Can't edit or install scripts

Post by Jack Spade »

I hope I have this in the right place. I'm trying to install some very simple scripts in uploaded mesh objects, but I can't get them to work. I can edit the script if it's in inventory, but if I put it in the object's inventory, it never starts, and if I open it to edit both the Running and Mono checkboxes are grayed out. If I try to edit it while it's in the object's inventory, I get the "Script saved" chat message, and then a dialog box telling me "Unable to upload" with the reason "Please try again later". I'm on Firestorm 4.5.1.38838.

Screen shot

Any help would be appreciated.

This is a fairly common issue, it happens with all viewers I've tried, and both opensim and SL. Luckily it doesn't happen on a regular basis.

It usually clears itself after teleporting to a different sim, or after a region restart. If it happens again, suggest logging off for 5 minutes which will give time for the world to restart itself and hopefully clear the error.

PS. Kitely is awesome.

This has been going on for several days now, through numerous departures and restarts. Any other ideas?

I've also tried other viewers, and deleting and recreating the region.

Oh dear, how very frustrating. :(

I wish I could help, but all I can offer is sympathy.

Hi Jack,

If you have the script's text then please try using it to create a new script and report if this changes anything.

I've managed to get it fixed. This involved deleting the region, deleting all related assets, uninstalling Firestorm, reinstalling Firestorm, starting with a fresh region, and re-creating the script. But finally my chairs have sit targets.

Code: Select all

default
{
    state_entry()
    {
        llSitTarget( <0, -0.3, 0.35>, llEuler2Rot( <0, 0, -90> * DEG_TO_RAD ) );
        llOwnerSay( "Set sit target" );
        llRemoveInventory( llGetScriptName() );
    }
}
