IOError: Couldn't find file '_______.png'; At startup; Aprox 1 min after restart??;

#1 Post by shyll » Sat Jan 13, 2018 5:29 pm

Hey, I'll get started.

This game gives and gave me the belov error at startup, not showing me anything else, forcing me to quit, just to repeat it.
I've tried, un- and reinstaling, rewinding the computer, changing locale back, restarting and a little more.
The first restart showed i could launch the game and play without a problem. Trying to load a save caused a different error, quiting, and back to previous error below
Several restarts showed a delay of about 1 min from boot to error.
As long as i'm in the game, I can play till I encounter another and/or different error. Once played aprox. 2 hours.
I've talked Dev. and it's not a problem from his side.
I also tried an earlier version of the game, i last played a month ago in the middle of december, and same problem now and none then.

I am looking for any help at all i, any idea that can help me.

Please

And I'm sorry if this is the wrong place.

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While loading <'Tile' <'Image' u'_transparent_tile.png'> None>:
IOError: Couldn't find file '_transparent_tile.png'.

Is the file present on your system? It should be in renpy/common.

Then I don't know why your computer can't find it.
