WriteConsole help!
« on: September 12, 2009, 08:53:37 am »
OK, I'm wondering basically how do you make a script like this. I'm really frustrated and please help.

If you type /fjoin x, it'll say x has joined the game? (The color doesn't matter).

Code: [Select]
function OnPlayerCommand(ID: byte; Text: string): boolean;
begin
  if GetPiece(text,' ',0) = '/fjoin' then WriteConsole(0,GetPiece(text,' ',1) + ' has joined the game', $AA4444);
end;

Thanks. Can I ask something, I don't get the GetPiece(Text,' ',1) or the GetPiece(Text,' ',0). What does it mean by 1 or 0.

GetPiece basically splits the string up into sections and then returns one of those sections. The first parameter of GetPiece is the string. The second is what to split it by, and the third is which part of it to return.

So if your string is "hi there what's up" then GetPiece(string, ' ', 0) would return "hi", 1 would return "there", etc.

Does the splitting only use spaces, or does all whitespace count?

Ok, I should have read it a little more closely.

Just a thought to keep in mind. Arrays, lists, etc., in practically all languages are zero-index based. That means the first element will be at index '0', not '1'.

In pascal you can specify the range of array:
Code: [Select]
var
 omgarray: array[46..777] of boolean;

But if you mean GetPiece then yes, first element will be 0.
