Using SDL in Visual Basic

Posted on 2004-11-15

Ok, I have used SDL (Simple Direct Media Layer) successfully in C++, but I would like to be able to use it in Visual Basic 6.0. Havn't been able to find anyone out there who has done this yet. Any suggestions?

    I think the reason that you haven't found anything is that SDL is designed to be cross platform, wheras VB6 isn't (so it kinda defeats the point of using SDL) :-(

    I *believe* that sdl for windows just comes as a DLL, so you *should* be able to just link to it like with any other DLL...

    But as you say, I cannot find anything about it on the web :-(
