The full quote goes:
This effectively hangs the program and it ceases to respond - as if it has gone into an infinite loop upon the failure of "InsertLine."InsertLine failed. Maybe model not accurate enough?
Here are some ways to easily get an InsertLine failure:
- Extremely complex models.
- Models which involve very small angles or angles very near π. I believe Stella uses numerical approximation, and trigonometric approximation becomes problematic especially near, but not at these "critical" angles. I believe π/2 is another critical angle.
- High prisms and antiprisms (these have bases of many-sided polygons). In fact, InsertLine fails for antiprisms whose polygons have 100 or more sides when you view the faces.
An InsertLine failure can be particularly problematic. The only way to deal with it is to force close the program.
