Homegirl finally works! 🤞
After almost a week of debugging and polishing, I think I've finally gotten Homegirl to work for as many people as possible.. :)
First challenge was to make installation as painless as possible for Linux and Mac users, so I made a script that installs all the dependencies that Homegirl needs to work.. If you install via the Itch.io app, all that will be taken care of automagically.. :) (if you download it from the website, just run `homegirl.sh`)
Second and most frustrating challenge was to figure out why Homegirl wouldn't run on a clean installation of Windows 10.. After a lot of trial and error of testing on multiple machines and figuring out why it worked on _some_ machines and not others.. I finally figured out which DLL file it was missing (it was `vcomp140.dll`) and added it to the bundle.. and now it works! 🎉
So generally it should now work on all 64 bit machines running Windows 10, MacOS or Linux.. :) If you run some distribution of Linux that isn't supported by the installation script, you're welcome to try and modify it and send me a pull request on Github..
