Contributing

Contributions are welcome, MSVC 2015 is currently used to build release DLLs, and is therefore the recommended IDE. If you are not sure what you want to work on take a look at the bug tracker.

Compiling

  • Clone and build the MSVC solution, if the toolkit is installed in an unusual location you might need to change the output directory.
  • Follow the steps listed under installation to get patched exes or manually inject H2Codez.dll into the process at startup.

Reporting Issues

  • Report issues on the bug tracker, please include an explanation of how you caused the issue.
  • If the issue in question causes a crash, a minidump should be generated, hang on to it as it might be needed to fix rare bugs.
  • If in doubt about including a detail, include it as more details about a bug make it easier to understand and fix.
