I am trying to use Code::Blocks to write up my supernoob first 2D graphics of a deformed excuse for a shape on my screen.
All seemed to be well and good, I added the SFML-2.0\include\ folder and followed the documentation for my incredible green circle, my IDE was smiling brightly upon me as I it recognized the RenderWindow term and allowed me to place in parameters without proceeding to mock me by filling my log up with red text and references to objects that I never even wrote. Upon excitedly hitting the F9 key to build and run my new AAA game that was going to make me millions of dollars and revolutionize the market, I was finally spammed with the sadistic shit that the IDE was taking pleasure in letting out on me with an error message on almost every line.
It's relatively the same error each time:
Anyway. Some Google searches suggested that I hadn't placed in the appropriate library files (I had linked to the .lib's beforehand) and so I went on to fix my problem based on my own incompetence when... there's no ".a files" at all. It clearly suggests that they are in the lib folder. But there are only the basic libraries (system, system-s, system-d, window-s etc.) in .lib format.
If I can't even figure this one out I might as well seek a new career line as a catholic priest. So someone please tell me what the heck I'm doing wrong before I repent to the good lord for all my wrongs and move to Russia where I can spank mutant deer with my new acquired religious friends. You guys are about to determine my future.
