I followed http://www.geneome.net/index.php/blender-tutorials/ tutorial on building and it built fine when I first did the building.
I then was trying to patch in spaceball and couldnt.
So I deleted the everything in the blender directory. redownloaded cvs
Now I have problems missing files like zlib.h and sdl
I checked MSvc++ and looks like the right directories are there. Is this a directXsdk problem do I need to redownload the 440meg file? its installed.
