Geting back in the swing of things.

Hoo boy. Been a while.

So things got complicated a bit ago. But I'm not giving up so easily. So, last time I had the camera set up and working. Next up, I mean to get a decent noise generator going. Probably going to use simplex noise. It is a quicker variant of the better known Perlin noise, aimed at solving some of the weaknesses the original implementation had.

But before I can do that, I want to be able to see the output of it. The easiest way to do that is to create a texture from the noise, then slap the texture somewhere to watch the resulting noise. Which means I have to get the hang of creating textures and slapping them on stuff.

So for the next part, I'm going to be working on that. Also, a comment on a problem I had when setting up a project in Code::Blocks. I have to set up the correct search directories.

In Build Options... -> Search Directories, it's Compiler tab, have to add D:\SDL-1.2.14\include. In the linker tab, D:\SDL-1.2.14\lib. The linker tab part was causing the linker to be unable to find stuff.
