animation engine on livecode 10 error

Post by rjd » Fri Jun 24, 2022 3:17 pm

Anyone else encounter an error trying to use AE6 on Livecode ver 10? I get an error saying that it requires Livecode engine 5 and above. Any fix?

Hi rjd,

since AE 6 is public domain, this is easy to fix.
1. Open the stack
2. Open the stackscript
3. Look for the handler -> on librarystack
4. Comment these lines out:

Code: Select all

on libraryStack
   if the short name of the target is not the short name of me then pass librarystack
   # if "dev" is in the environment and the version<5 then
   #   answer "Sorry, this version of animationEngine requires a Livecode 5.0 or higher engine."
   #  stop using me
   #   exit librarystack
   # end if
   aeResetFrameRate
end libraryStack
5. Close the script and save the stack
DONE!

Hi rjd,

since AE 6 is public domain
Is it? I thought Malte dual-licensed it according to the version of LiveCode (commercial or community).
Is v 6 totally open source? And under what license terms?
Am I just confusing with v 5?

That's handy, I never had any notification of the change.
Disconcertingly ot still reads "animationEngine is a dual licensed animation library for liveCode" at the very top of that page.
