Problem with Int.Parse

Posted 07 January 2013 - 11:22 PM

So, I'm building a video game with the Unity3D API, and the error code that it's throwing me seems to be universal to all of C# (meaning that it is not API-specific).

What I'm doing is having all of the highscores on my game be sent to a server, and then transmitting them back to the game. The exception reads as follows: "FormatException: Input string was not in the correct format."

It says it's coming from the line of code in which I utilize the Int.Parse function (one of which I have never used until now).

Here is the code:
	IEnumerator GetScores()
		//this.gameObject.guiText.text="Loading Scores";
        //gameObject.guiText.text = "Loading Scores";
		print ("Loading Scores");
        WWW hs_get = new WWW(highscoreURL);
        yield return hs_get;
		int index=0; // Index of my loop
		string sTemp=hs_get.text; // putting the highscore text into a string called sTemp
		string[] lines = Regex.Split(sTemp, " "); // Splitting it based on spaces - should probably be changed to | but fuck it i'll do that later
			foreach (string line in lines){
			int i;
			HighNumbers[index]=int.Parse(lines[index]); // putting the content of line (which was split based on spaces) into index of HighNumbers
			ScoresLoaded = true;

Some people on the Unity forums told me to try Int.TryParse, but I don't know exactly how that would be implemented specifically for this code.. I have seen some examples of TryParse, but nothing that I could actually figure out how to utilize for this script. So, they eventually told me to go to a c# specific forum, and since I've been coming here for years now, I figured this would be a great place to post. ^_^

All I'm asking for is a little guidance. A simple push in the right direction would more than suffice. Thank you!

Wow.. I've been stuck on this for 2 days now, and OF COURSE, I figure this out 30 minutes after I post on here..

int.TryParse(lines[index], out HighNumbers[index]);

The problem??

I wasn't deleting the "HighNumbers[index]=" when I would put tryParse... DURRP!
