In Topic: Standard Project Structure Layout

28 October 2014 - 12:19 AM

I started off using the defualt VS behavior: Every file for a project goins into the projects folder.

Then after some time I started looking around at what others are using( like you are ).

 

Then I came up with this:

Project settings(Configuration Properties\General):
	Output directory		: "..\..\..\Build Output\$(Configuration)\$(PlatformShortName)\"
	Intermediate directory	: "..\..\..\Build Output\Intermediate\$(Configuration)\$(PlatformShortName)\$(ProjectName)\"
________________________________

Solution directory structure template:

<Solution Folder>
|
+---Solution : The main solution and project folder.
|	|	<Solution Name> Solution File
|	|
|	+---Engine : The folder that "Engine" projects go in.
|	|	|
|	|	+---<Project Name> Project File
|	|
|	+---Tools : The folder that "Tool" projects go in.

In Topic: The Week of awesome II - The judge Thread!

10 October 2014 - 04:43 AM

 

*cough* kissass *cough* I mean.... yeah GOOD JOB JUDGES!

 

On a serious note, I was a judge for one of the competitions in the past and it sucks. I very much appreciate the time and effort put forth to making this happen.

 

I know this was meant as good-natured ribbing, but just in case anyone else thought there might be an ounce of truth to the joking... Stormynature can't be a kissass because he didn't enter the competition.  Stormynature sponsored the competition with over $200 of his own money and offered words of encouragement on the various dev-journals to all the teams throughout the contest. 

 

I think I already thanked everyone but just in case I haven't... Thanks to the contributors: Stormynature, Lactose!, Orymus3, 0sok, and anonymous people who made up the rest of the prize money. Sponsoring this kind of thing is pretty darn classy. Thanks to the judges: slicer4everAllEightUpswiftcoderAuriochOrymus3 who spent tons of their own time judging all the entries and answering countless questions. Very cool. And thanks/congratulations to all the teams who participated in the event, spending a week of their lives to produce an entry and support the gamedev community. And thanks to all the unnamed support staff (friends and family) that supported all our crazy efforts to produce a game in a week.

I second that!

Are you going to upload to YouTube like the "WoA II" journals ?

Because I generally don't watch videos online, I download them first and then go over them as needed smile.png
