Hello Stencyl people!

I'm trying to code a game that spawns actors from a list randomly at set positions without repeating and I'm getting Error 1009.

I've looked over the other posts that deal with this, but I can't seem to come up with a reason why I'd be getting this. My best guess is that it's how I'm managing my list, but I'm stuck.

I've attached a screenshot of the code.

TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.

This is unlikely to be a Stencyl bug and should be posted in the forums instead.
