Um...

Why do you "need" to make a DLL file if you don't know what it's for? Yes you need to compile the C++ source code to create a game DLL.

Is an specific compiler? OR a generic C++ compiler?

Officially we support Visual Studio 2010 (both Express and premium versions). Others may work though, they're just untested for the most part.

See this for CE2 mods: http://doc.crydev.net/ProgrammingManual ... index.html

I'm sure googling for free C++ IDEs and testing them yourself can't be that much work. ;)

Still wondering why you specifically want a DLL file without even knowing how it's made. :P Is there an inherent value in having a special DLL file in your mod folder? :rolleyes:

All Visual Express editions are free of charge.

@Ruan: Crysis Wars Modding is a bit buggy under VE 2010, 2008 is better.
