Compiling and running older versions of Torque 3D with Visual Studio 2015 (On Windows 10)

by on Jan.09, 2016, under Miscellany, Software and Games, Tutorials

Having recently moved to Windows 10, I had to solve a few fairly minor issues when compiling Torque using the new 2015 edition of Visual Studio 2015. The current version of T3D (3.6.1) seems to compile fine, however, projects built with older versions don’t. Since I’m sure many developers, like me, are still working with […]

I have created a small program to automatically convert all of the raw data from the Arduino Lepton project into a small, 80×60 .BMP file. I used the easyBMP library for the actual bitmap file handling, and a handy HSVtoRGB function that I found online to do to the HSVtoRGB conversion. I have created a file […]
