Fixed missing dlls in windows releases


Laigter 1.5 was missing some dlls for windows. Now it's fixed! so if you had troubles yesterday with the 1.5 version, please re-download it!

The cause of this problem is that my old PC is working really bad, so i borrowed a pc which had those dlls in system path. That's why when i tested, Laigter run normally, and i forgot to include them on the packages.

I'm trying to get a new laptop for this (and other similar) reasons, so, if you like Laigter and find it useful, please consider supporting me on Patreon, Kofi, or PayPal!

Glad to see this still in development. 

I believe there is an issue with loading PNG files. When I try to load them (either through drag and drop or by the open button) Laigter will show the texture is loaded, but nothing appears in the preview window. 

Here is an attachment of the window (right side only with relevant info):

Basically, any image (with transparency) does not show up in Laigter even though the Textures window indicates otherwise.


NOTE: This was a bug in 1.4 also, but I couldn't find the time to report it back then.

hi! Thanks for reporting that

This could be caused by the glsl supported version of your system. Could you please confirm what version of glsl is supported by your Pc? Also, could you please tell me your Pc full specs? And if your are on Windows, have you tried executing it with s parameter as I said in the post?

Thank you for the reply!

glsls version is 3.1, 

I saw your post and tried executing the program with the "s" parameter and it indeed works correctly by doing so (the pixel options + export of preview work flawlessly btw).

A minor issue I found was that images of a certain attribute will not load. More than likely the size dimensions must be within a certain range. Images whose dimensions are larger than the program can handle (I experimented with a 1004 px width x 417 px height image) will not load. Not sure if there is a manual for this program, and if this is mentioned in there. But in case it isn't, this is just for your info (in case you didn't know already).

Lastly, I have attached a full report  of my pc's specs below (apologies if its too long, but I didn't see an option to attach a file, so I only put the items I think are important):

Great stuff you have thus far!

hi! Thanks for the feedback!

Could you handle me some of the images that doesn't work? I've tried with images as big as 2048x2048 and worked in my pc. Have you tried in another machine to confirm it happens to you in other systems?

There is no manual yet, as i have really little free time, but surely there will be.

I'll try to look further into this,but i need to be able to reproduce this behaviour first

(1 edit)

I haven't tested it in another system. I'll try to see if I can. 

In the meantime, here is the image attached. When I try to load it, Laigter crashes.

Edit: double-checked to see if downloading a copy of the image would work, but it didn't. Hopefully the behavior will be reproduced on your end.


Works in linux pc:

Later i will try on windows... unnfortunately i only have access to win10 pc.. lets see if i can get anyone else to try..

Also, note that black sprites won't be affected by light, as black bodies absorbs all light...


I know i previously had no intention of profit with Laigter, and that didn't change, but the situation is a bit critical now for me. Sorry if you find my asking for support odd...
