I heard rumours that MSVC6 does no longer compile since the introduction of YAPF. Could someone confirm and if necessary mark the entry accordingly? Sebastiaan 12:54, 2 June 2006 (CEST)

I know that YAPF is implimented in C++, instead of the rest of OpenTTD, which is in C. I don't see how this could be a problem. Could you please sign you comments like this - ~~~~ - Bruce98 18:18, 2 June 2006 (CEST)
MSVC6 support is dropped. It doesn't compile OpenTTD and it won't do so in the future. However, IIRC MSVC2003 does compile. Darkvater knows more.

Why was it dropped? It doesn't affect me, as I use GCC. Bruce98 20:30, 2 June 2006 (CEST)
YAPF requires C++ template features that MSVC6 does not properly support, and obviously will never support. MSVC2003 should compile, and I know that MSVC2005 does compile. --Hazelrah 05:56, 4 June 2006 (CEST)


Submitting Patches

So I'm confused. This page still lists Sourceforge as the place to put patches. I went to it and there are new patches there. So are we supposed to submit them there or at Flyspray? -- 08:19, 21 July 2006 (CEST)

Reporting bugs?

Are the developers interested in problems other players are having? Shouldn't the FAQ development list a question like this? 07:21, 24 April 2007 (CEST)

The Compiling on MSVC++ link

Can we get it changed to pipe link like the normal ones? I've tried, but it seems that MediaWiki doesn't like the colons (in `Category:') O_o -- Desolator 18:38, 20 January 2008 (CET)

Put a colon at the start of the link if you want to link to a category, like so: [[:Category:Microsoft_Visual_C%2B%2B|Microsoft Visual C++]]
I have made the change in the article. Mintra 21:52, 11 March 2008 (CET)

SVN vs. DVCS (GIT/mercurial/...)

I think there should be some text explaining why SVN is used instead of git/mercurial. Using a DVCS would make it easier to integrate/maintain the various patches that are floating around. I have a local git repository set up where I integrate cherry-picked patches each into seperate branches, and it makes life sooo much easier :-) --Darkstar 09:23, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, that explains it quite nicely. Since I don't use NewGRFs I guess I wasn't biten by the versioning API problems yet (my builds all identify as "SVN version 00000" or something ;-). However I'll keep that in mind in case I have to "fake" an svn revision sometime in the future for NewGRFs. --Darkstar 06:36, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
