Does anyone still read this forum? I'm trying to build the HPB bot in VS 2008 Express, but having difficulty. Can anyone help?

well I think you should describe the problem in more details than just "having difficulty"

Ok, well I installed VS Express 2008, and I also installed the latest platform SDK. I then downloaded the HPB_bot_template_3 zip file from Botman's site, and extracted it to my Half-Life dir. I have the Half-Life SDK installed.

When I open the VS template, it opens correctly, but when I try and build it, I get loads of warnings. However it does get through to the linking stage, at which it stops, and tells me

"Linking...

Anyone know what's going wrong here? Thanks.

well actually it's already successfully built, it's just not automatically installed into the HL directory as expected. You can find the HPB_bot.dll in the Debug folder and that's it.

The warnings are probably originated from the VC6++ project. VC6 and Visual Studio Express use different compilers. The latter is more strict, therefor throwing more warnings.

So why does it keep saying that it can't find the specified path? Thanks for your help, guys.

How's about a quick guide to building the hpb bot in VS Express 2008? I just mean a text file on the HPB Bot page, or a sticky thread here. I'm sure I'm not the only person who would find it useful.

there is a custom build step in the project options, which copies the DLL into the HL installation folder automatically. However the destination path there is different from yours so it complains like that. You can safely ignore it, or remove the custom build steps in project options.

Where should I be looking to change that? Is it in Project/ HPB Bot Properties? Or Project/ Custom Build Rules? Thanks.
