Colour Picker Broken

The colour picker seems to be broken. I can't change any of the colours, on new or existing palettes. New palletes are entirely white. I tried restarting my computer entirely and it's still broken.

2 error codes:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'setColor' of null at changeColorPickerIndex (editor.js:2226) at HTMLInputElement.onclick (index.html:682)
editor.js:2225 Array(3)
editor.js:2226 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'setColor' of null at changeColorPickerIndex (editor.js:2226) at HTMLInputElement.onclick (index.html:682)

I'm having the same problem- I use firefox if that helps at all?

I had this problem, too. In my case I had at some point deleted the original room and I think something in bitsy's initialization was trying to select room 0. I fixed it by copying the game data into a text editor and made one of the rooms index 0, made sure the exits pointed to 0 instead of what it used to be and update the sprite positions. Then  copied the game data back into the editor. It might be easier to make a new room and set that one to be ROOM 0 if you have a lot of exits and sprites in there. You can probably also copy the game data, hit "reset game data", reload the page, and then paste your game data back in since this happens when the page gets loaded.

Oh wow, that worked like a charm for me! Thanks!
