Defold Sample project builds don't work with bob

I just downloaded the Defold Sample project “Alien World” on GitHub.

Since Defold doesn’t support my graphics card, I used bob.jar because it seemed to work

Upon building and bundling, It errors out with

Error - 8 Icon(s) not replaced in C:\users\whmsft\downloads\alienworld\build\default\Alien World\AlienWorld.exe with C:\users\whmsft\downloads\alienworld\

To Reproduce

java -jar bob.jar
java -jar bob.jar build --archive
java -jar bob.jar bundle

Expected behavior
I expected Things to work

Bob version:

  • Version 1.4.4 BETA


  • Platforms: Windows
  • OS: Windows 7 Basic
  • Device: Lenovo G460

For reference, this project: defold-examples/alien-world at master · defold/defold-examples · GitHub

Are you sure it doesn’t complete the build? I’m testing (on macOS) and bundle for win32 and I get the following output:

(master) [√] ~/projects/defold-examples/alien-world > java -jar bob.jar --platform=x86_64-win32 bundle         
Working...Reading classes... 1% ...done!
Bundling...Error - 8 icon(s) not replaced in /Users/bjornritzl/projects/defold-examples/alien-world/build/default/Alien World/AlienWorld.exe using /Users/bjornritzl/projects/defold-examples/alien-world
 2% ...done!
 100% ...done!

And in build/default/Alien World I have:

If you look at the source code for Windows icons it only outputs the text but doesn’t stop the build:

We should change this message to not confuse anyone looking at the build.

The build is completed but the Output executable just crashes upon running…
**maybe you could send your build as a “zip” for me to try and check if it worked for you (LOL)
