Warning 1 warning C4101: 'ps' : unreferenced local variable
Warning 2 warning C4101: 'hdc' : unreferenced local variable
Error 4 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _DirectDrawCreateEx@16 referenced in function "int __cdecl DD_Init(int,int,int)" (?DD_Init@@YAHHHH@Z)
Error 5 error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
and some more.but if go to project properties and change character set from Unicode to multibyte I end with errors 4 and 5 only.
now the book is from 2002 so the .cpp files and Im using visual studio 2012 express with windows 8 with directx sdk that comes with it.
I don't see ddraw.lib in sdk folder and don't know what to do and how to resolve the errors above
