Slay won't load : SDL mixer library could not initialize

Post by abigail_m » Thu Jan 17, 2019 6:55 am

I have Slay for Steam and it won't load, showing the message "The SDL mixer library could not initialize"

I have tried rebooting my computer but no luck. I'm using Win10.

Any help?

I'm not sure why that happened, but when I just the other day submitted Slay to the Windows Store they rejected it with the same error, despite it working fine on my Windows 10 laptop. So, I altered the parameters I ask from the SDL mixer library and Microsoft has now accepted it onto the Store so I'm guessing that fixes the problem.

I've updated the app and it now has a custom map creator (just waiting on being sent some final graphics) and i'll upload this new version to Steam and the Windows Store and as this new version will have the new SDL mixer parameters hopefully that will fix the problem!
