I am using DSFML
module game;

import core.time;

import std.stdio: writeln;

import dsfml.graphics;

import dsfgui.button;

import apple;
import snake;

class Game
{
private:
    enum State { menu, playing }
    State state;
    Font font;
    Button playBtn;
    Snake snake;
    Apple apple;
    RenderWindow win;
    int size;
protected:
    this(){}
public:
    void init()
    {
        import std.exception : enforce;

        size = 10;

        auto win = new RenderWindow( VideoMode( 600, 600 ), "snake" );

        font = new Font;
        enforce( font.loadFromFile( "media/arial.ttf" ), "failed to load font arial" );

        playBtn = new Button( "play", font );
        playBtn.position = Vector2f( 300, 300 );

        snake = new Snake( size, 3, Vector2f( win.size.x, win.size.y ) );
        apple = new Apple( size / 2, Vector2f( win.size.x, win.size.y ) );
    }
    void run()
    {
        auto clock = new Clock;
        writeln( win is null );
        while( win.isOpen() )
        {
            writeln("lol" );
        }
    }
}

the problem here is, during init(), the writeln will output false, which means yes win is initialized, however during run(), suddenly win is null becomes true...

and here is my main()
void main( string[] args )
{
    myGame.init();
    myGame.run();
}

P.S I tested this with int* and it don't become null when function ends

oh, and I forgot, I had

Game myGame;
static this()
{
    myGame = new Game;
}

below the Game class

The `win` you're creating in `init` is a function-local variable. It ceases to exist when `init` returns. It's not `this.win`.

In `run`, you're accessing `this.win`. It's still null because you never assigned anything there.

So change `auto win = ...;` to `this.win = ...;` or simply `win = ...;`.
