In mm7 you are limited, i don't rememeber if you can use blank spots, probably yes. In mm8 (in merge mod) this limit is removed.

Yes, but barely it will be helpfull, mostly it consist of asm injections: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cot9oz2zhjqy1 ... s.lua?dl=0

Should be. There's few examples how to modify sprite's events on GrayFace's site: https://grayface.github.io/mm/ext/ref/# ... ck-up-(MM8)

Thank you! For right now, I'm really just wanting to look at it and see if I can figure out what it's doing since I'm still learning .lua.

(I'm ALSO holding out the hope that the potion structure is similar enough in MM7/MM8 that editing potion effects in MM7 should be a simple matter of isolating the relevant code in this script and then finding the correct offsets in MM7.exe. Feel free to tell me I'm diseased in the head if that's not the case >.>)

Looking at the examples on GitHub now... looks like the relevant (helpful) code is:

Code: Select all

local function InitBarrel(i, a)
   mapvars.Barrels = mapvars.Barrels or {}
   mapvars.Barrels[i] = mapvars.Barrels[i] or math.random(1, 7)
   
   a.Event = SpriteEvents + i
   evt.map[SpriteEvents + i] = Barrel
   evt.hint[SpriteEvents + i] = Game.NPCTopic[TopicBase + Reorder[mapvars.Barrels[i]]]
end


So... I GUESS what's happening here is that this is the global barrel initialization code. But this is a bit more advanced and I'm not sure exactly what's happening here outside of the fact that (1, 7) tells me that it is including white barrels (presumably this is 1, 6 by default?).

Also curious... what are the odds that +Stat bonuses could be flagged by the system as unstackable like +Skill bonuses are? Would let me balance around higher (i.e. much more useful) boosts earlier on without things going completely off the rails later on.

I suppose the alternative would be to have a global script capping the stat bonus from equipment... except I don't know if the script can tell the difference between stat boosts from equipment and from other sources?

You'll need to inspect whole code example, it converts trees into barrels. System which spread randomly barrel events is hardcoded, i don't know way to change it in MM7 engine, i have not looked.

You can use this event for that task: https://grayface.github.io/mm/ext/ref/# ... nusByItems
It gets table as parameter, you can analyze "Result" filed and cap it.

I see the pieces... sort of. But I don't see how they fit together. My best guess is:

Code: Select all

evt.CalcStatBonusByItems (Result)


But I don't think that's right.

Here are examples how to use events in MMExt (third one is what you need): https://grayface.github.io/mm/ext/ref/#Artifact-Bonuses
You have to check if t.Stat is equal to stat, cap of which you want to alter, and if it is equal - change t.Result.

Code: Select all

function events.CalcStatBonusByItems(t)
   if t.Stat > 50 then
      for it in t.Player:EnumActiveItems() do
         t.Result = 50
      end
   end
end


Is this what I'm after, then?

No, t.Stat is numerical code of Stat, 0 is Might, 1 is Intellect, etc: https://grayface.github.io/mm/ext/ref/#const.Stats
And if you want to cap all stats, there's no need to traverse through items, this should work:

Code: Select all

function events.CalcStatBonusByItems(t)
   if t.Result > 50 then
      t.Result = 50
   end
end

Well, damn, that makes life a lot easier.

On a similar note... how much of the contents of 2dEvents.txt controls the wares (types and treasure levels) of a shop and how much of that is hard-coded? It's one of the few text files I can't really make much sense of.

2DEvents.txt does not allow this. You'll need MM7 version of "RemoveHouseRulesLimits.lua" script, it will generate "House rules.txt" in "Data\Tables" folder, where you can change quality and type of items for each shop. Problem is version for MM7 is not debugged at all. Put it into "Scripts\Structs" folder. Links:
Simple version (does not remove limits): https://www.dropbox.com/s/tmp4gja52kgvt ... s.lua?dl=0

Means you'll be able to edit existing houses, but not add new ones or only add a few.

Gotcha.

I've been coming around and actually managing to figure out how to use use MME lately (would have stonewalled almost immediately without Rodril's help), and things are looking really positive for me being able to do most of what I'm after. I had a slightly larger list the last time I asked you specifically about it, but honestly it's down to just three things that I don't believe MME currently has hooks for: potion effects, weapon/armor skill level bonuses, and changing spell effects.

Changing potion effects is technically already DONE... at least, for MM8. Was hoping that applying what's been done there is as simple as finding the correct offsets in MM7.

Weapon and armor skill level perks is something I recall you mentioning in the past as something you intended to add hooks for later on... was that ever done or is that still TBD?

Changing spell schools/effects is probably the hardest one, though I don't intend to use any effects/animations that aren't currently existing... just move some stuff around and tweak a few effect durations here and there.

I came to the form to reply. Thanks for the link.
Yes. Thanks for your reply and also decompiling Evt files with the script you have at that site seems to work only for MM8. I get an error messages when I try it with the others, MM6 & MM7. I will get the image for that console error as soon as possible. I use two types of formats for the quests, the lua (which is your example) and the EVT format (the one that go into the goble.evt). The lua is the one that cause the problem. How do I attack the image to the reply? I don't see a button to attach an image. Thanks. I did not know you had a forum for MMExtension. I used EVT format because I could not remove items from inventories. These 010Editor templates are at the MMExtion forum? If I leave the "KeepQuestItem = true, I don't get an error message and the quest is finished. Yes it is more convenient to use the lua format except for that error. You don't have to edit 5 files to make a quest.
