL2MAIN_LIBRARY ..\SDL2\VisualC\Win32\Debug\SDL2main.lib
    SD2_INCLUDE_DIR ..\SDL2\include
    SDL2_LIBRARY_TEMP ..\SDL2\VisualC\Win32\Debug\SDL2.lib
i selct "add entry" in cmake and path?

Hello, all

I know it's a few months on, but I've just begun using the latest version of Visual Studio.

I wrote an article about my experiences building Ogre 1.9 I thought I'd share:

Hello, has anyone found an issue with the D3D_FEATURE_LEVEL_11_1 not being found in OgreD3D11RenderSystem.cpp on Win10/vs2015?

I don't have any problems building Ogre 1.9, 1.10, 2.0 and 2.1. I'll release the files during this week in my build thread.
