Load other than BMP's with SDL?

Recommended Posts

Try SDL_image.
Quote:

This is a simple library to load images of various formats as SDL surfaces.
This library supports BMP, PNM (PPM/PGM/PBM), XPM, LBM, PCX, GIF, JPEG, PNG,
TGA, and TIFF formats.

As peregrin said, try SDL_image in fact all you have to do is very simple:

1. add the header to your source files

#include "SDL_image"

2. tell the linker to link against the library

(on linux, add this flag to your linker command on your Makefile)
-lSDL_image

3. replace all your SDL_LoadBMP() occurrences with IMG_Load()

and you're done :)
