Visual Studio alternative?

Recommended Posts

nitanmarcel

Hi! Is there any alternative IDE to Visual Studio? I just starting modding the game and so far it's a pain in the a**. Not because of my C# knowledge but of this stupid IDE Microsoft is so proud of. It eats 0% CPU and 604 mb of memory but every 5 seconds when I type something it stops working. And it's not affecting only the IDE but my whole keyboard. I can click though windows but for 3 seconds I can't type nothing at all.

 

 

This happens a lot when the IDE tries to load the autocomplete.

 

Is there anything I could use? Maybe VS Code or Rider or CLion. Anything but not VS.

 

Thanks!

Have you tried the Visual Studio Express editions at all? Express is a much lighter install that doesn't contain as much bloat, it might be that bloat that causes the problem. I have a problem where at a random point after loading or creating a project, the whole IDE will freeze for up to 20 seconds. If I haven't saved the new project, it will quite happily just dump anything I have done in it. This happens on Community 2015, 2017 and 2019.

 

In my opinion, Community edition contains a whole ton of things the typical hobbyist developer doesn't need, like Azure, connectivity, extensions etc... they're just not needed. They have an Express edition for 2017 but that's the last Express edition they will release. You don't need anything later than that for modding, I use VS2015 Community because 2017 and 2019 are garbage in my opinion and 2015 is the last version with an installation ISO. If my personal circumstances were different, I would uninstall Community and go back to Express but it's too late in the day, so I'll suffer with what I have.

 

Do a complete uninstall of whatever VS you are currently using and then get 2015 Express (or 2017 Express), see if that's any different. Make sure to get rid of all traces of the previous version... if you can.

 

I don't have personal experience with VS Code but from what I read, it seems more file-based rather than project based, so not sure how suitable it is for modding. If you have a powerful enough PC, look into setting up a virtual machine in VMWare, that's a great way to try software without risking your main OS with left-overs from a half-assed uninstall like Microsoft products usually do.
