Extensions not working at all

I am trying to get the Dialog Extension to work, as dialog trees are pretty essential to my game. Unfortunately, I seem to be unable to use any extensions at all. I have installed them correctly, as far as I can tell: for the dialog extension, the .jar files are in the engine-extensions folder along with the "Dialog" folder that has all the code. I can go to the Extensions Manager under Game Settings and activate the extensions, but even after I close and restart the game, no extensions appear at all on the left-hand side of my game Dashboard. The "Extensions" heading is there, but it is empty and there is no dropdown.

Also, I imported the sample game for the dialog extension, and when I try to test it, I get an error message. The logs for that error are attached. I do not think the problem is with the Dialog Extension itself because no extensions, not even the build-ins, are working--they all have the same problem where I activate them, but then don't get access to them in the game.

I am using 3.4 (Beta 2) of Stencyl on a Mac with OS 10.10. Please help!

According to the log, your extensions folder is empty. (This is different from the engine-extensions folder.)

Code: [Select]
stencyl.sw.util.FileHelper: Matching (non-hidden) files within /Users/mebling/stencylworks/extensions: []
Don't try installing anything by hand. Use my extension repository to install extensions more easily.

Thanks! I got the extension to work using your repository method, but now it is very buggy.  At first, any game with the Dialog Extension enabled posted an error message when I opened it about how the "Engine-Extensions" folder did not have  a "Dialog" folder in it. That message stopped showing up after I restarted Stencyl again, however. Instead, I am unable to select anything in the Data Structures for the Dialog Extension, neither in the Sample Game nor any of my games. When I click on an element in the Data Structures menu or the Structure Editor, I get an "Oops" message. I have attached my logs from that error.

I really like what the Dialog Extension does and how straightforward it seems to be; that functionality will really be the linchpin holding my game together, so I want to get it up and running as soon as I can. Thanks for your help!

I am having this same issue and made a post in the Dialog Extension Forum: http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,47585.0.html
He is looking further into the issue.
