Use of enableDebugConsole[] in description.ext leads to error dialog in Zeus
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Given a mission with a description.ext that uses the array form of enableDebugConsole, bringing up a Zeus attributes dialog will show an error message dialog saying "'enableDebugConsole/' is not a value", requiring the player to dismiss the dialog. The report file will also show the following message

Warning Message: 'enableDebugConsole/' is not a value


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Zeus - General
Steps To Reproduce

Run the attached mission

Enter Zeus, then double click the curated HEMTT. You should see both the attribute editor for the truck, and an error dialog overlaying the attribute editor. Check the report file and you'll see the warning message there.

Additional Information

Dismissing the error dialog allows normal use of the attribute editor dialog. The dialog and message are created only the first time an attribute dialog is brought up by Zeus. Apparently some sort of initialization code is expecting only the numeric forms of enableDebugConsole. The numeric forms do not produce an error.

This error is probably related to the 'Execute' box in which you can execute code.
When using enableDebugConsole[], the error appears and the 'Execute' box is gone.
Using enableDebugConsole numerical, the 'Execute' box is present with no errors.
