Unity Unity3d glitch?

So I've been writing a program in Unity3d in JavaScript, and for some reason, on one particular if statement, it executes some of the code, despite the fact that it should not execute that code. I have tried to look for every possible reason that could cause this, but I know for certain that nothing in the program is causing certain statements to change. Is it possible that Unity3d has some internal error? If so, can it be corrected? Thanks for any help!

Post your code, but no I'm pretty sure Unity can handle if statements just fine.

This is the code that has issues:


if (responses[theBest]>winningResponse){


The program always executes the first statement in the if, but executes the second statement when its supposed to. Edited by kryotech

The code above is used to update an array (the winning input weights) after the best set of weights for a neural net have been found. After the winning weights have been updated, 3 more random weight sets are created with the winning weights as a starting point. I have monitored how many times the if statement has been executed, and done a print(winningResponse) type thing in Unity3d to see what is changing and what is not. The winningResponse only changed when the if statement is called. The winningWeights, however, change regardless, which should not happen.

Could it be that the fact that I'm trying to set an entire array equal to another array is messing with the program? Edited by kryotech

I doubt that the error is in the code piece above. Could you provide the code for the entire function? with types on all the variables please.

If you are using == between two arrays, it'll compare by reference. If you want to see if the elements in the arrays are equal you need to compare them one at a time.

If you are using == between two arrays, it'll compare by reference. If you want to see if the elements in the arrays are equal you need to compare them one at a time.

On a similar note, if you are using = (assignment) you are assigning a reference, not a creating a copy.

So doing LeftArray = RightArray does not copy the contents of RightArray to LeftArray, it simply makes them both point at the same thing, so you will not be able to change their elements independently. Edited by Sandman

      FES Retro Game Framework is now available on the Unity Asset Store for your kind consideration!
      FES was born when I set out to start a retro pixel game project. I was looking around for an engine to try next. I tried a number of things, from GameMaker, to Fantasy Consoles, to MonoGame and Godot and then ended up back at Unity. Unity is just unbeatable in it's cross-platform support, and ease of deployment, but it sure as heck gets in the way of proper retro pixel games!
      So I poured over the Unity pipeline and found the lowest levels I could tie into and bring up a new retro game engine inside of Unity, but with a completely different source-code-only, classic game-loop retro blitting and bleeping API. Months of polishing and tweaking later I ended up with FES.
      Some FES features:
      Pixel perfect rendering RGB and Indexed color mode, with palette swapping support Primitive shape rendering, lines, rectangles, ellipses, pixels Multi-layered tilemaps with TMX file support Offscreen rendering Text rendering, with text alignment, overflow settings, and custom pixel font support Clipping Sound and Music APIs Simplified Input handling Wide pixel support (think Atari 2600) Post processing and transition effects, such as scanlines, screen wipes, screen shake, fade, pixelate and more Deploy to all Unity supported platforms I've put in lots of hours into a very detail documentation, you can flip through it here to get an better glimpse at the features and general overview: http://www.pixeltrollgames.com/fes/docs/index.html
      FES is carefully designed and well optimized (see live stress test demo below). Internally it uses batching, it chunks tilemaps, is careful about memory allocations, and tries to be smart about any heavy operations.
      Please have a quick look at the screenshots and live demos below and let me know what you think! I'd love to hear some opinions, feedback and questions!
      I hope I've tickled your retro feels!
