Issues Help Desk / Turning On A Variable Disables Character Movement
« on: December 18, 2017, 09:42:56 pm »
Self-quote, from the other thread:
I may have discovered another bug.  For some reason, turning on a user-defined variable (by holding a button) messes with a character's movement.  The character either stops moving, or moves in weird ways.  I haven't been able to duplicate this in my experiment file (the "Jump" one), but I'll keep trying to figure out what's wrong.  In the meantime, if this helps, the character's movement uses variables as well; the hspeed and vspeed variables in the "Step" event.
Last I checked, this was never solved in the original thread I posted it in.  That's partially my fault.  As I am having this issue in a game I made in GM8 and hope to sell--and was also hoping to port to Enigma--I declined to provide the file.  I attempted to duplicate the bug with a new game specially made to duplicate this issue, but I couldn't.

I'd appreciate all the help I can get in digging up what might be causing this issue.  Admittedly, that might not be too easy without me providing the game, but maybe we can work something out.  Note that I actually can provide the code for the parts of my game that have this problem.

Issues Help Desk / Download for the Tutorial is Broken
« on: August 14, 2017, 07:21:03 pm »
This tutorial, I mean.  The zip file of resources is a dead link.  I in all likelihood don't need that stuff to make a game that simple, and given my experience with GM, chances are I won't need this tutorial, period, but it never hurts to be sure.

So, is there a working archive of such things?

Issues Help Desk / Are old versions of Java even SAFE?
« on: August 11, 2017, 01:27:19 am »
I know I sound pretty chicken, here, so let's just get this over with.

I am having compile errors when starting up Enigma; the Help page on this site says that could be because it will only work with Java 7.  Thus I followed the links to the the page that hosts the Java 7 download.  It warns:
WARNING: These older versions of the JRE and JDK are provided to help developers debug issues in older systems. They are not updated with the latest security patches and are not recommended for use in production.

For production use Oracle recommends downloading the latest JDK and JRE versions and allowing auto-update.

Only developers and Enterprise administrators should download these releases.

Which...kind of scares me.  I'm new to this, so to people who actually are up to speed on that, what's the risk from using older Java versions (mine is normally 8)?  What constitutes "use in production", and what bad things can happen from lack of the latest security patches?
