I am new to game programming (actually any type of desktop programming, I usually do web development with LAMP/WAMP). I am trying to start learning game development using C++. I found a few good tutorial series and they all use Allegro game library. I have never used a library in this type of environment before and I am having some problems. First I was going to try to use Visual C++ 2008 but every mention I found on allegro said to download it from allegro5.org , I can not however find a place to download it from that site, nor can I find another place to download it (at least not one that my antivirus did not flag on download)
So next I installed Code Blocks 10.5 and followed the following instructions to try and install Allegro: http://wiki.allegro....le=Code::Blocks
I am having some problems with it thou. When I run these comands:
> FIX.BAT mingw
> MINGW32-MAKE.EXE DEBUGMODE=1
> MINGW32-MAKE.EXE install
> MINGW32-MAKE.EXE install DEBUGMODE=1
I can run >fix.bat mingw
everything else seems to fail (or maybe i don't know what success looks like? Check the attachment to see what I got when I ran these commands.
Can someone help me please? I would prefer to use MSVC 2008 sense I eventually want to make win 8 metro games using MSVS 2012 but when it comes down to it, right now I am just trying to learn, I do not care what IDE I use as long as I can get Allegro working. I am about to head off for the graveyard shift but I am off tomorrow and hopefully can make some headway with this
Thanks in advanced
P.S : If this is in the wrong section I apologies, it just seemed like a beginner question
