ALLEGRO w/ Windows
Has _ANYONE_ ever had a Borland(Windows) Allegro build? I have it working on DJGPP but I really want it working with BCC32, which is possible with lib.exe (which i now have).. i'm getting errors that are like this during the build
error creating output [demo.c] line 198
error creating output [demo2.c] line 922
where line 198 and 922 are always the very last line of the file
could someone please help me out with this? it seems to find the .lib file and everything, but when it goes to link the .obj file i get tons of UNDEFINED's as if the .lib isn't defining the allegro functions/variables
unless you have some borland allegro library, you can't use a DJGPP sepcific lib with borland...
other than that, are you using the right header, and/or linking with the lib?
the allegro readme says that there is no way of linking allegro with another compiler, such as Borland, or watcom, but I've heard that there is a crack out there that would let it
I've also heard that DJGPP has a windows extension, named RSXNTDJ, you could use this if you want to make allegro for windows.
but, using DJGPP, you can make allegro programs that run on windows..
-KEN- & oskillian: i'm talking about compiling Allegro for borland, the Allegro (WIP) distribution has directions for it (readme.bcc).
And oskillian, do you know where this RSXNTDJ is?
The reason I don't want to make DOS exe's is because they won't run on WinXP. (and i think WinNT is the same)
i found RSXNTDJ, and it actually requires me to change my setup a great deal, I'd rather find out why the directions in readme.bcc dont' work before i mess with so many different files.
You know, you can actually d/l a binary for allegro. Just go to thier site.
One of cozman's other posts has sparked an interest in me about allegro. But to no avail i also couldn't get it to compile properly (i use dev-c++). Anyways, i'm gonna get the binary and i'll tell you if it works out.
the binary is just for MSVC++ users, if its the same one i know about.... Last night i got it to compile for borland but it's really glitchy and i think i'm just going to use MingW32 for it has much more support. Good luck using it :)
