Hey GameDev community

So, im having a problem. A noobish problem imo.

I was trying to execute this tutorial:

http://lazyfoo.net/tutorials/SDL/51_SDL_and_modern_opengl/index.php

and, for some reason, this error keep showing up.

I've tried other tutorials, including FreeGLUT and GLEW tutorials, and this same error keeps on showing up.

I've placed the headers and libs inside Visual Studio folder and the DLL inside de %SystemRoot&/System32. I've also tried using the properties of the visual studio project -> Additional Include Directories and the Linker correspondent. (and Addicional Dependencies)

SubSystem is set to Console.

I've probably skipped a step in setting up OpenGL, but i can't seem to find that step.

Im sorry if this was already explained in other topics. I did search, but i didn't find anything that helped.

Thank you

Akatsua

EDIT: Any other information that is missing for the resolution of the problem, please ask. I will include it ASAP.

Dynamic libraries(.dll) are in the same folder as the executable.

Like i said before:

I've also tried using the properties of the visual studio project -> Additional Include Directories and the Linker correspondent. (and Addicional Dependencies)

I've just checked the additional Dependencies and its normal. With SDL2.lib and SDL2main.lib, the same unresolved external symbol errors still exist, even for SDL functions, like SDL_CreateWindow.

On other note: Even if this doesnt work, can you refer me a good website that teaches how to properly handle libraries? The problem still is happening so, this is a bit offtopic.

Wait wait, i've rechecked everything again, and its starting to work.

Only these 3 errors are left and im not sure what libs i should add dependency...

OOOOK. Its done. Thanks RoundPotato.

Just FYI, i love potatos. Potatos are the best.
