Some lines of tutorials and useful lists/tables

Postby Rainbow » Tue Nov 03, 2009 20:13

Hey, i made some small how-2 of ET scripting in the past and hope it will help some people who are interested in scripting. I also arranged some popular lists: Color codes, NQ variables, list of vsay commands.
Hope this is welcome'd here :)
Criticism and additions requested..

--snip--

Chapter 1: Basics

ET has the ability to execute a config-file located in the etmain (or noquarter) folder.
This works with the simple ingame command:
Code: Select all
/exec filename.cfg

You can write everything in such a file like ingame, every /command ingame. Only difference: you dont need a / in the file (You just need to add ingame the "/" because ET has to vary between commands and simple chat.).

Essential for ET scripting are binds, allocated commands on a key.

We will start with the chat commands:

say (main chat)
say_team (team chat)
say_buddy (fireteam chat)

vsay (main chat)
vsay_team (team chat)
vsay_buddy (fireteam chat)

The syntax for a working bind is really easy:
Code: Select all
bind key command "variable;another variable; a 3rd;and so on"


say (and say_team, say_buddy) has only one variable: The text.
Example:
Code: Select all
bind g say "Hello together!"

This will bind the chat text "Hello together!" on the key g.

vsay (and vsay_team, vsay_buddy) work same way, only difference: you have to choose a voicefile first:
Code: Select all
bind h vsay Affirmative "Yes Mister!"

This will bind the voices "Jawohl, Yes,etc" with the chat text Yes Mister! on key h.
A list of all voicefiles is at the end.


You can bind more than one event, just separate them with a semicolon (;).
You can unbind a key on two ways: bind something other on it or use unbind key on it.


Chapter 2: Colors

You can colorize your text with ^ and a color or letter, its exact the same like colorizing nicknames.
You have the choice of the following:
^0 = Black, ^1 = Red, ^2 = Green, ^3 = Yellow, ^4 = Blue, ^5 = Light Blue, ^6 = Violet, ^7 = White, ^8 = Orange, ^9 = Grey.
Remember that this number will not be displayed in a chat or your nickname!
A list of all possibilities at the end of this post.

Chapter 3: Loops

Loops:
There is only one way to implemet loops in your script:
The example:

Code: Select all
bind kp_pgup "vstr quota"

set quota "vstr quota1"
set quota1 "say ^3Frank Lloyd Wright ^2'^7The truth is more important than the facts.^2';set quota vstr quota2"
set quota2 "say ^3William Shakespeare ^2'^7Love all, trust a few.^2';set quota vstr quota3"
set quota3 "say ^3Aristotle ^2'^7The gods too are fond of a joke.^2';set quota vstr quota1"



This code will bind the content of the variable "quota" on the keypad key "8" (kp_pgup).
The 2nd line set the state of this variable to "quota1", which is defined in the line below.
Each press on keypad 8 will now "execute" the actual content of "quota", starting with quota 1: a quote of Frank L. Wright. Past of the variable state is "set quota vstr quota2" with happens right after the say command is done. If you press keypad key 8 now again, the state of "quota" changed to "quota2" and its conent. And so on.
This was a pretty easy to understand, but also pretty useless example.

A better one: A loop that changes only 2 different states, like changing the field of view.
You only need to know the commands for this, it is

Code: Select all
set cg_fov value


Normal is 90 or so, with the following code you can switch between 2 values:

Code: Select all
bind MOUSE3 "vstr fov"
set fov1 "set cg_fov 90; set fov vstr fov2"
set fov2 "set cg_fov 112; set fov vstr fov1"


This will allow you to switch between with MOUSE3 (your scroll wheel).



Chapter 4: Other stuff

If is possible to bind the execution of a file on a key, too!
Code: Select all
bind PGDN   "exec autoexec.cfg"

This will bind the /exec autoexec.cfg ingame on your PAGE DOWN key and prevents the annoying typing of this.



You can use the following variables only with the noquarter mod, not in etpro (afaik):

// [A] - Last person who gave you ammo.
// [D] - Last person who killed you.
// [H] - Last person who gave you health.
// [K] - Last person you killed.
// [L] - Your current location. (Coordenates in where u are)
// [N] - Your nickname.
// [R] - Last person who revived you.
// [P] - Teammate you are pointing at.
// [s] - Your health (HP).
// [W] - Weapon you are currently holding.
// [T] - Ammo u have in current weapon.
NQ 1.2.7:
Code: Select all
** [p] is working for spectators again
** [b] added: last teammate who damaged you
** [c] added: the damage the last teammate did to you
** [x] added: the last (non-bot) client that connected
** [m] added: the last teammate who called for a medic
** [f] added: the last teammate who called for a fieldops (ammo)


You have to add this in/at your binds to give the value out.
Example:
Code: Select all
bind 1 "vsay_team Medic "^d|^6Heal ^dme! ^6Only [s] ^dhp ^6left^d|"

This binds the sound Need a medic + the chat "heal me! only X hp left" ! Colorized and with your current hp. "The _team" prevents that you tell your foes that you have low hp.

You can comment your code with a "//" before the comment. This will comment out the rest of the line. I recommend this very much,b ecause you will fast loose the overview of the code.

Another example:
Code: Select all
   bind uparrow   "set cg_drawGun   1; echo drawgun ON"
   bind downarrow   "set cg_drawGun   0; echo drawgun OFF"

Press Cursor Up to show your weapon and Down to make it disappear.

I am very disappointed with that attitude.
I can assure you it is much, much more important than that."
