Unhandled exception...

Postby PHatDriver » Thu Mar 09, 2017 12:22 am

Sorry about this but anyone know how to fix this.
Trying to delete a room and this keeps poping up:

Unhandled exception...
Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Thank you people...

Hi,
What was the set from which you were trying to delete? I built a quick example to test this (see attached pic) I got a different error (although completely expected due to my circumstances)
What did you have before you tried to delete?

"Object reference not set to an instance of an object" could be just about anything, so without a sample it'd be hard to know what was causing it.

Thanx for the replies.

Okay. It isn't an error within adrift. It's a crash popup error.

I've managed to work around this error, by not deleting the rooms and just relabling (naming) them, so no longer a prob but hate workarounds and this has happened a few times. I've started from scratch twice now.

Nightmare. I now realise the importance of backups:) I believe the error will still be there tho - will check later.

So I made say, 12 rooms.
Linked all rooms to each other including diagonals. It was a bit of a mess so deleted one of the rooms, then deleted another and crash with the error above.

Seem adrift is getting confused when removing rooms, maybe?

I find that this sometimes happens when I delete a location and forget to cancel any links to this location from other locations around it.

Okay, Lazzah. Ill keep that in mind, thank you sir. Manually delete locations to rooms before deleting room itself - check!
