Well I didn't have anywhere else to turn, so i came here. I dont know how many people here have actually worked with SDL, but I'm hoping there are a few of you out there that can help me.
I downloaded the file under win32 I think, it ended with a VC6.zip. So I unzip it and find VisualC.html. I read it, and see it says how to compile your own files. (SDL.dll, SDL.lib, SDLmain.lib)
I find a directory that already has them. So I skip this part and continue on. It tells me how to create a project with SDL. I follow the directions step by step. I then compile this.
int main( int argc, char* argv )
// Body of the program goes here.
I get 2 errors and a warning.
LINK : warning LNK4001: no object files specified; libraries used
LINK : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _WinMainCRTStartup
Debug/SDL1.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
So I copy the first error and put it in a search engine. I find someone that gets the same error, due to using a borland lib instead of MSVC or something like this. So I go back to the first step to try and build my own.
It says to unzip VisualC.zip to the same directory as the VisualC.html. I don't have a visualC.zip so I search libsdl.org and find a version 1.4 of the file and unzip it. It then says to go to the newly created Visual C directory, ok. Next I have to open the workspace "SDL.dsw", problem, "SDL_ttf.dsw" in this directory. I have no "SDL.dsw" anywhere. So I SDL_ttf.dsw instead. It then says to fileview on the workspace area and build the files by simply right clicking what I see in the area and choosing build. I should have a few warnings, but no errors. I get 1 error, and 1 warning for each. I can't figure out whats wrong. Help me somebody.
