Hi, I'm following tutorials, and they are compiling, then ask for freetype-6.dll Searched my PC for one, put it in the same folder as my app, and now it comes on, flashes, I can see that the window is being set up and the caption is being set. But the font is not working, nothing is wrong with the code, I've been told to Link FreeType, I've downloaded and installed the program, but I have no idea how to link it. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Ryan Konkolewski.

I fixed it! I just had to add -ISDL_ttf

Reason for me doing this? Anyone looking on Google in the years to come will hopefully benefit from my discoveries. And I don't want anyone suffering, as it is very fustrating, and believe me if I repeated what I've been shouting at this computer, I would be banned from these forums!

By the way I use Netbeans!

Thanks anyway!
