For all you programmers out there,

you might be aware of that newer versions of the microsoft visual c++ editor won't compile jka's source files into .dll files.

I'm experiencing the same problem, and this is my first time trying out the editor along with the JKA SDK (im following the tutorial that came with it).

So basically, when trying to Build Solution, it skips all files and builds none.

I heard it was due to some depricated codes, but in the topics where people had the same issue, it either didn't work for them to try and manually fix the code, or someone helpful did it for them and linked out a zip file.

However those files are old and I can't seem to download them.

So anyone, please help me get started :)

Dev C++ is not the standard program for code editing the JKA SDK (it's not compatible) or for a whole lot else for that matter. I recommend Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 or 2008 (2003 is what Raven used, but it works with 2005+2008). You can get the Express Edition for free. There is a lot of reasons why it is superior, but I'll name a few reasons:

- "Find All References" (iirc Dev C++ doesn't have) is extremely useful - You can debug JKA using it - You can open the same file multiple times over in different 'windows', and the save is universal - good for big files - All the other JKA coders use it, so if you have a specific problem with it we can help you.

Dev C++ is better the visual c++ cause it supports c and c++

dev c++ can also open multiple files and it has a debug function too ;) and it has most likely more references ;) and dev c++ is free, ;)

Visual Studio supports C, C++, C#, Basic, etc It's free. It's flexible. It's widely used. The debugging integration is likely far better. It's the industry standard. Everyone else I know uses it, so it's more likely we can help you.

VS > Dev-C++ :D

Visual C++ supports C, C++, Basic, C#, and UnrealScript. I said multiples of the same file. "Find All References" is a tool that finds all references of a function, variable, etc. Dev C++ does not have this. Visual Studio is free too.
