Hello, I am new to this so just bare with me. I am building the program Zombie Arena from the book Beginning C++ Game Programming and for some reason when I enter debug mode to run the game, no images appear on the window. I checked each line to make sure that there were no errors and the syntax is correct. My libraries are linked correctly and the path to my image folder is correct, I just cant seem to figure out why my images aren't appearing on my window. When the game runs all I see is a black screen, and when I ALT-TAB to check the debug window there are no errors that show up. If anyone can help that'd be great thanks.  :)

Do you check what loadFromFile returns?

well then, we'll need to see the code.
Visit my game site (and hopefully help funding it? )

what if you're not in debug mode ?

what if you build the exe and run the exe directly --- outside of the IDE
