new problem:

http://pastebin.com/fjKxxADT

basically i have tried to add a cost increaser and dynamic cost for buy dex. See the pastebin for full details.

getting a type mismatch error

for those who have just gone through the pastebin:
DEC is constantly increasing and already goes past the limit for Byte but is perfect for Integer

same as DECC

so why is the compiler throwing me the error?

btw i am using my server to test new code, so my server is now offline until the problem is solved

any good pascal compilers out there i can use that are EASY to use? so that debugging will be simpler as i will be able to copy and paste code, and find out the errors that way?

DEC is an Integer, but you're trying to use it in a String. You have to use IntToStr on DEC to convert it from an Integer to a String to write it to console.

Code: (pascal) [Select]
WriteConsole(0,IdtoName(ID)+' has just bought bigger bangs for '+DEC+' Cash',$EE81FAA1);

//try this instead
WriteConsole(0,IdtoName(ID)+' has just bought bigger bangs for '+IntToStr(DEC)+' Cash',$EE81FAA1);

pascal compilers would choke on scriptcore code and bleed to death. Use this instead: http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=26011.msg305925#msg305925

getting an assignment expected error as soon as i added these parts of code, again its not pointing to any of these sections but once i comment them out it works, even the pascal IDE doesnt see what the problem is

no, Numplayers works fine

i was just missing the : next to the =

now its workng perfect, so Numplayers must work on both the beta and older versions if its working in my script

no no he really does mean HighestID. if you have 3 players in-game, ids are 1, 2, and 4 (since player # 3 left), i will become 1, 2, then 3.. thats it... player id 4 will never get accessed.
or just use 32 if ur not using that version of scripting core (too lazy to look through the topic :P)

Code: (pascal) [Select]
//  if Text = '/buy ally' then begin
    if Cash < 10000 then begin
        WriteConsole(0,IdtoName(ID)+' just tried to purchase an ally, not enough funds!',$EE81FAA1);
     end;
     if Cash >= 10000 then begin
         Cash :=Cash-10000;
         Command('/setteam1 '+inttostr(Botn));
         WriteConsole(0,IdtoName(ID)+' has just bought an ally for 10000 Cash',$EE81FAA1);
     end;
  end;

this section of code is giving me a type mismatch error, again not pointing to this section but once its commented out it compiles

Botn is a Byte, how to i convert byte to string?

From: April 12, 2010, 01:03:30 am
also for some reason this line type gives me a type mismatch error

i have 2 lines exactly like this

Code: (pascal) [Select]
Command('/maxrespawntime 20');

That might be the case, but when iterating through all players, it's not a particularly good idea to use NumPlayers, since it's possible to get players who have IDs that are higher than NumPlayers is, and so you never perform operations on them.

Take, for example, a full server. Then it diminishes to two people in slots 1 and 12 (so NumPlayers will be 2). Anything you try to do with a for loop using NumPlayers will only affect the first player; the second player has an ID greater than what NumPlayers has.

In 2.6.5, I'd recommend using 32 instead of NumPlayers, and in 2.7.0, since HighestID is implemented in the 2.7.0 ScriptCore, use HighestID over NumPlayers.

Just food for thought. :)

When you get an error, the reported line number that the ScriptCore gives you is a couple of lines ahead for whatever reason (really annoying). You'll have to post some of the code that precedes those two sections of code, just in case the error is actually occurring there.

but if the error isnt occuring when those lines are commented out then the script wouldnt even compile so how can that be? but anyways heres the code for those two lines

Code: (pascal) [Select]
if Text = '/deathexplode' then begin
      WriteConsole(0,'death explosions enabled', $00EE0000);
      //Command('/maxrespawntime 20');
      WriteLn('death explosions have been enabled by ' + IntToStr(ID) + '!');
      deathexp := True;
   end;

   if Text = '/nodeathexp' then begin
      WriteConsole(0,'death explosions disabled', $00EE0000);
      //Command('/maxrespawntime 2');
      WriteLn('death explosions have been disabled by ' + IntToStr(ID) + '!');
      deathexp := False;
   end;

please answer my question

how do i convert a byte to string

and why is this code giving me a type mismatch error?

Code: (pascal) [Select]
  if Text = '/buy ally' then begin
    if Cash < 10000 then begin
        WriteConsole(0,IdtoName(ID)+' just tried to purchase an ally, not enough funds!',$EE81FAA1);
     end;
     if Cash >= 10000 then begin
         Cash :=Cash-10000;
         Command('/setteam1 '+inttostr(Botn));
         WriteConsole(0,IdtoName(ID)+' has just bought an ally for 10000 Cash',$EE81FAA1);
     end;
  end;

Botn is a byte, i am trying to convert it to string but cannot find any syntax that allows it

i mean inttostr is on neither of these sites, so whats the best place to get ALL the syntax for soldat?
these are the sites i have, not even the syntax for Copy is there:

omg type conversion ;_;
inttostr to convert byte, integer and longint to string (reverse - strtoint)
floattostr to convert single and double to string (reverse - strtofloat)

strtoint and strtofloat should also work on the char type i think

@dnmr: forgot type extended for floattostr / strtofloat; Iuuno about char, but should be noted: Chr for Byte -> Char and Ord for Char -> Byte (which then can be InttoStr / StrtoInt`ed).

wellll, you could add word and whatnot you guys have in there. Never used them though, so didnt want to complicate things by using more weird terms |:

good point, sorryz (and i feel silly for completely forgetting about the million other types of integers heh) :(

InttoStr converts any sort of integer into a string, vice-versa is StrtoInt
FloattoStr converts any sort of floating point value into a string; StrtoFloat is vice-versa
