1:52:38mmozeiko Sorry the trick didn't work, it works for editor I use. There is an option to try to use old non-raw string literals: char* shader = STRINGIFY( ... write multiline code here ... ); where STRINGIFY is macro with # preprocesor thing. Compiler will smush multi-line code into one-line string and you'll lose line numbers in error messages, but they don't seem to be used on stream anyway

1:58:28thecrypticmind Hi! Not sure if this might be something for the forums, but I am on Day 60 and I just swapped to develop on my laptop and am noticing that I am missing the frame rate pretty frequently when Sleep is called: it misses with a few ms. My output log is not as smooth as yours with 33.33m/s every log message, but instead it fluctuates a bit over it. Is this something that gets addressed further down in the episodes?
