You only get script compilation errors when you set the script not every time a message passes through an object that has an uncompiled script. If we had the latter it might make it very hard to fix some issues. Additionally the engine will load a stack file that has uncompilable scripts silently. At some point it might be helpful to get a list of issues popping up at which point my solution won’t be a good idea so I would switch to dynamically switching behaviors depending on the version.
