Hey,

Today I decided I would try out Dev-Cpp and Allegro instead of DJGPP.

I know with Dev-Cpp you can make windowed programs... the code I have written doesn't seem to work.

Code:

#include <allegro.h>

#define WIDTH 1024
#define HEIGHT 768

void main()
{
     allegro_init();
     install_keyboard();
     set_color_depth(16);
     set_window_title("Hello!");    set_gfx_mode(GFX_AUTODETECT_WINDOWED,WIDTH,HEIGHT,0,0);
}
END_OF_MAIN();


That set_gfx_mode() is on the line below and is indented, I just couldn't get it to on here :-/

This program makes a program appear in the Windows bar at the bottom, the taskbar? When I click on the program in the taskbar I see it minimize from the top left hand corner of the screen, and thats all it does... there is no window. Does anyone know why?

Thanks,
Mousie.

I don't know what size of a screen resolution you're having, but I think you'll have have trouble setting a windowed mode when the resolution is the same size as or bigger than the screen. Try testing with a smaller window than screen size (unless you're already doing that).

Also, do you maybe need to pause the program in some way? (e.g. something like this: while(!key[KEY_ESC]); )

Oh, I've had that error - pretty weird, isn't it? It hasn't happened in a while though, it just comes and goes.

It's a fantastic tool though.
