It's funny how lazy we get thanks to new tools. I'm just so used to Visual Studio handling all the build stuff for me that I totally didn't even think about using a simple makefile. And it actually is nice to have totally control over the build again. There are so many times that VS does weird build stuff that I want to change but can't find the right checkbox in the 3000+ checkboxes I have available to me. Of course I'm not ready to go down that road just yet. Dealing with a handful of files is easy enough. Throwing together my engine library is a little more than I want to tackle right now.
So now that I have everything building and the Lua stuff fully integrated my next task is to write a small sample that uses the scripting. After that I am done adding new systems to my engine. Could that mean I can actually start on a new game?? Wouldn't that be fun! :)
