SFML 2.2 Visual Studio Project Template
« on: January 11, 2015, 07:23:09 pm »
Hey guys i want to share my project template with you.
I used Microsoft Visual Studio 2013, i do not know if it works with lower versions. Feel free to test :)

Basic Installation
Download SFML 2.2 32-bit and 64-bit: http://www.sfml-dev.org/download/sfml/2.2/
Extract the Folder from the 32-bit Zip File to C:\SFML\ . (Create this Folder "SFML" if not exist!)
Now it should look like this: C:\SFML\SFML-2.2\(bin, lib folders ...)
Create a new Folder in C:\SFML, name it SFML-2.2_x64.
Now open the 64-bit Zip File and enter the SFML 2.2 Folder (in the Zip file) and extract the whole data into
Now it should look like this: C:\SFML\SFML-2.2_x64\(bin, lib folders ...)

Now download my Template files: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/42682951/SFML/VS2013%20Template/SFML-2.2%20Game.zip
(VirusTotal: https://www.virustotal.com/de/file/c66c9b677fdbccba54d1f346fb80efdeefabbfdb4434c8bb318d9b2b10a33818/analysis/1421000359/)

Now you have 2 Options:
Option 1: You want to have a Category like   (New Project)->Visual C++ -> SFML -> SFML 2.2 Game
Option 2: You want it without a category like (New Project)->Visual C++ -> (Scroll down and find) SFML 2.2 Game

Installation for Option 1:
Search your Visual Studio installation Path.
Go to  {InstallationPath}\VC\vcprojects.
Now create a Folder and name it SFML.
Extract my ZIP file to this new SFML Folder and delete the Mytemplate.vstemplate File.
If you will not delete it you will have 2 Template Items instead of 1.
Done :) Have fun.

Installation for Option 2:
Copy my Zip file (NOT the Data in the ZIP) to :
C:\Users\{YOUR USERNAME}\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Templates\ProjectTemplates
The example above is the standard path...
Done :) Have fun.
