# Engine compilation.. (or something to that effect)

## Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been busy programming a game engine over the past month. It can''t do that much at the moment, but it''s continually evolving. However, so far I have about 25+ files (header and source). I use VC++, and the only way I have been able to get the intellisense thing to work is to include ALL of those files into my project. This is really a pain, and I was wondering if there is an easier way to do it. I have lots of classes (i split up my classes one per file), so I would like to avoid adding all the class descriptions to one big file. I was wondering if I could create, say, a DLL or something, so that I could include all of my files and still get intellisense to work. I have organized my files neatly into folders so it is not that hard to add them to my project, but they still take up a lot of room in VC++ (and yes, I organize them into folders in vc++ too.) Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance! Fuzztrek ¬_¬

Intellisense is broken. Get Visual Assist from Whole Tomato.

hate to sound cheap..but is there another way? or is VS.NET better?

Yes, vs.net is much better.

The real question is this: Is Intellisense worth $70-$80 (or whatever Visual Assist is), or is it worth the several hundred or more dollars for visual studio .net ?

Send one of your friends to get hired at Microsoft, and tell him to send you a discounted ($20) version of VC++.NET to you! #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites quote: Original post by Nypyren Send one of your friends to get hired at Microsoft, and tell him to send you a discounted ($20) version of VC++.NET to you!

Nice friend you are!

And to the original post, yes, make DLL''s if its a windows only engine.

VS.net''s Intellisense isn''t much better than what was in VC 6. Visual Assist is much more useful IMHO.
