sunset 4/5

Probably a completely dumb question from a newbie, however here goes!

I've managed to get CHDK loaded into my SX220HS and I'm trying to have a go at a timelapse video (like Loreastro has on Youtube) using Sunset 4 but I have not been able to get it to run this script.

There doesn't seem to be any way to enter the number of shots in the you want in the sequence.
SO I just get 'STARTED-FINISHED' and an error code
uBasic 1 Unk stmt 38

I'm sure I must be doing something dumb but what!!!

I have been able to get other scripts running successfully so what am I missing here?

Any suggestions much appreciated.

The two main causes of this sort of problem that people encounter are :
1) Failure to create a simple UTF-8 text file - usually because they use a word processor to cut & paste code rather than something simple like Notepad.
2) Saving a script written in the Lua language (one of two scripting languages supported by CHDK) with the extension .lua   CHDK assumed its a uBASIC script if you do that. 

As you have been able to load and run other scripts,  I'm guessing your problem is the second one.

Also, when asking questions about scripts, its usually best to either attach the script in question to your post or post a link to exactly where you found the script.  There are thousands of scripts out there - many with the same file name.  If you feel like you must cut & paste the script inline,  please use the # fomatting function on this forum's editor toolbar (above) to contain the code.
