SDL2 for Visual Studio 2015

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just want to ask if everyone has the same issue with SDL, so i was trying to follow tutorials for setting up SDL fro Visual Studio 2015 and it says in the tutorial i was following that 2015 is still buggy and the tutorial only works for 2013 below. Does anyone have a setup tutorial of SDL2 for Visual Studio 2015?

Regards,
Eincrest

It's not buggy at all I do it all the time. The problem comes if you are not using binaries built with VS2015.

In the attachment are the binaries that I use with VS2015.

+ sdl2_image

+ sdl2_ttf

 

DGI

x86.rar

PS : If you can't do it write me a PM I will tell you how to set them up

I've used SDL the exact same way with Visual Studio 2008, 10, 12, 15 and 17. There is no differences in including and using libraries in any of these versions.

Does the architecture matter? I'm using x64, PM incoming for setup questions. Thanks mate.

Hey man, i followed this tutorial http://gigi.nullneuron.net/gigilabs/setting-up-sdl2-with-visual-studio-2015/ i think it's already obsolete since the tutorial was made in 2015. 

P.S. I'm new to game programming and wanted develop 2d games for starters.

Have you tried just using the binaries from the SDL2 site and the standard instructions? If you encounter a specific problem, you can post it here and I'm sure it can be overcome.
