This post is a portion of Part 1 in my on going series about 2D Game Development using the Allegro 5 library. These posts are in course order. You can see all of the posts in this course by clicking the “2D Game Development” button at the top of this site.

In this video, we will be looking at installing Allegro 5 with Visual Studio 2010. In case you do not have the full version of Visual Studio 2010, this tutorial (and subsequent code) should work with Visual Studio VC++ Express.

In the next section, we will look at writing our first Allegro app.
