Hello, I am new to this site and to C++.
I have been following a tutorial on how to make a Tetris clone in SDL and C++ from the following site :
When i was finished going through it all and sorting through all the petty errors I had gotten it ran smoothly, or so I thought.
Everything compiles and the window pops up and the text is shown. All of input works, and you can even get the game over message if you wait long enough. but other then the text, nothing is visible, such as the blocks or background.
I thought i maybe skipped out on a piece of the code and decided to try and compile the source code provided on the site which came up with the same result.
Prior to this I followed more beginner tutorials and was able to get an image drawn to the screen blitting with SDL, which to me rules out it being my computer or settings.
Does anyone have any idea to why this would happen?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advanced,
