I'm trying to load a .bmp with SDL and everything works fine if I save it in the root. The file is blitted and is usable. However if I place it in a folder that's in the root and specify it's location with something like
image = SDL_LoadBMP("/images/picture.bmp");
it will always return a NULL pointer. My question is, what's up with that? What am I doing wrong? I've pasted the bloody folder everywhere in hopes of finding the correct location, but it seems unless it's explicitly in the root or has a full path it won't load.
I'm using Visual Studio 2010 Express if that helps.
