Texture is not rendered
« on: December 01, 2022, 08:31:53 pm »
Hi,
I am trying to render a texture but I get only a black screen everytime I compile the code without any error. It compiles just fine with the examples from sfml website.
** I am on macOS, using CLion.
void Player::initializeTexture() {
/*
     * A texture will be loaded from a file.
     */



    if(!this->texture.loadFromFile("/Users/ismailsafwat/CLionProjects/ShapeShooters/Textures/sfmliconbig.png")){
        std::cout << "ERROR::PLAYER::INITIALIZETEXTURE::Failed to load the file!" << "\n";
    }
}

Hey, you forgot your "C:" at the beginning of the file path. You're on Windows right?

If you don't want a full file path look here:

Sorry for not mentioning that, I edited the post now. No, I am on macOS.

Does the file load successfully?

yes, I assume it loads successfully because I do not get any error message.

Just fixed it today, it was the order of the function implementation that caused it.
