Title: Robot apparently silently fails to compile or edit
Post by: MUY_Belgium on December 29, 2018, 11:55:35 am
Hello,

I have made a programmable robot, then tried out some programming.  I saw that files are created in the Script/Squirrel directory, but cannot see a editor in my full screen game, but indeed no error message too. I could not realise that there was a syntaxt error in the code : no local variable declaration (variable X is not defined).  What if functin Voxel_Step is missing?

All this put together, looks as if the Programmable Robot Silently fails to compile. :'(

I think that displaying an error on execution errors should give more confidence to the player, explaining what his/her :-[ error was...

Hopes it helps,

Hi, MUY_Belgium and Welcome to the Blackvoxel Forum  :)

Thanks for your return and comments.

Yes, it appears the manual should be improved about how to start with the programming robot. The Squirrel Robot should have an ingame status display like the assembly language one already have.

In the meantime, here are quick setup instructions :
In the hope we have helped you :)
