Creating an OGRE application is simple, and even simpler in Code::Blocks. Code::Blocks ships with an OGRE 3D application wizard, which makes it easy to create OGRE applications with a step-by-step approach. Within a few clicks, an OGRE application can be set up to run immediately. In other IDEs, the program needs to be set up more carefully, and subsequent sections of this chapter explain the process of creating OGRE applications in detail.
Creating an OGRE application in Code::Blocks is quick and straightforward. The following steps demonstrate this process.
Click New | Project. From the New from template window, select Ogre project and then click Go.
Enter a project title and a location where the project should be saved. Then click Next.
Select I have installed a pre-made OGRE SDK, and click Next.
Select the location where the SDK was installed, and click Next.
A new OGRE project is ready to run.
