Help! (please)

Hi all, I’m in a bit of a pickle.

I’m doing a game design course and as part of it, I am required to design a city using this engine. The only problem is after I download it, I can get the edit menu up on my screen (Insert), but I cannot get it to clear the map of any blocked routes, or clear the pallet to start fresh. I have done all I think I can to clear the blocked paths by changing the grid arrows from red to green, but that still does not work. At first I thought I was missing some parts of the software, but I have downloaded it three times now and it doesn’t seem to be that. Apparently there is another, larger edit menu by pressing the F1 key, but that doesn’t appear to be there either.

The tutorial is all well and good, and I am told by an NPC that I will be able to gain access to all kinds of features and map editing and the same NPC ‘will set that up’ for me. Of course, he lied and I am now just walking around doing nothing in the tutorial level. I cannot clear anything out apart from the ground and masking layers. Nothing else works.

What am I doing wrong here?!

Please can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Welcome to the forum!

You actually clicked the “Block” button, you need the “Attribute button”. Just right click to clear the attributes, if you click the “Events” buttons you need to clear those as well (they appear as black squares) if you want to remove Events (if you’re using 3.0)

!

I also recommend reading this tutorial, if you’re new to the Event System.

Wow, game designing courses are actually suggesting EO. lolwtf

As for the maps you can either do what Agora told or just delete all map data in the servers data files

Hey! Thank you both so much. I will let you know how this goes!!

If you’re trying to clear a whole map, just delete the map file.

Otherwise, everyone else has covered it. :)

Now I’m getting a message on the game screen that says:

Run-tme error ‘5’:

Invalid procedure call or argument

Now the game won’t even start up beyond this message. I have reinstalled the program again, and even began a new account. This has done nothing but show the same message. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Your problem can’t be pinpointed. But try the following, go to client side \data files\config.ini

Find the debug = 0 line, and change the number to 1. If it is 1 don’t do anything and goto the logs folder and delete it. Then rerun the client and when it errors a msg should be added to data files\log\log.txt. Open up the log file and paste its contents.

You legend! ou fixed it! Thank you so much!

I can’t get this to work. When one problem sorts out, another comes along, my server keeps telling me that the addess is in use and does not lt me open the engine now. The debug mode set to 1 helped a lot, but I cannot even edit anything. Is there any way to get straight on to a blank map without having to go through the tutorials?

Thanks

If you’re running the server on your computer, check your taskbar if you have the server running (as you may only have 1 running). If you don’t see it Hit Ctrl + Alt + Delete and close out the Server.exe process or you can simply restart your computer.

Go to your server (And client) folder, then data folder, then maps folder; simply delete all the maps/events if you want to start fresh without having to manually delete everything.

Okay, I’ve deleted all the maps and I am able to save the map size (100x100) but I can’t find a way to save the completed maps. When I go to a new map, it asks if I want to save them and (obviously) I pick ‘yes’. Then I go to edit my next map, then go back to my other map. The same message comes up if I want to save changes. Then when I go back to my old map, the map I created has disappeared again and is just a 100x100 black screen, then the program shuts down automatically. After I restart it (again) the map from the tutorial game appears on the far left squashed up into 5 or six columns.

Is this a hardware issue? Or am I still missing something?

Thanks,

I’m having a bit of trouble understanding, if you’re doing what I think you’re doing, try this;

  • Before switching maps, save your current map by clicking the save button (not when it prompts you)

  • Close the map editor and event editor after saving. As it sounds like you’re not closing them.

  • Then Switch Maps and test.

If it’s not saving because it’s giving a run-time error, that’s why it’s not saving it (it’s crashing, instead of exiting and saving). Please give the runtime error if that’s the case.

There was a runtime error ‘5’ before but that was the debug. I set that from ‘0’ to ‘1’ and now that seems fine. No runtime errors appear now, it only closes down and the server says ‘Connection from 127.0.0.1 has been terminated’. How exactly do I save the map? There doesn’t seem to be an option apart from when it prompts me when I change maps.

When you change debug from 0 to 1, the error is handled that is the Box showing the error doesn’t appear. Go to the client data files logs folder. Within the folder there will be a logs.txt. Posts its content here or upload it.

Another thing that has gone on is the music seems to have stopped working on there too, which isn’t really an issue. Is it possible to import my own sounds and music at all?

Thanks for taking the time to help me again

It is seems to be an RTE 5. It would be impossible to pinpoint the exact line of code without debugging from the IDE.

if you have VB6 then follow the instructions

  1. Remove the Clients debugging options (the opposite of what was mentioned above by me)

  2. run the client from the IDE. (Open up the client.vbp file and Press ctrl + F5)

  3. Do what you did to cause the error.

  4. A box appears. Click on the Debug button within the box

  5. The box disappears and a yellow line is shown

  6. Copy paste the yellow line here.

I don’t have VB6 I’m afraid. I just tried looking for it but all I can find are a bunch of rar. or zip. files (about 20) and they do nothing. I do have a file reader program and I accessed the vbp. with it and it presented this:

Does this help pinpoint it at all?

I got this from the vbw. file also (if it means anything).

frmEditor_Events = 46, 46, 980, 395, , 23, 23, 957, 372, C

Changing the debug back to 0 has made the RTE5 come back now too so I can’t even open the game now.

Thanks

Please install VB6, because that is the only way we can help now.

Have you checked that do you have those sounds in your sounds folder?

Yes, those sounds are in the folder. I am looking to insatll VB6 now too. I just hope that this can be sorted out as this is the only thing holding me back from my TIGA Diploma (bummer).

Thanks,

YstuK
