NPC's Do Nothing! (Need VB6 Help!)

I was making my game in eclipsevb 2.2.0 and whenever i kill an enemy they do their drops and stuff but they dont attack or respawn! And every once in a while I get runtime error 9…please help!

There was a problem with the map’s not respawning (except map 1) but that is fixed in the newer version.

As for attacking, they probably won’t attack you if you are an admin.

For the RTE 9, when do you get the error? what are you doing when it happens.

Where is this newer version and i dont get rte 9 anymore ;)

double post

Nooooo! I still get the error even with vb 2.2.1 :(

I dont know then it worked for me

I tried everything and I know that the npc is causing the runtime error but i dont know what im doing wrong :(

Do you have VB6? If you do, locate what line of code is causing the RTE please.

No I don’t want to pay for VB6 :( know where there is a free version?

Sorry for double post but I got VB6 now what do I do? Please explain very detailed because I have no idea how to use this software…… :D

If you don’t know how to use VB6 , then hire a programmer…

run the game using vb6 , "You can see a (Play) button , a arrow that was pointing > " then play it , if an error appear press Debug , then tell us the line of the error.

Do you know how i acctually open it like what code I write? I googled it but found nothing :(

DAAAHHH … Even when i was a newbie i already know how to start it on vb6 without anyone help …

Just open the vbp file on server/client side , then press the arrow pointing on the right , then play the game , and if there’s an error press “Debug”

got that?

I know this is probalbly hell for you but exactly how do I “Open the vbp file on server/client side?”

Double click on it ?

I meant how do I open it in VB6……


That made my day

Install VB6

Find the .vbp files. Double click on it. It will automatically open as long as you have not set any other application as the default app for opening such types of files.

Okay I found some .vbp files in the template,projects folder but what now do i have to make a file?

PS:I have a free version of it.

Edit:Nevermind so I opened the server.vbp file with VB6 and then ran it. It says

Runtime error 429

Then I clicked debug and it showed this,
