Hi There, I am in the process of creating a game based around the board game Diplomacy.
anyway, I keep getting the following errors, and I have no idea of how to solve it.

AlliedConflict error LNK2022: metadata operation failed (80131187) : Inconsistent method declarations in duplicated types (types: frmGameScreen; methods: Country1_Clicked): (0x06000013).

Any advise or help you could give would be greatly appreciated :)

Documentation is a good thing.

Thanks, I agree, documentation is a good thing, if it helps. :( I have looked at this documentation already, and found that I couldn't understand it, and it was not relevant to what I was wanting. (thus this post). The error is a LNK2022 error with a further code of 80131187, and I can not find any info on the further code.

I was hopeing that someone may have come across this error before and know how to solve it, or to be able to look through my code and possibly see what I have done wrong :)

Thank you.

>and found that I couldn't understand it, and it was not relevant to what I was wanting.
If you couldn't understand it, how do you know it's not relevant to your problem? It sounds to me like you aren't willing to go through the steps of research to find your solution, so you posted here hoping to get spoonfed. All I have to say about that is go do your own research. Here's another resource just because I'm a nice person:

http://groups-beta.google.com/groups?q=LNK2022

Seeing as no one here could help me, I started the project again. I struck the problem again, but noticed when it happend.

Incase anyone else ever gets this problem I thought I would share what I have learnt. It has something to do with changing the name of an object or something. Anyway, to try to solve it, delete the whole debug folder for application and then Re-Build the project. This should slove the problem :)

Thanx for posting that. I was having trouble with this error too, and that solved it.:cheesy:
