Dev C++ and Kyra

  • Arminas

    Well I attempted to get Kyra working on Dev c++ again.  I tried first to compile the source from your website, no go.  I then tried to use the dev files from the community page, still didn't compile.  Finally tried the devpack that is listed on Dev c++ devpack lists, still doesn't work.  Yes I do like ease of installation btw, which I was hoping to get with the devpack version of Kyra.  

    So someone please explain to me in a step by step manner how to easily get Kyra installed to work in DevC++.

      Kyra doesn't ship with dev-c++ support, although others have certianly got it working. I know it is a little frustrating, but you have left the happy world of tested code and moved into the experimental place of There Be Monsters.

      If you get everything compiled and working using some other compiler (like MinGW or Cygwin), you can copy the requisite files for SDL (as it actually moves things around) from the /bin and /lib directories of wherever it installed SDL (I used cygwin, it installed to /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/lib) to the lib and bin directories of Dev-C++. Then, you can set up your files to be in the structure:


      If you reference ../kyra/foo for the header files instead of (in the tutorials) ../foo, it works.

      Good luck
