I recently needed to write some SDL under win32
got new devc++ ( 184.108.40.206 )
installed ( from libsdl.org site itself )
run some tests to check if everything is ok … and
mp3 playback is broken!!!
( .ogg, .xm, .mod, .mid works with no problem )
reason is the smpeg.dll ( 204K )
( stderr says it couldn’t load smpeg.dll )
and yes, I placed ALL sdl related .dlls ( sdl.dll and so on )
in the same dir as executable that uses them!
I googled a little and found other version of smpeg.dll
and when I used smpeg.dll of smaller size ( 192K )
mp3 plays ok
now I have pretty sure evidence that smpeg.dll
from SDL_mixer 1.2.12 version is probably broken
( at least for mingw/devc++ )
