(I'm not sure if this fits in the Beginners Technical Questions) I tried to run my game and this happened
Error: prepare_script: error -18 (no such function in script) trying to run 'ani' (Room 1)
I tried removing my last lines of code(even the whole code) but it keeps showing, please help me!

Try doing Build - Rebuild all files.

Usually this happens when game scripts desynchronize (some are newer version, and some left from old version of the game).

Just one shot in the dark, after you've deleted the whole script go to build -> rebuild all files and it should compile again.

Edit: Crimson Wizard much faster.

check the room's EVENTS (the yellow lightbolt), do you have one called "ani"? delete it.

Also object and hotspot events, if you have them in room.
