Having Script Problems? (in General)


AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] October 18 2006 6:33 PM EDT

Hello people, I want to make my script work perfect, so I'm going to ask everyone to document all problems they are having here. If anyone is having ANY problems with my script at all, can you please document the problem here on this thread, using this format:


Short Problem Description: (just describe it real quick in a couple sentances, I don't want a 2 page essay describing your problem)
Firefox Version: (find this by clicking Help > About Mozilla Firefox)
Greasemonkey Version: (find this by clicking Tools > Extensions, then looking at the greasemonkey entry, it is the number next to it)
Other Firefox Extensions Installed: (just a list of all of them)
Operating System: (for those windows users, right click My Computer and click properties, it should say something like Windows XP or Windows ME or something)
Virus Scanner: (if you have one installed, list it here, such as Norton, McAfee, AVG, PandaSoft, etc)
Firewall: (if you have one installed, list it here, such as Norton, Zonelabs, Sygate, etc.)
Are you using the latest CB GM Script?(if not, install it from here: http://www.defhoboz.biz/misccb2enhancements.user.js and see if the problem goes away first)


Copy and paste this into your post if you want to get all the fancy bold text:
(If you do use this text template, make sure to set Message Text to "HTML" instead of "Plain Text")

Firefox Version:1.07
Greasemonkey Version:I don't know where to look for that.
Other Firefox Extensions Installed:Just your script and StumbleUpon.
Operating System:Windows XP
Virus Scanner:Norton (HAH, what a joke)
Firewall:I leave my firewall down generally.
Are you using the latest CB GM Script?Heck yeah I am babyyy!

Glory, an increasing memory footprint does not equal a memory leak.

Kultur, you can go in and change your Forge master formulas yourself quite easily. Just save the script to your computer and edit it with notepad. Go and find the formula your trying to fix then change it to what it should be. It goes as follows in the forge script... (First Heat Cycle) (First Quench Cycle) (Second Heat Cycle) ( Last Quench Cycle)

I had already changed it (which is why I had the lines of code in my response), but it should still be changed so that in future versions it is correct, and so other people don't lose their BA due to what I am assuming is a small typo.

"Glory, an increasing memory footprint does not equal a memory leak."

When memory is used in an application and not cleaned up correctly, the memory footprint will grow indeterminately unless their is a garbage collection process to auto cleanup memory references on the heap. When I fight without the script, my Firefox instance does not grow in memory, while with the script enabled it increases with every battle and does not get cleaned up. Therefore, I am, and I believe most people would classify that as a memory leak or memory problem with the script. In other words, memory that does not get cleaned up, is considered leaking.

Glory, just so you are aware, greasemonnkey itself does seem to cause memory leakage. I've reported this to the author of Greasemonkey and the developers, so hopefully they will do something about it soon.
