Hey! raylib forum is closing!

After a year with not much movement in the forum I decided to close it.

The cost of maintaining the hosting is a bit high for the usage of the platform, updating the forum and managing it is also a bit cumbersome and the truth is that I'm already trying to maintain multiple other networks pretty more active than this forum.

I'll recommend you to move to the other raylib networks:

- For a forum style, use Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/raylib/
- For direct messaging and questions, use Discord: https://discord.gg/VkzNHUE
- To report issues, use GitHub: https://github.com/raysan5/raylib

- Also, remember you can contact me personally on Twitter: https://twitter.com/raysan5 or directly by mail to ray[at]raylib.com

If you feel generous, you can also contribute to the project on my Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/raylib

Thanks to you all for joining the project and help to improve it with your questions. Keep it up! :)

Best Regards,


PD. Closing will be effective by October 31th.

Problems to compile raylib game using Raylib 2.0

Hello there!
I extracted the release folder from github repository, but when I try to compile my code I get errors like:

../x86_64-w64-mingw32/bin/ld.exe: skipping incompatible C:\Developement\raylib-2.0\libs\win32\mingw32/libraylib.a when searching for -lraylib
../x86_64-w64-mingw32/bin/ld.exe: cannot find -lraylib

I am using this command to compile the code:
gcc -o raylib.exe raylib.c -IC:\Developement\raylib-2.0\include -LC:\Developement\raylib-2.0\libs\win32\mingw32 -lraylib -lopengl32 -lgdi32

Any tips to fix this problem? Thank you.


  • Are you working in Windows? I recommend using the Windows installer, it already setups everything for you.
  • Sorry for the delay, I had to leave the computer for a while.

    I'm actually not interested in using the Windows installer because I already have mingw and notepad++ installed, I just want to use these precompiled libraries that you made avaliable in the git repository. Thank you for your compreension.
  • It seems that the precompiled library is not compatible with your version of MinGW, if you want to use your current MinGW, you should recompile raylib library from sources.

    To do that, just go to raylib/src folder and execute in the command line:

  • Well, I'm using mingw from msys2. Could this be the cause of the problem?
  • Most probably. But it shouldn't be a big issue, just recompile raylib from sources and then it should work ok.
