Wondering why I'm getting a runtime error;
>>Level runs for a few minutes<<, I essentially do nothing, suddenly
Runtime error (301) pops on the screen. Any ideas?
There's nothing in the level except ONE barrel running ONE script!

All the script does is ((testing sprite on screen)) -- is there a memory
problem required to delete and respawn sprites? Hmmm... strange.

This is done ONE time within init.............
onescifitile_icon = LoadImage ( "scriptbank\\images\\onescifitile.png" )
onescifitile_sprite = CreateSprite ( onescifitile_icon )
SetSpritePosition (onescifitile_sprite, 50, 50)
end -- init ...................................

It also assigns a few variables to arrays[1200] level.
Also, the script just shows some variable info [text] on screen- that's it.

shouldn't be, you probably made a spelling mistake somewhere - any chance you can post the script?

Should I make these variables local?
(I did not), in fact forgot to >>declare<< them before the sprite assignments...?

should I example:

local onescifitile_icon = {}
local onescifitile_sprite = {}

init........................
onescifitile_icon = LoadImage ( "scriptbank\\images\\onescifitile.png" )
onescifitile_sprite = CreateSprite ( onescifitile_icon )
SetSpritePosition (onescifitile_sprite, 50, 50)
end -- init ...................................

Okay, made them local, and it seems like
the script runs for about 5 minutes (didn't time it)
before the runtime error occurs-- but it still did.

Edit.............
Thanks, fixed-- just user error because I didn't know what I was doing!
I guess when I change out sprites, I will need to delete all the current
ones? I will try that soon.
