Can you post the image you're using? It sounds like there's a problem with how you locate the frames of your sprite sheet.
If you make it a 48x16 strip with each frame being 16x16, it should work. Like so:
Or, if you make the image 32x32 like this it should work too
where frame 3 is a blank area.
If you have a blank area in your image it will show nothing for that frame of the animation and blink.
So, in this case frame 2 is a blank area and will show nothing when animation frame 2 is drawn.
I had the same problem. My solution was to install Visual Studio 2017 at the default location. C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio
As far as I understand it with Version 2017 Microsoft removed the PATH Variable that points to the location of Visual Studio. There was a fix to HXCPP but I think this needs Visual Studio to be installed at the default location https://github.com/HaxeFoundation/hxcpp/commit/e5e5c21dc128e66093cfa1b9c26ebc6f54ad1d10
Okay. I think it's time to call it. The same thing happens with each suggestion I try. So I dunno what the problem is. I'll probably come back to this project again eventually, but I think I'm done being frustrated for a while.
Thanks for all your help @galoyo, I appreciate it!
you can scroll text or display anything you want in the region. if I remember correctly, the scrollbars will be hidden unless there is something else to show. you can have the window any size and display objects anywhere on the screen.
(First of all, as a side note: I'm an idiot that didn't realize the "my sound playing one time" was actually the bleep the debugger makes when it throws up an error...woops.)
I looked at your README, @galoyo, and that actually completely solved my problem. I hadn't found mention about setting the asset paths in the Project.xml until now and yours was quite enlightening, and actually makes sense why my sound wasn't playing and the error it was throwing in the debugger!
To be more explicit for the sake of including everything here for posterity, I had to define my sounds in Project.xml like so:
I used this method from the comments of the chosen answer on that thread.

But you can also do this I reckon.
You don't need to re-download the installer for Visual Studio: just go to Add or remove programs -> Visual studio community 2015 -> modify. From there, I clicked languages, Visual C++. Added cl.exe! – user2831602
