    Hi,

    I'm using an updated version of VS on macos mojave. When i run my game in the studio the character is seen and moves normally. But when i build the game the character is totally missing (the game loads though). Problem is both in mac and windows build.

    Hello. I had a similar problem. I can't say what exactly helped, but I went as far as completely reinstalling the system and updating all the divers and software!!! :C Try it.

    Hi Rachel,

    Thanks for the insight. Reinstalling the drivers would mean that you run it on windows? I haven't really managed to solve the problem yet but i'll try reinstalling everything and see.

    Try checking the log files. When you compile a build it should also create a txt file called report.txt, which should be a log containing information about the build & links to included files & such things. See if there's any errors listed in that.

    Also you should check out the messages.log file after running the game & encountering any issues - what it prints to that file will depend on what you have the log level set to. You need it to be set to info for it to print both warnings & error messages into the log file. Unfortunately I'm not sure where the messages.log file would be created on Mac - I'm a Windows user myself, & I don't know how to describe how to locate it on Mac.

    I'll send a message to someone on our discord server that uses also uses the Mac version of VS. wink

    as all logfiles of a macOS user application, it goes under Library/Logs:
    ~/Library/Logs/messages.log
