I'd guess they'd bash you for allowing malware/adware/etc. to ship with the installer for those unfortunate enough to click the wrong option and have it installed on their system.

That is a really bad and shameful issue.

You should make sure to entirely remove ALL of the malicious content shipped with the installer if not done so already,they might forgive you too.

It was added for another developer, but yes it is not maintained. Actually he upgraded the original solution, so I renamed it to visual studio 2010, then put my original solution back with vs2008. So mine did not get overwritten again.

If you want to fix it you should be able to copy the visual studio 2008 one then just edit the file and change:
Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 10.00

to
Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 11.00

Just tested -- doesn't work.

I deleted 2010,
copied 2008,
renamed 2008 to 2010
edited "Version 10.00" to "Version 11.00" just like you said.

What happens is VS2010 immediately says it needs to be converted to a 2010 style project.

It's the same as before when I edited your 2010 makefile and replaced all the ".vcxproj" file extensions with ".vcproj" in a text editor--it just recursively keeps on saying that the 2010 project needs to be converted to a 2010 project, until I resign to setting them to look for the ".vcxproj" extension instead.

I fear that Visual Studio 2010 is designed to recognize any project file, no matter what version, which attempts to look for files of *.vcproj extension, automatically as outdated...your only solution might be to delete the VS2010 makefile and just forget about it, or start maintaining .vcxproj files alongside the .vcproj ones in your repo.

Well...which is the lesser evil?

Just getting to stick my beak in here, Projects 64 builds fine off of Visual Studio 2013. Mind you that's off my own repo but I cant remember having to change anything to get it to build under it. (Though i did remove glide and nrage from the build process, no point if your interest is only in the emulator.)

You may agree with me on the possibility that it is, but it's not possible to make a pull request removing the 2010 makefile if zilmar doesn't think it's a waste of time, and it's not possible to make a pull request fixing the 2010 makefile to work if zilmar DOES think it's a waste of time. I just want to know why keep it in the repository--should we be fixing it, or removing it?
Rofl, oops . Well it definitely needs fixing . Have you tried just running the 2008 makefile? Me and Tarek got it working by doing that. It should automatically convert the 2008 one to 2010 (if you opened the 2008 sln file in MSVC 2010).

k, just to make sure I checked for an alternative option--for the hell of it i tried renaming all the .vcproj files to .vcxproj extension and then loading 2010 project, that didn't work out any better than just changing the version number of the 2008 file. Either way, MS seems determined to make having portable VS2008 files a pain in the ass, and it seems like the presence of that 2010 .sln file may need to be ignored entirely or deleted from the repository.

Well at least now that I have an explanation of what's up with the confusion behind that at least I can breathe easier about the 2010 thing and leave it alone for now I guess.

And here's just what personally I think about your idea: For the past 8 years, he's been getting bashed hundreds of times by hundreds of people, due to loads of things including but not limited to the donation system and the ads replacing it. Doesn't exactly phase him very much from what I've seen after all those years of him getting flamed over all of that kind of shit, so if it doesn't change anything at all about him or even provoke any reactions beyond him having curiosity of why they're mad, let's say you get your wish granted--everybody in the community flames him. If it never changed anything to begin with, how can you even tell it was granted?

See even if I install VS 2008 it still gives me shit if I try to build.

All the other stuff loaded though. I could always try to do blind commits like warning fixes (those are seriously spamming my output window), but it helps to verify the solidity of my changes by actually running the result. >.>

And yeah, I tried just opening the 2008 project in 2010. It succeeds in building some of them, but fails to link 3 of them...here's the compiler log I had in VS2010 when trying to build Project64 just using that.
https://gist.github.com/cxd4/a0bbbabf9d2623c1a2b4

Honestly, I'd rather just use Visual Studio 2008 like zilmar is using to minimize the discrepancies/possible miscommunications when trying to attempt changes. But I guess VS Express != VS and I don't know the first thing about what the hell Microsoft means by express anyway.

Seems like the solution folders aren't supported in the Express versions of Visual Studio.

I would like to bash HLE in 2015, maybe Jabo's plugins, and I'd like to bash whoever designed Glide64 for PJ64, because it's definitely faster than the original glide64 final version. But it's designed specifically for PJ64 2.x and I can only assume by that, it uses the rsp 1.7. Id be really nice to use it with Haxatard's emulator. Specifically for Zelda, because on 2.1 using Glide64 for PJ64 it magically it doesn't lag at all, even when you are BombHovering while facing an open world like clocktown with characters and objects all over the place.

As zilmar the great creator of the legendary audio plugin, I think it's only right for people to bash you since you are the creator of the mainstream (not so much anymore lol) emulator. You have an obligation to this emulator, it should be a higher priority than your social life.

Also you have no idea how much rage and anger boils inside of me when I see people using Bizhawks not realizing it's just a Mupen64plus gui. Why can't you just make PJ64 2.x acceptable by ZSR or SRL.
