[1.22] Invalid pointer operation
 
Hi,

I've come across the following problem when using keyboard creation mode. I have an area mapped that's only partially mapped, in that not all the room->room links have been done (the n,s,e,w ones are done, but not the ne,se,nw,sw ones if that makes sense). So using zMapper and Keyboard creation mode, I 'walk' the areas to create the rooms. It's all fine, but after about 10 rooms or so (sorry I haven't counted) the mapper then often shrieks with an Invalid Pointer operation message box. Then we get our old favourite: The Access violation. The Access violation doesn't come at the same address all the time though and I've only managed to note a couple down.

0058CDD5 at read address of 00000095
004024B4 at read address of 00F4FEFC
0041D24B at read address of 39362D2C (this one then repeats a lot)
0046235E at read address of 72646465
0040231C at read address of 20737375 (this one repeats a lot too)

The ones that repeat end up 'just continually repeating' and I eventually had to Task Manager -> End Task to stop it.

What version of Windows are you using? There are some known memory and resource issues on Win98. I tried your procedure on WinXP and didn't have any problem though.

It may just be another program your running screwing things up. Do you have one of those annoying "Resource managers" running? Say like a program that's supposed to optimize your memory usage by freeing up idle memory. Those things will screw up your comp.

Em, nope, no resource managers running. As you say some of these programs are about as much use as a fart in a spacesuit, and about as welcome. I can't think of anything else offhand that might be causing it, if I get round to it I'll maybe try playing about and see if I can dig anything up.

Ta,

Could you define "not working"? That way someone will know how to help.

I get that message some times also.
Usually when i have multiple sessions open with zmud and close one.
then it refuse to load zmud again even if i reboot my computer.
have to remove everything and reinstall zmud :(

sounds like corruption in memory or hdd, possibly corrupted settings but things like this are often caused by corruption or failing hardware.

Ok so my system is basically a curing system for a MUD. Everything was working fine until I started using strings to store multiple triggers.

Variable "A"
String list "trigger line"|"Trigger line"

Now that I have done that I keep getting errors that say Invalid Pointer, but these are not the only things affected. I have a varible that reads my prompt for example.

Trigger = H:(%d)~% M:(%d)~% E:(%d)~% B:(%d)~% XP:(%d)~%
Value:
#var health %1
#var mana %2
#var endurance %3
#var blood %4
#var Exp %5
RunHealing (an alias)

This worked fine before I switched everything over, now it comes up as an invalid pointer or parsing error

Also - All of the sudden after all this my script editor went missing. I can view the settings, but no editor

This forum is for the zMapper software. You are asking a question about zMUD or CMUD. Please post your question/problem to the CMUD or zMUD forum (depending upon what program you are using). In the future, please pay closer attention to what forum you are posting in.
