Hi all - Having no programming knowledge or played around with scripts such as this - is there a tutorial on the structure of the scripts as in what does what - what that\'s for etc etc

hope Benjamin Aeilkema don\'t mind me using his script as example but to me this is just an alien language and while I can understand a little the rest is over my head - hell maybe I\'m just stupid but any help would be great.

The structure is :condition:action
or :condition,condition:action,action

You can have more than one condition before you do an action or several actions.

Use STATE variable to test it's state and then act on it. Usually STATE is 0 on script initialisation.

e.g. :state=0:<move enemy left>,state=1
:state=1:<move enemy right>,state=2
etc etc

The best thing to do is try each command and see what it does.

I agree wholeheartedly -

The best thing to do is test test test.

Oh - but build a special test level for FPSC.

So you can try new "tricks" in the test level.

Please dont test on your game project - It can be messy / painful emotionally!

Merry Xmas one & all

And just make a build game where you test things, and change the script in the script folder of the built game

AND download FPI Editer.
