love 0.7.1 does not start (Win XP)

Post by knorke » Wed Feb 16, 2011 2:56 am

Hey
after some break i was in the mood for löve again and downloaded 0.7.1
Sadly it does not start, when clicking love.exe nothing happens.
Only the mouse cursor turns into an hourglass for half a seconde, there is no error message or logfile (at least not in love folder)
In irc i was given this link: http://bitbucket.org/rude/love/download ... in-x86.exe
but it has the same problem.

I tried:
installer+zip version
different paths
made sure folder is writeable

Old install of Love 0.6.2 still works.

My PC:
Windows XP 32bit
AMD 2800+
1 GB RAM
gfx card: Nvidia 6800

Have you downloaded the latest graphics driver for your graphics card? I had the same problem in 0.7.0 and that is how I fixed it.

Not the latest but one that works with all other games/programs I use...
But good idea, I'll try that in some weeks (atm i need pc) and maybe they have added some errorlog to love until then ;)

I hope that gets fixed because otherwise a lot of older computers that run löve just fine (like mine :crazy: ) would be left out.
Those older computers are probally a big target plattform for many löve games, it would be a shame to lose that...
