I installed SDL and I copied the sdl.dll to my project folder, and when I compile I get this error:
In file included from C:/Dev-Cpp/include/SDL/SDL.h:39,
from main.c:1:
C:/Dev-Cpp/include/SDL/SDL_audio.h:97: error: syntax error before `[' token
Anyone know how to fix it?

It's an error in the SDL_audio page. You could look at line 97 there, and see if it's just a typo, or, if it's not the latest version, download the new one, or, if it is, get the one right before it.

Cheers

The only way to currently fix that is comment that line out. It is a problem with the newest SDL 1.2.8 and Dev-CPP. The other alternative is to revert back to 1.2.7.
