Blenderplayer not working

When I try to load my game into Blenderplayer it crashes. In the console I get:

Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: can’t initialize sys standard streams
ImportError: No module named encodings.utf_8

I am running Blender 2.56 32-bit on Windows 7.

If anyone knows the solution I would be very happy to hear it.


just copy paste the ‘lib’ folder and everything in it to same directory as tat of the exe and it will work.

Thank-you. You have solved my problem.

no problem.:smiley:

Um…actually, things didn’t work as smoothly as I had hoped.

While Blednerplayer now runs my game, it will not import a python module that is in the site packages folder. When I run the game inside of Blender it works, but when I run the game through Blenderplayer it does not. I even double checked to make sure that the files were copied. I’m not sure why Python can’t find the module.
