Re: [while] in [message] - executing commands ina string

No that's not possible. I was thinking about this the other day and thought up this, rather contrived, method: #!NOT TESTED [set_variable] name=numberOfOptions value=3 [/set_variable] [set_variable] name=i value=0 [/set_variable] [while] [variable] name=i less_than=$numberOfOptions [/variable] [do] ...

Re: 1v1 Replays! (THE ARCHIVE)

Elves vs Drakes, Hamlets. It was fun, but I think I didn't attack enough so that Gallifax had some fun too. This shows how to use 2 units as bait at a time. (And of course they're gonna die. And I only really meant to bait one unit at a time. The second one was accidental both times) But then I was ...

Re: Why not LUA?

Non-coders can be described as those whose first 'programming' language is WML, and also those who uses CampGen to create campaigns instead of writing their own WML.

Re: Please don't use swear words in game text

I don't mind most swear words, though I'd avoid them generally. But, to me, Tree-Shagger is a bad insult regardless. (As Dave said before... Its a euphemism). However, to those that says "No modern swear words but swear words that aren't swear words in our context are fine", I'd tend to disagree. By...

Re: Why not LUA?

All we really need is a quick way to set and test variables right? We don't want to implement LUA scripts in every child tag of [event]. Here is a quick and dirty solution I thought up, there might be flaws... but what do you think? #! A new type of variable [set_function_variable] name=myVar #! Her...

the 'move' event would sort-of do this when implemented, but until then you can (somewhat) work around it by: -put the location in a tunnel -put a 'unit' with ambushing ability in the tunnel, so people run into it and stop -put a moveto event in front of the unit MadMax: if you're just going to hav...

It maybe... Weird bugs tend to crop up when you use

Code: Select all

variablex[i]
instead of

Code: Select all

variable[i].x
Not sure about your case though.

I am almost done with a WML-editor though. It should be pretty good, though it is for Mac only. After I finish it I should be _able_ to churn out scenarios every week or so (though I could get lazy :)).
