General Discussion / Re: plug in "invalid character " error !
« on: September 15, 2014, 11:04:00 am »
      well I finally got my plug in working again , but I did everything to do it like going line by line checking for spaces etc. 500 lines (whew) and it still gave me the same error , I then copied and replaced some of the same stuff in the other part of the plug in (thinking something might have gotten messed up , and I still had the errors . so I found my original plug in  and put it in and it worked fine , but something I did notice is this one doesn't have a random number on the timer , so maybe this was something to do with the error I was getting ! thanks anyway to all who tried to help, man sometimes glitches can drive a person crazy !

WEll I did find some errors by going just line by line I found two response lines one after the other  and corrected that and some double spaces between some words so I am checking line by line still am up to line 110. may do the others tomorrow am getting burnt out on it , whew !
it still though doesn't make sense showing a line error that's higher then how many lines I have .

I did use the amil file with this brain at one time but removed it later as it changed my pre set questions I had already done but I also used cloads  plug in . I have also tried using useing the regular hal brain default with this plug in and still get the same error .
I re downloaded SQLite
and here is a pic showing the last lines as high as it goes .
To me this simply doesn't make sense it's showing an error line higher then what I have , it's the same way if I open it through the hal editor . I only have one plug in checked , so no others are interfering with it .
 I have also exited hal and reopened it , and have the same problem , I even restarted my pc and tried hal , still have the same problem .
If Robert is around , Robert do you have any idea what is causing this ?

I AM working on a different plug in error now on my extended talk , I had changed corrected some things and now am getting an error . ( funny thing is I don't see how it was working before without errors as it has spaces where it shouldn't in lines )
the weird thing is that it is giving me an error line 2192 in column 224 expected end of statement , I have went through the whole thing and see nothing , I used crimpson editor and my lines only go to 1288 column 7 not 2192 .
 SO I am not sure how to track it down I tried status bar to and have the same problem .
Anyone have any idea why this is doing this ?
I also tried opening my angela brain and have the same problem . the lines don't go that high to trace it and find it .

I do have the name of the plug in and matching , I have made some progress on it , I found out after changing from the multiple questions to just two of ones I used before I stopped getting a error so that multiple questions must have been wrong for the trigger words .  I know have 50 answers in it with no errors but am having trouble getting more to work , i'll work on it some more later today maybe .

I started trying to do deductions on figuring out why the plug in isn't working I even cut all but one answer and renamed the random number to one . I did get the syntek error to stop ( apparently it was in the multiple questions area  so I used just two from another plug in )
But for some reason the plug in when checked  will not work correctly when I use the trigger words classic tv or old tv shows .
  she just talks normally mentioning other things I have talked about before with tv shows .

anyone have any idea why this isn't working ?

here is my simple layout I have now .

Like I said I am getting no errors , but it's like the plug in just isn't working when the trigger words are used , and I copied and pasted them  so the trigger words I used are correct

Art I believe someone showed me about making multiple questions and I copied and pasted it from their example , that is unless I made a mistake somehow , I will correct it as you have it and try it.

Has anyone had a chance to look at this yet ? even out of the 105 I cut it in half and corrected the random number to 50 to and am still getting the invalid character error I mentioned , which is why I am wondering if maybe the symbols within some sentences  ( ) are whats causing the error ?  I am pooped out we just mowed the grass and washed the van , so maybe later i'll try removing the symbols I am talking about if I get no answers from anyone .

Okay , Art and others here is part of it , this shows up to 10 replies , it is a tv trivia plug in for us old timers  lol! As I mentioned in some sentences as I copied and pasted it has the symbols ( ) . would this be causing the invalid character error ? or something else , the sentence number is correct I have 105 lines . Also within some sentences their are semi colons , these symbols :   so it could be that to , I am not familiar with all symbols that may cause a invalid symbol within a plug in.

The Tuscan, Arizona, native had aspirations of making it as a singer early on, and after migrating farther West, attended both the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and the Elizabeth Holloway School of Theatre."
Case 6
GetResponse = "When aspirations of making it as a singer early on, Eden was able to persevere and landed her first television role in 1957 on an episode of I Love Lucy titled Country Club Dance. Next came a lead role on the TV version of the hit Marilyn Monroe film How to Marry a Millionaire. After a few more television guest shots and appearances in a slew of films including Flaming Star, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and 7 Faces of Dr. Lao, in 1965 Eden was offered what would turn out to be the role of a lifetime on Sidney Sheldonís NBC series, I Dream of Jeannie."

At the time network execs didnít expect the show to remain on the air very long, but it ultimately lasted five seasons and 139 episodes."
Case 8
GetResponse = "Since she barbra eden, was pregnant during the filming of season one, Barbara Eden was nearly always shot in close-up; on wider shots she was draped in veils. Larry Hagman was reportedly very difficult to deal with during production. Itís been said that if he didnít like a script he would vomit and urinate all over the set. He also didnít endear himself to many guest stars, including Sammy Davis, Jr., who was put off by Hagman repeatedly drooling like a baby when he was asked to read Davisí lines off-camera during a scene. The antique bottle that was Jeannieís home during the show was actually a bottle of Jim Beamís Choice Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky, which was decorated by the art department."
Case 9
GetResponse = "As was common with most shows filmed at the time, sets from other programs, including The Monkees, The Partridge Family and Bewitched, were used as locations during filming of I Dream of Jeannie. Barbara Edenís belly button could sometimes be seen during the first two seasons, but was always covered after someone made mention of it to network executives. Producers never allowed Jeannie to be shown in Major Nelsonís bedroom without the door being open."
Case 10
GetResponse = "NBC execs were so sure the show i dream of jeanie wouldnít be around very long that they initially wanted to film the entire first season in black-and-white, since shooting color wouldíve added approximately $400 to the cost of each episode. Eventually they caved and a number of episodes from season one were in fact filmed in color."
