Can someone explain Community Script Hook V .NET 2 versus 3

  • I have both installed but in the dozens of fully functional scripts I've created myself I've never referenced 3, only 2.

    At one point i did reference 3 as well as 2 and the compiler spewed out errors...i think it was ambiguous errors.

    Recently I just downloaded a sample project from Github and was surprised it only referenced 3.

    Can someone clarify the differences between both dlls?

    v2 is just tagging along these days and the API doesn't get updated anymore, just fixed when broken.
    v3 is the main branch and has new features

    Only reference one - and I'd say just reference v3, as there's no real reason to stay on v2 unless you're maintaining a large, older script.

  • @ikt Thank you. I had noticed, looking at the .xml files, that V2 just seemed to be a subset of V3. The former having about 16K lines, the latter about 22K lines.
    What's confusing is why crosire still packages both in the same zip? And in the Version 3 changes, they wrote "Fixed file version information for ScriptHookVDotNet2.dll".
    Very strange, I guess as you wrote it's just for legacy scripts. Do we even need to have 2 installed?

    Either way, I'm going to change my references to V3 going forward, none of my scripts are older than 2 or 3 months.


    ScriptHookVDotNet runs both v2 and v3 scripts to keep old scripts working.
