List of Fixes for Each Type of Error

Warning Message: No player was selected

This error means that the mission that caused the error doesn't have a unit marked as player. Probably most common in mp missions where all playables tend to be marked as playable instead of player. You can fix this error by simply adding/changing one of the playable units to player.

WARNING: Function 'name' - So-and-so is dead

Do not call name on a dead object. if (alive _obj) then {name _obj};
