Topic: Need help compiling a minor change
ultimately i'm trying to just add the function, that while in window mode, if you press alt key i can pick up the key press and use it. currently if i press alt it will pause the program as if its trying to access the windows menus... which doesn't help at all.
Looking through the irrlicht forums i found http://irrlicht.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/ … 783#122783 which just involves modifying the CIrrDeviceWin32.cpp file and recompiling. i've tried that and complied it in Visual Studio 2008 as the dll, it had no errors after disabling dx8 option. then I copied this to overwrite the original dll but now it just crashes when trying to run my Blitzmax program. Looking into it does the BMX wrapper have a modified dll already? because i tried just putting the 1.7.1 dll from the SDK and that has the same effect on my BMX program? any help with how to compile properly or if gman could make the changes just for a dll for me whichever is easiest.
If i could compile this myself somehow that would be great for in the future when start I looking into intergrating some code snippets and addons from the irrlicht forums myself.
Any help will be great,
