Post List of reported issues with fixes / workarounds.
See the file crash-report.txt for the last recorded error message when a crash occurs.

Modern versions of OpenRPG / Traipse will not interfere with each other when you install multiple copies to different folders.

OpenRPG crashes after splash screen
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=323
Problem:
After the splash screen, the program crashes with error message of (last line), 'AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'FNB_COLORFUL_TABS'"
Fix:
You are using wxPython 2.8.11.0 and you need wxPython 2.8.10.1
More details:
Go to the wxPython downloads page on SourceForge and get the right version of wxPython 2.8.10 for you:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/wxpython/files/

If you have Python 2.6 and win32 processor then this is the one:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/wxpyth ... e/download


"Failed to connect to server..."
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=339
Problem:
Connecting to all servers fails with a "Failed to connect to server..." error message.
Workaround:
You can connect to any server by bookmarking it first and then connecting via the bookmark.


OpenRPG flashes on and then exits immediately
Problem:
The command prompt / terminal / DOS-like window opens and then closes immediately before you even see a splash screen or updater dialog. Nothing recorded in crash-report.txt. Most likely this is for a fresh install.
Fix:
Unfortunately several possibilities exist. Either the Python is not installed, not working, not located by the OS, or a very early error such as a module not found or wxPython not found, or failure to load settings. Likely something has gone wrong with the installation process. Re-installing OpenRPG may fix the problem
More details:
With an error line near the bottom mentioning, File "....\orpg\tools\settings.py", Line XXX
Failing to load Settings file.

With an error saying, "ImportError: No module named wxversion" you probably need to install wxPython manually as it has somehow failed to install correctly.

With the Mac


OpenRPG fails with message about ElementTree
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=322&p=3301#p3301
Problem:
The last line of the error message / traceback reads, "ImportError: No module named ElementTree"
Fix:
With the main branch OpenRPG 1.8.0. Not sure what is going wrong at the moment but OpenRPG becomes unable to find a file, "\orpg\external\etree\ElementTree.py" after initially working successfully and updating. Reinstalling may fix this and installing Traipse has worked fine.


Can't reload a map that has text on it
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=308&view=previous
Problem:
Currently OpenRPG has a bug that has loading maps choke on apostrophes (or possibly double quotes with Traipse).
Workaround:
At the moment the only solution is to avoid the offending character within your text on a map. If you have a large map you cannot load then you can try to edit it using a text or XML editor. Look for (in a text editor) the phrase, "text_string=" and look at the following text to remove any apostrophe or double quote character within the opening and closing quotes.
Fix:
Fixed in latest Traipse.


Get rid of annoying code window / DOS box
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=299&view=previous
Problem:
This is not an error but older versions of OpenRPG had an option for not showing the logging window which appears as a black dialog with mostly white text.
Workaround:
On Windows you can just rename the file extension of whatever file you use to start OpenRPG (typically start_client.py) from .py to .pyw


Trying to learn how to use OpenRPG
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=289&view=previous
Problem:
Trying to find help with OpenRPG's features or help joining or starting a game.
Fix:
Follow the link above for a list of resources and advice.

Got as far back in the archives as:
A few problems....

That's on page 3 which is about half way through all the threads we've had since the move to the new forums here.

Updated.
Is the map apostrophe fix backwards compatible with old saved maps?

Yeah. The fix is in my Beta. I think. I need to update the Beta code. I will probably do that tonight. I just don't want to push the wrong files, that is why I am stalling now.

I have upgraded to the Ubuntu 10.10 which uses wxPython 2.8.11, with no easy way to downgrade and of course OpenRPG is not working. Is there a fix coming or am I on my own ?

The current Traipse beta works with 2.8.11. The problem arises due to the renaming of COLORFUL to COLOURFUL.

I'm having a major problem with images in general. Something to do with not saving the image to my temp files, I think.
Saw this around here a few times, but no answers that made any sense to a non-scripter like me. Noob fix 4 this plz?

The problem is most likely due to DJ's remote image server. Are you trying to use images from your HD?

well originally the problem was with a mini a player had added. Then I saved one of my maps and when I tried bringing it back up, I got the same error.

Wat do?
