SDL 1.3 no Ubuntu

Hello,

I’m working on a game using the SDL library and Ubuntu Linux 1.2;
I’m having problems in the speed screen update. I wonder if it is possible
utiizar SDL version 1.3 and how to achieve the same for Ubuntu Linux.

Regards,

Hi,

SDL 1.3 is still in development and is not recommended for your game.
Also SDL 1.3 in not available to install on most Linux’s.
(user would have to download, compile, and manually install 1.3).

I would recommend you stay with SDL 1.2 for your Linux game.
If the speed of screen drawing is too slow for your game,
I would recommend you add OpenGL to SDL 1.2.

Also, what Ubuntu you using? the current version is 10.04…

There are ways to optimize rendering a bit if you’re willing to explain what
you’re doing. Are you using SDL_DisplayFormat and SDL_DisplayFormatAlpha?
If you’re interested in checking out SDL 1.3, you can build it from source
very easily on Ubuntu after you grab the HG version:
http://www.libsdl.org/hg.php

I also have a binary version of an older revision:

SDL 1.3 can definitely be used for a game in its current state, but be aware
that a couple of interfaces are still changing.
