Problem starting SFML 2.0 with CodeBlocks
« on: January 22, 2013, 09:36:28 am »
When i try to run a program using the sample code in the setup tutorial, the program starts then straight away has an error.
I am using codeblocks with SFML 2.0 made for codeblocks.
The error is the "name.exe has stopped working"
I'm using SFML_STATIC, and i linked the libraries like this in release mode:
sfml-graphics-s
sfml-window-s
sfml-system-s

I copied all the DLLs to the folder.
Here is my main.cpp:

Quote
#include <SFML/Graphics.hpp>

int main()
{
    sf::RenderWindow window(sf::VideoMode(200, 200), "SFML works!");
    sf::CircleShape shape(100.f);
    shape.setFillColor(sf::Color::Green);

    while (window.isOpen())
    {
        sf::Event event;
        while (window.pollEvent(event))
        {
            if (event.type == sf::Event::Closed)
                window.close();
        }

        window.clear();
        window.draw(shape);
        window.display();
    }

    return 0;
}

This probably won't help, but worth a shot. 

Here is my debug setup (I'm a completely new to SFML, so take the advice with a grain of salt ; ).  I have a little bit different setup then http://www.sfml-dev.org/tutorials/2.0/start-cb.php ...

I think I may have used this tutorial:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=LbWavdiod1Q#!
He covers both dynamic and static links.  Static links start around 6.30



Don't forget your #define SFML_STATIC
This is on the *very* top one -- that is I clicked SFML_Proj1 and wen to the appropriate section




Here are my two relevant settings on the debug sub section

Oh woops -- that was a different section that I forgot to label.

Project->Properties->C/C++ Parser Options

Thankyou for the help, unfortunatly, i still get the same error.
It compiles properly, but as soon as the program starts, it has an error. If i remove all the SFML coding from main.cpp and make a program that doesn't use SFML, it doesn't crash.

I'm guessing you DL'ed / and have latest version of CodeBlocks/mingw and the right sfml zip
http://www.sfml-dev.org/download/2.0-rc/SFML-2.0-rc-windows-32-gcc4-sjlj.zip

Sorry I wasn't much help -- hopefully someone else will have the solution :}.

I get those crashes a lot of times from pointer stuff, but your basic program shouldn't be doing that o_o.

What's your exact version of GCC?
 Because if it's >= 4.7.x then you'll have to recompile SFML on your own (or use my nightly builds).

Oh wow.. I didn't realize Code:Blocks was up to v 12 now o_o.


I think you'll find your GCC version:

C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeBlocks\MinGW

should be a changelog file.

I had a similar runtime crash problem and using that same nightly build fixed it too :)
