Welcome to the forums Boricuarpgmaker :)

If you don't have any special things that you need to include (like video codec), then you just click on "create executable" (see image)

Usually you don't need to select any additional options, unless you want to include something special.
Just click on "Start EXE compilation" :)

I see. It's difficult for me to tell what file is missing though... Have you tested your game to make sure that everything is working well?

If you did, and can't figure out at all what is missing: how big is your project folder? If it's not too big, you can zip it up and send it to me by email attachment.

As I said you can add specific files like video codecs. But so far I have never added anything there, so that this is most probably not the cause for the error message.

Btw, did you set in the Project Properties which is the first screen to start with? (Project Properties -> General Tab -> Initial Frame)

conclusion

Postby Boricuarpgmaker » Tue Feb 17, 2009 9:19 pm

my conclusion is that a file of my program was deleted or something and its needed to make the exe file. maybe i can fix it reinstalling adventure maker. well, i hope you dont get mad with me cause im writting to much, mystery. thanks for answering my questions.

Okay, try to re-install Adventure Maker (make sure you backup your project folder!).
No problem, this is what this forum is for :)
And if it still doesn't work, you can still send me your project folder, so that I can check it. Just let me know if you send it to me so that I take a look at my emails ;)

i dont know why. when i click create exe a window appear asking where i want to save the exe file. then i click ok and appear this...see the picture below.


The reason u are seeing this picture below is because you are hitting "distribution Options"...You don't need to hit that you can simply just hit " Start EXE compliation..--The other button..:D

It's becuase you are hitting t he other one [Distribution options]..then when u say "ok" when done..
It says its missing the file..--mainly cause you put nothing in there..Your project , unless u know u added a special video to it..Do u even need to hit Distribution Options..

So in essence..Its the other button u want.~:D

Peace

You will have to debug the game...go through your frames....and make sure every file is in its place..

You should only have to Rightclick--Edit---If there is a file missing, it will tell u then..:)

Also try running the game...

Are u running Full Version of AM..?

You checked all of your frames..?

Did you download AM from the AdventureMaker's website...Or elsewhere..?

Have u made a game before..?..

If you have checked everything...You may have to reinstall Adventure Maker..

If the error persists, contact GM-Support with your registration details (the ones that were sent to your e-mail) to confirm that you have got the original full version of AM and he will help you...

chickens, I don't consider this necroposting, because
1st) it hasn't been years, but 10 days from the last post
2nd) it's not offtopic, the user does have a similar problem and it's nice of them to not open another thread with the same title
