28. after a little deeper look the error is fooling me... is this the exact error you get in the commandline when using current svn? also pinging our ai dev @mimo

 

Yes, can you give more details: A22 or svn? only when loading your mod or also in vanilla? if only with your mod, have you added some attack Bonuses?

Both.

It occures only in mid to late game, and not in every game. It happens in my mod, yes. I don't know if it also happens in vanilla, I never continue vanilla single player games beyond a few minutes.

Yes, I certainly did. I already went through the templates looking for typos (e.g. “Bonus” or “Class” instead of “Bonuses” or “Classes”; missing or wrongly placed </>).

 

 

30. Found it: /gui/session/selection_details.js Changed it and it seems to work as intended :)

By the way, here is a new save game (attached) with the error message, maybe it could help.

I've not been able to run your mod: I first selected a skirmish map, and there were a lot of errors linked to skirmish templates. So i tried a random map, and then the game froze at startup. Have you tried to run it using the zip file from your git repository?

Anyway, can you add in line 312 of ai/common-api/entity.js (i.e. just before it crashes in your stack)

if (!bonusClasses) warn(" Template " + this._templateName + " with Attack " + uneval(this.get("Attack")) + " has no bonus with type " + type + " bonus " + b);

And copy here what is printed. That should help understand what happen.

That's probably because I implemented a new template tree; I haven't looked at skirmish maps, (I actually forgot they existed), because I always play random maps, but I'll look at it to see if I can easily solve those issues.

EDIT: there are indeed many error messages; I'll need to have a more careful look at this; thanks for pointing it out!

PS How and why are skirmish maps different from random maps?

Yeah, somehow generating random maps is quite slow; it usually stays at 99% for up to a few minutes. Loading an existing saved game is much faster though.

No, I fetch the repository directly (git clone, git pull, git push); however, the zip contains exactly the same files, and I don't see why it would make any difference whether it's zipped or not. Anyway, I'll try it out now.

EDIT: if I place the zipped version in the mods folder, 0AD doesn't recognize it. After I unzipped it, it works exactly the same as the repository fetch with command line git (which was to be expected, because they contain the same files).

 

 

Have you tried running the mod under the stable a22 (which ought to work), or under the newer svn version (to which this mod is probably not fully compatible)?

Thanks! I'll try that and see what happens.

EDIT: here is the new output:

Three other questions:

31. I'd like to display metal everywhere (costs, loot, market, etc.) consistently before stone; which files do I need to edit?

 

 

32. Likewise, I'd like to display crush armour and damage everywhere before hack (instead of after pierce).

 

 

33. Where are the player colours defined? I would prefer them to be brighter in my mod.

I don't think it is the map generation as this is much worse that in vanilla game. It should be something you do during initialization.

Something I do? I've only changed files in simulation/templates/ and simulation/data/ ; how does this affect random map initialization?

 

Anyway, any suggestions for that AI error?

Yeah: “everywhere”, “etc”, “consistently” :)

I've no idea what is done in the mod (and don't have time to try to know), but just load a few maps with vanilla game and with your mod and you will see the difference

No because this new error you get has nothing to do with the previous one. Are you sure you don't have a JS syntax error when adding the warning?

Otherwise, I've just tried a game between AIs with your mod and did not reproduce the error.

To test I generated several random giant random maps with five players each:
Without 0abc: 25s, 23s, 24s, 18s, 5s
With 0abc: 115s, 183s, 162s, 138s, 165s
(of which it takes about 15s to get to 99%)
So it is indeed significantly slower, although I have no idea why. Does initialization time depend on the number of templates in existence?

Yeah, the new output surprised me as well.

No, I'm not; I just followed your earlier instructions:

if (!bonusClasses) warn(" Template " + this._templateName + " with Attack " + uneval(this.get("Attack")) + " has no bonus with type " + type + " bonus " + b);

And copy here what is printed. That should help understand what happen.

Anyway, I tried the above again, and now the following error messages are immediately and continuously produced when starting a game:

ERROR: JavaScript error: simulation/ai/common-api/entity.js line 13 TypeError: this._templateName is undefined m.Template<._init@simulation/ai/common-api/entity.js:13:7 m.GameState.prototype.getTemplate@simulation/ai/common-api/gamestate.js:149:9 m.GameState.prototype.findTrainableUnits@simulation/ai/common-api/gamestate.js:710:18 m.HQ.prototype.findBestTrainableUnit@simulation/ai/petra/headquarters.js:526:11 m.HQ.prototype.trainMoreWorkers@simulation/ai/petra/headquarters.js:430:20 m.HQ.prototype.update@simulation/ai/petra/headquarters.js:2234:3 m.PetraBot.prototype.OnUpdate@simulation/ai/petra/_petrabot.js:119:3 m.BaseAI.prototype.HandleMessage@simulation/ai/common-api/baseAI.js:64:2

This happens both with and without my mod (no difference), so I suppose there is some js error now.

Yeah, the earlier error message does not occur in every game in my mod, only in some, and if it does, in the mid to late game.

 

Actually the fact I don't understand the error is more annoying than the error itself.

In fact, there is a high chance that your bug is https://trac.wildfiregames.com/changeset/19981 and is thus already fixed in svn.

If that's the case, great :)

Are you sure you also reproduced it in svn?

No, I'm not sure; I think I did a few days ago, but I'm now starting to doubt.

 

Anyway, thank you for your help and time, I do appreciate it!

Found it: /simulation/data/resources/metal.json ; that was extremely easy!

(The somewhat hacky solution that will just cause issues once you have to upgrade from A22 would be to change the order of the entries in g_DamageTypes in gui/common/tooltips.js)

For 33. that will work for random maps and quite a few skirmish and scenario maps, though some of those specify the color explicitly. I might have a diff somewhere that removes a few of the explicitly set colors that are the same as the current default.

32. Then I'll leave it untouched for now.

 

33. Great, many thanks! Now I can finally easily distinguish all other players on the mini map :)

 

34. And where are the text font colours of the mod selection screen defined? (Dark grey text on a dark grey background is quite difficult to read.)

34. Thanks! So I edited the modmod.xml file, which works for all columns, except for the (folder), which I specified to be in yellow:

<column id="modFolderName" color="255 255 0" width="13%">
  <translatableAttribute id="heading">(Folder)</translatableAttribute>
</column>

Which, however, does not seem to show up:

Screenshot_from_2017-09-16_00-05-58.png

Is it because the values of all other columns are defined inside the mod.json files, except for the (folder), which is the location of the file? Then where is this colour specified?
