I have a BIG problem with OpenGL right now. I’ve learnt C and want to try some graphics/games programming.
When I try to compile with MinGW, it comes up with a errors which suggest that the files needed to compile OpenGL are not there.
So I try to compile on a manual install on MinGW that I had so I could compile GTK+ programs. No luck.
I was told to download the Windows SDK as OpenGL is included in that - when it came to the options on what I actually wanted to download, it said nothing about OpenGL or anything even related to it. (Plus the file was nearly 1gb big - and I don’t want to be forced to use MSVC++).
So for the biggest graphics programming library in the world, I find it really hard to believe that everyone found it this hard to get it to work. It’s times like these I wish I could afford a Mac.
I’d really appreciate any help anyone could give me.
