So I started making this Java game and everything worked fine, except when I tried to export it as a runnable jar. It shows me a blank screen when I try to execute it. I found out that it has to do with the way I'm accessing the images so I tried to change the code according to what i read on here but it's still not working :[
I'm currently accessing the images through:
image = ImageIO.read(getClass().getResource("/imageName"));
In order to include your resources inside your exported jar, they need to reside within the
src folder (otherwise, it'll look for them in the current directory where the jar is run which is susceptible to change and would need to be supplied separately, which doesn't sound like what you want).
Meaning something like:
- src + com.liakos.SpaceShooter - res - 1.png - 2.png
And so on.
Then you can access it through the
getResource API, i.e.:
Image image; image = ImageIO.read(getClass().getResource("res/1.png"));
