Module string output odd behaviour

Postby Dozius on Sun Nov 13, 2011 9:30 pm

Did a quick search and didn't see this anywhere.

I was making a colour to string module when I encountered this behaviour. You can see from the screenshot that the string when connected to a string primitive is correct and any colour module put after the primitive obtains the correct colour. However any colour module attached directly to the string output shows up as pure white. Surely this is not intended behaviour.

I agree; seems that the String-input-concoct works, but somehow is not perfect for the Color.
Another bug: replacing the String primitive with a String Sample & Hold makes all 0.
Need help? First search the forum & WiKi, then post in the help forum with a clear topic, request, & OSM. Then please WiKi the correct solution. If you want my personal assistance, I charge by the hour or for an exchange of services.

This isn't the only situation where the string box is needed in between - I've had to use a similar workaround before when setting edit boxes, and sometimes when using a CSV string to set array contents.
Feel free to use any schematics and algorithms I post on the forum in your own designs - a credit is appreciated (but not a requirement).
Don't stagnate, mutate to create. Without randomness and serendipity the earth would be just another barren rock.
