Getting errors on neko target


#1

So I had to reinstall everything on my computer after a seriously bad crash on my HDD. Luckily all my work was backed up on external drives. But now after installing the latest libs I am getting these errors on my project when I try to build for neko or html5 targets:

Uncaught exception - Profile must be of type ‘String’ or ‘Array’

“Uncaught exception - Profile must be of type ‘String’ or ‘Array’”

I may be off target here, but what sort of textures are you using?


#3

Here is a snippet:

var backgrounds0Texture:Texture = Texture.fromBitmapData(Assets.getBitmapData("assets/backgrounds-0.png"), false);
            var backgrounds0lasXml:Xml = Xml.parse(Assets.getText("assets/backgrounds-0.xml")).firstElement();

            Game.assets.addTexture("backgrounds0", backgrounds0Texture);
            Game.assets.addTextureAtlas("backgrounds0", new TextureAtlas(backgrounds0Texture, backgrounds0lasXml));

#4

Ok. If I recall, I had a similar error when using ATF textures, is all. Looks like you’re using PNG’s though, which was how I resolved my issue.


#5

Yes all the image assets are PNGs


#6

The project was working fine before, trouble is I don’t remember what version of Haxe and OpenFL I was using before my HDD crash. Otherwise I would have gone back to that. Seems all this is related library compatibility issues. I did upgrade all my libs to the latest versions. I could be I am using deprecated code somewhere but not sure at this point where to look.


#7

Perhaps have a look where you’ve initialized the Starling instance. Try setting your profile to Auto, if it’s not already.

var starling:Starling = new Starling(ViewRoot, this.stage, null, null, "auto", "auto");

Replace “ViewRoot” with your Starling entry class.

The error is being thrown from here, and relates to the Context3D Profile:


#9

YES! That was it! Thanks!

Great news Frank :smiley:
