SDL_Image won't load my PNG

Well, I don’t know which tutorials you’re talking about… can you elaborate? (Provide a link?)

Not sure how it works on Windows, but on Linux, you’ll need to install libpng for SDL_image to be able to read .png files. Maybe this is true on Windows too.

Try making a .bmp file instead, and loading that. SDL_image can load those with no extra library support required.------------------------
Please support my free Android game, xorf ( It uses SDL 2.0, SDL_image and SDL_mixer.
