    Sure. OpenAL (not the greatest) is there but DirectSound is better.

    I read your post and understood every word in it, but for whatever reason the fact that you say your are making a console application didn't click in my brain until after I posted my reply. You can't exactly make graphics in your console app. You can make ascii art. There is always DOS, but that isn't what you are talking about since you use mingw and that is a win32 only compiler. SDL will handle the windows end for you but just so you know your program will actually be a windows app not a console app.

    >>Question: What is mingw ??

    MinGW is the compiler behind the Dev-C++ IDE

    if you dont have MinGW (or if you 'take it out') then i think you can chose to use the cygwin compiler, but without a compiler, Dev-C++ would be only a text-editor, and not an IDE. Some people get confused and say Dev-C++ is a compiler, but its not.

    Thats right, Dev-C++ uses the GNU tools for compilation.

    Open a DOS Prompt, and enter...

    c:\dev-c++\bin\gcc -v

    or...

    c:\dev-c++\bin\g++ -v

    to get compiler version data. GCC.EXE is the C language compiler and G++.EXE the C++ compiler.

    Replace -v with --help to get info on the different CP switches that can be used.
