Can't use Debug Visualization as per Documentation

Postby qugengames » December 12th, 2018, 6:14 am

On https://playerio.com/documentation/services/multiplayer/developmentserver documentation states you can use System.Drawing for viusual debugging as follows:
Code: Select all
public class MyGame : Game<BasePlayer> {
    public override void GameStarted() {
        // Update the debug view once a second.
        AddTimer(delegate{
            RefreshDebugView();
        }, 1000);
    }

    public override Image GenerateDebugImage() {
        var debugImage = new Bitmap(400, 375);
        using(var g = Graphics.FromImage(debugImage)) {
            // draw the background
            g.DrawImage(EmbeddedResource.GetImage("tictactoe-bg.png"), 0, 0);

            // draw the game state
            var circle = EmbeddedResource.GetImage("circle.png");
            var cross = EmbeddedResource.GetImage("cross.png");
            g.DrawImage(circle, 35,45);
            g.DrawImage(cross, 260,260);
            g.DrawImage(circle, 260,45);
            g.DrawImage(cross, 153,45);
            g.DrawImage(circle, 153,153);
        }
        return debugImage;
    }
}


But if you add System.Drawing reference to the game code you get the Static Variable denial on PlayerIO.
So how are we supposed to visual debug?

How are you referring to your game code that it is throwing an error? It seems to work fine for me, are you trying to use a static variable somewhere? What is the exact line you are using that is getting denied?

Hi,
You can't create an embedded resource to include an image as it creates static variables
