I was going to post a reply to my last thread, but it's been retired. I'm still having issues with 64-bit compiling, this time on a much simpler project (I gave up with x64 on my larger project). I get the exact same error message: DruinkEdit.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __CxxFrameHandler3 I can't disable exceptions, since then I get a bunch of errors about exceptions being disabled comming from the STL. Even this simple program doesn't link:
#include <windows.h>
#include <string>

static void ErrorBox(const std::wstring& strError)
	MessageBox(NULL, strError.c_str(), L"Error", MB_OK | MB_ICONERROR);


With the following errors:
------ Build started: Project: bar, Configuration: Release Win32 ------

Anyone got any [more] ideas? EDIT: It links fine if I remove the STL stuff and don't use any exceptions. But that's not very useful...

It looks to me like it simply isn't linking the libs into the rest of the code. Which seems strange if it can include standard libs. I am in no way meaning to insult you but just thought I'd try a memory test, did you check and insure the libs you're using are included in the project?

Since STL deals with templates perhaps that has something to do with it. Have you tried compiling using a library that doesn't use templates? Not that this is a long term solution but it may help isolate or define the problem.

Yup, it's only linking in the standard libs. I tried creating an application not using the STL, and that works fine. An empty application with exceptions (try, catch, throw) in it also won't link.

That won't affect anything, it's a link problem rather than a compile problem.

Tried it, no difference.

Stupid question, but are you including the x64 versions of the standard libs? I'm new to the x64 platform myself, however I do know that a x64 application cannot link to an x86 dll (and vice versa). If I understand it correctly, it is because the 32 bit applications must be executed by the WOW64 service. In order to provide linking between the two, it would be quite a costly operation. I would imagine that an x64 app could not link to previously compiled x86 lib's because of the differences in code generation between the two. Not sure if this helps, you may even have looked into this already.

can you please post you complete compilation and ofcourse linking line(s) ...

may be he links to the rwong libraries?
im just guessing that the standard setup links to the 32bit version and thus its crashing.

(and yes i have no visual studio 2005 avail, to try it myself)

did you set up the correct library and include directories in your settings ? ( i remember, that there are some subdirectorys with "x64" in it.)

... why is there a penguin at the title (without this penguin i probably would have never whatched this one :lol:)

All the compiler directories are set to the /win64/amd64 folders where possible (E.g. E:\Microsoft Platform SDK\Bin\win64\AMD64).

My compiler line is:
/Od /I "E:\Source Control\DruinkClient\/" /D "WIN32" /D "_DEBUG" /D "_WINDOWS" /D "_CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE" /D "_CRT_NON_CONFORMING_SWPRINTFS" /D "_UNICODE" /D "UNICODE" /FD /EHsc /MDd /GS- /GR- /Fo"Debug x64\\" /Fd"Debug x64\vc80.pdb" /W4 /WX /nologo /c /Wp64 /Zi /TP /errorReport:prompt

And my linker line is:
/OUT:"E:\Source Control\DruinkClient\Debug x64\DruinkClient.exe" /INCREMENTAL /NOLOGO /MANIFEST /MANIFESTFILE:"Debug x64\DruinkClient.exe.intermediate.manifest" /DEBUG /PDB:"e:\Source Control\DruinkClient\Debug x64\DruinkClient.pdb" /SUBSYSTEM:WINDOWS /MACHINE:X64 /ERRORREPORT:PROMPT kernel32.lib user32.lib gdi32.lib winspool.lib comdlg32.lib advapi32.lib shell32.lib ole32.lib oleaut32.lib uuid.lib odbc32.lib odbccp32.lib

I'm using VC2005 Professional if it makes a difference (Which does support x64).

well i dont understand much of this, but i doubt that this is everything ...
e.g. where is the linking of this crt stuff?

can you enable verbose output or sth like that?
or what does you build log say? (post it)

and did you try it without unicode? (at least i think that this "w"-stuff is unicode)

e.g. my gcc (amd64 ubuntu) says:

#include <string>

int main( int argc, char **argv ) {

std::string s("asdf");

return 0;

      Hello Guys!
      Please share your experience, where is it better to find sales manager  specialists for indie team of 6 + people(remotely)?
      Maybe someone has a good experience of cooperation with finding projects through sale managers(USA and Canada)?
      In our team more than 6 developers. We are working since 2014 now we are looking for projects mainly on upWork and Unity Connect.
      But that's not enough 
      This is the site of our team https://www.sixteensq.com/             
      Thank you

      Hi and thanks for reading, I have an issue with this reactive crosshair script, everything works fine until I start changing the offset. Give the script a go and you will see what I mean, when I do SetOffset(0f); it doesnt always set back to the origional state, if anyone can spot a fix I'd be super appreciative!
      using System.Collections; using System.Collections.Generic; using UnityEngine; public class ReactiveCrosshair : MonoBehaviour { [SerializeField] GameObject c_limb_prefab; private float center_offset = 0f; private float current_offset = 0f; private float max_offset = .5f; private int number_of_limbs = 4; private float limb_length = .05f; private float limb_width = .005f; private List<GameObject> c_limbs = new List<GameObject>(); public void SetupCrosshair(){ for (int i = 0; i < number_of_limbs; i++) { GameObject line_go = (GameObject)Instantiate (c_limb_prefab); line_go.transform.SetParent (this.transform); Vector3 limb_pos = new Vector3 (0f,0f,0f); //line_go.transform.position = limb_pos; line_go.transform.localPosition = limb_pos; LineRenderer line = line_go.GetComponent<LineRenderer>(); line.startWidth = limb_width; line.positionCount = 2; line.SetPosition (0, line_go.transform.localPosition + new Vector3(center_offset, 0f, 0f)); line.SetPosition (1, line_go.transform.localPosition + new Vector3(center_offset + limb_length, 0f, 0f)); line.useWorldSpace = false; c_limbs.Add(line_go.gameObject); } if (c_limbs != null) { OrientLimbs (); SetOffset (0f); } } public void OrientLimbs(){ for (int i = 0; i < c_limbs.Count; i++) { float rotation_step = 360f / (float)c_limbs.Count; c_limbs [i].transform.RotateAround (c_limbs[i].transform.position, c_limbs[i].transform.forward, 90f + (rotation_step * (float)i)); } } public void SetOffset(float _current_spread){ float offset = Mathf.Lerp (0f, max_offset, _current_spread); for (int i = 0; i < number_of_limbs; i++) { if (offset > current_offset) { Vector3 pos = c_limbs [i].transform.position + (c_limbs [i].transform.TransformDirection (Vector3.right) * offset); c_limbs [i].transform.position = pos; } if (offset < current_offset) { Vector3 pos = c_limbs [i].transform.position - (c_limbs [i].transform.TransformDirection (Vector3.right) * offset); c_limbs [i].transform.position = pos; } } Debug.Log ("SetOffset() offset: " + offset.ToString () + " _current_spread: " + _current_spread.ToString() + " localPos: " + c_limbs[1].transform.localPosition); current_offset = offset; } }

      So, as the title says i am trying to figure out a good way sync all that information with other players in Unity. My problem is that i can't come up with a good solution since i am used to creating classes for everything e.g. attachments are its own class and then the weapon would save a reference to that attachment. But since you can't send custom classes over [Command] & [ClientRPC] i am a little stuck. A solution for this would be giving each attachment for a slot a unique ID and then passing the ID to other player but i feel like that is very error prone if other ppl add a new attachment or the IDs get mixed up.
      Is there a "standard" way that this is usually done that i am missing?
      I am fairly new to programming so any help is appreciated!

      I'm looking for any team / people that need a programmer for their project. I'm looking to expand my portfolio which you can see Here. I'm more experienced with Unity but I can spend the time to learn new Engines if that's your preference. I have worked on Unreal Engine 4 before but I might take some time to re-learn it, if the project requires it. Feel free to DM here or use the contact info on my website.

      I'm working on a system for my game that will allow the player to stack pick ups in a queue. As one pick up expires, the next automatically activates. I'm having an issue though where if I pick up the first one, it activates fine, but if i pick up a second directly after it, it overrides the first one, activates the second one, and then once it has run it's course, everything goes back to normal gameplay, no first pick up. I'm not sure why this is happening. Hopefully someone can spot what I'm doing wrong in my code.
      Here is the code for the pick up manager:
      // Update is called once per frame void Update () { if (pickUpQueue.Count != 0 && !pickUpActive) { pickUpActive = true; pickUpQueue[0].ActivatePickUp(); } DeactivatePickUp(); } void DeactivatePickUp () { if (pickUpQueue.Count != 0 && pickUpActive) { Destroy (pickUpQueue [0]); pickUpQueue.RemoveAt (0); pickUpActive = false; } } And here is the PickUp:
      public override void ActivatePickUp () { ball.GetComponent<Ball>().Speed = 2.0f; //increase ball speed... ball.GetComponent<Ball>().StartCoroutine(timer); //...set time that power up is active }  
      There is also a Base Pick Up:
      public void OnCollisionEnter2D (Collision2D collision) { Vector2 tweak = new Vector2 (Random.Range(0f, 0.2f),Random.Range(0f, 0.2f)); this.gameObject.GetComponent<Rigidbody2D>().velocity += tweak; //if the pickup makes contact with the paddle or ball.... if (collision.gameObject.tag == "Paddle" || collision.gameObject.tag == "Ball") { GameObject.FindObjectOfType<GameManager>().GetComponent<PickUpManager>().pickUpQueue.Add(this); Destroy(gameObject); //...and finally destroy power up object } } As a side note, I am trying to find a solution to this that will work for all of my pickups. Some pickups are ammo based, some are timed.

      Hello, my name is Mason, and I've been working on a Quake style arena shooter about destroying boxes on and off for about a year now. I have a proof of concept with all of the basic features, but as an artist with little programming skill I've reached the end of my abilities as a programmer haha. I need someone to help fix bugs, optomize code, and to implent new features into the game. As a programmer you will have creative freedom to suggest new features and modes to add into the game if you choose to, I'm usually very open to suggestions :).
      What is required:
      Skill using C#
      Experience with Unity
      Experience using UNET (since it is a multiplayer game), or the effort and ability to learn it
      Since the game currently has no funding, we can split whatever revenue the game makes in the future. However if you would perfer I can create 2D and/or 3D assets for whatever you need in return for your time and work.
      It's a very open and chill enviornment, where you'll have relative creative freedom. I hope you are interested in joining the team, and have a good day!

      Is there a way to automatically change the start position of an animation? I have a bunch of animations set up on 3D models in unity. The issue is that I need to move the 3D models, however when I do so the animation start positions are not updated and I have to do it manually.

      Changing the transform of key frames is time consuming with the amount of animations I have, so I was wondering if there was a way to do it automatically?

      hey all! We are looking for members for our Unity horror game! 
      Here’s the story:
      After a deadly virus plunges the world into chaos killing 85% of the human population there are now what they call “zones” these zones are watched very closely by the surviving government, people are checked every day for the virus, even if you touch the spit or any human waste or fluids of the victim who is infected, you will die. But one day, people in the west zone start to go missing, 1 woman goes outside the walls to uncover the mystery, is there more to the virus than meets the eye?, That is where your story starts.
      This game is not a long development game, I have loads other game ideas,
      I will also allow you to have a bit of creative freedom if you wish to add or share a idea!
      And no, it’s not a zombie game lol I feel like zombie games are too generic, in this game you will encounter terrifying beasts!
      There is some concept art one of our concept artists have made
      If interested email liondude12@gmail.com

      GOVERNOR is a modernized version of the highly popular series of “Caesar” games. Our small team has already developed maps, written specifications, acquired music and performed the historical research needed to create a good base for the programming part of the project.

      Our ultimate goal is to create a world class multi-level strategic city building game, but to start with we would like to create some of the simpler modules to demonstrate proof of concept and graphical elegance.


      We would like programmers and graphical artists to come onboard to (initially) create:

      A module where Province wide infrastructure can be built on an interactive 3D map of one of the ancient Roman Provinces.
      A module where city infrastructure can be built on a real 3D interactive landscape.
      For both parts, geographically and historically accurate base maps will be prepared by our team cartographer. Graphics development will be using Blender. The game engine will be Unity.


      More information, and examples of the work carried out so far can be found at http://playgovernor.com/ (most of the interesting content is under the Encyclopedia tab).


      This project represents a good opportunity for upcoming programmers and 3D modeling artists to develop something for their portfolios in a relatively short time span, working closely with one of Canada’s leading cartographers. There is also the possibility of being involved in this project to the point of a finished game and commercial success! Above all, this is a fun project to work on.


      Best regards,

      Steve Chapman (Canadian Map Makers)
