Problem[edit]

 Even though category has changed in the player info, it always returns the default values in tick.

Description from IRC[edit]

in the "tick" function of LastSummonerStanding

I can't get it to see the actual CurrentCategory

or creature

at every point before that, if I put in a "My current value is" message, it seems to work fine

and it works fine in the HUD

which is very simplistic at this point

Reason summon is in Tick[edit]

Before it was in one of the above classes. The creatures would summon (and the right ones), but they were local copies that couldn't be seen across the network. Also, if the summoner walked through them, then they exploded. Which was funny, but not the desired effect.

Notes[edit]

Making the functions in the game info class simulated or not, doesn't seem to make a difference.

I don't think they should be at that point. I've tried making all functions above simulated, or not simulated, to no effect.
