So im wanting to make a program in sdl and im learning on lay foos site. evreything was working fine until lesson 3-4 (im using windows/code::blocks/mingw btw) where it has me try to install the SDL_image header. i did that fine, and put the *.dll's in the folder with the exe and the SDL_image.lib in the lib folder. i know that its just the SDL_image that isnt working because SDL was before it. anyways when i go to compile it says it cant find the function IMG_Load(char *) even though i verified the function is in the header. i know the code is right because i copied the whole thing from the source online
sorry. i havent used an ide linker before this (i would compile command line style) so i was used to seeing the ide give just compilation errors. heres the snapshots. (i think im linking correctly but probably not).
I'm more or less guessing but my thought was that maybe each project has it's own compiler settings which is set to the global compiler settings when the project is created and updating the global compiler settings will not modify the compiler settings of any existing project.
