Thread: Is there a limit on how many lines your script can contain?

    Default Is there a limit on how many lines your script can contain?

    I've been making levels and I'm very tempted to quit (which saddens me as I've made many) because I've encountered an unsurpassable problem.

    I have checked my script for accuracy (no missing parenthesis etc.) and my total IF statements do not exceed 48.

    The last 1/4 of my script will never work, regardless of what I have written there. I can shuffle the code around and every part of it works provided it is above where it usually wouldn't work.

    In these sorts of situations, it's usually a good idea to post your script for someone to be able to take a look at it to have a better idea on what the problem may be.

    Dick around on your level for a bit.
    Quit and open up KeeperFX.txt
    Ctrl-F "load_script"

    That's how you check if you're going over the IF/party/whatever limits.

    As Rex said, copy-paste your script into http://pastebin.com/ and post the link.

    In the log, the only error is 'too many values', which is my problem.

    I never knew there was such a limit (includes virtually everything.. timers etc.).

    I assume that there will be no way around this other than to delete code. =\

    Do not despair. Limitations can often spur innovative solutions. I suggest you post your script here, and describe your intent, as there are a lot of very knowledgeable folks on this forum who will likely help you find a way to fix the problem. It'd be a shame to lose the hard work you've done,

    I have since fixed my scripts. I am reluctant to post incomplete files as I want everything that I create to follow a personal consistency before it is released.

    While limitations are unfortunate, I do agree that they can prompt innovation. I have made many 'last minute' revisions because of them.
