In Brazil, we use to call it a BIOS problem (BIOS = "Bicho Idiota Operando o Sistema" , which translate in english as "Stupid animal operating the system"

Hello.

I catched this from my game log.

Code: Select all

23:09:09.749 [script.javaScript.exception.notFunction]: ***** JavaScript exception (vector_news 1.7): TypeError: this.startMusicSet is not a function
23:09:09.749 [script.javaScript.exception.notFunction]:       /home/spara/.Oolite/AddOns/Vector1.7.oxp/Scripts/vector_news.js, line 85.

Thanks for the report, spara.

Which Oolite version and the versions of Vector, Cabal_Common_Library and Snoopers are you using?

Just an idea, please send your savedgame via pm.

Game: 1.76.1
Vector: 1.7
Cabal: 1.6
Snoopers: 2.3.3

For the savegame, I was testing new stuff and started the game using adderstart-savegame from Switeck's Shipping oxp.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info - I can't reproduce it though.

The posted error looks as if there's a scope problem, but startMusicSet is a function of the same script (vector_news.js). Latest.log may contain more hints, so please post it or send it via pm.

:( Seems that I can't reproduce it either. And sorry, I did not take a copy of the log last night. I know I should have :roll:. I'll keep an eye on the log if it appears again. That Vector is a fine looking ship by the way.

Thanks, spara. I'll keep an eye too (and try a few more things).

Thanks a lot for sending it .-)

It was a lot easier to find the error in the script. A new version will come soon - I only need to run a few more tests.

Vector1.7.1 is online.

Changes:
- Fix for background mission pushing a wrong newsflash
- Various fixes and tweaks (e.g. http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f= ... 4&start=28)

Thanks to Eric Walch, marcusrg and Cpt.

I noticed a couple of things in this oxp.

1. Wiki page says:
Please note: It is not advised to use this OXP with Oolite v1.77.
Is this so?

2. in shipdata there are definitions like this:

Code: Select all

		like_ship = "cobra3-pirate";
		model = "cobra3_redux.dat";
These clash with any replace shipset that uses it's own models.

Yes, it's written in v1.76.x. Behaviours (and other things) have changed in v1.77 so I consider it broken until it's updated. It will 'work', but this is not enough for me, so I've added this note. There's another showstopper - if I can't control my own settings and code runtimes anymore (OXPs are uncalled changing accuracy, energy, equipment, etc... or inject code) or entities are simply removed by other OXPs my motivation is nearly not existing anymore. We need solutions, otherwise it gets more and more pointless to write any mission related stuff.

Yep. It was written quite some time ago when 'replacements' have used different entity names. I'll change it. But CCL needs to be finished before I can even think about releasing anything.
