        So, I've run into an issue when working on my project. I believe this is the right place to post it, so here goes.
        How I produced the error:
        When I go to one of my maps, called "Development Map A", there's a side of the map that, if I walk into, will produce the error code as shown below. I have a video provided in case my explanation wasn't sufficient enough.

        OK
        ---------------------------

        Hopefully somebody knows how to help, as it is mildly impeding progress.

          Interesting. I don't think there has ever been a script that does the lottery, but it seems no one until now has ever bothered to try it. The script will need to be written from scratch, which is possible but not a priority for me at the moment.

          I don't get that error, so I can't help.

          It's something to do with shadows, and something to do with missing priorities. I can't say anything more without being able to reproduce the bug. Have you tried remaking your map, to see if the problem just goes away?

            Might as well post this here. A couple of bugs that are mainly just cosmetic, but shouldn't be to hard to fix. They have been in essentials for as long as I can remember.

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdWn2AYohTM

            I don't know about the first bug, but the bump sounds should be as easy a fix as adding a pbWait(10) to the collision events, which are in Game_Player if memory serves.

            A missing graphic is what normally causes this error... For me at least. Does the Pokémon you're editing have the proper front and back sprites?

              I keep getting this error when I run playtest through rpg maker.

              When i run it through the 'game' application in the DS Essentials folder, it works fine.
              I gather it's something to do with compiling data, but I'm hopeless at this sort of thing.
              What can I do to fix it?

                I went to the script editor

                line 3382 from "SpriteWindow"
                Spoiler:
                if @index < 0

                      The NPC in the North Gate on the right hand side will often cause the game to crash or simply stop (because she can't run her route) depending on which direction you talk to her from. And depending on what choices you make in the following text boxes after you are transferred, it can cause the game to crash. This is in the Dec 24th version of Essentials (but I think I can remember it happening in past versions as well)

                          Yep just downloaded it and checked. It remains unchanged. You talk to her from above and she goes nowhere (and so does the entire game). You talk to her from the other sides and after walking around a bit, she transports you to one of the battle facilities and they ask you if you want to go on or not. If you chose anything, the game stops and gives you the error message. I think, but I'm no expert, that since you are likely to be at battle 0 (meaning you haven't started up a battle tower challenge) and that is undefined.

                            Sorry to bump, but does anyone know what might be the solution to my error posted a little while back?
                            It's making testing new things impossible at the moment.

                              It's making testing new things impossible at the moment.
                              The only thing I can really say is that for one your using Essentials DS, which is, as far as I know, extremely outdated and buggy. I'm familiar with that bug in Essentials DS but don't know how to fix it(Since I never tried).

                                I'm not sure if this is a bug or what, but in the December 24th version of Essentials, whenever I obtain the "Pokedex", it never shows up on the Pause menu. I'm not sure why it's doing this. Would anybody happen to know why? Before anybody asks, no, I haven't tested it on the latest version. I haven't quite felt like updating my version of Essentials just yet - I'm waiting till I finish what I'm doing first before I move it all over.

                                  This is fixed in the newest release.

                                      This is about the tenth time I've said this: Start a new game. Saves from older versions WILL bug.

                                      Also, I have a bug to report: If you do a Battle Palace challenge and retire, you do not get any of the Pokémon that were in your party but not in the challenge back. I haven't tested it yet, but I believe this happens with all of the battle frontier games in essentials, and I also believe you still lose the Pokémon if you play the whole way through.

                                          It has been discussed before, but I thought it was worth putting in this thread so we have some documentation of it:

                                          Battle Tower doesn't return your pokemon.

                                          Getting a slight bug with recent releases of Essentials. If I ever use fogs, they jump around when I walk around the map from time to time, and before this was never an issue. Perhaps something has changed or am I missing something?

                                            The only thing I changed regarding fogs was in version 4 when I fixed the tiling problem with scrolling fogs. I don't think that would be a problem, though, based on what I actually did.

                                            Did you do anything in the release before it? As I think that is when I began encountering it. Try setting a fog up above any map, walk around and see if you're getting the same issue. I'm gonna look into it a little more.

                                              I'll add that the same happens to me, but it's only in certain parts of the maps, somehow. It also disappeared after I removed the connections to said map.
