Getting Steamworks to run with an SDL app
« on: December 18, 2013, 03:26:47 am »
Hi all, this is my first post here! I am learning C++ and have created a simple multiplayer bomber-man clone. For the fun of it, I wanted to incorporate the Steamworks SDK into my program but I don't know where to begin.

Has anyone here successfully used Steamworks with codeblocks / gcc? Are there any open source projects that have it?
I'm an absolute beginner and am just learning C++ with my game.
I don't have any desire to get my clone on steam, only to learn how it works if I ever come up with a clever/fun game or program that I think would be nice to have distributed through the steam software.

Please re-read the rules. I suggest reading the wiki and the FAQs also. http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Main_Page

1. This is NOT a general programming board. "How do I write a program that....", "Can anybody teach me how to", "I have this homework", "My program doesn't run and I don't have the slightest idea of why because I'm a C++ newcomer", "What is a compiler", "What does gcc do" is the kind of questions that is FORBIDDEN to ask.

I read the rules. My question has no relation to any of those. It was a simple "Has anyone done this before and if so is it open source?".

And exact this question violates the forum rules, because it is not related to c::b...
You can ask how you can add a thirdparty library to c::b but the only help you would get from me is this link:
