SGDK and Visual Studio Code template

Post by elefas » Sat Jan 21, 2017 5:24 pm

Hello,

I have setup a small template to work with Visual Studio Code editor.
It includes configuration to detect the include files of SGDK and two tasks for building and cleaning the project. The only prerequisite (apart SGDK and VSCode itself along with the c/cpp extension) is the user to have setup the GDK environment variable.

Anyone interested can check it out here.

cheers,
elefas

I fixed the SGDK 1.30 archive as it was missing ;) Still you can just rebuild the library itself to re generate it (using makelib.gen makefile)

I commented out the include "libres.h" in font.h and it works.
Hope it doesnt do anything important!

Wow, I have Hello World on Megadrive :)

Thank you so much elefas! and thank you for trying Stef. :)

If you take the whole archive from here :
https://github.com/Stephane-D/SGDK/rele ... sgdk130.7z

Anyway the .h is not important by itself as objects exists anyway ;)

Hello Elefas,

First of all, thanks for your efforts. I'm trying to use the template in Windows VSCode but it doesn't work in my config.
After configuring everything as told in the readme.adoc I tried to do "make", but I got:

Code: Select all

cmd /C ${env.GDK}\bin\make -f ${env.GDK}\makefile.gen
The system cannot find the path specified.
I modified $tasks.json ${env.GDK} to %GDK% to try to fix it.
After this modifications I got:

Code: Select all

cmd /C %GDK%\bin\make -f %GDK%\makefile.gen
E:\SGDK/bin/mkdir -p src/boot
E:\SGDK/bin/mkdir -p out
E:\SGDK/bin/mkdir -p out/src
E:\SGDK/bin/mkdir -p out/res
E:\SGDK/bin/ld -T E:\SGDK/md.ld -nostdlib --oformat binary -o out/rom_head.bin out/rom_head.o
e:\SGDK\bin\ld.exe: cannot open linker script file E:SGDK/md.ld: No such file or directory
make: *** [out/rom_head.bin] Error 1
I'm really bad at tooling, can someone help me making it work?.

Thanks :(

Notice how it shows E:SGDK/MD.ld. I'm guessing your GDK environment variable is E:\SGDK, but needs to be E:/SGDK. Some of these programs think a backslash is an escape character instead of a path separator.

Does Vs studio do auto complete in conjunction with the SGDK? I may swap out codeblocks if this is the case.

If you by this means that you can type for an example "VDP_" and get a list of all avaialable commands that starts that way, then yes! You can also right click on a command and choose "goto definition", where there is a little explanation of the function.

As long as you have a project with c/c++ files within, doesn't matter if it compiles or not. To compile select a ' Makefile' project and fill in the paths/exe's.
Are you talking about the "monolith"? I'm in communications with them, just tell me the question or ask yourself. If it's about it's movement: yes it really moves, but at a tremendous speed! From the Sun to Jupiter in less than 2 seconds!
