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.

SDL error-Process terminated with status 3 (* minute(s), * second(s))

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

First of all: I'm a student with 2 years of experience in Java that still does not have idea if it's matrix[x][y] or matrix[y][x] so this error might be easy to fix or just dumb on my part, sorry if it is.

Okay, so i'm making a "port" of a rougue-like game i made in java 5-6 months ago becouse i found out that c++ with the right packages is way better... i finally found a way to make my code work but it gives a strange error when i run it (I'm using SDL), it says "Process terminated with status 3 (0 minute(s), 0 second(s))". the code is:

Main.cpp:

#include "SDL/SDL.h"
#include "SDL/SDL_image.h"
#include "bin/Graphic.h"
#include <math.h>
#include <string>
#include <fstream>

const int MAP_SIZE = 100;
const int LINE_SIZE = 10;
SDL_Surface *screen=NULL;
SDL_Surface *block_textures=NULL;
class Blocco
{
    public:
        SDL_Rect *sprite;
        int x,y;
        bool solid;
        int id;
        Blocco(){}
        Blocco(SDL_Rect *_sprite,int _x,int _y,bool _solid,int _id)
        {
            this->sprite = _sprite;
            this->x=_x;
            this->y=_y;
            this->solid=_solid;
            this->id=_id;
        }
        void show(SDL_Surface *source,SDL_Surface *destination)
        {
            apply_surface(this->x,this->y,source,destination,this->sprite);
        }
};
Blocco mappa[10][10];
class Player:public Blocco
{
    public:
        int health;
        int max_health;
        Player(SDL_Rect *_sprite,int _x,int _y,bool _solid,int _id,int _health,int _max_health):Blocco(_sprite,_x,_y,_solid,_id)
        {
            this->health = _health;
            this->max_health = _max_health;
        }
};
void load_map(Blocco loadedMap[][10],std::string filename,int maxTile)
{
    std::ifstream map(filename.c_str(),std::ifstream::in);
    int x=0;
    int y=0;

    for(int t=0;t<MAP_SIZE;t++)
    {
        int tileType=-1;
        map>>tileType;

        if((tileType>=0)&&(tileType<maxTile))
        {
            SDL_Rect *temp=NULL;temp->x=(tileType*16);temp->y=0;temp->h=16,temp->w=16;
            bool solid;
            if(tileType==0||tileType==2){solid=true;}else{solid=false;}
            Blocco supp(temp,x,y,solid,tileType);
            loadedMap[x][y]=supp;
            x++;
            if(x==LINE_SIZE) //da testare!
            {
                x=0;
                y++;
            }
        }
    }
    map.close();
}
void refresh()
{
    for(int y=0;y<LINE_SIZE;y++)
    {
        for(int x=0;x<LINE_SIZE;x++)
        {
            mappa[x][y].show(block_textures,screen);
        }
    }
}

int main(int argc,char *argv[])
{
    SDL_Init(SDL_INIT_EVERYTHING);
    screen = SDL_SetVideoMode(160,160,32,SDL_SWSURFACE);
    block_textures = load_image("textures/blocks.bmp");
    load_map(mappa,"maps/map01.txt",MAP_SIZE);
    refresh();
    SDL_Delay(10000);
    SDL_Quit();
    return 0;
}

Graphic.h:

#include "SDL/SDL.h"
#include "SDL/SDL_image.h"
#include <string>

SDL_Surface* load_image(std::string filename)
{
	SDL_Surface* loadedImage = NULL;
	SDL_Surface* optimizedImage = NULL;
	loadedImage = IMG_Load(filename.c_str());
	if(loadedImage != NULL)
	{
		optimizedImage = SDL_DisplayFormat(loadedImage);
		SDL_FreeSurface(loadedImage);
	}
	if(optimizedImage!=NULL)
	{
		Uint32 colorkey = SDL_MapRGB(optimizedImage->format,0,0xFF,0xFF);
		SDL_SetColorKey(optimizedImage,SDL_SRCCOLORKEY,colorkey);
	}
	return optimizedImage;
}
void apply_surface(int x,int y,SDL_Surface* source,SDL_Surface* destination)
{
	SDL_Rect offset;
	offset.x = x;
	offset.y = y;
	SDL_BlitSurface(source,NULL,destination,&offset);
}
void apply_surface(int x,int y,SDL_Surface *source,SDL_Surface *destination,SDL_Rect *clip)
{
	SDL_Rect offset;
	offset.x = x;
	offset.y = y;
	SDL_BlitSurface(source,clip,destination,&offset);
}

I know it's messy and i'll move the function and classes around once i polish it up (or maybe i should do it now?)

Anyway, after a bit of testing and troubleshooting i found the error to be in the function "load_map" as expected (I'm not really sure how to use the file interactions in C++)... I googled the problem and a lot of people say it's an empty pointer but i've checked and it dowsn't look like it, anyone has any idea of how to fix this? biggrin.png

 

Edit: I'm using Code::Blocks and MinGw for editing and compiling, if you need any description of the code (what it does, why is it like this ecc) I'll try to provide more information as soon as I check the post

The only problem I can spot is that temp is null when you are trying to assign to temp->x, etc.

Thanks for the reply!
Now it works, it was just some problem with the empty pointer (but my code still doesn't do what i want )= )

The term you are looking for is 'null pointer'. 'Empty pointer' is not really a standing expression and might result in misunderstandings.

Thanks for the explanation, I'm not very good with english so sometimes i just misspell or I can't find the right words.
btw: now my program works fully :D
