Have you run into any of these issues with "Save the Humans"? You might just have a straightforward typo. Here are a few problems that other readers had, and how they solved them:

I'll keep this post up to date if we run across more typos or problems that people had.

I am having issues with; page 22 chap 1 of the book. When I click edit text (after right clicking) the property window does not come up?

Any help please? I know its a simple case of finding a particular window, but I cannot see it any where.

Hi I also have problems with chapter one. Please help as the code for chapter one isnt available.
page 40 bottom.

Find the enemyTimer_Tick() method that the IDE added for
you and replace its contents with this:
void enemyTimer(object sender, object e)


this will over write
progressBar.Value += 1;
if (progressBar.Value >= progressBar.Maximum)

is this a mistake?

Has anyone seen this issue: "An exception of type 'System.NotImplementedException' occurred in save the humans.exe but was not handle in user code. Additional information: the method or operation is not implemented. If there is a handler for this exception, the program may be safely continued.


I have yet to find a fix for this. Even when removing the last line of code, the message still appears.
