Old SDL Releases & SDLtest.lib problem for building SDL_gfx


Are old releases archived somewhere? Not looking for the SDL source, only the old builds.

The reason I ask is that I’m having trouble building SDL_gfx with SDL 2.0.10 and the instructions say to use SDL 2.0.5.

This may not be the problem, though most of the library will build, it’s just having trouble with 3 of the test libraries which include SDLtest.lib as linker input (SDL2test.lib is in the same directory as SDL2.lib and SDL2main.lib so it should have no trouble finding this).

Specifically the error thrown when trying to build these is:

LNK2019 unresolved external symbol _SDLTest_CommonUsage referenced in function _SDL_main

I was wondering if anyone knew if SDLTest_CommonUsage had changed since 2.0.5, or if anyone knows any other way of fixing this.


p.s. I’m building in vs 2019, also I’m not even sure why building the SDL_gfx library is necessary, would be much nicer to have the pre-built includes but from what I gather this isn’t available.

Any help is much appreciated

Yes, they’re available here:

Ayy nice one, thank you!
