I've decided to start working on a cross platform (windows/linux) game.. Too bad it's a total mind F*(&.. I've got a svn repository setup and now I'm getting everything else done, I want to use the SFML library, but this is where the problem comes in.. How do I deal with linking to the libraries from multiple platforms.. I wanted to use codeblocks (as it is cross platform) to develope so I could just use the same project file, but now it seams as if that may be implausable.. Do I need to use a makefile?? if so, would somthing as such as cmake be better? I only have used basic makefiles and personally I hate having to go to the extra effort which an ide does for you, which is why I'm dreading this.
I think the smartest thing to do will be learn to use cmake properly then use that, so I'ma do some cross platform development research like I should have in the first place then I'll report back any tips
