Maybe this should go in the clueless newbie subforum, I'm not sure. If this is the case, could a mod please be so kind as to move it there?
A friend and I are experimenting with JOGL in hopes of learning some stuff and making a simple 2D graphics engine for a project in school over the coming months. So far, all the guides I've read that are supposed to get me started tell me to put the dlls in the bin folder of the JRE and the jar files in the lib folder of the JRE (when this didn't work I put both the jar file and
the files it contained in the lib folder. No change). I did this, and then tried to compile some sample code from the tutorials, and they all complain about packages not existing:
package net.java.games.jogl does not exist
I read on a sun-forum that I should use javax.media.opengl instead, but I get the same thing:
package javax.media.opengl does not exist
I'm trying to compile it in JCreator and I'm running windows vista. It seems to work fine for my friend who's running debian, but I don't know what he uses to compile stuff.. (I am not willing to switch to linux at this time, so please don't suggest that)
Any and all help is appreciated.
edit: I noticed that all the guides I find seem to be 5 years old or more. Are there any tutorials that are more up to date?
