Description

Script errors no longer shown on screen. Was definitely working in 1.00, but broken in 1.01beta.

BIF report by SNKMan

This seems to affect most syntax and run-time script-based errors. You still get errors about things like the new namespaces, for example if you use A1 dialog code in A2.

Of particular note, you no longer get errors when referencing an undefined variable, which makes debugging as painful as it was in A1 ;)

  • Affected ArmA II version changed from 1.01.57751 to 1.02.58064

Referencing an undefined variable is in the RPT again (YAY!) for 1.02.58064, so at least now no errors seem to be completely suppressed. Still no pop-ups errors though.

Information is located in your C:\Users\<USER>\Local Settings\Application Data\ArmA 2\ folder under arma2.RPT, I personally do not mind this method thought a option to turn on the live debugger would be nice as sometimes you wish to correct code on the map layer NOT in script.

Also be nice to see problems in MP games ;)
