Problem Description
After installing the Scirra Greenworks plugin, the game runs as a black screen window. More notes: steam_api.dll is in packages.nw, steam game build points to nw.exe, and there is a steam_appid.txt with the app id. This is a node webkit build.

Attach a Capx ... sp=sharing

Description of Capx
Note: The CapX doesn't seem to matter, I've trimmed it down to a simple green box.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  • Install greenworks plugin.
  • Export Node Webkit build.
  • Create steam_appid.txt and put steam_api.dll in package.nw.
  • Run game from steam (or not) and user will see a black window.

Observed Result
Run game from steam (or not) and user will see a black window.

Expected Result
The game runs.

The Greenworks plugin is still experimental. I'm going to take another look at it soon, but since it's not an official feature yet we won't accept bug reports for it here for the time being.
