Graphics / LoadFromFile issues in VS2012
« on: May 11, 2013, 09:34:24 pm »

Whenever I try to call LoadFromFile, all I get is a message in the console that says 'failed to load "texture.png' followed by a long stream of gibberish, without ever closing the quote marks on texture.png. In addition, I get a seemingly random sequence of beeps coming out of my speakers. While reading I found that this can be a result of trying to access a file that does not exist, but the error still happens when I write out the full file path, e.g. "C:\Users\Username\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\SFML Game1\Debug\ball.jpg". I am completely lost and hoping someone can offer some insight.


using namespace sf;

int main()
    Texture myText;
        if (!myText.loadFromFile("Ball.jpg"))
                return 1;
    return 0;

Where Ball.jpg is in the directory "C:\Users\Username\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\SFML Game1\Debug" and "C:\Users\Username\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\SFML Game1\SFML Game1"
