Convert User Actor to New Format : a strange command
Hi every one !_Please excuse my english, I'm french..._Usually, i like to understand what i am doing.I'm working on a quite big patch, which involves more of 200 actors (whose about 40 of them are users actors using 10 actors on average).Among them, i use lots of "Trigger value", and some "Float to Integer".The "Float to Integer" was bugged in the previous versions of Isadora, and i had reported it.The bug is now fixed (in fact, it is written thas it is fixed) on 1.3.1f06.A few days ago i launched my patch, and boom!, unexpected error, involving "Float to Integer". O noooo.So i decided to explore my patch again. And what a surprise : while right-clicking on a "Float to Integer",i read on the menu a line called "Convert User Actor to New Format". So, ok, i clicked on this choice.Then, right-clicking on the same "F to I" actor, the line has disappeared, and so i presumed that this particular actor has been updated, or replaced, by a new version.But,when i right-click to another "F to I", the line "Convert User Actor to New Format" is still there.Ok, so i presumed that i have to find every "F to I" actors, and update them manually.But,when i drag and drop a new "F to I" from the left menu, surprise, i have to update it too !And,while right-clicking on a "Trigger Value" actor, what a surprise, i have the same choice of "Convert etc." !So,my questions are :- am i missing something ?- is there a way (apparently not !...) to update ALL instances of ALL kind of actors which have to be updated (including those who are inside user actors) ?I am confused and doubtful...Francois Peyrony (fypy)
Mmmm, perhaps i have to be more direct in my question. I try it ?- Why is there an option, while right-clicking on an actor like "Trigger Value", named "Convert user actor to new format" ? Trigger value is a common actor, not a user actor...- When the option is checked, it disappears. Have something changed, and what, for this control ?- Is it important ??Thank you !

Dear Fypy,Sorry for the delay in responding. The fact that the "Convert User Actor to New Format" comes up in the pop-up menu is a mistake. This should only appear when you right-click (control-click) a version 1 User Actor -- which is from a long, long time ago.I have recreated the bug and it is already fixed for the next release. But for now, don't choose it on anything except a User Actor. (And probably not even then, because it is only for this very old version of the User Actor.)If you are having a crash with the Float to Integer, it is simply because something is different in your patch. If the error happens consistently, you can send me your patch to mark [atta] troikatronix [dotta] com and I will investigate.Best Wishes,MarkBest Wishes,Mark
