This may be a very novice question, I'm not sure. Currently I am taking a basic C++ programming class, and we are required to make a game. I would like to include .gif images in it.
The problem is this: every solution that I have found on the net will only display the image if the program is made into a binary executable file. I am running Borland Turbo C++ 3.0. The image is usually distorted when I run the program straight from Turbo, or I recieve many errors. It runs fine from an executable. I would like to know why this occurs, if it's not too much trouble. Is there a way that I can work around this, or is Turbo an inadequate application for this purpose? Thank you in advance for any responses.
