Having Trouble with the Light (Lantern/Spotlight) Plugin

Postby Sedani Studio » Tue Dec 23, 2014 6:19 am

Fellow Game Creators:

I am working on a project, and have enabled the light effect plugin (http://hickchickgames.com/downloads/spo ... plugin.zip) in the project properties and then in the frame properties, but I get a series of errors when I attempt to test the frame. Perhaps the problem is that I'm working in Windows 8.1?

While I'm at it, I'm experiencing a problem where, after I create a project, then exit and later restart the program, it won't let me reload the project. It claims that it is "write protected" and that I need to contact the authors. Groan!

If you can be of any help, I'd appreciate it. I've attached some screenshots below to illustrate my problem.

Thanks!

I love this plugin, but unfortunately it doesn't work with the latest version of AM.
However, if you see where the issue is running a plugin, one step you should always try is to execute the command that registers DLLs.

Run command prompt as Administrator:
%systemroot%\SysWoW64\regsvr32.exe "C:\Users\<your username>\Documents\Adventure Maker v4.7\Shared\Plugins\<your plugin file>.ocx"


PLEASE NOTE: You need to get the write-protection issue fixed first before trying to fix anything else. You are running into compound issues without fixing it first and it is hard to tell if there is more than 1 issue otherwise.
See your other post on issues with Write-Protection. Lets get that fixed first! :wink:

Thanks again to both of you. If you saw my other post, you know that now my light effect works, but I still can't get into my old projects!

Time to shoot Giovanni an email.

Is anyone else having issues with this?
