SDL error parachute
Some of my friends have been complaining that my SDL Program doesn't work. in stderr.txt it says 'SDL Error Parachute Deployed.' I have SDL.dll in the folder in it. I even downloaded my file and it works.
does it work for you?

Xterria, your game works for me (but i have tons of SDL stuff installed) If you want I'll have a look at your source. (firstname.lastname@example.org if you dont want to post it)
You're code has flaws in it.. like on exit I get stuck and it freezes.
Try out my sdl framework get it from:
hey that game is pretty cool. cozman is right, though, there are quite a few bugs with the game. and do you plan on adding an ending? you should, also, make the game a little bit more difficult. it's not fair how the good guy can move so much faster. and the mines shouldn't stay stationary. add more guards. basically add more 'cause it's pretty fun to play actually.
thanks for the complements, and i don't even know what the game will be about yet.
i'm still trying to figure out what's wrong...maybe it's the flags when you initalize the video
ok try it again(people who can't get it to work)
i uploaded it again
I managed to get the same error in my code...I don't know where it is originating from exactly, but I narrowed it down to this:
if I use a fscanf in the code, it will generate the error. If I take out all of the fscanf's, the error isn't generated...what's up with it?
yeah my game also reads and writes to files. maybe that's the cause?
aren't there sposed to be experts here?
it's a little less convenient, but using fwrite and fread instead of fprintf and fscanf will fix your code...I figured that out today
i just use fopen() and getc()
still, it doesn't work on other systems
hmmm...I don't know if mine works on other computers or not, but I hope it will (:
oh well i guess ill have to test it on all my other comps
why do i have to do this the hard way when theres dozens of stuck up experts here that know the answer
I wish I knew the answer, because I don't want that stupid error appearing in mine again...(: It took me a couple hours to get rid of it, and it was all guesswork...if I ever figure it out, though, I'll let you know
can someone please investigate this? SDL_Error_Parachute is depoyed when a file is missing. I have no files missing on my computer! Yet, when i put it on another computer, the file is missing. perhaps it is a dll file that only some versions of windows have? can people try out the game and tell me if it works or not and the version of windows your using? many people are having this problem and i intend to find out what's wrong. thanks!
It runs just fine on my comp, After the level with the houses the program closed and stderr.txt says "Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)". Other than that it ran just fine.
ok thats perfectly normal, as there is no level after JorgunTown in the version thats uploaded..thanks
someone else please?
