I looked into modding the Source source code and damn... that's a lot of setup required. Here I was, thinking "can't be that hard to add 20 lines of code" and whatchaknow turns out it'd be like 99% setting up the IDE and 1% coding. Lol. Anyway, all tutorials I've seen refer to Visual Studio, now I'm wondering whether the process is easier/harder/considerably different with other IDEs (or without an IDE at all)? As in, writing the code in a regular text editor and compiling it from terminal.
