My stand-alone game won't work

Postby Katagi » Sun Feb 13, 2011 2:50 am

Hello there

I'm new to Novelty but how can I make my stand alone game work.I already exported it to 'stand alone game' and all was well.But when I tried to run the stand alone game, It froze when the game was just about to start.

Replies would be very appreciated :D

When you exported the game and tried to start it, it should have created a log.txt file in the folder to which you exported the game.
Post the contents of the log.txt file and one of the gurus here might be able to help.

Sorry it's not working for you. I don't think I'll be much help, but if you answer some of the questions one of the gurus might be able to give you some advice.

With the game open, press the f7 key (this plays the game in stand-alone mode). Does it play okay?
What version of Windows are you using? Is it 32 bit or 64 bit?
Did you set any options in the Options tab of the "Export as Stand-alone" window?

very respectfully,
fleet

We had such gurus here ...?:D

Another question, did any kind of error-message pop up when starting the game, when exporting the game or (if you use scripts) when compiling those?

Sorry for the wait >.<

@fleet

1.The game freezes even if I play it in stand alone
2.I have a 32-bit operating system, Vista
3.Well...I did check compile content

@Avaible

No there weren't any errors, Unless you consider windows saying that Player.exe stopped working :/ while starting the game (which immediately froze)
However when I do hit the button 'play novel from the beginning' in Novelty, it does fine.

Player.exe is not the file to run. You'll find your executable in the Build folder.

Actually, what does Player.exe even do?

Player.exe is the stand-alone player but it won't run on its own.

Novelty will run it when you press the preview as stand-alone button in Novelty. When you export as a stand-alone Novelty will make a copy of Player.exe and then modify it to load and run your game.
So stand-alone games are modified copies of Player.exe, but not the same exactly.

I didn't click the file called 'Player.exe' :?

I clicked the stand alone game itself.It froze and windows gave me a message that said 'Player.exe stopped working'

Could you give some screen-shots?
Which file you opened and in which folder.

If "Player.exe stopped working" then you or Novelty ran Player.exe, but it shouldn't crash to begin with.

Hmmm, I could have sworn Windows said 'Player.exe' rather than 'Untitled.exe'.
Sorry

What happens if you disable the "Compile content" option?
