Game Immediately Crashes!

  • #1, by ygmantellFriday, 30. June 2017, 07:11 3 years ago
    So basically, after adding a certain scene object (a relatively simple one to a relatively empty scene), the game window crashes the second I run it!  

    Ive tried deleting the object, duplicating the scene and running it from the new one, restarted the editor, updated graphic drivers, everything!  
    Before I added in the scene object, everything worked fine (except a resolution issue I mention in another thread), but it persists even after I delete it.

    (The scene is the first/only scene so far).

    Nothing seems to work!
    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Thanks so much!

    My game crashed when I had slightly overlapping wayborders. Really small things can cause a chrash. (and are hard to find) Maybe in your case there is a stray point of your object polygon in an awkward place?

    Overlapping way borders in two different areas of the scene, or like a stray point that made a side of the border overlap with another side?
    (If that made any sense smile )

    Thanks!

    EDIT:  Also, does it make sense that the error would persist even after I delete the (only) scene?(!)
    I guess I can try making a new scene with more open way borders and see if that works...

    My way borders are pretty tight, as I am making a sidescrolling game.

    Thanks!

    Oooookkkay then!
    I made the way borders a little less tight and it fixed it!
    But, it only worked after removed a way point that was off screen and moved in the way borders from off screen.

    I wanted the player to be able to walk offscreen to switch to a different scene, so I figured that would be the way to do it.  Is that not correct?

    Thank you so much!

    Deleting your only scene will always crash your game. You have to have at least one scene.

    If you can move the wayborders outside your scene is something I will have to test. I don't think I tried that...

    I meant deleting that scene and making another, simpler one.  But, fixing the wayborders/points fixed it!  I guess Ill try again to see if the character can walk offscreen, albeit more carefully this time.

    Thank you all so much for your help!
