I've installed Ruby and Gosu and Chingu on numerous Windows systems without any real trouble. Today I did the same procedure as always, but for some reason it didn't work. I'm getting a strange error which I've never encountered before, and unfortunately it sounds like people who are trying out StickBall on the GameDev.net PUTT Contest
are running into the same problem. I tried out several different Chingu-based games, which had previously have worked in the same situation, and I got the same results - a problem loading basic images:
new': allocator undefined for
I am perplexed as to why this is happening, when previously I have performed the same install with no difficulty whatsoever. I tried with different versions of Gosu and Chingu, and it didn't seem to make a difference, although I did not exhaust all the possible gem version combinations. Is there a preferred, most-stable, Gosu version X, Chingu version Y combination which might improve the odds of success?
Here is a screenshot which was sent to me by one of the other contestants in the PUTT challenge, reflecting the same issue:
Any thoughts as to what might be causing this?
