With the introduction of Accurate Play Solo, we have two data models while running Play Solo: a Server and a Client.
Until now, the debugger could only attach to the server data model while emulating.
As of today, you can instead attach the debugger to the Client data model.
Go to File -> Setttings -> Studio -> Advanced, you will see a dropdown called “Attach Debugger To”. Select “Client”, close the settings dialog, and restart Studio.
Now the debugger will attach to the Client instead of the Server.
We are currently working on a solution where we have two simultaneous debuggers, one for Client and one for Server. But we decided to release this as an interim solution.
Hey, it’s my first AMA! I am so excited to talk with our fans about the Client Debugger! At last you can debug your Client-side code in Accurate Play Solo! How cool is that!?!? Let’s get to your questions!
Q: “Why can’t I debug on both Server and Client at the same time? Why should I have to choose one or the other?” - GroovyTimesClamBake
Great question! Our debugger code was kind of beast to tame, and it made sense to do an either/or solution as a stepping stone towards the optimal solution, simultaneous Client/Server debugging. We hope to have that to you soon!
Q: “Um, what did I say that sounded like “tell me how hard your job is”? Cry me a river, man. Just get cracking and make things work like they should!!” - GroovyTimesClamBake
OK, wow, kinda rude… Next question?
Q: “Why are you acting like this is a big deal? Aren’t you just un-breaking something you broke when you released Accurate Play Solo?” - MissThang123
Q: “Also, who really uses the debugger anyway? Aren’t the usage numbers for debugger like abysmally low?” - MissThang123
Well, sure, they aren’t as high as they could be! That’s why I’ve been spending so much time trying to get the debugger whipped into shape so it will be a real asset to our develo…
Q: “They have a point, babe. Why spend so much time on a feature that isn’t that popular? It kind of reminds me of when you’re trying to fix the garbage disposal and I need you walk the dog: you seem to have focus issues.” - MrsCycloneUprising
Linda? Is that you? What are you doing here?
Q: “Do you have any good chicken recipes?” - HungryBoi2012
What does that have to do with Client Debugger?
Q: “You said it’s “Ask Me Anything”…” - HungryBoi2012
OK fine. Mix 2 tsp chili powder; 1/2 tsp each coriander, black pepper, and cumin; 1/4 tsp cinnamon; 1.5 tsp salt; 3 Tbs olive oil to make a paste. Pat on boneless skinless chicken thighs. Bake at 350 for ~45 min.
AMA IS OVER!!
