ACE Options Table Errors

Hi, attempting to revive an old favorite addon of mine. The addon itself works and I've made a few tweaks already, as well as removing a few useless things.

I am looking for some clue as to where the issue may be as I am not really familiar with how to properly integrate ACE.

Any time I attempt to use any of the ACE integrations like slash commands and opening the options panel, it throws the following:

Code:
10x ...nfig-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0-60.lua:1803: AceConfigRegistry-3.0-15:ValidateOptionsTable(): DPSTime.description: unknown parameter
[C]:: ?
...-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0-15.lua:50: in function <...-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0.lua:45>
...-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0-15.lua:215: in function <...-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0.lua:196>
...-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0-15.lua:259: in function 'ValidateOptionsTable'
...-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0\AceConfigRegistry-3.0-15.lua:301: in function 'app'
...nfig-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0-60.lua:1803: in function 'Open'
...nfig-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0-60.lua:1896: in function <...nfig-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:1894>
(tail call): ?
[C]:: ?
[string "safecall Dispatcher[2]"]:9: in function <[string "safecall Dispatcher[2]"]:5>
(tail call): ?
Ace3\AceGUI-3.0\AceGUI-3.0-34.lua:314: in function 'Fire'
...GUI-3.0\widgets\AceGUIContainer-BlizOptionsGroup.lua:20: in function <...GUI-3.0\widgets\AceGUIContainer-BlizOptionsGroup.lua:19>
[C]:: in function 'Show'
FrameXML\InterfaceOptionsFrame.lua:28: in function 'InterfaceOptionsList_DisplayPanel'
FrameXML\InterfaceOptionsFrame.lua:46: in function 'InterfaceOptionsListButton_OnClick'
[string "*:OnClick"]:2: in function <[string "*:OnClick"]:1>

Are your Ace 3 libraries up to date? I ask because there have been improvements in Ace since 2012. There have also (obviously, I know) been many subtle changes to the API's over the last 4 years, so there's that also. You may have to re-write sections of the addon to go with the updates to the game API's.

I did try just swapping the library out for the newest versions. I also confirmed the addon settings work by changing them manually. I will have to hit the books on ACE options I suppose. Would you suggest a from scratch approach? That's what I am leaning towards.

I am not the best source on this, I freely admit. Where it says "Addon Author" under my avatar is a misnomer, I'm afraid. I wrote a few plug-ins for Button Facade, turned Masque, and Minimap Button Frame, but they apparently don't have a category for plug-in authors. So, I'm an "Addon Author". Which I guess is technically correct. Although, in my case, doing the Lua files was mostly "copy-n-paste", unfortunately.

So, I'd have to say that a "from scratch" approach would probably be for the best. What with the API changes in the last 3 1/2 years, and what not.

This is your issue.

Running the addon by default with an updated ace library works fine, including the options menu. Without seeing what you've changed/removed there's no way to see what has broken. The error you're receiving is basically saying that your options table is not in the correct format, however it's possible that something else is trying to reference a table option you've removed. You could try the link below as it goes through the correct format.
