Having trouble with WriteFile (2.6.0)
« on: April 29, 2007, 07:03:45 pm »
When I try to use WriteFile or WriteLnFile I get:
  • Run-time error (OnCommand): Access violation at address 00403EC2 in module 'soldatserver.exe'


I'm using WriteFile on a script I'm working on.
I tried it in a simple procedure (that is called through OnCommand) just to make sure and it stills crashes.

Code: [Select]
procedure test(Text: string);
begin
  WriteLnFile('test.txt', Text);
end;

function OnCommand(ID: Byte; Text: string): boolean;
begin
  if (Text = '/test') then test('just testing!');
  Return := false
end;

It works, "just testing" is written to test.txt, but after that I get the Run-time error.
I had a lot of trouble with GetPiece in this version too. In 2.5.4 the index started at 1, in the new version it seems to start at zero. I was in a hurry so I didn't test it very much, but it was giving me a headache so I used the split function instead.

Can anyone test the WriteFile and WriteLnFile functions and report if it works for you?
Thanks.

Here's the output:

Code: [Select]
/log
|| ScriptFunc(OnAdminMessage);
|| ScriptCore.SetVariables();
Command
|| ScriptFunc(OnCommand);
|| ScriptCore.SetVariables();
|| ScriptCore.AppendFile(test.txt);
 [*] Run-time error (OnCommand): Access violation.......

Hope it helps.

You will find the file is still created.

Fixed it now anyway

Yep, it creates (if needed) and writes to the file.
But after that it crashes.

Should I wait for a new version of the Dedicated?

In the future, for small bugs like this I am going to put "pre-release" soldatserver binaries on my website for download. Only for small fixes relating to the script core.

Dedicated Server Pre-Release 2.6.1
"You need to be a registered member to download this file..."
Ok.. registered myself.
"You need 15+ posts before you can dowload this file"

OMG why is it so hard to just grab an update? :(
I haven't updated my clan's server to 2.6.0 until now because WriteFile didn't work and I need it for my scripts. And now there's all this complications to just download the update.

You should download the xsplit code snippet, then you can rename its function to split. And it will work for Linux too.

People are gonna have to use xsplit, I can not include Split as built-in now because the TStringArray variable causes access violations when being used between soldatserver<->script.
