"Buffer Exceeded" Error
« on: 06 Mar 2018, 20:15 »
Hey guys, I'm new to coding for AGS. I've tried looking up everything I can about this error, but I can't for the life of me figure out what the problem is. Maybe a second set of eyes could help me figure it out.

The error I have is "buffer exceeded: you probably have a missing bracket on a previous line." I've checked all the previous lines, but I can't figure out what it's talking about.

[EDIT] I figured it out almost instantly, sorry if this turns out to be spam mates.

I wasn't aware that by "brackets" it also meant quotation marks and all. This error is a strange one to solve since it doesn't mark the specific area of interest.

Yeah, AGS keeps looking for the end of the String for lines and lines, and the buffer will only exceed much further down the script.
