Im was just wondering about which graphics library shall I use for my C project.
I am intending to make a action game requiring to draw and also to draw bitmaps on screen.
Which would be easier and which would be better?
I like SDL but I don't have enough experience with Allegro to make a fair comparison. I think SDL has faster software rendering.
I've only used Allegro, but I found it to be pretty straightforward. And I never had any problems with performance.
I am having a problem setting up ALLEGRO 5.0.8 statically.. Does anyone know how?
I like Allegro more than SDL. The best for me is SFML.
I downloaded the binaries, so i didnt have to use cmake but I just cant make it work
SDL is better Faster & much simplier. always try both
I would say SDL. SDL is very fast and simple-ish to use. I enjoy using it, though I don't use it that much. Allegro is a pain to install, especially on a Mac (and especially on 64bit). Allegro is also pretty new.
Go with whatever one you feel the most comfortable with. I personally prefer SDL.
