Bug 1 - Resizing the window breaks text rendering, all labels stop rendering. Editing the code so it reloads does not make the text appear again.

I wondered if packaged games have the same problem which led met to bug 2:

After adding metadata and an icon, I have packaged the tech demo using `./dragonruby-publish --only-package samples/tech_demo`.

Starting the .exe gives an error "Couldn't create game context:" with empty space after the `:`

Bug 3 - No sound plays in the golf_with_musical_notes sample.

This is usually the world's worst error message for "couldn't load font.ttf" ... we'll package that better. For now, just copy it into the tech_demo directory. You'll probably need dragonruby.png copied in there too (which, for 16 kilobytes, we should probably also unconditionally package just in case).


I'll check the bugs and report back!

That helps the packaged version run, thanks. The packaged build exhibits the same text disappearing bug when resizing.

The build we just pushed fixes all of this (including making sure font.ttf is packaged so you don't have to copy it into your game).
