Up Topic Gosu / Gosu Exchange / ocra deployment, window mode
- - By ? Date 2010-12-27 04:45

I'm trying to deploy my game using ocra, everything is working okay except that if I build my .rbw or a .rb with --windows forced, the game never launches. a .rb with no --windows launches just fine, but with a command prompt. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

I've used for a lot of games and never seen this, so I have no idea. I know is good on answering emails though :).

If you have a puts() statement or *anything* in your code which writes to the console, the game will crash when there is none. Oh, the wonders of Windows. :)

Yep; caused me a lot of trouble before I worked it out. The easy way around this is to forward the output to a file, so it doesn't stop the exe running.

  # You'll want to redirect stdout too
  original_stderr = $stderr.dup
  $stderr.reopen File.join(LOG_PATH, 'stderr.log')
  $stderr.sync = true

  # run the game itself


Full example code
