Re: cannot load libraries

I had to google to find SDL_image.dll for 1.2 version. Now most of the examples work and have to gather other SDL 1.2 Dlls for the remaining exercises. I will soon move to GUI examples and will run them with needed Dlls. Also I have to read a lot to become familiar with the way freeBasic works speci...

Re: cannot load libraries

So under "documentation" we better go to wiki (right side) rather than using the list under it. Thanks!

Re: cannot load libraries

I was referring to:
http://www.freebasic.net/wiki/wikka.php ... tUsingLibs

FreeBasic SDL examples use the old version. The tutorial page does not talk about dll at all.

Thanks anyway.

Re: Any tutorial SDL examples

Got to agree with you about how difficult it is to get started with any programming language these days. It used to be that you clicked on the IDE icon and stated typing, pressed compile and finish. Same feeling here, greed has pushed IT into quagmire of languages, classes, frameworks without any w...

cannot load libraries

Simply including *.bi library files suggested in one of the official tutorials seems does not work. As an example, for SDL, I still get: cannot find -lSDL_image. It is like the compiler is looking for a dll. There is something I don't get. Can someone help me to use libraries. The tutorial seems ina...

Re: TrueAxis physics wrapper Windows/Linux 32/64-bit.

Nice wrapper! If it was for openB3D, a lot could be done with it. Is it difficult to make it work with openB3D?

Re: MiniB3d for FreeBasic

Thanks for detailed explanation. Let me see if I am getting it right. the NeHe examples in freeBasic are not hardware accelerated because of: #include once "fbgfx.bi" But in this example: "glext_test.bas", we have hardware acceleration: #include once "GL/gl.bi" #include...

Re: MiniB3d for FreeBasic

Angros47, all hardware accelerated by the GPU through opengl (BlitzBasic and FreeBasic gfx don't use the GPU for accelerare 2d mode, they just use fast blitting and mmx instructions); OpenB2D, instead, can use hardware acceleration even for collision detection, if available So, there is no hardware ...

Re: MiniB3d for FreeBasic

Hello Angros47,

To test openB3D, I converted one of the Blitz3D manual examples, it worked very well.

Are all of those examples already converted to openB3D?

How about samples?

Is it legal to provide freeBasic version of Blitz3D samples using the codes and the assets that those samples have?

Re: problem with compiling

OK, I got SDL 1.2 binary which has the dll for win32, now the example works. Thanks. So, answer to my question is: you need SDL.dll, which is not automatically provided.

Re: problem with compiling

Thanks, For sure nothing wrong with documentation. Yes, it says, I didn't read the source code carefully, just ran the program. OK, I compiled the dll and it works now. How about the SDL examples? I picked mouse example. It seems I need SDL.dll. Should I compile it myself or it is precompiled somewh...
