Dependencies and resolving conflicts

Simulate dependencies are listed below. In certain situations, this may conflict with the dependencies specific to your application. The resolution varies depending on which library is causing the issue. In general, it requires a combination of techniques such as namespace aliases, pre-linking, and symbol redefinition. Please contact Hadean for support regarding this matter.
