Game Server not building in VS 2017

Post by Drinkie » Sun Nov 25, 2018 1:11 pm

So it's been a couple of years things have happened like my old HDD dying so i lost my old files etc... i am aware that i had a old thread on this subject but since i wasn't sure if necroing it was against the rules or not i decided not to post in it but i decided to try and make a server again however the issue i've been having is again with building the game server i'm getting a few error messages stopping it from being built in both 32 and 64 formats.

I've tried downloading the battleutils file multiple times but it's always the same errors i would be grateful for any help.

Code: Select all

What do those lines look like?

Using my psychic abilities, I'm guessing you modified battleutils.cpp then tried pulling from GitHub, and now the file is conflicted and has a bunch of conflict info in it. Delete the file and pull fresh, there's nothing wrong with the file in the repository.
