Game does not start after build
1 week, 1 day ago Edited by Meerkat on May 16, 2020, 6:31 p.m. Reason: Initial post
I have built game source code 601 and have been using art assets 536. However, the game does not start.

I have been following the intsructions from the readme.txt file, but no luck.

One thing I changed in the built.bat file is the enabling of HANDMADE_INTERNAL.

After running c:\build\win32_handmade.exe executable from within the c:\handmade directory, 2 files were created in folder data, namely:

base_game.hha (approx. 136 Mb)
intro_cutscene.hha (approx. 343 Mb)

However, if I start the game once again, so after creating these 2 files, then nothing seems to happen, I just get to see a black window that closes itself after 3 seconds.

Does anyone have an idea of what is going wrong ?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Have you try launching the game from Visual Studio and see what's causing it to close ?
