    Hey guys. I haven't coded for fun in years [I do enough of it at work, not in C though], but some ideas I've had recently have inspired me to get back into it. Basically, this weekend, I want to download everything I need to code on the Wii and dive in headfirst. My questions:

    What IDE do you use, and why do you like it? Other than notepad [​IMG]
    What compilers, libraries and other dependencies do I need to snag?
    What are some apps with good source that I can study, preferably something with intelligible comments? I'm wanting to do things with IOS, tickets, etc. Don't want to show my hand just yet though. [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    Basically, get the devkitPro Updater, install devkitPPC + libogc (+ Programmer's Notepad) and there you got everything you need to start..

    any IDE ive tried works fine for compiling. as long as you have set the devkit stuff up, you should be fine.

    personally i use qt Creator in linux and programmer's notepad in XP and devkitPPC r19 and whatever the latest devkitARM is. i keep a copy of older libogc around in case i want to compile older projects without having to edit them to work with the newer libs.

    I have Devkitpro and Notepad++ on my Windows machine. I've used Programmer's Notepad and it's not too bad, but I'm just used to Notepad++
