Re: Visual Studio editing tricks

And a couple more code navigation shortcuts:

Ctrl + K, O - Switches between .h/.cpp
Ctrl + - - Goes "back" (could be to where your cursor was before in current file or to the previous file you were at)

Re: Visual Studio editing tricks

Reminds me of another shortcut I use often: Ctrl + X (with nothing highlighted/selected) - Cuts current line Ctrl + C (with nothing highlighted/selected) - Copys current line Whenever I want to duplicate a line multiple times I use that second one. Something like this: Ctrl + C Ctrl + V (x5) will co...

Re: What to do?

ECS would be another design pattern I can't seem to wrap my head around. I had a little trouble understanding it at first too, what helped me with that was looking at open-source ECS library implementations and example usages of them. In the end, I didn't really like the very strict separation of e...

Re: What to do?

I feel the same way sometimes where I am stuck thinking about how I want to structure my code. Usually solve it in one of 2 ways: 1) Write out how I would want the interface / usage to be before actually writing the code for it, then work around that when implementing it 2) Abandon any thoughts abou...

Re: Can someone help me set up SFML?

I've had troubles with vcpkg too, bit finicky and not always reliable, especially since the ports are all community maintained. Still, when it does work it's 👌

Re: The usefulness of bit packing

Definitely disagree there. If I type Foo and hit my intellisense, it tells me i got 3 bools and tells me their names. EZPZ. With your situation, all I get is <int flags>. Oh great, now I gotta go digging in the docs to try and find this shit. :kms: Flags are easier for skimming code (esp. without a...

Re: Re snek game tutorial 14b.

When you have const objects you can only call their const functions. The issue here is that you have a const board& brd variable but getwidth() is not declared as const . The simple solution here is to just chuck a const on getwidth() Side note: I hate your all no-caps and no-underscores naming styl...

Re: The usefulness of bit packing

I'd much prefer named flags than bool params for functions, even if there's a low amount.

This:

Code: Select all

Foo( FLAG_DELETE_SYSTEM64 | FLAG_ENGAGE_NUCLEAR_REACTOR | FLAG_KILL_EVERYONE );
is sexier than this:

Code: Select all

Foo( true, false, true );
