Magenta And Vars.

Post by aaronfeld »

First I know what magenta>color does but I sort of want to know why it's called magenta, seems sort of random. Second is this what a varibale is in WML. You name the var something and then you can store a number in it which can be linked to other events so you must kill 32 orcs and then this text comes up. If it is like that could you tell me how to call it but if it's not don't even bother to tell me how to do it yet, but could you give me a basic idea of what it is.

This is less importent but does this matter or what is it.

Code: Select all

    [about]
        title = _ "Campaign Design"
        [entry]
            name = "esci"
        [/entry]
    [/about]
    [about]
        title = _ "Campaign Maintenance"
        [entry]
            name = "Lari Nieminen (zookeeper)"
        [/entry]
        [entry]
            name = "Thomas Baumhauer (Baufo)"
        [/entry]
    [/about]
    [about]
        title = _ "Artwork and Graphics Design"
        [entry]
            name = "Syn_Err"
            comment = "story images"
        [/entry]
        [entry]
            name = "John Mercer (Stern)"
            comment = "Giant Rat graphics"
        [/entry]
        [entry]
            name= "theycallmerooster"
            comment = "portraits"
        [/entry]
    [/about]

Do I leave the "useful WML" alone for now and was I right with the Vars?

Thanks

VariablesWML in the wiki describes variables, arrays and containers, and how to use them.

Those are the campaign credits used after the The End screen, and in the Help » About section. The syntax is described in the CampaignWML reference.

EDIT: oh, and in case English isn't your first language and aren't familiarized with the color, this is what magenta is. Since our default team color key palette is composed of many values similar to magenta (#FF00FF)...

EDIT2: I also wrapped your WML snippet above in

 bbCode tags so your post doesn't look that messy. Please try to do this with all your future code samples in the future. :)
