Regarding Apron's Tutorial

Recommended Posts

I'm confused. I'm not sure what type of application Apron's tutorial is using. If it is Windows or Console; and I'm also not sure if he used ATL and/or MFC since both those header files are disabled in my Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition. Will someone please help me about this? Apron's tutorial is located at: http://www.morrowland.com/apron/tut_gl.php ..and I'm refering to his 3ds loader's code -> http://www.morrowland.com/apron/tutorials/gl/gl_3ds_loader.zip ..since whenever I compile his source codes, I always get error(s).. Is it okay if you guys try compiling it also? :| Please? Thanks

Blech. That tutorial code is terrible.

However, a quick glance through it doesn't reveal any immediate dependency on MFC. It does link to a JPEG decompression library, however, which you would need to obtain. Beyond that you should be able to compile the code. Perhaps you should post some of the offending code and errors it stimulates -- although a better option might be looking into an alternative learning resource. Tutorials, in general, are not great places to actually learn anything.

3DS is also a really archaic and altogether mostly-useless (given its complexity but lack of features) format to load. There are also libraries (lib3ds, use Google) that can do it for you so you don't have to reinvent the wheel (or copy and paste somebody else's poorly built wheel).
