[00:20:58] --> Colourless has joined #Pentagram
[00:20:58] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Colourless
[00:26:19] <Colourless> there is a readme file explaining how to setup pentagram with MSVC Express
[00:28:05] <Colourless> building for AMD64 will only work IF you follow the instructions to the letter in building_msvc.txt
[00:28:36] <Colourless> testarch.cmd probably has a bug and should assume that if %CPU% isn't set that it should default to i386
[00:30:20] <Colourless> the %CPU% environment variable is set by the Windows Platform SDK
[00:32:19] <Colourless> incidently, the Platform SDK is required to build pentagram under MSVC Express anyway (as has been discovered)
[00:34:24] <Colourless> but the %CPU% env var is only set if you run the SetEnv.cmd
[00:34:46] <Colourless> in the way shown to compile for AMD64
[00:35:51] <Colourless> also advice: Do not compile pentagram for AMD64. It's mostly there because I could do it. SDL support is not complete so I do not recommend it. Compile using i386
[00:47:00] <Colourless> also committed a fixed testarch.cmd file
[01:00:54] <jargon> Colourless still says missing windows.h
[01:02:32] <jargon> and still says %CPU% is unset
[01:03:54] * jargon reads building_msvc.txt again
[01:05:17] <jargon> "Rebuilding should be done in
[01:05:18] <jargon> this order: zlib, libpng, SDL, freetype, SDL_ttf.
[01:05:36] <jargon> o.O
[02:05:52] <SB-X> :)
[02:18:33] <servus> Colourless: MSVC Express doesn't support AMD64, and I already mentioned the Platform SDK... a few times : o)

[03:51:55] <watt> Howdy folks!
[03:52:10] <watt> Colourless: nice compile warning! :-)

[05:14:33] <Colourless> <servus> Colourless: MSVC Express doesn't support AMD64, and I already mentioned the Platform SDK... a few times : o) << yes well sometimes things just need to be said again... and again...
[05:15:50] <Colourless> unofiically you cant get express to compile for AMD64 because the Platform SDk comes with the AMD64 C++ compiler and you just need to tell VC Express not to use the default C++ compiler
[05:16:40] <Colourless> tis explained in the "AMD64 Building+Cross Compiling" section in my building_msvc.txt
[05:17:36] <Colourless> it's a complicated set of instructions to be sure
[05:18:53] <Colourless> the fact that installing the VC Express debugger supports debugging AMD64 programs is telling
[05:21:19] <Colourless> odd fact, the platform SDK comes with the MFC and ATL headers and libraries for AMD64 and you can compile MFC apps using VC Express, provided you try to do it for AMD64, even though VC Express doesn't come with MFC :-)
[05:21:53] <servus> I think "Just do i386" is still the best choice, no? : o)
[05:22:01] <Colourless> yes :-)
[05:22:40] <servus> I can't get Pentagram to compile on Turbo C. Can you help?
[05:22:40] <Colourless> http://www.devx.com/amd/Article/21313 << instructions work for VC Express too
[05:22:53] <Colourless> pfft, i can't run turbo c
[05:22:54] <servus> I already bought MSVC2003 Pro, no need. *grumbles*
[05:24:19] <Colourless> vc express's debugger also natively supports debugging AMD64 programs too, so if things are setup right it's actually fairly painless
[05:24:34] <Colourless> but setting things up right is the problem :-)
[05:25:25] <Colourless> one of these days i really need to buy VS 2005
[05:25:53] <Colourless> too expenive though on my currently non existant budget
