I'm trying to make my first real graphical C++ program by using SDL in Visual C++. One problem I have is that it's kind of a lunar lander type of thing, so I need to rotate the ship freely. I could make different animations for each time the ship would rotate 45 degrees, but is there just some way to rotate bitmaps in SDL using a single bitmap? Do I need to use OpenGL to do it? Is it easy?
thanks in advance.
