RE: Strange Unidentifiable Bug

Is there any .map_cache in your CS folder at CS/maps/? Because if you have changed everything in Level Ed and you say it doesn't in-game, that might be the problem...

RE: Strange Unidentifiable Bug

About the unclickable stuff:

Sometimes areas have conflicts, you might want to try putting the interacting area outside the area (so it isn't inception)

And, for the rope, is there any .rope file assigned?

I removed the rope, but there wasnt, I replaced it with an entity rope as seen in the pictures.

Oops, sorry it's true... I'm clueless then, sorry Sad

RE: Strange Unidentifiable Bug

Now that I think about it... what does the hpl.log say?

RE: Strange Unidentifiable Bug

Do you get a "Outliner" error when saving the map? Because these items in the list totally seem like something like that.

Having outliner entities can do some serious weird shit, they made some static_objects disappear from my map once, only in-game though. You might want to check that.

Yeah, this is the definition of an Outliner:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outlier

In statistics, an outlier is an observation that is numerically distant from the rest of the data.

I'll tell you a tale of mine:

I was working in one my maps. I was setting lights, I Ctrl+S'd and an error popped up (it was more or less like this):

"Found some Outlier entities while saving! Check hpl.log for more details"

In Amnesia terms, an outlier would be something that is VERY far from the center of a map (like X=1000000, y=0, z=0. There can be more numbers and zeros, however 0_0)

So, I had no idea what that was. I said to myself "just some casual stuff, nothing bad" but when I played the map, a lot of walls disappeared, the map had holes, etc. When I went to the hpl.log, it said some outlining entities:

SpotLight_6
//More stuff

So, I hit Ctrl+F, "SpotLight_6", and you know where I find it? A BILLION meters from the center. When I deleted it (and other oulining stuff), it seemed to fix the problem: Everything was fine.

So, make sure you don't have any outlining entities, play your map and check your hpl.log again. There's something that just isn't okay. Outlining stuff usually comes from human and perspective errors, so it's not a bad habit to drag a box to the horizon and see if there's anything.

If desperate, you can send me your map and I'll see what I can do Smile

For some reason when I read this thread title, I figured this was discussion on some newly discovered species of insect. Tongue

How did you exactly do it? What was the problem? I'm curious :|
