Plugin

Post by im fine u? » Thu Feb 23, 2006 10:44 pm

Ok, I heard that plugins are written in C, this is fine, as I know the language, but, when i open the code for other's plugins in my text editor, the code is a bunch of mixed up ASCII.

Who can understand that? And how do I write a plugin?

thanks

Plugins are written in C++(right?) as that is what the game is written in.
Games don't make people violent, lag does.

Are you opening the .dll (I think) or the actually plug-in source?

That won't work. :D

You need to download the bzflag source if you wish to see the plugin source.

moved to plugins

im fine u?
the dll and .so files are the compiled versions of the plugins. You want the source C++ code. I would think you would know this if you knew the language.
