What is the actual error you are even getting?

identifier ""PHYSFS_AddToSearchPath"" is undefined

btw, for example the following works without problems:

Quote
PHYSFS_init (0);

It's add, not Add. Where did you take the uppercase name from?

From this maybe? https://icculus.org/physfs/physfstut.txt

IT WORKS! HA! Thank you so much  ;D

I got it from the tutorial of physicsfs website.

Edit: yes

I've sent Ryan Gordon an email about that typo too since it has such time wasting potential. The tutorial code on the SFML wiki is correct though.

So one more question. Since i dont understand the tutorial completely, i tried to make it on my own.

Quote
PHYSFS_init (0);

   PHYSFS_addToSearchPath ("Game.zip", 1);

   PHYSFS_file* myfile = PHYSFS_openRead ("Game/Sprites/Title.tga");

        sf::Texture tex;
   tex.loadFromStream(??);

   PHYSFS_close(myfile);

   PHYSFS_deinit ();

how do i load myfile to loadfromstream?  :(

You need a https://www.sfml-dev.org/documentation/2.4.2/classsf_1_1InputStream.php

Like the one from the wiki: https://github.com/SFML/SFML/wiki/Source:-PhysicsFS-Input-Stream

Or you can load entire file into memory and then loadFromMemory.

Ok thanks. Ill try my best (looks difficult).

In fact, this is the only thing i dont understand:

Quote
tex.loadFromStream(wonderfullStream);

What exactly is returned there? An entire class + sub class?

A stream that was created few lines before is passed by reference. It's a normal C++ thing with virtual methods, etc. All the load and open functions in SFML also return a bool to say if it worked or not.

Well, thank you very much. Its still a bit complicated to me and i guess i will make this at very last of my game.
I guess my c++ is not good enough yet to understand this  :(
