Scripting help

Discussion in 'General Open/Public Discussion' started by Fox, 15 Oct 2001.

  1. I have created a script [much like PJ's SuperStats ironically] that logs the kills, deaths, etc, but unlike SuperStats it places the line of text in a seperate file, so for instance if JoeSchmoe was killed by Bioderm1 then it would send this to the file:

    JoeSchmoe was killed by Bioderm1

    The problem I have with this is not with creating the file, but with how Tribes 2 gives out the %msgString.

    Here is a link to the code:<a href="http://people.mw.mediaone.net/bcz/FoxLog.cs">Here</a>

    Here is an example of the problem:

    FoxLog.cs Generated File - Do Not Edit
     -CDL-Fox(V) helpfully jumps into his own disc's explosion.

    If anyone knows how to make sure that these 's don't show up, I would greatly appreciate any help I could get.

    Of course the above is not all I've done :)...I also created 3 actual programs that read from the file that the script creates, and/or read from custom deathmessages, shouldn't need any help with those though [I hope]

    You could post that in the scripting forum over at Tribal War too. PJ reads and responds to a lot of stuff over there. That and you can get help from all the other scripters that hang out over there.
  4. I actually posted the above message on PJ's own forum :)...I would hope he reads that!

    I think I've come up with a work-around already through one of the programs that I've written :D

    And if you haven't guessed yet, the eventual metamorphsis of these programs and scripts will be that we just might be able to get our in-game stats posted up on the web :)

    The rather ironic thing is that PJ has already done this [sort of] on his last Sunday update with his SuperStats...but whenever I try to run SuperStats on my comp it freezes T2 :(

    And besides, I wanted to try to see if I could do it myself :)

    Wow, I think that's my new record for using :) in my posts

  6. Oh yeah, before I forget:

    I just might release TWO new things in the next few days [or possibly even today]

    1. *New* CDL Voice Pack!
    2. *New* Fox's T2 to HTML Stat Creator!

    I have way too much time on my paws...er, hands that is :)
