Merging issues

Questions about the content creation procedure go here, including using Forge, Anvil, or other editors, or operating emulators like Basilisk II.

so, I have this merging problemb... My terminal text ain't showing when I play it...
I went over to Forges merging log and found this on the level im having trouble with.

What does it mean when a control panel is out of range? and what do I have to do to fix it

Code: Select all
Processing: L07.Migraine
    Didn't find terminal text file, but that's OK since this level seems to be a net level.
    Didn't find physics file 'P07.Migraine'
Processing: L08.Randral4
    Adding terminal text file 'T08.Randral4'
Side 0 control panel is out of range: 0/0 (poly: 7)
NOTE: This IS FATAL!
Side 38 control panel is out of range: 1/0 (poly: 17)
NOTE: This IS FATAL!
Side 112 control panel is out of range: 4/0 (poly: 59)
NOTE: This IS FATAL!
Side 115 control panel is out of range: 5/0 (poly: 60)
NOTE: This IS FATAL!
Side 182 control panel is out of range: 3/0 (poly: 67)

Hah, I got this bug when merging TGI the first couple times. Anyway, what it means is that you have terminals that don't have text assigned to them. You can break it down easily:

Side # refers to the line in Forge; you can use Forge's goto command to find the line. On this line will be the terminal in question. Presumably the poly number is the one that contains said line.

The fraction 0/0, 1/0, etc. refers to the terminal you're trying to define vs. the highest-number terminal actually defined, though in this case it looks like you don't have any terminal text at all.

I had the terminal text there... same name prefix etc...
so I pushed around some stuff here and there... and decided to scrap that terminal script for that level, and paste/ make a new one (thinking that the other one was corrupted)... annnd? it worked! rather odd... but by george... ive got it! (as weird as it may seem)

Code: Select all
    Adding terminal text file 'T06.Arrested development'
    Didn't find physics file 'P06.Arrested development'

Oddly enough, that problem also occured to me during early TGI merges.
