Hmm.. is there an example for making MMF do things by following a script I wrote outside the program? Say I have a text file that says
display text1 "hello"

and in MMF, the string text called text1 is changed to "hello".

I know it's possible, but what's the best way of doing it?

use string parser. friend did this with a game once in tgf. prograbots. he is no longer with us
he's not dead or nothin he just doesnt click no more

http://create-games.com/download.asp?id=5397

oh yea he gave me the open source to the game once. not sure if the download is. and he taught me how to do it. if i ever get ahold of him maybe i can get him to gimme the source and ill make a general example.

It's much easier to use a lua object, then you can do:

function hello()
display("text1","hello");
end

Etc. I find this really far more flexible, since I can actually do math in the script e.g: display("hello",STR1 .. STR2); or setx("object",20+VAR);

If you want a less efficient way you could use a list object and just use string parser :\.

What I was doing couldn't use the Lua object, I forgot why, it was on my to-do list last November

cecil:
Sure, if possible, I'd like to have the source. I'll even give you and him some credit if I modify it and make something better out of it. What's his name/nick?

I find it hard to fathom what, I mean Lua is a programming language it should cater to just about every need?

But if your hearts set on not using it, meh.

his tdc is "JasonDudie"

hmm. i only have his aol screenname. which he is rarely on. "Areallycoolguy14"

we used to do a lot of click stuff together. then he got a job

if you know anything about parsing then it shouldnt be that hard to figure out. i beleive he used a fastloop to loop through a text file with the "programming code" in it. when it parsed a specific term it would then parse the folowing information in a certain way until the end of line delimeter was reached. so something parsed like "color" would go on to parse the next word after which would be the specific color.

so something like

:color green:

would be a line of code that returns green as the color value.

it can become as complex as you want it to, at the expense of numerous events to handle all the parsing.

i have a few ideas on how to make nameable variables using the list object and data store object. like when you initialize a named variabe you have to include its datastore object position, and then save it in the list object so whenever that variable is mentioned it will know where to look in the data store object to find out what is stored in that variable.

i am really interested in stuff like this but its a MAJOR task to take on and would be very time consuming.

i have too much on my hands solving my proffesors problems

my current assignment is on parsing tokens. its quite a fun topic

Use this object with custom MMF functions and the evaluate actions to make cool stuff.
You can create a simple programming language with it in a few seconds!

Ben, just wondering - does using LUA make it easier to use MMF? For example, does it avoid the need to spread value/fastloop for every object, or even if not, does it make that process any faster? Anything above 80 active object/fastloop events makes my computer complain :/

Nim - It runs loops about the same speed as MMF fastloops :\. Plus you're still gonna need to process the output on the MMF side, so it doesn't help too much with loops tbh. i.e. You're gonna have to spread values and just have a on function rather than an on loop.

for i=0,5 do
fastloopStuff("woot");
end

That kinda thing, I use Lua for my cutscene system in a little thing I started up. Works like a charm.

Does anyone have the source code for prograbots? I tried to email Areallycoolguy14 on aol, but an error occurs that he is not a member. Does anyone know how to contact him?
Thanks

im not sure if case matters for the aim email system. so it would be "areallycoolguy14" with the lowercase 'a'.
but as i said. he's never on. and no. other than him, i think im the only one who would have the source. and i had to beg for it . now i dont have it anymore.

Thanks Jason Dudie. Have you down loaded the source? I have fiber optic Internet with 2Mb per sec down load. I about fainted when the 12Mb source was down loading from SiteSled at 3.8kb a second with 1 hour and 7 minutes remaining on the download time. The down load rate was still dropping when I hit Cancel Down Load.

The file takes DrawLine extension. I don't think that ext has been converted to MMF2. The other option would be that I re-install TGF or MMF1.5. I was not able to convert the file to MMF2

This just came out, I've run the examples. It seems pretty cool:

This extension allows you to use VB.net or C# to program things in your MMF2 applications.

any chance of that supporting c++? now or in the future?

if not, maybe this is a good excuse to learn c# and buy mmf2

It needs the .NET framework though, which is a pain for anyone who doesn't have it to get (80mb...)

anyone who already scripts in C#, C, C++, VB, and Java should already have the .net framework with the latest versions of MSVisualStudio. which is by far a larger download than 80mb itself.

If anyone can download the 'prograbots.gam' and convert it to MMF2 it would be appreciated.
Thanks

well then that makes more sense. that is pretty pointless unless its a pretty damn good game, to add an extra 80 megs of download just to play it.

Hey guys. I currently have no time or plans to convert the source from that old gam to mmf. I think this other guys posts about the new extensions would work better.

As a sidenote I am planning to create a Prograbots sequel with primarily online gameplay. Woot!
