GPDUMB1.OBJ : error LNK2005: "struct IDirectDraw * lpdd" (?lpdd@@3PAUIDirectDraw@@A) already defined in Game.obj
This is a pretty intresting error, what it''s saying is that there is already a value with the name lpdd assigned to it. From the looks of it, your using the Windows Game Programming for Dummies gpdumb1.cpp and gpdumb2.cpp. Now if you open those two files I believe you''ll find that IDirectDraw *lpdd; is defined in both of them (Note: this shouldn''t be a problem because Andre Lamothe put in the ifndef defines to protect you from this type of error but if you removed them for some reason you''ll want to put them back). Other than that it should work fine.
The second error is the infameous LIBCD.lib(crt0.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _main . It''s sister error is LIBCD.lib(crt0.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _WinMain. These errors happen when you create the wrong project type in Visual C++. The best way to determine how to fix this is to look at the code for a brief moment. If the code has a function called WinMain() then you need to create a Win32 Application. If the code has a function called main() then you need to create a Win32 Console Application. The error happens when your code has a main() and you create a win32 application, or if your code has a WinMain() and you create a win32 console application.
I''m pretty sure if you fix the second error the first will fix itself...so give it a shot.
