Program crash when opening music
« on: December 11, 2017, 02:24:05 pm »
So, I have been working on a little project of mine, and I have encountered a bug.
I have a special class for cinematics, where I use two music: a base and a special. I declare them in the header:

#include "Screens/CinematicScreen.h"
#include <SFML/Graphics.hpp>
#include <SFML/Audio.hpp>

class CharaIntroScene : public CinematicScreen
        IntroScene(GameManager* gameManager);
        virtual ~IntroScene();
       sf::Music Base;
       sf::Music Special;


And my source file:
#include "Screens/Cinematics/IntroScene.h"

IntroScene::IntroScene(GameManager* gameManager) : CinematicScreen(gameManager)


and I have a void where I start the music.
This way the game freeze and crash on load.
If I comment out the openFromFile part it loads.

I'm using windows 10 with codeblocks, and the corresponding SFML version.
Everything else is included, the dll files are in place.
And if I use the debugger, everything works, even the music plays. But it only works with the debugger.

So, what can be the problem?

If there's different behavior between debug and release, it usually is a memory problem (e.g. uninitialized memory, etc).

Try to create a minimal example, e.g. take your class, remove the base class and create an instance in main() and see if it's still an issue.

Okay, I put the music out to the main cpp, now it works. It means, that I should use the release files, not the debug ones?

Edit: So, I tried to use the release files. Now, it won't crash, but from loading the music to playing the music, it's lagging.

Edit: I'm confused. It started working with the debug files. I don't know why, maybe I just had to rebuild it. Still, it's lagging a bit until I start playing the music.

Edit: The lagg was my fault. So, the music started playing after I rebuild once with the release files, then againg with the debug files. Thank you for the answers!
