Debug Info Spam in the message log

Version : 0.A-2006

So…I had a char tooling along and minding his own business, when suddenly : SPAM! Of the debug variety…
The course of events went something like this : I found a guy, he threatened me. I ran away (he was in the process of running around and killing everything that moved). Then another NPC decided to load herself up and started spamming something similar to what you see in the log. I grew tired of that, so I activated the debug screen and 'sploded her head… Well. You know what they say about taking the easy way out? Yeah. That’s when the spam for the “r: yadayada” started.

Something on the order of r: plums 36957,36968 1791->1794
The above appeared in the message log.

I assume this isn’t normal…

Edit : Just FYI, for anyone else that runs into this… save and load.

edit : DERP debug context…bold indicates edits!

By definition an unexpected debug message isn’t spam–it’s important enough for you to report.

Got your debug.log files for upload? I’d guess that something went wrong with a pile o’ plums there, but it’d help to know what threw that message. Otherwise, I’d be Speculating.

hmm… so here? or somewhere else…?

um… I’ll pick out the important part and spoilery it here. And by important part, I mean the relavent part of the log since the game doesn’t seem to want to make distinct logfiles for each run.

My own analysis indicates that it’s related somehow to AI processing.

edit : moving debug context to OP

In advance: sorry for the harsh tone, please but the circumstance of the bug into the bug report itself (the first post). It’s very difficult to find/remove a bug if one doesn’t know how it happened.

18:30:42.639 : src/npcmove.cpp:420 NPC didn't use its moves. Action 17. Turning on debug mode.

This message, the important part being Turning on debug mode, is printed on the screen, you have to acknowledge it by pressing the space bar. It tells you what happened: debug mode has been turned on, that’s causing the debugging messages.

To revert this: go into the key bindings menu and setup a key binding for the entry “Toggle Debug Messages”. Than press those keys to toggle the debug messages (and thereby deactivating the debug mode). The messages spam should not appear anymore.

I see a potential problem here for the average user: the key binding is called “Debug Messages”, the message from the npc says something about “debug mode”. Might need to fix this.

Btw. it would be nice if you can differentiate the source of the messages: “real” debug messages are printed in red (on black background) on top of the screen and require the player to press space. The other message “r: plums 36957,36968 1791->1794” is added to the normal message log.

It helps a lot to know where the text you posted came from, as both places are very much different functions in the source code.

since the game doesn't seem to want to make distinct logfiles for each run.
Yeah, that's a known thing. It also leads to extremely huge log files.

Yeah… I should know better.

s This didn’t happen, as far as I remember. What I do remember is being confused as to why all the messages were popping up. If I had seen the ‘debug mode on’ pop up, I wouldn’t be as confused.[/s]Now I’m pretty sure that I just wasn’t paying attention. See next post.

(B) This is good to know… but I’m not sure I’m going to remember it for next time. Time will tell, I suppose. Also, you should note that saving and loading reverts the issue. So, maybe something that is saved in the game state but not put into the save file? Not… that that is of any help, potentially.

© I don’t remember seeing anything in the key bindings list for ‘debug messages’ (yes for debug mode) and I looked both there and in the debug menu. That being said, doesn’t mean it’s not there.

(D) The messages for the NPC AI related issues (tracking player, differentiating between short and long term objectives), all appeared as the “DEBUG” text… the others, as you have correctly pointed out, appear in the message log. I’d also like to point out that I don’t remember having to hammer the spacebar to get through all the repetitive text… I do remember just having to hammer the directional key. I figured that the debug code was resetting the key state every time it had to display something.

Ran into something similar, only without the “r: yadayada” in the message log. [still 0.A-2006]

This time, the character was returning from a looting mission when an NPC and a zombie started duking it out south of the character’s position.

The DEBUG message this time was “DEBUG: npc::wield_best_melee failed to find a melee weapon. Press spacebar…”

The NPC in question was wielding a bullwhip. He was carrying the following : pair of boots, torn jeans, polo shirt, wool poncho, bandana, lighter aspirin, RAM, match trigger, electronic cigarette.

OK, that’s because the bullwhip is classed as a ranged weapon. This is likely an Random NPC issue, ans as we’ve said countless times, Random NPCs are still buggy.

I had the same error as in the OP, several times.
I believe all of those were random NPCs.
IIRC, it was always about some action not used, as above.

Haven’t complained yet, as I can simply turn off the debug messages and let their head explode. :smiley:
