Post by jblaze » 22 Apr 2017, 18:35

Try send one of the levs to someone (for example me) and have them try to start it, will know if it's the level or something with your game/system that's the issue then.

code can't open the file with fopen given null terminated strong
that can happen if elma was in a subfolder of some folder with unicode characters in its name or some other shit like that where 1byte char isn't enough

it started working after i moved elma to external memory - pendrive, worked after moving to 2nd hdd partiton also (D:). copying in the area of C: disc doesn't work.
@Kopaka - lev was not a problem, levels tested on flawed folder worked on new ones
@milagros - it was definitely not a case - no weird chars, elma folder was not moved anyways, its direction is the same as it used to be

Sounds kinda like an autorun virus on the C harddrive. Does other programs open files?
