directx error

#1 Post by aJax » Mon Feb 19, 2018 9:32 am

I am trying to run renpy.exe on win 7. I got the following error:


I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:

Directx is installed and works well. It might come from the pygame_sdl2 library. It does the same with all 6.99.x versions. Versions 6.18.3 and earlier work well. I tried on another computer and it works well.

Any idea?

Thanks

6.99 is much newer, and runs on SDL2. It's hard to tell why it's not working on that computer - log.txt might have more details.

No clue from this, other than maybe try downloading and unpacking Ren'Py again?

Did it already. I guess I'll just use another computer. Thanks for your replies.
