Hello,

I am new to these forums and I have a very simple, beginner question.

I am currently trying to set up an example program I found on particleSystems.org so I can learn how to use particles.

The example program is in the 'API and documentation' download shown on the front page of the site.

I have added the necessary include file in project properties, but am not sure what to add for the 'additional libraries'. Usually I just add the 'lib' folder, but I can't find one in the folder. How can I find out what needs to be added to the "include additional libraries" field under project properties? Obviously the program will not work until I do this.

I know this question is very specific, but any help/guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks

I downloaded the zip, and, yeah, what a mess. I think you're supposed to build the ParticleLib project yourself, which'll produce a ParticleLib.lib static library which you can use in the examples. Like so:

1>------ Build started: Project: ParticleLib, Configuration: Release Win32 ------
1>  Actions.cpp
1>  ActionsAPI.cpp
1>  OtherAPI.cpp
1>  PInternalState.cpp
========== Build: 1 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========
