Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

I had that problem (cant open zlib_64.lib) havent extracted the second of the required packages. Since u got more errors than me u forgot the required packages all together?

I deal all the times with split packages so i thought it would extract both packages with just extracting the first. No error from the generate project files but i got the error for cant open zlib_64.lib when trying to build.

Its an easy made mistake that took me a good nights sleep to realize. Because build error aggrevate me ;D

So make sure u extract both packages one at a time and of course in the right folder /engine to engine (so the content of engine goes into engine and not engine into engine!) and the other 2 side by side to engine folder not in it.
