SharpDX bindings where used for some platforms to understand how mapping works using SharpGenTools.


In order to compile, make sure no spaces are present in the solution path otherwise SharpGen will fail to generate bindings. Also, you need to install Visual Studio 2022 with the following components:

  • Visual C++ Toolset Component
