today is my first day using Corona, well coding in general. I have decided to get into game coding as a hobby. after a week or so doing research I choose Corona as my starting point. Today i downloaded the SDK and attempted to start working, however I immediately ran into an issue. I attempted to write the line of code that i will list below in sublime 3 and notepad++
local background = display.newImage("bg.png");
This was my attempt at loading a simple background that i had created in paint and saved into the project folder. when I ran the simulator the display remained black. I turn to you guys after hours of trying different codes. i have attempted everything from display.newText to display.newRect all failing to have the simulator load an object. I am running this on an old windows 7 laptop and will be be testing it on a different pc asap. Also I have confirmed that the simulator is working, as i am able to get print commands to function. If there is any feedback that you can provide please do!
