NPC Creation

Post by *Edwards » Tue May 27, 2008 2:27 pm

Of course, I hope few of you will enjoy this command. It gives the power to create NPC directly in-game via a nice display of text entries, arrows and touch button ;)

Warning: the command itself is not packaged, you will have to edit your own properties for your NPCs so it will fit with YOUR reality and you will have to set your "spaces" between the options.

Well, afterall it works, it's really basic and completely useless if you are alone on your shard.

I would rate this command 4/10.

Edited: The requirments are the gumppackage that you will find with distro097

Thanks, I will have to modify it so you can select the option via menu for most of the options given... Well something that could be truly done all via in-game. To be updated ^^

I dont know what the shit I'm doing...

I'm geting an error while compiling.

Code: Select all

Compiling: c:/POL/Distro/pkg/commands/gm/NPCCreation.src
Unable to read include file 'c:\POL\Distro\pkg\commands\gm\include/yesNo.inc'
Compilation failed.
Execution aborted due to: Error compiling file
It says that it cant read the file "yesNo.inc"

What I did wrong?

PS: Note that I'm a real newbie

EDIT: I'm using pol 097

Pol says that it can't find the yesNo.inc include file.
There could be several reasons depending on your used system (linux or windows).

The first reason maybe that there is no yesNo.inc file in the directory
c:\POL\Distro\pkg\commands\gm\include/

Another reason if you use e.g. linux could be the spelling of the file. With linux it has to be named yesNo.inc (not yesno.inc or YesNo.inc .....)

For that file i suggest (if you have it) to put it into pkg/scripts/include/ and name it yesno.inc.
And change the include line inside the script to
include "include/yesno";

In that case you'll never have a windows/linux compile error again. If you use both.
Surely you have to do this to all scripts that call yesno.inc :D

i think it worked now, but maybe with some bugs.

I copyed the file "yesno.inc" and the "packets.inc" to the same directory of "npccreation.src" and changed the include to:

Code: Select all

include "packets";
include "yesno";
I couldn't find the "security.inc" anywhere so I simple erased the code that used one of it's functions and erased it's include.
Other error I got was with the http part, so I simply erased this part too =D

I think it's working now, but it could have a better explanation of each parameter, cause I'm a little lost.

it didn't find them because in order to find them in pol/scripts/include, you need to make it

Code: Select all

include "include/packets";
include "include/yesno";

Hi
I know this is an old post but should this script work on POL 99?

I have POL 099 with the full distro and get the following error when trying to compile;


C:\POL server\scripts>ecompile
EScript Compiler v1.12
Copyright (C) 1993-2009 Eric N. Swanson

you should add consts in your scripts/modules/uo.em

Code: Select all

const SHARD_IP					:= 1.1.1.1; // your ip here
const SHARD_WWWPORT				:= 1; // your port here

Thanks for that RusseL, seems to have cleared that error but now I have a new one after I added those const's to scripts/modules/uo.em and now find the following error when trying to compile;

Compiling: C:/POL server/pkg/commands/admin/NPCCreation.src
Exception Detected:
Expected an identifier to follow the member (.) operator.
Compilation failed.
Execution aborted due to: Error compiling file

Thanks
PS Im a techie but not a coder (though I'm learning quick!) so apologies if this seems a bit simple!

shouldn't it be "1.1.1.1" instead of just 1.1.1.1?

It's probably not a good idea to add things to the *.em files. It's better to add constant definitions to an include file that you can include where needed. The *.em files are files generated when the Core is compiled. You most likely won't cause any problems by modifying the *.em files but every time you update POL to a new version you will have to remember to add the changes into the *.em files for the updated Core.

Its true that it makes life easier to add stuff like that into .em files but if/when the .em files changes you have to modify them manually.
We could add a custom.em without any hardcoded constants or core functions to be a file to use instead of includes

I explained why in my post. As I said, you probably won't cause any problems but as I said and Tomi repeated, every time the Core gets updated you have to re-enter your changes to whatever *.em files you have modified. If you don't mind that issue then there's no problem.

Tomi, I am curious. Why do the devs have to provide a custom.em file? Can't we just create one in the \modules directory and add stuff to it or will POL complain about an unknown *.em file being present?
Sincerely,
Yukiko

I know its still a bit of an old topic. Hopefully you haven't bothered doing anything to this effect yet. That's what something like

Code: Select all

include "include/constants";
is for...

Right CWO. I haven't looked at the POL 0.99 "Distro" closely so I can't speak for it but the older Distros had a file named "client.inc" which contained constant definitions for such things as sounds, animations etc. Some of us have created our own custom include files such as your "constants.inc" for just such a purpose. I suppose one could just create a "constants.em" file if they wanted to but that breaks the consitency of the POL file system hierarchy.

Anyway, always good to hear your take on things CWO. You've certainly helped me pull my bacon out of the fire a few times.

Yukiko
