In GCC-land, the prepended lib and the extension are both assumed. a is added as a linker option using -lAdvanced2D. You must make one last setting, and then you can compile the project. We need to tell Dev-Cþþ where to put the resulting executable file, because the default is not a good location. \lib? \bin (which is short for binary). \bin folder is where you will save game assets that the executable needs to load up, so we might as well get into the habit of doing this for each project now. Open the Project Options again.

You should now have a functioning core engine that is eager to start rendering, so let’s move on to the next chapter to do just that. 41 This page intentionally left blank chapter 2 3D Rendering Rendering is the process of transforming an entity’s data into a visual representation. I hesitate to use the terms ‘‘two-dimensional’’ or ‘‘three-dimensional’’ explicitly because it’s possible to render in more ways than what is viewed through a computer monitor. We cannot limit the theory to a simple computer monitor because it’s now possible to scan a 3D object, as well as sculpt a 3D object.

In the tree-view list, expand Projects and Solutions and select VCþþ Directories. There is a drop-down list on the right side where you can choose Library Files. lib in the linker configuration without needing to prepend the relative folder location. 14. To compile in Visual Cþþ, press CtrlþShiftþB or use the Build menu. If you have no errors in your code, you can press F5 to build and run the program. 15. What you do not see in this simple example is the program window coming up automatically. I’ve short-circuited the window from appearing by returning 0 in game_preload().
