    Maybe I should just give up... @_@ Thanks for all the attempts at helping, but I think I'm a lost cause this time, and I'm sorry for wasting anyone's time.

    A giving up attitude is going to get you nowhere. This really is a simple matter of placing the correct switches at the right places, and also one of the reasons why I abhor IDE's.
    iMalc: Your compiler doesn't accept misspellings and bad syntax, so why should we?

    Allegro is a little annoying to set up on windows right now. They are making the transition to version 5 and as far as I'm concerned everything is in a bit of a flux. I compiled version 4.2 awhile back as a static library and linked it to my code and that worked fine. starting with version 4.9 I believe they started using Cmake which just made it more annoying. Long story short. just Download DevC++ and install it. once that's done go to "tools"-->"check for Updates/Packages"-->from select devpack server choose "devpacks.org" then click "check for updates" and voila.

    when you create a new project just select "allegro" template. let me know how it turns out.

    If you are actually going to give up getting this setup then you have no business using Allegro or any API to make even the simplest of games. There are far more difficult challenges than this ahead of you when you start coding the game.
