I get the below java error when I open any game in Stencyl 3.1 (b7918). Stencyl still seems to work OK, as far as I can tell. Anyone care to translate?

Unexpected problem on thread AWT-EventQueue-0: multiple points

Games made with 3.2 or converted to the 3.2 format cannot be opened in 3.1.

Since we cannot change anything in an old build, this error message can't be improved for 3.1. But in the future, when a 3.3 game is opened in 3.2 (assuming the game format changes again) it will show a better error message.

Is it really rhe same one, saying "NumberFormatException: multiple points"? Please post your logs (Debug -> Logs -> Generate Logs).

issue went away when i re-upgraded to a newer 3.2.

 problem now is that admob doesnt work well on the new 3.2 as well as it did in the old 3.2 (which is why i reinstalled the older version) i'll be looking around the forum for solutions to this.

i would greatly appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction  for the admob problem.

thanks again buddy

I don't know much about admob. What is not working well?

You can also look in the admob forum section: http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/board,131.0.html
If your fails to compile, you can look there for someone with the same problem, or make a thread.
