Could someone point me to a step by step guide to installing Allegro 5.1 on C::B? I tried it on my last pc and messed up really badly. I found a lot about installing 5.0 but I can't figure out how to install 5.1 and I'd really like to have access to the features in 5.1.
Okay, so, thanks to the help from several people on this thread, this is how far I've come so far.
I followed the instructions at https://amcerasoli.com/allegro/article/10 but ran into a couple of issues on the last step, namely executing mingw32-make in C:\allegro-ready. I was getting problems related to DirectX and the solution was to download the directX version from http://alleg.sourceforge.net/files/dx9mgw.zip. What I did was merge and overwrite these files, then I also extracted the zip to C:\dx9mgw and altered CMake in the following ways:
- FREETYPE > FREETYPE_INCLUDE_DIR_ft2build : C:/mingw/include/freetype2
- FREETYPE > FREETYPE_LIBRARY : C:/mingw/bin/lib/libfreetype.a
- D3DX9 > D3DX9_LIBRARY : C:/dx9mgw/lib/libd3dx9.a
Now I just need to know how to get this into C::B
