Default Error during simulation. - 03-21-2007, 03:11 PM

Right now, I am working on a project for my programming class. We have to use events with functions to make somehting happen, if something else is true. Everything was going fine, but then when my dog gets near the bird, the error comes up. Here is the error:

Code:

right now, it is programmed to do this:

If the dog gets within 1 meter of the bird, the dog will jump up and the bird will move upward, then they each return to their original positions. If I take everythign out of the method that is called, and just leave in "dog say hi," then it works.

Hope you understand what I mean. if you need me to post my code or something, I can, just let me know.

Thanks!

It would be great if you could post a copy of your world for us to take a look at. Then we can determine if it's a bug with the software or with your code.

Default Help on Error During Simulation - 10-09-2008, 04:39 AM

Hi,

i just created an simple alice world with controls to move a bikerkid object with the a chase cam feature.

However, when i start to run the simulation and hold down "w" for a few seconds to move the the bikerkid forward and release "w" key, an error occurs saying "Error during simulation". (some ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException)

Error message as follow:

Btw the above error doesn't occur when i remove Biker Movement Method.

Biker Movement Method basically makes the biker legs paddle the bike when he moves (using a do together tag)

attached is the code

Question event error when using a method call inside a method - 12-08-2009, 05:28 PM

Yeah, I have been having the same issues and seems like there isn't a workaround, I have have spent alot of time and tried everything, starting to believe it's a BUG! I am not creating hardly any code in the attatched program, using objects with already created methods.
Error during simulation.

It is a bug, but there's also a workaround.

I went ahead and fixed it for you.

Default event error when using a method call inside a method - 07-07-2010, 12:58 AM

I'm also getting this error when I make a cowboy walk as I press the direction keys. If I take the walk method out the error goes away but the cowboy looks lame moving around all stiff. What is the work around you used? I'll attach the file for my world. Don't mind the horse that gallops for infinity and gets nowhere, that's just an animation/method test.

Out of the 7 schools I applied for, Carnegie Mellon is the only one that didn't accept me. They wait listed me, but I hold no grudges. Alice is awesome and Claytronics , om*g. Some one should figure out how to put these two projects together. It would revolutionize not only the gaming industry, but the world... scratch that, the Universe... scratch that, the Multiverse!

It has to do with events being terminated as they're happening. Instead of putting the movement right in the while key is pressed event, make a Boolean variables become true when you press, and false when you depress. Now, make a method on world start. Inside and infinite loop, put while the variable is true, and then put your method in there. This is a workaround for many event/while related errors. This especially helps when using poses. Note that for the indirect example, if the first event is simply reading a variable, you can eliminate it and use the while/loop function directly.

Using one event:


Using two events:

Two fewer wrlds for the community to fix.

We fix a ton of worlds all the time.
