Failed to load image
« on: March 11, 2024, 07:09:30 am »
hello guys, i have another problem. here's my code:

#include <SFML/Graphics.hpp>
#include <iostream>
using namespace sf;
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    RenderWindow window(VideoMode::getFullscreenModes()[0], "Chess Fantasy", Style::Fullscreen);
    Texture board, wr, wp;
    if (!board.loadFromFile("board.png") ||
        !wr.loadFromFile("wr.png") ||
        !wp.loadFromFile("wp.png"));
    {
        cerr << "Failed to load textures." << endl;
        return 1;
    }

    float centerX = window.getSize().x / 2.0f;
    float centerY = window.getSize().y / 2.0f;

    RectangleShape board1(Vector2f(800, 800));
    board1.setTexture(&board);
    RectangleShape wr1(Vector2f(100, 100));
    wr1.setTexture(&wr);
    board1.setPosition(centerX - board1.getLocalBounds().width / 2, centerY - 400);
    wr1.setPosition(centerX - board1.getLocalBounds().width / 2, centerY + 300);
    RectangleShape wp1(Vector2f(100, 100));
    wp1.setTexture(&wp);
    wp1.setPosition(centerX - board1.getLocalBounds().width / 2, centerY + 200);


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

        window.clear();
        window.draw(board1);
        window.draw(wr1);
        window.draw(wp1);
        window.display();
    }

}

in my project's folder and debug folder i have board.png, wr.png, wp.png. but without any reason, it says "Failed to load textures." Other people have a reason, but i don't. also, i tried to insert the path to the file, but then it said "Failed to load textures. Reason: Unable to open file."

so, how do i fix that?

Do you run the program directly or through IDE? Usually, IDE has working space and could be different than where you have exe files.

The default when running from visual studio is to make the working directory where the .vcxproj file is. But this can be changed in the project settings (Change $(ProjectDir) to $(TargetDir) in the working directory to look where the .exe is instead of the .vcxproj)
