This code is the Getting started tutorial for DarkGDK I copied it into VC++ 2008 and it does not work.I did type copy it first and it did not work so I selected it out of the PDF copied it and pasted it into VC++ and it still does not work.

Here are the errors I get.

error C2001: newline in constant
error C2146: syntax error : missing ')' before identifier 'dbSprite'
error C2660: 'dbCreateAnimatedSprite' : function does not take 2 arguments

Here is the code



Like I said this code is selected and copied directly from the PDF and still does not work.

Thanks for any help!

EDIT: BAD ADVICE THIS!!!



One error can cause loads in C/C++.

@WLGfx
That was the worst advise I've ever seen... its the condition for a loop, so by adding an endline would make the loop useless..

I'm with Hawkblood, try deleting and rewriting (manually) this line:


Because -> " <- and -> ” <- are different.

Heres the fixed code:

I didn't recognise the dodgy quote in there until it was pointed out... he he

And I feel dumb. (was dropping off when I first read it...) SOWWY!!!

EDIT: I've edited that first post of mine... (And I'm spending 10 minutes with a D on my hat)

Ok I will delete the endline and rewrite the line manually and see what happens.

This is copied right out of the tutorial PDF so maybe that is wrong.
