    Dev Wierdness

    In dev, like i have asked about before, i had a game where the linker copmplained about every call to anyhting outside of the game. All i had to do to fix it was copy the code to a new .dev project. Has anyone else had this problem? Well, i just thought i would let everyone know just in case someone does.

    yeah, ive had that
    i think the linker is screwy, it always seems to revolve around the linker.

    yes. One time I had a tile demo that all of a sudden would come up with illegal call errors when I ran it. So I tried to make a new project and put the source files into it, still didn't work. So I copied and pasted everything into some new files, and it suddenly started to work.

    yes, anytime you start a non-console (aka an app using an api) with dev you have to repeatedly create a new project. simply create the new project over the old project, then copy and paste your .cpp files (or other files) onto the new files. Just as FF said.

    IMO

    I never use projects in Dev because sumthing always ends up screwy I just make each file seperate. Then again I am not as a hardcore programmer as some in here. I have just started like a mounth ago

    Well, when using Allegro (and I'm assuming any other API) you have to create a project. When having a console based app you don't really need to create a project, typically.

    it's not like it messes up very often. I've only encountered this once in the whole year I've been using Dev-C++.

    Well, it does it for me every single time, and I've heard from others that it consistently does it to them, too. Possibly because I still use 4

    I want to get five, but every time i try, i on;y get the exe, which does not some with all the necessary files. I am too lazy to download it until they release a new full version i guess.

    You can get the full version of the newest version (with the compiler and crap) you can get it add the Dev-C++ resource page. I forget the URL, but you can find it on bloodshed's site somewhere. I use 4.9.5.0.

    Yeah dev has some bugs. But here's a tip: when you go to open a project, enter via the .dev file, not the .cpp file. Otherwise the program sometimes freezes.
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }
