Always initialize SDL before Qt #401

merged 1 commit into from Jul 2, 2019

commented Jun 23, 2019

Some background:

  1. Qt is only used for the scripting engine (and the script debugger window)
  2. There are reports that initializing SDL before Qt fixes crashes on certain Linux configs (depending on the version of SDL and the version of Qt)
  3. SDL must be initialized before Qt on macOS (otherwise there are issues with menus, etc)
  4. It is undesirable to rely on side effects that occur when Qt is initialized first (ex. Windows DPI awareness settings)

@past-due past-due changed the title [WIP] Always initialize SDL before Qt Always initialize SDL before Qt Jun 27, 2019

@past-due past-due added this to the 3.3.0_beta2 milestone Jun 27, 2019
