Chittering Clawbug Vox Posted September 5, 2013 Share Posted September 5, 2013 I've been creating a lot of graphics lately, testing them out and using most for my new scenario. Unfortunately i've come across a bizarre bug. I'm certain it's a bug because I spent a rather long (too long) amount of time trying to solve it. Whenever you press the 'look at' button (Or 'L' key), a letter will appear on every type of this one terrain. Sometimes multiple types of terrain. It only happens to THAT type of terrain. I tried to solve this, thinking "Hmm, I must of used import incorrectly" so I tried a different import. After that failed, I proceeded with the next obvious maneuver - I added te_can_look_at = -1; to the defined terrain. This also didn't seem to work. At this point I felt rather frustrated, and continued to feel this way for the next three hours. I began to try some of my debugging tricks, such as changing the terrain number, see if that works. (nope) Then I delete every property and made it as simple as: begindefineterrain 412; clear; te_which_sheet = 500; te_which_icon = 0; This also didn't work. I eventually got so frustrated I completed deleted the terrain type and recreated it, using a new sheet, a new icon, a new terrain number, and the only thing it had in common was that it was in the same data file. It still survived, I do not know how or why. Eventually after ripping the data file to shreds and completely rewriting it, it finally abated. But I have no idea why, it was as though it got sick of me. Now the problem has reappeared elsewhere on several other terrain types. It went and got it's friends and came back to haunt me some more. The problem still persists, it's like a horrible nightmare, it knows my thoughts! It wont let me kill it! Has anyone ever experienced this problem, if so, did you fix it? and how? Please tell me! it's driving me insane! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
