I'm writing a game in javascript, and I had the world generator running fine, but when I created a startup function to run multiple things at once, my code doesn't run at all anymore. Can anyone see my problem?


<title>Project Rust</title>

<!-- <link href="/YOUR_PATH/favicon.ico" rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" /> -->

<script src="Scripts/startup.js"></script>

<script src="Scripts/drawmap.js"></script>

<script src="Scripts/maps.js"></script>

<script src="Scripts/mapread.js"></script>

<script src="Scripts/mainchar.js"></script>


<body bgcolor="#BFE3FF" onload="startup()">


startup.js: startup(){ alert("start"); drawmap(Screen[0]); mainchar(); }

Any help will be appreciated.

    Hi Pravesh,

    You should set the type to the script tags:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/startup.js"></script>

    Also, you need to use the function keyword to define a function in javascript:

    function startup(){





    If it's still now working, open your browser's javascript console and you should see the error.

    Hope this will solve your problem.
