More Freaky Crashing Problems

Okay, the problem still lies in combat...this time when the enemy NPC is dead and has run all his events (dying, etc.) the game freezes. Any suggestions?

Mr. Diordna,

What events are you running within the NPC death event? There are some known issues with NPC death event that we are awaiting fixes on, such as replacing the NPC's graphic.

Sort of an aside... Is there a list anywhere of "known issues." I have reinvented the wheel a couple of times and wasted quite a bit of effort on such "issues". I always assume I'm screwing up and try all sorts of things before I go to the boards to do a search and/or pester people with questions.

I don't run any events when the NPC dies. The game just freezes.

But I don't have the source in front of me, so I could be wrong.

Mr. Diordna,

Then you could you please explain your statement: this time when the enemy NPC is dead and has run all his events (dying, etc.)

What do you mean by when the NPC has run all his events after he dies if you aren't running any events when he dies? I'm confused now... 🙂

Okay, so far this has happened with all NPCs I have created (which would be 2.) It might have to do with the fact that I made my own weapons-they shoot a Nerf dart from you to the enemy, or vice versa. The weapon works fine in my own hands. For the first NPC, I made a new map, stuck him on there, and fought him. Or at least I tried. The game froze before he even got on my screen. I did the same thing with the other NPC; this time I killed him and THEN the game froze.

Neither NPC has any events attached to it. The weapon has no events attached to it.

------------------

People, this is kind of important. Development has come to a halt because of this problem. Any suggestions? I'm using the Future tile set for most things. I use the cave set on one level.

------------------

Sorry, all I can say is check the events. I had a similar problem, then checked the events, fixed one, and it worked.

But there are no events. I checked like 5 times. clicked the X button on each one.

Mr. Diordna,

Let's practice some troubleshooting techniques to narrow down the problem.

First, load the NPC up with no weapons and kill him. Does the game still freeze or crash? If it doesn't then we probably have a problem with the weapon you created. Look it over. If the weapon is the problem I suspect it has something to do with the picture you use for its firing, or perhaps a weapon event.

If it does crash then we have another problem. Do you have any other NPCs? If so, load one of them up and kill it. If the game doesn't crash then you probably have a problem with the NPC. Look it over.

Post back with your findings and we'll see what we can do. But unfortunately, without seeing your source it is difficult to troubleshoot; we can only speculate. So please be precise with your findings as this will help us to understand what you have done and guess at the problems.

Thanks.
