Invalid Object Reference

Post by lclaudius »

I'm creating a Pax Britannica gamebox. Several counters are triangular and two-faced, so I need a mask for the front image and one for the back image. I have tried adding the following to the game-box.xml file:

Code: Select all

	<counter-sheet name="Units" 
                front-image-file="units-front.png"
                front-mask-file="mask-units-front.png">
                back-image-file="units-back.png"
                back-mask-file="mask-units-back.png">

		<counter-section columns="1" rows="1" 
		front-left="49" front-top="52" front-right="109" front-bottom="111" 
		back-left="349" back-top="65" back-right="410" back-bottom="125"
		supply="32" />

	</counter-sheet>
However, I get a fatal error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" when I try to load. Can someone help me spot the error?

The gamebox can be downloaded from http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25031709/Pax%20Britannica.ztb

Hi Iclaudius,

You should try adding the gamebox to the library (from the Menu) - this will give you a list of all the errors and help you figure out what's wrong.

However, I've already done that and fixed them - just cut and paste this into notepad and save it:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252" ?>

supply="32" />

</counter-sheet>

</game-box>

Good idea, I'll use this method in the future. Thanks for the tip!

Thanks again, Bill, I'm indebted to you.
