Hi Cliff,
I'm feeling ready to start learning to write plugins. My question is, I currently have 2005 Visual Studio Express and it would help alot if you could tell me if this will suit my needs, or which version you feel it would be optimal to use.

Visual Studio 2005 Express should be fine to use.

Try loading up the SDK in it.

Xion is currently compiled with Visual Studio 2003, however I'm looking at moving to 2005 soon, I just have to sort some issues out with Vista first.

So load it up the SDK in 2005 and see if you can compile the example plugins :)

sdk

I'm embarrassed to say if I downloaded the sdk I don't remember it. Is it in one of the older beta version pages?
thanks, xonenine :)

Hi Cliff, Mike, here's my story...

I opened the example vis in 2005 Express, only to be told it would have to be converted before-hand. The converted file shows an empty project, and I'm assuming so far that the conversion is the issue. Am I 'sposed to be able to open the example vis by itself in Studio or no?

At any rate, I can always work with another version if needs be, I've got a copy of C++ 6.0 I bought about 6 or 7 years ago...Or can I run something more compatible? Assume I have access to any product.

thanks again, xonenine :)

I just opened it with 2008 Express, and after conversion the example vis project is by no means empty. All the source files are listed in the solution tree.

I only wish I knew enough C++ to write a plugin :cry:

What Im really asking Mike, is where am I supposed to place the sdk prior to trying to open a vis example. Don't I have to have the sdk somewhere for the assets or whatever to be available?
thanks, xonenine.

You can extract it anywhere really. The conversion should work and fill the file list as OfficerMike said.

The currently SDK uses Visual Studio .Net 2003, however I'm in the process of changing Xion to VS 2005. So if you wait a little while longer I'll be able to release the SDK which is compatible with VS 2005 and you won't need to convert it.
