Well, I recently started practicing allegro, I am in one of my beginner practices and I need a bit of help. I keep getting errors like, " [Linker error] undefined reference to `_imp__screen' ". I am sure there is a basic solution but I an't find it online or in another topic. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My code: #include <allegro.h> #include <cstdlib> BITMAP *StickMan1; int stick_x = 20; int stick_y = 20; void SetupGame(){ draw_sprite(screen, StickMan1, stick_x, stick_y); acquire_screen(); } void MoveMan(){ if( key[KEY_RIGHT]){ --stick_x; } else if(key[KEY_LEFT]){ ++stick_x; } } int main(){ allegro_init(); install_keyboard(); set_color_depth(16); set_gfx_mode( GFX_AUTODETECT, 640, 480, 0, 0); StickMan1 = load_bitmap( "StickMan1.bmp", NULL); SetupGame(); MoveMan(); return 0; } END_OF_MAIN(); ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Like I said, its really short and probably a stupid error on my part. I use Dev C++ as my compiler and am really just a newb who needs help. Thankyou

Usually Allegro beginners get an error due to missing graphics files but in your case I'd be it's because of your use of Dev C++ as your compiler.
Try using C++ express. It's free.

Actually I just figured it out...i'm an idiot, I forgot to link a LIB file in the project. Thanks for replying though.
