SFML.net 2.5 dll's? Where do I get them? (solved)
« on: March 23, 2019, 02:20:21 pm »
Hi,

I'm fairly new to SFML (and programming), tried the base C++ a bit, liked it very much, and wanted to try the C# version.
The problem I'm running in to, is that I can't seem to find the DLL's I need.

I added the NuGet package, and wrote my program, but on execution I get an Error that they can't find the dll's.
From google I find several answers telling me to copy the dll's from the lib folder of the files I downloaded... But I didn't download any files! For 2.4 and older versions there is a file with dll's I can download, but for 2.5 there is only the NuGet package, and the source code that I can find.
Am I missing something obvious?
Thanks for your help in advance!

You need to download the C binaries for SFML 2.4 and place them in the same folder as the .NET libraries (where your *.exe is located in the bin directory).

No, you don't. With the latest NuGet package, we have created a CSFML package that the SFML.NET package depends on.

So.. I don't need to copy any DLL's? Is there another reason I'm getting an DLL not found error then?
I dont really follow...



Eddit:  Added example of what I'm talking about.

Works fine for me. How does your dependency graph look like?



Have you run a NuGet restore?

Also, what compiler settings did you pick?

So, apparently I've missed some tutorial on setting a new project up or something. Am I blind, or isn't there one?

Sor me the side looks just like the attachment. No dependencies menu.

I just did:  File->New project -> Console app(.net framework) in visual studio. Then added the SFML.net package with NuGet.
This looked like it worked, because I could just start using the SFML parts, and it compiles fine. Just errors on runtime.

I'm sorry if this is just a complete newby question, and there is some tutorial explaining how to do this that I somehow missed, I'm just very new at this. (I have a background as an Electrical engineer, with mostly embedded C programming, and as a hobby I'm trying to get into desktop programming, and I wanted to make a simple game)

Ah, maybe that's the issue then. With SFML.Net 2.5 we switch from .Net Framework to .Net Standard, as such you'll need to create a .Net Core Console application - if you haven't you'll need to install the .Net Core SDK.

Side note: I thought Eldalote was reffering to SFML .NET 2.4. Might have had something to do with his modification to his original post.

There isn't much outside of the github repo.

Great to hear that, that was the issue.

No worries :)

There isn't much outside of the github repo.
I agree that some more documentation would be nice. The SFML.Net repo has a community Wiki or one could potentially add something to the website.
So if anyone has some spare time and feels like contributing, we'd happy to receive it! :)
