Hi All,

So I released my don't starve OC 'Whyatt' as a mod earlier this year and I'm looking for someone to help me with fixing up the coding and his compatibility with the new updates.

I didn't code any of it, i had some help, but that person is no longer interested so I'm looking for another reliable programmer who I could possibly communicate with via Discord.

Here's my mod here:

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1655943117

Currently what I need fixed is (but not excluded to):

  • Whyatt needs to be compatible with the new tides update, as currently the game freezes when he steps on a boat.
  • I need to make the Saxophone item better, in that it's not based around the panflute (i have a custom sound built for it). Currently, any panflute you interact with turns into the saxophone and vice versa, which is annoying :/
  • The name templates are all broken since the Wortox update for some reason. On the select screen it says Random and in-game using the inspect function it defaults to Wilson for some reason.


These are the biggest issues I've found but I'll probably find more as I play him again. I'd also like to add him to single-player and add in a new quirk too but for now I just want him fixed ;w;. I'd really love to find someone who's a competent coder. I am able to pay through Paypal or via art commissions so you won't be leaving empty-handed in any case.

I can fix it.
It would help if you would have older game files.. The person who did your code simply copied the SGwilson.lua from that time instead of adding/changing stategraphs properly within modmain. And since the SGwilson.lua was updated from the devs, your character is using too old code now.
And it would help alot if I could compare the original SGwilson.lua from that date with your SGwhyatt.lua to see what changes exactly were made by the person (to distinguish his changes from the changes made by devs). I guess he only changed the panflute code, but I can not tell for sure.

I already fixed the stategraph stuff (assuming the person did only change the panflue stuff) and fixed the oneman band sanity code. So boat and most other bugs related to old code/game update are now fixed and it wont break in 99% of new game updates anymore.

Unfortunately I never did a character mod myself. So while I can help you with general code, I cant help much for character specific stuff, like the portraits.
So I have 0 knowledge about anything related to adding animations and sounds :D
I still could try to add your custom saxophone sound, at least if you know how to add the sound in general to the game, I can assign it to the saxophone play.

@AretMaware you still there?
I will upload the files I currently fixed, see limitations I wrote above.
Its the modmain and the sax and whyatt prefab file. You can remove the SGwhyatt file from your mod.

Hi there @Serpens, so sorry for the late reply, I don't get a chance to get on the forums very often ^^;

I can send you a GDrive link with all the files in it if that will help.

Even if you can't help with the character quirks, it'd be really great if I just got him fixed and working with the new updates!

And thankyou so much for going ahead with that! I do believe I do have some older files for his coding I'll just have to find it for you!

If you want to contact me on discord also (which will make it easier) please do tell me ^^

At best, test the fixed file I linked above, and report back ;) The update incompatibility should be fixed, same for the flute.
