Cannot launch project (no error message either)

#1 Post by kuuui » Mon Jan 07, 2019 1:17 am

Hello, this is my first post.

I'm a beginner so I probably made a really stupid mistake, but essentially, I'm making an rpg styled inventory for my game, and everything was going fine. However, when I tried to add descriptions for my items in the inventory and tried to launch my project, it wouldn't launch.
Normally renpy would give me an error message that tells me where I got things wrong. This time though, there were no error messages. The terminal app (I'm on a mac) appears for a second on the doc, then disappears, then nothing else happens.

I'm pretty sure I did something funny in my code that caused this, as this wasn't occurring before. I would be super grateful if anyone knows how to fix this. Thanks.

That's strange.

You could start with checking if you can launch any of the two projects included in Ren'py (Tutorial or the Question). If you can launch them then at least the problem is in the project you are working with.

You can try to take the last things you have added to your script out by adding # in front of those lines and see if you then can launch the game.

In your projects folder you will find three text files, errors.txt, log.txt, traceback.txt. You might (or not) find some useful information on what went wrong there.

I hope things work out for you.

Thank you so much! Checking log.txt really helped.
Turns out I just made a stupid mistake of not giving enough arguments in __init__().
Thanks again.
