Collection Proxy problems

#1

So I’m trying to load a proxy ("debug"). However, I get

ERROR:GAMEOBJECT: The collection 'debug' could not be created since there is already a socket with the same name.
ERROR:GAMEOBJECT: AcquireResources NewCollection RESULT_OUT_OF_RESOURCES
WARNING:RESOURCE: Unable to create resource: /areas/test_place/debug.collectionc: OUT_OF_RESOURCES
ERROR:GAMESYS: The collection /areas/test_place/debug.collectionc could not be loaded.

I don’t know what’s wrong, I’ve checked every collection I have and none of them have the same name.
Someone look at this, please?

Thank you~

Find an instance's URL through collisions?

Hey there.
Check your collection’s name properties.

Emm… That’s what I was talking about?
All of them had different names, and I even tried changing them under properties…

Then that means you loaded debug twice.

Oh.
So basically I have to go though all of my code to look for where I loaded it twice?

Well, not all of your code. But yes, you need to look for where it gets loaded twice.

DEBUG:SCRIPT: debug2
WARNING:GAMEOBJECT: Instance is initialized twice, this may lead to undefined behaviour.
Assertion failed: !component->m_AddedToUpdate, file ..\src\gamesys\components\comp_collision_object.cpp, line 832

D:
I guess I’ll have to look for where it init twice…
Also, where is

..\src\gamesys\components\comp_collision_object.cpp, line 832

anyway?
I think it’d be helpful in trying to fix this. : /

That would be here in the engine source code. You shouldn’t need it to fix a problem in your code.

Oh.
Well, good to know anyway, I guess~

Alright, I’ve been looking for a while and I can’t seem to find where the problem is (maybe because I’m not looking in the right places?)

Is there anyone who can help me look for where the double-init might be? (I can send you my project if you give me your email) Or maybe give me some advice on where to look properly?

Send it to me (justapotota.dev@gmail.com) and I’ll take a look.

The problem was in /overworld/overworlds.script. I’m still not sure what exactly caused the error, but just cleaning up the script seems to have fixed it.

Original
function init(self)
	local rendercam = require "rendercam.rendercam"
end

local curarea = "notexist"
local newcurarea = ""

function on_message(self, message_id, message, sender)
	if message_id == hash("load_area") then
		msg.post("#"..curarea, "disable")
		msg.post("#"..curarea, "unload")
		msg.post("#"..message.new_area, "load")
		msg.post("#"..message.new_area, "enable")
		curarea = message.new_area
		area = message.new_area
		print(curarea)
	end
	if message_id == hash("load_area2") then
		msg.post("#"..curarea, "disable")
		msg.post("#"..curarea, "unload")
		msg.post("#"..message.new_area, "load")
		msg.post("#"..message.new_area, "init")
		curarea = message.new_area
		area = message.new_area
		print(curarea)
	end
end
Fixed
local rendercam = require "rendercam.rendercam"

-- This sets curarea to nil
local curarea
local newcurarea = ""

function on_message(self, message_id, message, sender)
	if message_id == hash("load_area") or message_id == hash("load_area2") then
		-- 'if curarea then'  is the same as  'if curarea ~= nil then'
		if curarea then
			msg.post("#"..curarea, "disable")
			msg.post("#"..curarea, "final")
			msg.post("#"..curarea, "unload")
		end
		msg.post("#"..message.new_area, "load")
		print("Loading area '" .. message.new_area .. "'")
		
		curarea = message.new_area
	elseif message_id == hash("proxy_loaded") then
		msg.post(sender, "enable")
	end
end

P.S. You should take the time to go through your project and do some cleanup while it’s still relatively small. It really does make everything so much easier down the line.
