|Summary||0000079: Fatal Error when starting Happy Time Circus 2 (circus2.wad)|
|Description||Happy Time Circus 2 won't start on the newer builds of GZDoom. I don't know when exactly it broke, but I tried both the latest stable build (2.3.2) and latest dev build (gzdoom-x64-g2.4pre-186-g0376c8b) and it didn't work in both.|
Here's the error the launcher gives:
[code=]Script error, "circus2.wad:DECORATE" line 377: State GreenDropSpawn.8 links to a state with incompatible restrictions. Execution could not continue. 1 errors during actor postprocessing[/code]
Don't know much about modding, just some simple stuff, so I can't comment on what is or isn't wrong with the code, but the mod used to work.

I'm not 100% sure what changes borks it up, but when I was working on my Circus2 patch for Aetherius, I think I came upon this issue and manually changed the DECORATE.
Go to the Pain state of "GreenDropSpawn" and change "Goto See + 10" to "Goto See". I believe it's referencing an invalid state position which wasn't being treated as a crash in previous versions. :o
Something tells me that whatever change caused this issue to crop up isn't going to be reversed though, and this is probably a modder's error. :V
You got that last part absolutely right. This is a mod error after all, and not handling such an error can cause a lot more trouble than breaking a single mod.
The error check for this situation was simply missing before, this could have crashed randomly during gameplay.
|Thanks, that worked.|
