Unity problem switching to Eclipse with SDL and OpenGL (Windows) [SOLVED]

Recommended Posts

As Windows is not my primary platform of development and I loathed the manifest + 6 flavors of runtime system that comes with MSVS (not to mention the several hundred megabyte SDK's), I've been using Dev-Cpp, which is highly deprecated. I've learned about Eclipse, which seems ever so sleek and today I've made my switch to it. I'm using SDL and OpenGL. I've found two tutorials, [1] and [2] on the subject, and they proved quite helpful. - I'm using the preprocessor symbol main=SDL_main (tried without, too) - I'm linking against mingw32, SDLmain, SDL (in the given order, however I've tried to switch around their precedence), tried the -mwindows flag (and without). - I'm keeping my SDL includes, libraries and binaries in MinGW's respective folders (although tried with them being kept separately), thus I'm not specifying their locations (elmininating the duplicate path entry warning)) However, when I'm trying to build the simple example,
[source lang=cpp]
#include <stdio.h>
#include <SDL/SDL.h>

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
  printf("Hello, SDL User!n");

  if(SDL_Init(SDL_INIT_VIDEO) < 0) {
    fprintf(stderr, "Video initialization failed: %s", SDL_GetError());
    return 1;


  return 0;

The compiler barfs at me as follows: /Users/hercules/trunk/SDL-1.2/./src/main/win32/SDL_win32_main.c undefined reference to `SDL_main' What on earth is causing this and how can this be fixed? (Yes, there is a similar thread, however it has been retired while the problem wasn't solved.) [Edited by - trajectorymodifier on June 20, 2009 7:56:28 AM]

    • By STRATUM the Game
      Hey, everyone! This is my first post here.
      I would like to know what you think about my project called STRATUM. It's a 2D platformer that is heavily based on storytelling and boss fighting while trekking through the world.

      Everything in STRATUM takes place in the first century AD, in a world that wraps our own universe, called  The Stratum. A parallel Universe that is the home of the Christian deities . In this game you will play as a Dacian warrior, unfamiliar with everything in this world, you’ll get to know and understand The Stratum together with him.
      The main thing that I want with STRATUM is to reinvent the known lore and history of the Christian deities and realms. 
      The story is unconventional, it plays down a lot of the mysticism of Hell or Heaven and it gives it a more rational view while keeping the fantastic in it. What do I mean by that? Well, think about Hell. What do you know about it? It's a bad place where bad people go, right? Well, that's not the case in STRATUM. I don't want to describe such a world. In STRATUM, there is a reason for everything, especially for the way Hell is what it is in the game. "Hell" is called The Black Stratum in the game.
      This world is not very different from Earth, but it is governed by different natural laws.
      The story will also involve the reason why this world entered in touch with ours.

      What do you think about all that I said? Would you be interested in such a game? I have to say that everything is just a work of fiction made with my imagination. I do not want to offend anyone's beliefs.
      I want this to be a one man game. I have been working alone on it (this was my decision from the beginning) from art to effects to programming to music to sound effects to everything.
      I also have a youtube video HERE if you want to see the way the game moves and the way my music sounds.
      Please, any kind of feedback will be highly appreciated. If you have something bad to say, do it, don't keep it for yourself only. I want to hear anything that you don't like about my project.

      Hi, it's my first post on this forum and I would like to share the game I am working on at the moment.
      Graphics have been made with Blender3D using Cycle as a renderer and I am using Unity3D. It's a 2D game, one touch side-scrolling game for iOS and Android.
      Here some pictures, and you can have a look to the gameplay on this video :
      Feedbacks ?
      And if you want to try it, send me your email and I will add you to the beta tester list!
