Hi !

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:

I think the error come from this part of code cause when i delete it the game start normally:

Code: Select all

textbutton _("Nouvelle partie") action If(persistent.playername, true=Start(), false=Show(screen="name_input", message="Veuillez entrer votre nom", confirm_action=Function(FinishEnterName)))

init -501 screen name_input(message, confirm_action):

    modal True

    zorder 200

    style_prefix "confirm"

    add "gui/overlay/confirm.png"
    key "K_RETURN" action [Play("sound", gui.activate_sound), confirm_action]


        has vbox:
            xalign .5
            yalign .5
            spacing 30

        label _(message):
            style "confirm_prompt"
            xalign 0.5

        input default "" value VariableInputValue("player") length 15 allow "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"

            xalign 0.5
            spacing 100

            textbutton _("confirmer") action confirm_action
Thank you for help !!
