    Angry Allegro with MSVC 7.1!

    I don't understand how to get Allegro to work with MSVC 7.1. I was reading through the docs, but they are confusing as heck ( they usually are poorly written). I have absolutely no idea where to start. They keep saying i have to run some file in my MSVC install folder, it's just really confusing. So if anyone knows of a simpler tutorial in order to get Allegro to work, please tell me.

    Search the board.

    I've never installed Allegro, but I have installed the SDL. For the SDL you need to link with some extra files and copy the header files to your compiler's include directory.

    Yeah, I'll just use SDL since that worked for me. I was just curious in seeing how hard Allegro is to install with MSVC.

    If SDL is working then just use that. It's widely used and more supported IMO.
