I'm working through the Projects in the recent Coding Academy and while I'm mostly finding it very interesting and fun, I'm having some problems running the SDL projects. I'm pretty confident that I've got all the libraries installed and the references added to the solution. But when I try to run even the basic program with just the background and logo, all I get is a blank screen.
I'm calling update on the correct surface afterwards, so I'm confident this isn't an issue. Interestingly, when I try to just fill the main surface with a colour the program crashes.
If anyone has any suggestions or help, it would be very much appreciated. Cheers,
