History of ToonTalk
Enhancements and Bug Fixes - 2006
Here is the list of bugs and enhancements in 2006. Similar lists for 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000,
2001, 2002, 2003,
are available as well.
- If while training a robot the main box
(My Box) is split into pieces and the pieces are joined so that the main box
ends up on the right or inside another box then sometimes the robot used to
vacuum up its box after running.
- Sometimes if a picture has a sensor on
its back and the picture has been turned into an infinite stack then ToonTalk
crashed when a copy of the picture was removed from the stack.
- When you stand up or enter a thought
bubble your hand automatically moves down off the screen. If while moving the
hand pointed to a picture which was using the Selected sensor then it used to
be triggered even if the hand was moving automatically.
- If a picture was added to a decoration
sensor (for the wall, room, or roof) and then that picture moved or changed
size by changing sensors then the decoration on the wall, room, or roof wasn't
- Released 3.183.
- If the sensor for whether a picture is
selected is on the back of a picture and that picture is copied then the
sensor in the copy showed that it is selected until it is deselected,
selected, and then deselected again.
- Released 3.184.
- Fixed a problem editing the label on a
nest or a robot with arrow keys.
- Restored a feature (after about 3
years) that when a nest is saved and all its birds have been destroyed then
when it is restored there is a new egg in the nest and a new bird will hatch.
- Scales no longer consider upper
and lower case versions of the same letter as equal. Note that scales saved as
part of old programs continue to behave as before.
- The restoration of the saving of a
nest with no birds as a nest with an egg (see 5/9) did not work (immediately)
when the nest was saved in a notebook.
- If a robot is given a box that has an
empty hole where something else is in the corresponding position in the box in
the robot's thought bubble, then the robot waits for something to be put in
that hole. For the last 3 years a portion of the box in the thought bubble
glows red. It no longer does since glowing red is understood to mean a
mismatch not a suspension of matching.
- The ToonTalk executable now supports
Spanish if a Spanish version of ToonTalk is available (it is in progress).
- Released 3.185 and Beta 51.
- If a robot was trained to type
something to something and when running that thing isn't there, the robot used
to hang. Now it continues and a warning is added to the log file.
- Fixed a bug introduced on 1/15/05 that
caused an error when rubbing out an empty robot name (e.g. typing rubout twice
after picking up a robot).
- If ran with
DontScrollOnFloor = 1 and then reset
it to 0 then you still couldn't move around on the floor if logged in with a
user name that had been saved with scrolling turned off.
- Sometimes (for example, when turned
into a stack) a user imported picture in a saved city became full sized when
- If you erased a sensor and then
vacuumed up the picture being sensed then if other objects are vacuumed so
that the picture is destroyed then the internal state became inconsistent and
crashes were possible. This can happen if the number of items vacuumed exceeds
- Released 3.186.
- Fixed a problem with the container
sensor that it doesn't show something that is on the back of something else.
- Fixed a problem where undo did nothing
when it should have been able to undo the last action of Bammer.
- Released 3.187.
