probably a simple question
« on: March 18, 2009, 12:45:55 AM »

probably going to appear a naive idiot with this question.

Are there any limitations as to where I can place a function - I can create a function perfectly well in the screen-init script, but if I try and create the same function in a script which is linked to an entity I get a compiler error, any thoughts as to what I am doing wrong I

the function is very simple

function xray ()
{
Game.MSG("Hello");
return:
}

xray();

Code: WME Script
  1. function xray ()
  2. {
  3. Game.MSG("Hello"); <--- It should be Game.Msg("Hello");
  4. return: <----  is that a colon? Should be a semicolon
  5. }
  6.  
  7. xray();
  8.

Also if you say you're getting an error, always say WHAT error.

sorry  the : was a typo problem also persists with a semi-colon - the error message was a standard could not complite the script - this was taken from the logfile, if there is a respository with a more detailed error message I could look that up - In retrospect I am now wondering if the problem was due to a missing brace somewhere, in any event thank you for the interest.

Sorry, but if you don't give us the EXACT error message (which contains line number, btw) and the EXACT script that gives you the error, I don't think anyone will be able to help you.
