I have found this article in wikipedia and I think it could be of some help in avoiding already-done errors when developing a game.

Best wishes,

RakNet C++ Support / Building RakNet with GCC 4.1.0
« on: February 26, 2006, 03:09:21 PM »
Hello,

I am trying to build RakNet (2.543, even if the readme.txt says 2.542) with CodeBlocks and GCC 4.1.0. Until now, I have made GCC 4.1.0 happy by commentig out some extra qualification errors, but I am stuck here. GCC gives me this error:

Quote
Source\RakPeer.cpp: In member function 'virtual bool RakPeer::Initialize(short unsigned int, short unsigned int, int, const char*)':
Source\RakPeer.cpp:237: error: 'UpdateNetworkLoop' was not declared in this scope

This error comes from here:

Code: [Select]
...
if ( isMainLoopThreadActive == false )
{
  unsigned ProcessPacketsThreadID = 0;
  processPacketsThreadHandle = ( HANDLE ) _beginthreadex( NULL, 0, UpdateNetworkLoop, this, 0, &ProcessPacketsThreadID );

  //BOOL b =  SetThreadPriority(
  // processPacketsThreadHandle,
  // THREAD_PRIORITY_HIGHEST
  // );
...

I was searching for the declaration of processPacketsThreadHandle, but I did not find it. Which is its type?
And what about _beginthreadex?

Any help and/or suggestion would be appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Best wishes,
Michael

Programming / wyoGuide
« on: February 25, 2006, 01:16:36 PM »
Hello,

I have found wyoGuide which seems to be a guide/tutorial for developing well-designed cross-platform applications.

Quote
The main goal of wyoGuide is to show how to develop the GUI of your application suitable for any platform. Development with these guidelines gives your application a professional set of base functionality. Application applying these guidelines should allow for ease of use, so a user might immediately feel comfortable.

IMHO, this guide is also useful for non-GUI applications. Anyway, it is worth reading :).

Best wishes,
Michael

Hello,

I have found this website which provides quick&dirty C++ language conformance tests for the Win32 platform. It could be of some interest for people working with different/several compilers.

Feature Requests / Workspace and Project files for Code::Blocks IDE
« on: February 12, 2006, 04:16:02 PM »
Hello,

I am using Code::Blocks (C::B), an open source and cross-platforming C++ IDE and I would like to ask if it would be possible to have a workspace and project files for that IDE too. C::B supports several compilers (GCC, MS Toolkit 2003, Borland compiler, Digital Mars and others), therefore it could be useful to users working with different compilers (or more compilers at once) :).

Thank you very much.

Best wishes,
Michael
