Hey all!

I'm using Version 0.4 and the editor keeps freezing whenever I'm trying to edit a monster's individual stats (not group!). I've tried deleting and re-installing the editor already to no avail (along with running it as an admin, changing compatibility settings, etc.)

Also, error messages like these keep popping up whenever I try to edit my party member's stats

ERROR in
action number 4
of End Step Event
for object obj_eParty:

Error in code at line 6:
   level=f_level.value
                 ^
at position 16: Unknown variable value

It seems as if some variables in the program aren't being declared or initialized correctly, but I don't know how to fix it. I'm running on Windows 10. And yes, I have GSdatahandler.dll, language.ini, and scripting.ini in my root folder with the actual editor itself.

Thanks guys!

Huh! Silly question but have you tried restarting your computer?

Oh yeah baby, £ me harder.

Fusion is just a cheap tactic to make weak Adepts stronger.

Yeah, I've restarted my computer a few times already. The editor used to work fine a few months ago (still using Windows 10 at that time) but IDK why it refuses to work for me now.

My ROM file isn't corrupted because I can load it up just fine on VBA (Golden Sun and TLA both work perfectly fine).

The most confusing errors are the ones that we don't know how to reproduce. And this seems like it might be one of them...

Umm.... Do older versions of the editor work? (0.2, 0.3, etc?)


P.S. = While I strongly doubt it, it'd be really funny if an anti-virus could cause similar errors. :P


http://gamedesign.wikidot.com/gamemaker:unknown-variable = Hmm... interesting. But probably does not have the answer? ....

Did you know? In English, you are suppose to capitalize the languages. (e.g. English is a proper noun.) Subjects like math, science, history can be left lower-cased unless they are a title. (Kind of like how you can say either "my mom" or "Mom" in "I went with (X) to the store.", except that I don't think languages are ever lower-cased in English.) In Spanish, both subjects and languages are left lower-cased. (I put this here because I've noticed people make this mistake quite often. And am curious if they know about this, and whether they use their way because they believe this grammar usage should have never been a thing?

I've tried using the older versions too; one of the versions (don't remember which one b/c I deleted it already) immediately CTD when I load up a Golden Sun rom. The other older versions have the same exact problems I'm experiencing with Version 0.4.

Oddly enough, the April fools hex editor works just fine although I have no idea how to use it lol. I didn't even think about the anti-virus thing though (Thanks for pointing that out!), I'll go check it out and post an update later on today.

If it wasn't the anti-virus (What anti-virus do you have, anyway?), another option you could look into is to see if you can install the game maker program (That the editor was made in) if you haven't, maybe it has some other things that get installed that make things work... But I've no idea? (It's doubtful, but it's always worth looking into every possibility.) -- (Not sure if it's like... something requiring an older version of something(?) where a newer version doesn't work?)

Also... I forgot to mention the newest version of Atrius's Editor was in the News & Announcements forum. 0.5 ... and is open-sourced. - (It is not the latest modified version since people like me may have modified it some in the past, but it is the latest official version by Atrius. ; For a while now, I do not have any current plans to work on Atrius's version since I wanted to work on my own version using C# for right now. :P  Not big on Game Maker, but it is good for micro-games and stuff, if anyone ever wants to make them.  Basically the length of games you may find on addictinggames, armorgames, etc.)

Now I'm really confused - I allowed the app through windows firewall, and now I'm getting this error message upon startup (and the program hangs so I have to kill it via task manager)


___________________________________________
ERROR in
action number 1
of Trigger Event: Trigger0
for object obj_stresstest:

Error defining an external function.

I removed it from the app list, but it's still giving me this error. I'm going to delete V0.4 from my computer and take a look at V0.5. to see if it'll work for me. I'll look into downloading game maker and see if that'll fix anything or not.

EDIT - just installed version 0.5. the "error defining an external function" message doesn't pop up anymore, but i'm essentially back to square one since i'm still having trouble editing the enemy data.

Now that's an error I recognize!

Which turns out to also be one I'm not sure how to replicate.

I think it usually has to do with not being able to access gsdatahandler.dll or whatever. (Can't say.) -  And I think this might be an error where sometimes a restart helps. (Unless I'm mistaken, and even then it is not a guarantee(?).)

Wednesday has been a really hectic day for me (not in a good way!), so I haven't had time to try out the game maker thing.

Funny enough, I didn't even bother trying to run the editor on another computer. I'll do both later on today and re-update.

Well what do you know - I installed the editor on my laptop yesterday (also runs on Windows 10) and, lo and behold, it works fine!

I'm still not sure what the bug is, but I'm glad I'm able to get the thing up and running now.

That's nice to hear! It brings you one step closer to the solution.

Might I ask if it works when you log in through a different user?


Just in case anything in say...
C:\Users\Tea\AppData\ (aka: Windows key + R (Run) :  %appdata%)
and similar...
could have any effect.

Majora: Import old forum posts for reference, perhaps take posts containing important info like documentation away from the old stickied forum post model and make them into their own pages on a site with an in-built search bar. Might help with SEO, too. If nothing else, perhaps whipping them into PDFs and hosting them via Scribd? The possibilities are boundless when it comes to restructuring a site
December 09, 2017, 04:20:02 AM
Majora: Just a nice idea to have even if it doesn't come to fruition. Updating, modernizing, always a good idea. Could probably do something pretty nifty using a good Wordpress theme
December 09, 2017, 04:15:45 AM
Majora: Would be kind of neat to do something like that for GSHC. Could change it up a bit to show all tweets/instagram posts/facebook posts/golden sun subreddit posts all in one sidebar. It would be cool in that it gives the site it's on (and the topic in general) appear more lively and active, which is a plus
December 09, 2017, 04:14:19 AM
Majora: That does sound interesting. One cool thing I've seen some sites use is a sort of unique take on a sidebar option that acts like a social media integration (like, "See GSHC's latest Tweets"). It displays activity from a variety of related sites, such as Reddit, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
December 09, 2017, 12:58:53 AM
Fox: And the way it'd work via code is not that all users would instantly get nicknames the minute you register... but rather, the moment you view a name if it doesn't have a nickname, it gets one. (My Thoughts.)
December 09, 2017, 12:53:55 AM
Fox: (I was thinking that it would be "Name (Nickname)" ... The nickname is what you first known the user as, and you can change that yourself... and the Name is what the user wants to be called... Something like that.
December 09, 2017, 12:47:56 AM
Fox: So like... for starters, one idea I had was to make it so anyone can name anyone... much like how it works on Skype, and you (the namer) would be the only one to see it, and such...
December 09, 2017, 12:45:02 AM
Fox: Would need to be carefully thought out and tested, though.
December 09, 2017, 12:43:02 AM
Fox: I'm thinking I could make it so that name changes can happen whenever... (Without any limit)... Since I believe there's a way to do it with minimum confusion. (I think.) Hmm....
December 09, 2017, 12:31:36 AM
Fox: (I mean an offline version... at least initially.)
December 09, 2017, 12:25:01 AM
Fox: Now that I have thought about it a bit more, would I be right to assume that GSHC would be one of the most interesting websites to administrate, or no? It's sad to see not much going on with it. == I almost want to make a concept website at some point. :D Anyway, how is everyone doing today?
December 06, 2017, 12:12:59 AM
Fox: Like... Start using Github or something... Do like how many of those other projects such as Citra (WIP 3DS Emulator) does. Etc.
December 06, 2017, 12:08:12 AM
Fox: No idea. I just wish OpenGoldenSun would release it as unfinished, but oh well.
December 05, 2017, 06:52:09 AM
MaxiPower: Bummed out that the open golden sun project is dead it seems with no actitivy in close to a year at this point. Is there any hope left in any other projects?
November 27, 2017, 10:25:28 AM
Fox: (When I say research, mainly refering to the data in the game, though checking websites can count to a degree.)
November 27, 2017, 09:52:27 AM
Fox: Maybe. But Dark Dawn is meh, hahah... I still research it, though, because data can be interesting.
November 27, 2017, 05:28:36 AM
Portakin: I'm here! This game is underrated!
November 25, 2017, 08:03:23 PM
Fox: .... and the email listed in that post makes me think we should just make a new rules topic with most of the same information. (So the old ones can be sort o archived.)
November 25, 2017, 07:59:47 PM
Fox: "and in addition to the bot being banned, I will remove the advertisement and lock the thread."  ... From what I've seen in the last couple years, this should be changed to "delete the thread."
