Phone issue

Postby ohhaykfrankk » Mon Mar 18, 2019 1:07 am

I made a phone that was previously working at least to the speed dial. You "use phone" and it's supposed to set the phone to "in use" and give you the speed dial numbers. Then once you type a number, it calls the person. Not a real conversation, but I might need help with that later. I found someone's idea about using a phone marker and putting us in the same room, yada yada. Anyway, earlier, it called the person. Now, I made the property and a bunch of other things that I don't remember so now I can't get it to work again. It makes it seem like the phone still isn't in use. I've attached the example. Maybe someone can tell me where I went wrong?
Sorry...and thank you.

There is a bug that doesn't allow spaces in the names of states. (#19155)
1) Remove the spaces from the states so they become:
2) Save the game and exit the developer
3) Open the game in the developer (You need to do this to refresh the developers internal state)
4) Edit the action in "use phone" to use "InUse"
5) Edit the restriction in "Call Friend" to use "InUse"

Thank you! That worked like a charm. I thought I was crazy.
