Re: Campaign with lua

And I don't know (hence my question) if it's feasible to tweak the converter script so it deals with this matters or if the current version is as good as it gets and whatever errors still remain are to be fixed by hand. Hello? Is there still any interest in developing the lua branch? If yes, I see ...

Re: Campaign with lua

If you look at the lua code converted from VLO files, they use zero-indexed arrays (which are legal in lua, but not exactly encouraged or recommended) but at great cost to code readability. So we should probably change this. OK, I think I formulated it wrong. The problem in Alpha6 was that the SLO ...

Re: Limiting tech in skirmish

Limit the number of research facilities. If you manage to reach T3 from T1-nobases with just one RF per player... you have too much time :D

Re: Campaign with lua

Is anyone listening at all? Seems I'm the only one to post here in recent times. Anyway, I've fixed some things to make scripts better debuggable (whose idea was it to throw out the backtraces in event.lua? You effectively "swallow" all script errors) and found the direct cause for the script error ...

Re: Campaign with lua

Hm... somehow the strike team never gets assembled, although it's all there in the script. ...and now I know why. At least partially. Somehow, when the second team (i.e. the rocket-bugs) is about to be assembled, luaWZObj_checkgroup reaches the following line: 1760 luaL_error(L, "argument %d is not...

Re: Campaign with lua

- AI being apathetic in alpha 6 is definitely lua's fault; loading the start-of-mission-savegame in trunk starts an immediate attack. Hm... somehow the strike team never gets assembled, although it's all there in the script. Debugging with "break grpJoin if (psDroid->player==1)" shows suspiciously ...

Re: Help reducing warnings in source code

If you can see the serious warnings instantly between the 230 reported you might be much better than me. AFAIK, (nearly) all developers use gcc under Linux. There you have the option to turn certain sorts of warnings on and off via a compiler flag in the Makefile (as opposed to a pragma in the sour...

Re: Help reducing warnings in source code

if we apply this patch, it would ruin the revision history, make diffs / merges harder, and I am not sure we want that. Why is this? If you just apply it to svn as a normal bugfixing revision? I think compiler warnings, even if they only occur on some platforms, should be considered bugs and either...

Re: Campaign with lua

I suppose this hasn't anything to do with lua, probably it was a bug that was there when trunk was merged into lua and has been corrected since in trunk. I didn't manage to find that changeset, however. Found it. Ironically, it is the very changeset directly after trunk was merged into lua... EDIT:...

Perhaps the latter has something to do with me killing their sensor in alpha 2. Note to self: replay with letting it live.

Well, if it really were such a good idea, it would be strange if someone hadn't implemented it before ;) .

Re: 2.3 Beta 10 is released!

The only thing that I can think would increase the usability of artillery units would be an easier way to disconnect a unit from a sensor. Right now, every individual unit has to be clicked and moved. I can't think of any good suggestions without cluttering the UI right now, and either way, that wo...

Campaign with lua

This thread is for everyone replaying the campaign with the lua2 branch to test the lua scripts for the campaign and report any impressions and bugs. -in alpha 2 ("power surge") there was a New Paradigm sensor standing around at the SE corner (where NP would attack from in alpha 6). Is this supposed...
