Updated the guide with daxtsu's writeup about compiling without FFMPEG with the appropriate credit given.

Thanks for the reminder mate.

Well solarmystic said this in the guide:
Quote:It is not intended to teach one any form of programming and commandline usage beyond the narrow scope of this guide.

I will assume that you have some basic computing knowledge in this guide.
I'm pretty sure he wrote this guide by sacrificing his free time, and even i'm not a programmer myself i can actually follow this guide, so i think he really made this absolutely clear already, i'm just saying that you just have to try to understand his writing better, rather than simply ask him to make a video tutorial (which i think will take a lot of time) considering he is also doing a lot work on developing the emu (again, using his free time) Wink

how about adding in how to use TortoiseGit for people that don't want to use Gitbash

If you're savvy enough to know what TortoiseGit is, how to use it, and prefer it compared to Git Bash, then by all means, go ahead, and skip the Git Bash portion of the guide, or just take whatever relevant info about the git repo (the site for the repo), the submodules and how to go about updating and head straight to the VC++ compiling guide.

I just wanted to make the guide as straightforward as possible for the enduser. Git Bash is pretty staightforward, with no graphical frills, just straight up CLI. Adding in additional guides for every single form of Git interface out there is unnecessary for this rather basic PPSSPP compiling guide.

A git veteran like yourself would probably already know how to do this without my guide for newbies. In that case this guide is probably not aimed at people like yourself.

I've already mentioned that you're free to use whatever form of git you want. The basic principles are still the same either way, CLI or GUI.

i don't need the guide but then some noobs do need the help
as you said you are trying to make the guide straightforward
but then i see that you are starting to add advanced segments to it
so just a thought then

There are many variants of Git to account for. I just picked one which I found the easiest to start off with.

There has been only one thread about compiling on Windows that has opened up since I wrote this guide. The SVN thread was about a user who was confused since we do not use SVN for our purposes, only Git.

The advanced sections are optional fluff written after the main guide is done, which is one uninterupted flow of information with no deviations from start to finish.

I get your point, but if I add TortoiseGit to the guide, I'll have to account for the many other variants of Git too. I think recommending just one app should be sufficient as per the KISS principle.

Logging?

Did you remember to change the build type to Release and Win32/x64 (if your system supports it) as I instructed in the guide?

VC++ is configured to build Debug builds by default, and yes, the logging in debug builds will kill your performance.

You can always disable it in the Developer Options in the emulator though.
