Complete Roguelike Tutorial, using Python+libtcod, problems
This is part of a series of tutorials; the main page can be found here.
If any of the following helps you, please edit the page and add a note about what exactly your problem was. This will allow us to fold back the information into the tutorial to make it clearer and prevent others from having the difficulties you had.
libtcodpy cannot be found
Your project directory, whatever it is called, should contain the following files:
- You may have chosen a different name for your tutorial code file, than
- The file sizes may differ from what the version of libtcod that the tutorial is based around, but if you provide a screenshot of this same information yourself, this is valuable information to give us - as it allows us to have a hint at which version of libtcod you are using.
savegamefile is generated, and you will not have that until later in the tutorial.
libtcodpydirectory is the one that comes from the libtcod release you downloaded.
Where do you execute Python?
Python locates files, like
libtcodpy, based on both what directory you are executing the Python within, and where your tutorial code is located. In the screenshot above, you will note that
firstrl.py is located in the same directory as both
libtcodpy and the dlls
SDL2.dll libtcod.dll libtcod-gui.dll.
The safest way to execute Python, if you this is all new to you, is explicitly within the directory the
firstrl.py file is located.
- The current directory is that of the tutorial code and libtcod dependencies, in my case
C:\Users\rmtew\Documents\xxx\project. I know that Python when executed, should be able to find these files.
- The full path of the Python executable
c:\Python27\python.exeis given, so that I know that Python 2.7 32-bit is executed.
