Hello guys, I played with some stuff in darkGDK and I just finish the first part of my game, it works just fine when starting it from the VSC++ Compiler 2008, but when I copy the debugged game with its files, into a new directory, and try to start the Game.exe

All I see is this black window??
And I dont see any errors, are there some files/depencies wich I need
to add to the new directory ??

thanks in advanced.

Absolute Path: Example

Use relative paths. If that’s not the problem. Then we can’t help without code or more info.

If you keep all your gaming media files in one central location for all your projects, another way of doing it that doesn't involve lengthy pathnames in every filename loaded:

If DarkGDK tries to load a (media) file that it can't find, it keeps quiet about it. However if you're using Spary's collision, it will give a generic runtime error for non-existent objects (among other things). You can tell if a load was successful or not by checking that the image (or object or whatever media you're loading) exists after loading it. For example:

I always insert a line like that after a load in a debug session if I need to track something like that down.
