Hi Otto,
Are you on Linux or OS X? Which version?

The VM version you have is fine. 4.5 is the version of the Self sources.

How are you running it? On the command line or through the Self Control gui?

Btw, the forum is just an archive for this mailing list. I’ll fix the link - there is also an archive at:

Cheers, Russell

I cloned http://github.com/russellallen/self <http://github.com/russellallen/self> and tried to run the worldBuilder.self in the cloned tree. (VM# 'self/objects/worldBuilder.self' _RunScript). It's a bit hard for me to read the stack that the VM spews out, but it appears as if my setup is not correct. If you think it's useful, I'll send it.
