In Topic: VS2013 IDE/intellisense + VAX + performance (a kind of a rant-question-thing-...

 Runs fast and responsive for me. 

 Just using Update 2 here, Update 3 broke some aspects of initializer list syntax so I've avoided it.

In Topic: Unreal 4: c++ vs blueprints

22 August 2014 - 11:19 AM

 Blueprints are fine for relatively simple things. I've seen some attempts to implement complex logic in Blueprints, it looked a giant pile of spaghetti. 

But if you can do it with Blueprints, you might as well start with that.


Also Epic has a forum for discussion of UE4, you would probably get more information there.

In Topic: So... C++14 is done :O

 I'm pleased with the additions. I already use everything that is available in VS2013, I just wish Microsoft was quicker to support C++11/14.


Ranged for is superior to the iterator method because it is shorter & easier to read. The less code you have to read the easier it is to maintain.

It is also harder to mess it up via a typo.


And soon you will be able to shorten further to:


which the compiler will translate into 

for(auto&& a: vec)


Anyway, are there any game studios actually using C++11/14, I'm pretty tired of working at studios that stick to C++98

In Topic: Visual Studio 2012 ruined everything

Install vs2012 and fix the problems. D3D is now part of the windows SDK.

In Topic: One-Step vs Two-Step Initialization (C++)

18 July 2012 - 12:46 AM

I use one-step almost exclusively, the code is simply cleaner/shorter that way. I do very rarely use two-step, almost always because I wish to reuse memory(say the type in question contains a few dynamic buffers), but even here I hide the fact that it is two step initialization from the user of the object(template magic).

You could easily do the same thing with one-step by using a factory.
