Good work. Just a quick question though: Why hasnt VS2015 support been finalized/merged? I'm using VS2015 and it works perfectly fine for me.

We haven't had enough time to thoroughly test the binaries, and the feedback regarding the feature/VS2015 branch has been tiny. Furthermore, I just built libjpeg in a quick way to fix the broken binary -- we might recompile it another way (with smaller binary size) before including it into master.

Is there any way I can help at all? Any unit tests for example that I could test? I'd compile the dependencies myself but CMake is really all I know and from what I gathered, the extlibs dont use CMake so I'm at a bit of a loss there unfortunately.

If it helps any, I haven't had any problems with it.

For what it's worth. Me and a friend are both using SFML with VS2015 on windows for our projects. Windows is not the primary platform, but we test there ocasionally and things seem to work.

That's not entirely true, but sure we can go with that. ::)


I just updated the VS2015 branch with smaller sized JPEG libs, if anyone feels like testing! :)

I haven't seen a lot of people giving feedback to that branch, but I have also not been overly active recently, so maybe I missed that. Regarding testing, the first version of libjpeg was broken, it was only recently that I committed another one.

In any case, you can also correct me objectively next time.

I am kinda confused.
The feature/VS2015 branch hasnt been merged into master yet but the download website (http://www.sfml-dev.org/download/sfml/2.3.2/) offers VS2015 binaries.
These binaries dont work for me (atleast the 64bit ones). They have the same linkage issues discussed in the other threads.

The feature/VS2015 branch worked for me when I tested it two weeks ago.

Just because it isn't merged doesn't mean we can't use the feature/VS2015 branch to build some binaries. ;)

Unfortunately it seems that there is still some issues with the static libraries, which I don't fully understand yet, especially because building the examples works flawless, but when you add SFML to VS 2015, somehow the flags don't get set right, or I don't know.
In the meantime you should probably just use the dynamic libs which worked fine for me.

Nice, I will make a parallel install of VS2015 the coming days, I will let you know if everything is fine.

Edit: Just testet 3 small projects with VC14 in debug and release config. Worked without any problems. Seems fine to me.

I'm using SFML in Visual Studio 2015 v140 with static binding just fine. I posted projects that use it in General discussions for an examples. I included the pong example and my own game I'm working on. Game on!
