Also not sure if I'm right but this is my

WindowManagment.cpp
#include "stdafx.h"
#include "WindowManagment.h"
#include "Genesis.h"

/**
Launches the render window.
*/

sf::RenderWindow& WindowManager::LaunchRenderWindow()
{
        Genesis genesis;
        if(genesis.Windowed)
        {
                create(sf::VideoMode(genesis.WindowX,genesis.WindowY,32),"Genesis");
        }else{
                short int X;
                short int Y;
                GetDesktopResolution(X,Y);
                create(sf::VideoMode(X,Y,32),"Genesis",sf::Style::Fullscreen);
        }
        return * this;
}
/**
Detects desktop resolution and adjusts the X and Y variables accordingly.
*/

void WindowManager::GetDesktopResolution(short int&X,short int&Y)
{
        RECT desktop;
        const HWND hDesktop = GetDesktopWindow();
        GetWindowRect(hDesktop, &desktop);
    X = desktop.right;
    Y = desktop.bottom;
}
/**
Recieves a true or false and enables/disables vertical sync accordingly.
*/

void WindowManager::SetVerticalSync(bool a)
{
        if(a)
                setVerticalSyncEnabled(true);
        else
                setVerticalSyncEnabled(false);
}
/**
Recieves a true or false and enables/disables showing the mouse curser.
*/

void WindowManager::ShowCourser(bool a)
{
        if(a)
                setMouseCursorVisible(true);
        else
                setMouseCursorVisible(false);
}
/**
Recieves a short int and sets the framerate limit to it. Must be between 15 - 60,
*/

void WindowManager::SetFramerateLimit(short int a)
{
        if(a>60) a=60;
        if(a<15) a=15;

        setFramerateLimit(a);
}
 

and this is it's header
#ifndef WINDOWMANAGER_H
#define WINDOWMANAGER_H
#include "stdafx.h"
class WindowManager : sf::RenderWindow{

public:
        sf::RenderWindow& LaunchRenderWindow();
        sf::RenderWindow& GetRenderWindow();

        void SetResolution(short int x,short int y);
        void SetFullscreen(bool a);
        void SetVerticalSync(bool a);
        void ShowCourser(bool a);
    void SetFramerateLimit(short int a);

private:
        void GetDesktopResolution(short int&X,short int&Y);

};
#endif
 

But when I try to launch a window with:

        WindowManager windowManager;
        sf::RenderWindow & renderWindow = windowManager.LaunchRenderWindow();
 

from my Genesis.cpp, I get the following:

Quote
Error   14   error LNK1120: 2 unresolved externals   C:\Users\Travis\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\Genesis\Debug\Genesis.exe   Genesis

....Not sure what I did wrong...

Also, do... I really have to make a object of Genesis while in Genesis.cpp? That seems kinda... odd. xD Or do I only have to make a object in the "main" and then run something like genesis.Initialize(); ?
What does seem 'odd'?

Oh it's ok, I think I figured out a lot of it. XD But now I'm stuck on that unresolved external symbol error, and have no idea whats causing it. >_<

Did you recompile sfml yourself? Did you try linking to dynamic libraries, (get the dlls to your directory and remove -s from names in linker settings). I never ran into that error.

I did compile SFML myself with CMake and Visual Studio 2012.

Oddly enough, I get no error if I use regular sf::Window. But then again, that doesn't really "work"
 It does open a window, but the window is not on the screen anywhere and you cant ever see it. >_> Perhaps something in the code is not right? Maybe Its being deleted or something? Idk I'm just coming up with ideas.

Hm.... I'll go dig out the dynamic libraries and see what happens.....

So it compiles with the non static libraries. o.O; So why wont the static libraries work. ???

Also, my window isn't there. I see it in the task bar, but it never actually pops up, well, at least I never actually see it. I still am not sure why this works only with the dynamic libraries...... >_> Or why my window doesn't actually work, work. Hmm Any ideas for testing out and finding why? I'm all ears. :)

Please read the documentation of sfml and tutorials before use..
to display a window you have to call display() on it(very unintuitive, I know..)

Mhm I even tried:

        WindowManager windowManager;
        sf::RenderWindow& renderWindow = windowManager.LaunchRenderWindow();

        while(!isClosing())
        {
                renderWindow.display();
        }
 

No visible window. It opens, but nothing is actually there, no window. I see it in the task bar, that's all.

I still am also concerned as to why the static libraries don't work. I think whatever caused those libraries not to work, and my window to glitch out, is related.

I've started to trace the cause of the static library error so far if I remove

WindowManager windowManager;
 

I can compile without error. I cant open a window mind you, but I can compile without error.

Also I found that if I don't remove the code, but empty out the WindowManager class completely, I still get the error.

The error is that

WindowManager windowManager;
 
Is making a new object of a "sf::RenderWindow" "because WindowManager was declared with " : sf::Renderwindow"" and that is whats throwing the error.  Now the question, ....why is it throwing the error? *goes back to digging through code*

So I still don't know why but I've found that it IS the combination of

class WindowManager : sf::RenderWindow

and

WindowManager windowManager;

If I change either of them the problem goes away. But that doesnt actually fix the problem. hmm..

Please tell me if I'm wrong but if I remember right the sf::RenderWindow is non copyable and wouldn't turning it into a object.....be making a copy of it since that object is "glued" to the sf::RenderWindow?

It may also be worth mentioning that sf::Window also does the same thing, and doesn't actually show up when Display is called. "Thats right sf::window doesn't throw the error :D .....still doesn't work, but it doesnt throw a error with the static libraries, but I still am clueless as to why my window wont show...."

If you are having that much trouble due to trying to make a static window class handle everything when you don't have a good understanding on how to use the window normally then start with some basic window handling and then move on to your fancy class, wrappers around that kind of stuff tend to be very tricky to use (I am making an openGL with shaders wrapper that is taking far longer than I thought it would take)...

Not to mention that using a window in SFML is quite easy, you just need to know it's correct syntax and it should go smooth.

But this should work the way I have it setup though. *also the window class is not static, I went away from static stuff because it seemed unstable. ;)

In  fact. I'll try making a quickie window in the main class.

*5min later*

As I thought, normally it works just fine...

So It would appear my issue is the way in which I'm referencing from my WindowManager class..... but I took 70% of that code directly from a working example I made a few months back >_< Anything you see that looks kinda wrong, or "ify" ? To me it seems like the window may be being created, but immediately destroyed when it leaves that class. But if I make it static ..... *sigh

Well yea, only this time I inherited the whole WindowManager with sf::Window.

So I wouldn't have to use references when making the window, to make the window I could just use:

eWindow.Launch();

Which uses

//Header file
#ifndef WINDOWMANAGER_H
#define WINDOWMANAGER_H
#include "stdafx.h"
class EngineWindow : public sf::Window
{
public:
        void Launch();
};
#endif

//Class File
void EngineWindow::Launch()
{
        Log consoleLog;
        consoleLog.info("Launching Window...");
        Genesis genesis;
        if(genesis.Windowed)
        {
                create(sf::VideoMode(genesis.WindowX,genesis.WindowY,32),"Genesis");
        }else{
                short int X;
                short int Y;
                GetDesktopResolution(X,Y);
                create(sf::VideoMode(X,Y,32),"Genesis",sf::Style::Fullscreen);
        }
}
 

Inside the EngineWindow class *I renamed WindowManager to EngineWindow*

Then display it with:

       
while(true)
        {
        eWindow.display();
        }

But it never displayed because I think its being de allocated and destroyed for whatever reason, its not persisting. :/ I mean, what I have should work, shouldn't it?

And now I'm back to the

Quote
First-chance exception at 0x776AF592 (ntdll.dll) in Genesis.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation writing location 0x00000004.
The program '[8284] Genesis.exe' has exited with code 0 (0x0).

Error. I even reverted back ALL of my code to when it at least started up this morning, and I STILL have that error after undoing everything. So it should work, everything should work, but it doesn't. Amd oh, I'm sure it will probably work with the dynamic libraries, but I want to know why the static ones throw such a fit over everything when they were working two hours ago.

Oh, and ONCE again, the error is caused by making my WindowManager into a object like:

WindowManager windowManager;

and BAM exception.

This to me indicates for whatever reason:

class EngineWindow : public sf::Window

Does not want to be made into a object, specifically the " : public sf::Window" part.

Ok and now, figure out why this works.

        EngineWindow eWindow;
        eWindow.Launch();
 

I literally deleted, the re wrote that code, and now it works. I still don't have a window, but it doesn't throw an error.

HAHAHAha

And now visual studio is telling me

Quote
Error   1   error LNK1168: cannot open C:\Users\Travis\documents\visual studio 2012\Projects\Genesis\Debug\Genesis.exe for writing   C:\Users\Travis\documents\visual studio 2012\Projects\Genesis\Genesis\LINK   Genesis

Now I just tried it again *after getting that error 5 times in a row* and it worked without me changing anything.

Any ideas on that one? Or on just how unstable everything is all together?

ALSO, I am having an issue. I can define "Genesis::Windowed=false;" and everything in the Genesis class will read it as false "most of the time" but all other classes that make it a object read it as true. ???

That error means that you have your app open.
We can't know why things are unstable because you post one hundredth of your code every time..

Ok, Here is some code. :P *you could have asked for more....*

I got my window working.

Turns out that the value wasn't being carried between objects for

   
 bool Windowed; //Located in Genesis.h

So I changed it to:

   
 static bool Windowed; //Located in Genesis.h

and it worked but now I have a issue........ it launches in fullscreen........... all of the time. XD

Though, I would love to have a second person look at some of this code. >.>

There, that should be enough code for a while. ^^

Let me know your input tho. I want to do things PROPERLY. XD If someone seems very wrong, its likely I just didn't know how to do it right. ;) Just know, some parts are purposely torn apart right now in attempt to locate problems.

Globals, statics, what's going on ???
..you realize that classes can have other classes as members of themselves?
You are supposed to add genesis to engine as member, not keep recreating it.

Well see, that's something I honestly didn't know! XD How do you make something a member of something else then? Sounds like it would be easy. >.>

Globals? Oh you are refering to....
bool Genesis::Windowed;
bool Genesis::SkipSplash;
bool Genesis::Debug;
bool Genesis::NoConsoleTags;
 
I assume?

I have to declare them in the file otherwise I will get unresolved externals. They also have to be on the global scope because otherwise you get "blah blah blah cannot be defined in the current scope." Basically they are just flags for command line parameters.

I made those static in attempt to fix my window error, but now its just full screen 100% of the time >_< Even when -WM is defined.

But I am interested in hearing more about this member thing. I don't think I remember that in java exactly.... So I look forward to learning. ^^ Sounds kinda similar to Inheritance.... I'm also going to take a wild guess and say that it not being a member is why nothing is getting the proper values stored in those flags unless they are static.
