Building reicast for Windows x64

Post by davediff » Tue Apr 02, 2019 12:22 pm

Hi folks, new to reicast and looking to build master for windows x64. I was able to follow the steps in the readme.md to get things built for android in android studio. I don't see any steps for help getting the windows build going. I opened the .sln file under shell in VS2017 (also tried VS2015 but got same errors). Errors I'm seeing under core directory lead me to believe I should be compiling with gcc, but still confused because I'm seeing macros referencing MSVC . Any tips appreciated and i'm happy to update the readme.md! FYI I'm also in discord chat and asked this on the #learning channel if you have an questions about my setup.

I got some help over on discord and was able to successfully build on Windows using msys2. I'll update this post with the full instructions shortly

Actually basic visual studio setup is enough to build Reicast. What errors exactly do you have? Can you copy them there?
