Failed to place flag! ... but why

3 posts in this topic

I am setting up a server and i have an issue where i go to place my flag pole and im getting an error message "Failed to place flag! Invalid character in input. Please try again." ... 

now im testing this after i did my arma update yesterday. so i dont know if this is related to that. most likely not, but im stuck now and i dont know how to trouble shoot this. 

 

dont know if this helps but every time i try to construct the flag and fail, a new error in my rpt shows up but it doesnt really explain much

18:26:12 Error: Object(3 : 4) not found
18:26:17 Error: Object(3 : 5) not found
18:31:28 Error: Object(3 : 7) not found
18:31:55 Error: Object(3 : 8) not found

this is the script that seems to be spitting out the error to me it:

Spoiler

private["_display","_listBox","_territoryName","_selectedFlag","_alphabet","_forbiddenCharacter"];
_display = uiNameSpace getVariable ["RscExileSetupTerritoryDialog", displayNull];
_listBox = _display displayCtrl 4001;
_territoryName = ctrlText (_display displayCtrl 4000);
_selectedFlag = lbCurSel _listBox;
_selectedFlag = _listBox lbData _selectedFlag;
try
{
    if((count _territoryName) isEqualTo 0) then 
    {
        throw "Please enter a territory name.";
    };
    _territoryName = _territoryName call ExileClient_util_string_trim;
    _alphabet = getText (missionConfigFile >> "CfgClans" >> "clanNameAlphabet");
    _forbiddenCharacter = [_territoryName, _alphabet] call ExileClient_util_string_containsForbiddenCharacter;
    if !(_forbiddenCharacter isEqualTo -1) then 
    {
        throw "Invalid character in input. Please try again.";
    };
    ["Exile_Item_Flag",_selectedFlag,_territoryName] call ExileClient_construction_beginNewObject;
}
catch
{
    ["ErrorTitleAndText", ["Failed to place flag!", _exception]] call ExileClient_gui_toaster_addTemplateToast;
};
closeDialog 0;
true

 

and this is where it seems to be looking for valid characters:

Spoiler

class CfgClansF
{
    /*
        Defines the amount of pop tabs needed to register a new clan

        Default: 20,000
    */
    registrationFee = 20000;

    /*
        A list of all characters allowed in a clan *name*

        NOTE: 
    */
    clanNameAlphabet = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789 ._-!:\\/";

whats got me confused is that i'm using letters defined in the alphabet and still getting sent an invalid character error
