Abstract

General note: If you are working with a computer program, always keep Murphy’s Law in mind: Anything that can go wrong will go wrong. It is a well known fact that computer programs have the bad habit of being able to crash. You never know when it happens, so the best approach is to be always ready for it. Save your work after each step. Make backup copies frequently. There are only a few things in this world that are more frightening than the rage of somebody who has been working with a computer program for hours without saving after the whole computer crashes.

I received a message in Metasonic Flow but can’t see the parameters!

Check the internal behavior of the affected subject in the Metasonic Suite. Make sure that it has the right readable parameters set.

I can’t upload my process in the Modelmanager! It says there is an error!

Check your process in the Metasonic Suite. Make sure that every subject has a start state and is assigned a role (this also applies to external subjects). Make sure that only one subject begins with a function state – all other subjects have to start with receive states.

I can’t save my process anymore – I get a nullpointer exception!

I’m afraid you will have to create a new process and model everything again. Life can be hard sometimes, deal with it.

I edited a parameter. Now the parameter exists twice. If I add the edited parameter, it is displayed twice.

You will have to delete all parameters and messages and create them again. Shit happens.
