      Download the Game Design and Indie Game Marketing Freebook   07/19/17

      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

Say I have:

class errorManager{
private:
vector<string> n1;
vector<string>n2;
std::string name;

public:
errorManager() { name = test.txt; }
void addtext(std::string first,std::string second){
ofstream file;
    file.open (name, ios::out | ios::app);
    

    file << error << endl;
    file << endl;
    file << error_desc;
    file << endl;

n1.push_back(first);
n2.push_back(second);
    file.close();
}
};

and I have another class that just has a member of one of the above types.That class contains a function,that simply calls addtext("t","t")

Both classes are placed in a dll and have ALL their functions __declspec(dllexport)

 

STILL if I create a project,include only the errorManager dll,create an object of that type and call addtext("t","t") i get NO error!

 

This is where the error redirects me:

	if (_Inside(_Ptr))
		return (assign(*this, _Ptr - _Myptr(), _Count));	// substring

		if (_Grow(_Count))
			{	// make room and assign new stuff
			_Traits::copy(_Myptr(), _Ptr, _Count);
			_Eos(_Count);
			}
		return (*this);
		}

The error: Microsoft Visual Studio C Runtime Library has detected a fatal error ...

I ment name = "test.txt"; that is the name of the file where it should output text.

 

And by stack from the crash what do you exactly mean?

In visual studio there is a window called the "call stack". It shows you the nested calls that were made that resulted in your crash.

You are crashing in STL which by itself isn't really helpful usually. What you want to know is what code you actually wrote is calling the STL and causing the crash.

FORGOT TO ADD: There are 2 vector<string> inside that class,they both get a new item when addtext is called(edited the first post code)

You say you get no error, does it work? Does it add text to a file for you?

Did you export the template classes you are using?

Yes,the file is created and text is added to it,no problems.

 

SiCrane,not sure what you mean.This is probably my first adventure in dll land.Can you explain a little?

Can you post the calling code?

Also where are you exporting the add_text method ? I am wondering if it is inlining it in your app and causing dll boundary problems. Templates and dlls can be quite a pain to keep in check.

errorManager x;
x.set_errorfile("ia.txt");
x.add_error("sada","dsadsa");

That one works just fine.

 

This one however:

clstext y;
y.addtext("s","s");

I did not call the seterrorfile function since the default constructor sets one.

 

 

In the original project I never define any functions in the header file.In the header file I just have the declarations with the __declspec(dllexport)
