Dark GDK / Inquiring minds want to know... or do they?

Can other c++ libraries be used in conjunction with the DGSDK? Say, for example, I wanted to create a game and then plug in a multiplayer networking class library. Is that allowed/doable, and if so, is it relatively easy or are there a billion hoops to jump through to accomplish it?

ooo isn't that precious

It will be possible to use certain kinds of libraries with the DGSDK. As long as the libraries don't interfere with rendering it should be fairly straight forward to implement. Something like a multiplayer library could slot right into a project with the DGSDK.

Few things to keep in mind when using libs with DarkSDK...

darkSDK already contains a WinMain() so any other lib containing a WinMain might give you linking errors... e.g. SDL

progs using darkSDK are set up as SingleThreaded CRT Project if any of your libraries have Multithreaded or Multithreaded DLL settings you might get linker errors.
