[Help] Keeping same size after editing... FF Viewer problems?
Fixed: THANKS GUYS!!!
Hey guys, can someone help me out. I've been trying to edit a file in FF Viewer, and when I try to use the edited mod menu, I get a compile error. After searching and asking for help, people told me to make sure the sizes stay the same. And that's where I'm having issues now.
#1 Problem: How to keep the size the same?
~Whenever I try to add some stuff, I can't change the size.
#2 Problem: "Could not find file ...-extract.dat"
~I keep getting this whenever I start off with a fresh copy of a file. How do I make one of these, since I thought these were made automatically?
~Afterwards, it closes the file but when I open the file again, the changes
#3 Problem: "Error saving .FF Arithmetic operation resulted in an overflow"
~Doesn't let me save, when I reopen, changes aren't there.
~I'm guessing these mean that I have problems syntax-wise in my code, but even with my saving edits, I regularly get this.
#4: Problem: "Error opening fastfile: Index was outside the bounds of the array"
~Happens especially when I try to add dummy text/comments
Please help, I feel so close. Basically, this is a follow-up to my other help thread where I'm trying to get rid of the scrolling/unnatural text. I want to soon work on a script for prestige tokens infection [aka continue asking help for making one xD ]
Oh and two bonus questions:
1) How do the mod menu item numbers work? I know the first one is the order of the actual menu, but what about the second one?
2) If I want to add additional scripts, how would I keep the same size? By deleting junk from comments?
Man we should have a FAQ >.> Thanks a ton guys!

To keep the size the same go all the way to the bottom of the gsc. and add more letter to the big group of random letter or backspace some of the random letters as needed to make the new size the same as the original.

No matter how many things inside comments I delete, the size stays. Help?

All the way at the bottom there is text like this "//jhdfjfdkkdfsjkdjkgdlhlsjahsdjkskjkfhkhfkhsjjasjsdj sdjfs" if the gsc. is to small add to those letters, if it;s to big backspace some of the letters. If you get that error of reopening after you save it doesn't matter just reopen ff. viewer. It should have still saved, also what version of ff. viewer are you using?

I get what you're saying, each .gsc has to be the correct size for itself. I was just putting in stuff in vip.gsc, which I never edited.
How do I know how each individual size should be?
Wait, at the bottom of which? dd.gsc has that pretty much at the top, with different letters but around the same length.
Thanks for all the quick replies!
Edit: Version 2.16
I think it has a bug, because I added a single letter at one point, gave me problem. Added a instead of v, was alright. Then I added two letters, one by one. Eventually, it came back to one letter overboard. However, now I got 1414436 and I keep removing letters but still get that number (one above the original).
I've only just edited dd.gsc at this point, so who knows if I'll get errors later on in other .gsc's
Edit 2: What do you all official modders use? Also, is the file just coded so messily that it's doing this?

when you edited the menu you called a function that DNE or you misspelled a function call
