I've recently had some requests for a PDF version of this tutorial, which frankly will take some effort to create.  Just looking for a general consensus if it is worth my time to make such a thing, or is HTML good enough?

I just want to thank you for writing these tutorials, they have helped me a great deal. I don't mind putting together the PDF version for you if you like.

That would be pretty awesome if you did!


On the topic of other people doing my work for me...  :)

Nathan is porting the source code from SFML 1.6 to 2.0, starting with chapter 6 ( before that it's pretty cut and paste ), so if you are interested in this tutorial in 2.0 form, check this out.

I will edit the originals to include 1.6 and 2.0 source downloads once he is completed.  For now, there is a starting point for 2.0 (RC).  Like the examples I provide, its download and go.

The download link is case sensitive, it needs a capital P in the file name, this link should work:
http://www.gamefromscratch.com/downloads/pang/pang6/Pang6v2.zip

I'll start working on a PDF version of the tutorial.

Thanks for the catch cotterall.

I've fixed the link... that was odd, I swore I tested it after posting.  Ill blame gremlins for that one.

In response to a reader request, I just finished putting together one more part, this one covering compiling in release mode.

It's part of the main tutorial series.  Essentially it covers building in release configuration, provides the required Visual Studio 2010 dlls and then covers what files need to be shipped with your game for someone else to play it.

If you are looking at distributing a 1.6 SFML game, even if you didn't run through my tutorial, this post should probably be of use to you.  Building the DLLs themselves is a bit problematic, thanks to the statically linked freetype library, which caused me one gigantic headache.  That is why I provided them in a zip.
