[Resolved] Game loads and closes

#1 Post by Gear » Thu May 08, 2014 9:10 pm

Having an issue that's driving me up the wall. Every time I load my game to test it, the window appears, then vanishes. The first time, I ran LINT, and it told me that since the game wouldn't open, then it can't run a LINT. So, when I searched my code from top to bottom, and found the issue, I ran LINT again, and it opened fine. But when I launched my game, the window once again appears, then vanishes before even one second elapses.

I realize that without posting every piece of code in my gigantic game, you can't give me any specific help, but has anyone come across this before and maybe have some general tips for this type of thing?

The best reason to get up in the morning is to outdo yourself: to do it better than you've ever done it before. But if you haven't done it better by nightfall... look at your globe and pick a spot: it's always morning somewhere.

Latest version of Ren'Py? There was a recent bug with having a presplash image that was causing ren'py to close immediately similarly to what you describe. It is now fixed though.

That worked! I just updated recently (presumably because the school year kept me from working much) and didn't realize there was a new one out. Thanks so much!
