Game Window Flicker

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a question about getting my game to run on certain peoples PC's. I recently compiled my game to test on a few friends PC's to see how it would run. The game runs completely fine when compiled on my computer as well as one of my friends computers. I tested 2 other computers and they initially had a missing OpenAL32 error, so I installed OpenAL on one of those PC's. I no longer get that error when trying to launch the game but now the game window opens for a second and closes directly after. I'm not sure if something else needs to be installed on the PC or OpenAL has not been installed correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Go into the users appdata folder and check out the log file to see if it leads to any clues. I think that folder is hidden by default so you'll need to turn that on or perhaps just navigate directly to it in the address bar.

 

C:\Users\Rick\AppData\Local\RTS

 

Where 'Rick' is that person's username and 'RTS' is the name of your game.

Thanks for the reply Rick. This is what was inside of the log file on the PC that is currently not running the game.

His PC isn't powerful enough is what I'm getting from that. I think it needs to be HD Graphics 4000.

Alright, thanks for the help Rick. I'm going to try the PC I originally got the OpenAL32 error with OpenAL installed tomorrow and see if it will run.
