Following the instructions at:
https://wiki.mamedev.org/index.php/Buil ... _compilers
and substituting "vs2019" for "vs2017" in make command line,
I created a solution for Visual Studio 2019 (I use Community edition).
In order to speed up the build, I changed all project files to use /MP (Parallel build) command switch in C++ options, but I don't see any significant increase in times.
I'm wondering if there's any other build tips you might recommend to speed it up?
My computer's no slouch, Athlon 3700x 8 core, 4.3Ghz, SSD, 16GB RAM. Have disabled AV so that it doesn't interfere with build.
Here's what I've tried:
When I have Tools | Options set to 16 parallel builds (max my setup supports) I get heap errors - looks like MSBuild runs out of RAM / VM.
I have checked my projects are using 64 bit toolset and I have updated my VS2019 community to very latest patch level.
All projects in solution have /MP switch enabled.
Here's what I'm thinking of trying - but would like your advice if poss before going down the road:
1. enabling precompiled headers
2. enabling minimal rebuild in all projects
3. Installing Incredibuild
Any new tips to speed up build would be appreciated.
