Is direct input a thing of mystery? Cause right now its giving me an ulcer.
I had Visual C++ 6.0 and I got a debugging corrupt error. Microsoft site said as of December 2004 SDK Visual C++ 6.0 no longer supported. Someone told me download EXTRAS would fix my problem. So i downloaded 65MB December EXTRAS.. nope didn't work.. downloaded October EXTRAS 23 MB nope nothing...
OK burn Visual C++ 6.0 as someone else noted and get free Microsoft 2003 toolkit compiler..
Get opensource IDE...
My directx program compiles and runs fine. But when I uncomment my direct input code i get..:
I have includedCode:syntax error: missing ';' before identifier 'g_InputObject 'LPDIRECTINPUT8': missing storage class or type specifiers 'g_InputObject': missing storage class or type specifiers
WTF?! why!Code:LPDIRECTINPUT8 g_InputObject = NULL;
Only thing I can think of is downloading the Windows SDK crap. (Please say the answer is no.. my 56k modem is dying and all this downloading of toolkits, ides it killing me)
Currently just using the lib and include folder that came with Visual C++ 6.0 so I can compile and execute WIN32 apps...
And please hurry.. I'm starting to hear voices in my head..
