ok cool that sounds like a good way to go about it, waaaaaaaaay to advanced for what i can do at the moment though so ill look into it later when I'm hopefully more adept

wow, that fixed everything. thanks for all your help over the last few days. As for the translating I dont really know how id do that, I learnt all that i know from Christopho's tutorials a few years back and then reading scripts. I wish they had never finished there's still so so much to learn. As for now though the game can switch between English and French no problem so maybe its ok already? (French probably makes no sense as i cant speak it lol)

I was thinking about making a punch then kick just so that punch isnt constantly being spammed, i was trying to make Dbz characters and even though it looks pretty cool them spamming punching, it just got me thinking, this is where i got to with them...

Development / combos...again
« on: February 11, 2019, 09:10:11 am »
I've been thinking about combo's again like many other before and i was wondering whether its possible to have one item call another within a timer to kind of...pretend its a combo

eg... 'item A' on use
       create timer, if 'item A' used again within timer then
        use 'item B'

would this be possible?
is this a stupid way to do it?
is there a better way?

yes that worked for switching it, now when i open the pause_options after changing shader, or starting the game with one active i get this

Info: Shader: 'hq2x'
Error: In on_started: scripts/menus/pause_options.lua:53: bad argument #1 to create (Bad field 'text' (string expected, got shader))

this is 32-60 of pause_options
Code: [Select]
function options_submenu:on_started()

  submenu.on_started(self)

  local font, font_size = language_manager:get_menu_font()
  local width, height = sol.video.get_quest_size()
  local center_x, center_y = width / 2, height / 2

  self.column_color = { 255, 255, 255}
  self.text_color = { 115, 59, 22 }

  self.video_mode_label_text = sol.text_surface.create{

    vertical_alignment = "top",
    font = font,
    font_size = font_size,
    text_key = "selection_menu.options.video_mode",
    color = self.text_color,
  }
  self.video_mode_label_text:set_xy(center_x - 50, center_y - 58)

    self.video_mode_text = sol.text_surface.create{ -------------------------------------------------line 53

    vertical_alignment = "top",
    font = font,
    font_size = font_size,
    text = sol.video.get_shader(),
    color = self.text_color,
  }

submenu
Code: [Select]
  local submenu_index = self.game:get_value("pause_last_submenu")
  submenu_index = (submenu_index % #submenus) + 1
  self.game:set_value("pause_last_submenu", submenu_index)
  sol.menu.start(self.game.pause_menu, submenus[submenu_index], false)

pause_map
Code: [Select]
  elseif command == "right" then
    self:next_submenu()
    handled = true

I know this option doesnt even work the same anymore, but it would be pretty cool to be able to flick the game into grayscale at the touch of a button, go even more retro and feel like you're on the gameboy  ;D

i have no idea, this stuff is way to advanced for me to know whats happening, it was a miracle that i got it to work on 1.5 so when it broke changing to 1.6 i died a little inside.

id happily just take out the option to change the "graphics" like i have in the save_game menu. and just start the game in HQ2X. but i cant seem to take it out the options_menu or have the options_menu run correctly without it in

yeah its in there,  along with the grayscale, 6xbrx and sepia, with the hq2x.frag.glsl,

as in, it was there beforehand so is not the fix

Development / video mode
« on: February 07, 2019, 09:51:14 am »
hey, i used to run this at the start of game set the video mode.
Code: [Select]
function sol.main:on_started()
-- Set Video Mode.
 sol.video.set_mode("hq2x")

but now in 1.6 i get this :-
"Warning: The function sol.video.set_mode() is deprecated since Solarus 1.6. Use sol.video.set_shader() instead."

but when i change this :-
Code: [Select]
-- This function is called when Solarus starts.
function sol.main:on_started()
-- Set Video Mode.
 sol.video.set_shader("hq2x")

i now get this :-
"Error: In on_started: main.lua:15: bad argument #2 to set_shader (shader or nil expected, got no value)
stack traceback:
[C]: at 0x01a54540
[C]: in function 'set_shader'
main.lua:15: in function <main.lua:13>"

I have the same issue in options_menu
Code: [Select]
      if self.cursor_position == 1 then
        -- Change the video mode.
        sol.video.switch_mode()
        self.video_mode_text:set_text(sol.video.get_mode())
      else

Warning: The function sol.video.switch_mode() is deprecated since Solarus 1.6. Use sol.video.set_shader() instead.
Warning: The function sol.video.get_mode() is deprecated since Solarus 1.6. Use sol.video.get_shader() instead.

but when i change that to :-
Code: [Select]
      if self.cursor_position == 1 then
        -- Change the video mode.
--        sol.video.switch_mode()
sol.video.set_shader()
    --    self.video_mode_text:set_text(sol.video.get_mode())
self.video_mode_text:set_text(sol.video.get_shader())
      else

i now get this error :-
"Error: In on_command_pressed: scripts/menus/pause_options.lua:229: bad argument #2 to set_shader (shader or nil expected, got no value)

I looked at the scripts for the development games and on github and they have the same script in pause_options.

Hey Max, glad you came through, I've been keeping my eye on Oceans Heart. It's looking better and better each time i see it, I loved the enemy that runs away from you that you made, i see your graphics are included in the demo art as well, fair play.

Here's my Hud script, im pretty sure i ripped it from one of the solarus made games and then adapted it to work for me

Your scripts / Re: Deku/Turret Type Enemy
« on: May 04, 2018, 02:31:22 am »
Hey, just thought I'd show you what I made with your code, I have made a wake_up animation for him which looks pretty cool but couldn't work out how to put a timer on the waking part so that it would show so I just left it out. seems to instantly go from asleep to awake...and if you adjust the timer in place already it goes mental for a moment and repeats. Still looks ok without it I think. Was going to make the nuts it shoots rebound and be able to kill him as well. I know the triple Octorok code has the ability to do that so I'll have a little look at that and see how it looks/works plus Agahnim also has that "ability" so there's at least 2 scripts for me to read through, hopefully I can figure it out.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-kEPrG9wKQ


Thanks or making this again. Really appreciate the effort...I'm sure someone else must be wanting this type of enemy as well. Since this video I've also added a wall on top of the enemy that removes when the enemy dies to stop being able to traverse whilst hurt and to stop being hurt (but not damaged) if you touch him. only works on the Y axis but meh, it's half the battle.

Just read you hope to have a demo next week, looking forward to that!

This looks great man, only just seen it I've been stuck at work. I'll defo try to input this into my project. Still think you should make it into one of your mandrakes. maybe I'll try that.

Is the smoke effect coming from the chimney new? haven't noticed it before now, its nice.


Just tried to add it. I get this error

Error: In timer callback: [string "enemies/lib/turret.lua"]:281: attempt to call method 'go' (a nil value)

any idea how to fix that?
