Activity (11) Rainy Monday question
Posted 28 June 2004 - 06:04 PM
I'm half way thru this puppy and was wondering about the meet in Grandview? In 2nd popup get info of meet in Grandview so's I gets there and waits and waits and waits. Finally figured I might have missed something so slap open AE and noticed no traffic on this one. Typo maybe?

Yes, the first timed pop up has "Stringbean" mentioning a meet at Grandview. That traffic was deleted and I THOUGHT all the pop-ups mentioning it were either edited or removed. I missed that mention of it.
Jim: Since you've apparently reached act #11... in the previous acts, did you have any other false messages causing such a misunderstanding in ANY of the other activities?
Reason: I fined tuned the activities until all the AI/etc were performing as designed when I personally ran the activity. Then I sent the first batch of activities to my beta testers. They were having timing troubles, so, I went back and eliminated some of the problematic meets, that meet in #11 being one of them. I have somehow overlooked the mention of it by Stringbean in the first pop up.
Sounds to me like I need to go through each activity and double check for other typos. If I find more, perhaps an update is in order.

I thought I was the only one like that!
"Anyway I'll keep my eyes open and if I see anymore will let ya know."
Good deal. 'Preciate it.
One thing that is likely the most dependable information conveyance when starting an activity: The F11 key.
If it says it within the F11 key, then it is 99% likely that it WILL be an event that will either happen as written, or will be modified or otherwise contended with.
A "crew member's" chit-chat may not be 99% accurate... I may have missed editing another one or two when I redid several of the activities when being developed. Guess this too simulates real life, huh?
