#2928 closed defect (invalid)

WIN32: Console output missing

Reported by: SF/doc_wagon Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Port: Win32
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


ScummVM doesn't output anything to stdout/stderr anymore for Win32 when launched from a console window. And when launched from Explorer, it doesn't open the console window as it used to do.

So it's impossible to do for example "scummvm.exe --help"

(stdout.txt and stderr.txt also don't exist)

Using CVS from today (25.11.2006)

Ticket imported from: #1602737. Ticket imported from: bugs/2928.

ScummVM stopped using CVS long ago, try checking out current source code via SVN.

Sounds like you are compling you own build, make sure the console output isn't disabled by '-mwindows' option of linker. It is usually added the the default SDL library settings of sdl-config.

Actually I meant SVN, not CVS (sorry for the confusion). I've built using the MSVC8 project files from SVN. Anyway, I fixed it now, the project files default to /Subsystem:Windows instead of /Subsystem:Console

Yes, it's been a while since I last compiled something with MSVC, I should have noticed earlier.

Thanks anyway
