Next, we'll need to select the folder where you extracted Irrlicht. If you click on the browse button, a window called Global Variable Settings will pop up. Click Close to ignore this window. Now, we can select the directory where the Irrlicht engine is located: 5. The project has now been set up. If you try to compile and run the example using Build | Build and run, the example will not be built. You may get an error saying something as follows: "error: in passing argument 2 of 'irr::IrrlichtDevice* irr::createDevice(irr::video::E_DRIVER_TYPE, const irr::core::dimension2d&, irr::u32, bool, bool, bool, irr::IEventReceiver*)'" [ 22 ] Chapter 1 6.

We will have to redraw each frame as long as the device is running. 2. Define the variable IVideoDriver* driver and allocate device>getVideoDriver(). 3. Now jump to the "game loop". Add driver->beginScene(true, true, SColor(255, 255, 255, 255)); at the beginning of the loop. Add driver->endScene(); at the end of the loop. device) return 1; IVideoDriver* driver = device->getVideoDriver(); while (device->run()) { driver->beginScene(true, true, SColor(255, 255, 255, 255)); driver->endScene(); } [ 44 ] Chapter 2 device->drop(); return 0; } You should see a blank window created as follows, if it runs successfully: What just happened?

41 ] Creating a Basic Template Application Time for action – creating an Irrlicht device Creating a device in Irrlicht is as easy as calling a single function. If you have prior experience with graphics APIs such as Direct3D or OpenGL, you will know there's a lot of code involved to set up and create a device. So let's create an Irrlicht device. 1. Go into your main() function. 2. Define a variable called device by writing IrrlichtDevice* device. 3. Create our Irrlicht device by calling: createDevice(EDT_OPENGL, dimension(640, 480), 16, false, false, false, 0); 4.
