A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games.

Very weird. Glaux is suppossed to be a static library (all the code is put inside your executable, that''s why glaux.lib is so much bigger than most lib files) which means it doesn''t need a DLL. Maybe you''re using a different version of glaux or something (I doubt that)? Anyway, as I''m sure you''ve seen me say before, glaux isn''t that great. Who cares about skipping a few tutorials, you can always go back if you don''t get it (most of them aren''t in any real order anyway).

There is a GLAUX.DLL file, it's just not released in the newer drivers.

Just stick "GLAUX.DLL" in Google : I found this in 30 seconds :

It's at the bottom.
Put it in your system or in your project's directory.

is this a compiler specific problem then? why not use the .lib during linkage?

beats me!

i can understand delphi requiring a .dll version for obvious reasons ... but not c/c++

Needing a DLL doesn''t depend on the compiler or language, it depends on the type of library linked (static or dynamic). Evidentally he has a dynamic library. MSVC comes with a static library as a default (and since most people use MSVC, I always assume people are using it when I answer questions until I find out what compiler that have).

i stand corrected!

I assumed that dev C gave the choice - whereas I believe that Delphi only uses .dll files - although i could be wrong!
