I got SFML last night, and postponed using it until today. Well, I have no idea how to use it. I am using Qt Creator as my IDE, and have placed the extracted SFML MinGW file to the Qt directory. What do I do now?
PS: Should I post this on the Qt forum, or does this question work here?
Thanks, I put one on the Qt forums too, btw :) but I am having trouble linking the library (I don't know what you mean by "against"). I have never used any plugin / outside libraries before. Since you replied, I assume you have knowledge about SFML yourself. So, how did you do it with your IDE?
If the SFML library is in the correct path, there should be an option somewhere in QtCreator to add SFML to the linker line. If the compiler gives an error about not being to find the specified library, it's not in the correct path. Alternatively, you can just add your own path. I don't know how to do this specifically in QtCreator but being able to do this is pretty much fundamental in any C/C++ IDE.
As far as actual using SFML, it's a pretty well documented API, and most problems I've run into I've been able to solve simply by searching posts already made by the community. Once you get the hang of it, it's very intuitive to use.
