game.exe no game?

Post by Karasuro » Mon Apr 23, 2018 5:22 am

Hey guys, so I'm using 11.0 now and it seams when creating a .exe for a game that works as a .love causes Love to say there is no game running. Is anyone else having this issue and how do I fix it? I'm on Windows 7.

Did you zip up your game folder itself, or its contents? I'm guessing the former; do the latter and it should work.
Edit: I checked out the zip you posted, the zip combined with the exe was made correctly (although i couldn't test it because of missing dll-s...), so i don't know what the issue could have been; that said, you do need to distribute a few dll files as well, with the exe, otherwise others can't run it.

Me and my stuff :3True Neutral Aspirant. Why, yes, i do indeed enjoy sarcastically correcting others when they make the most blatant of spelling mistakes. No bullying or trolling the innocent tho.

I redid the process again and it's working this time but the contents of the archive haven't changed between the two.. odd. Maybe it was just something with the batch script.
