Hello - I am currently learning to use the Allegro game libraries, and I have a problem (Under the guidance of 'Game programming all in one' by Harbour). Visual Studio.NET 2003: In Visual Studio, I am well aware how to load up a new bitmap into the project - That's easy. And I would like to use VS.NET for my projects, and going through this book. However, I have no idea how to add the Allegro libraries into the IDE. The appendix says how to do it in VC++ 6.0 - But it seems he is using menu items I do not have...And I've looked everywhere for em. (I highly suspect 'External tools...' is the way to go, but that screen confuses me.). MinGW and Dev-C++: I thought I cracked the problem of adding the Allegro library to MinGW, but alas it failed...Any help on that would be appreciated. As for Dev-C++ - That was easy to install Allegro on! However...In one of the examples, you project a bitmap of your choice onto the programmes window - So I follow all instructions carefully, and my programme can't find the file I'm indicating, and this is due to to..... I can't seem to be able to add image files to Dev-C++ nor MinGW....Perhaps I've been spoilt by VS.NET...I would like any and all help on how to call a graphic (and any other external file) into my programmes...As I am now ready for beginning graphics programming!!! (I was thinking making a new file in the projects file - and then the functions to look for an image file will bring it from an external file - Much like I/O saving and loading...But I didn't want to muck about, and would of liked some definate answer on the matter. Thanks for any help in advance, Twigstar

Hmm, my assumption was right - so that was a waste of a question - And that documentation assumes I already have it installed - But I suppose I should pain myself to read documentation : p.

Cheers for the reply (and link to the documentation),
