Actually notepad++ has a nice feature that allow you to see list of the functions with one single letter. Just one letter, not even ctrl+c a/o ctrl+v.

How do you use / enable this feature?

RE: Easy Scripting Tool

I think that this is a great idea. The sample you made for spawning enemies is very helpful and would make scripting less intimidating for many people.

RE: Easy Scripting Tool

If you want to be limited, then go ahead, use the program. Ok, I admit it may be good for begginers, but they will be begginers for the rest of their lives if they use the program. I can script anything faster than using the tools buttons by the way, me and others.

Good luck btw Smile
Oh and btw DamnNoHtml just pm me if you need any ideas or anything Tongue I'd love to help yah out.

All this scripting is just premade functions and a pinch of C++. C++ can be hard sometimes, but to know it makes this even more easy. Tongue

You only need to know a handful of commands from C++. But I do have to say that having a program like that could be fun to mess around with.

@Nemesis567;

I agree completely. I mesmerized most of the functions in the wiki (accidently Tongue ) by just making so many scripts. XD

RE: Easy Scripting Tool

C++ is a lot more complicated than this kind of scripting. You have to care about classes, pointers and much more. This is a very simple in which you just use functions, nothing else.

RE: Easy Scripting Tool

Oh well, everyone is kind of being an elitist "I know how to code, I will have none of this for the lesser beings" dick so there's no point in putting effort into it.

RE: Easy Scripting Tool

You are being so rude while everyone else is stating their very own opinion. No one has to agree, if you want to do it, then do it, no one has to like it.

I meant something as simple as a For loop is something that isn't a function they can just stick in there somewhere. They need to actually know how to use it. Granted, you can Google that and find out in 5 seconds but its just an example that not everything is just cut and paste.

...what? I was trying to help people who don't know how to code, but everyone just shot me down. In what kind of bizzarro world does that make me rude?

It would take you more time to write a super high level tool, than just sit down and script.

I wasn't even making it for myself, I am very proficient in C++ and wouldn't even use my own program. Again, it was for people who have no idea how to code.
