Testing any project will result in a black screen when testing to Mac target.
Everything seems to run (music and sounds play and scene changes) but nothing is visible on screen.
Tested build b9991 and b9995 on Mac Sierra (v. 10.12.6) same result.
Works fine on the older b9974.
Attaching logs of the same sample game attached here launched in debug mode, even if I believe there's nothing important.

Using this topic to track the compilation issues that have been going on the past few builds.

This particular bug wasn’t resolved in the duplicate topic above, so is this one still a live issue? Would like to subscribe so I’ll know when it’s fixed.

So apparently this is unrelated to the build server issues we were experiencing a while back. For those experiencing this issue, as a first step, could you upload your logs including the system properties file?

Could somebody send me a compiled game that results in a black screen?

I would, but I don’t have a subscription right now, and Flash etc. won’t export because I have .ogg files in the game. Will an empty game do?

Does flash also result in a black screen? I thought this was the mac/cppia exports only.

Yeah, a blank game might be fine.

Ah, sorry, I think I got the terminology mixed up. I was thinking of all the different publish options, but that‘s different from export then? Are exported games the ones in the games-generated folder?

Yeah, from the games-generated folder is fine. Publishing or testing, either way it compiles a game.

I made a new project with some random resources: https://www.dropbox.com/s/b3a9q4jg8w0lyef/test_comp.zip?dl=0

I updated to Mojave today and got a black screen on the first game I tested. If this is the same issue, it should be easier to fix since it's happening on my end now.

Turns out to be a Mojave quirk. See the last paragraph of this StackOverflow answer before the edit.

Try dragging the window. Does the game show? It worked for me. Hopefully we can figure out how to make the game show right away.

Just tested the game Kottis uploaded, as well. Same thing. Black screen but the game showed up when I dragged the window.

Can confirm! Dragging the window seems to work on my end as well.
