Please bare with me on this, this is an ALPHA release. Meaning no, it is not yet complete. It is usable and works, however. The nature of this system is that it is so complicated that I need to start getting feedback early to direct it, or it may be difficult to maintain later.

I have a big to-do list, but this is pretty cool.

It's... an item and inventory system. It displays in the ability section of the UI instead of ... something else. The interface is pretty small for what it does.

Example:
JASS:
//! runtextmacro ItemType("Sword")
    //! runtextmacro SetItemName("Really Big Sword")
    //! runtextmacro SetItemDescription("No really, this sword is huge.")
    //! runtextmacro SetItemHotkey("X")
    //! runtextmacro SetItemPocket("Pocket1")
    //! runtextmacro SetItemIcon("ReplaceableTextures\\CommandButtons\\BTNDaggerOfEscape.blp")
    //! runtextmacro SetItemBaseAbility("ACbf")
//! runtextmacro ItemStruct()
    method onUse takes nothing returns nothing
        call BJDebugMsg(this.name+" used.")
        call BJDebugMsg(GetUnitName(this.holder.unit))
    endmethod
    method onAcquire takes nothing returns nothing
        call BJDebugMsg(this.name+" acquired.")
        call BJDebugMsg(GetUnitName(this.holder.unit))
    endmethod
    method onCreate takes nothing returns nothing
        call BJDebugMsg(this.name+" created.")
    endmethod
    private static method onInit takes nothing returns nothing
        call CreateItemXY(thistype.itemType,0,0)
    endmethod
//! runtextmacro EndItem()
The above writes all associated object data. Only that code is required to generate everything.

I need to implement heaps of things like an ItemData module to apply to plug systems and global things in, and dropping items, etc. :)

Updates:
- Version 0.8.0 (ALPHA): ALPHA Release.

Ooh. That is nice. Maybe I'll mess around with it after my party today. :eek: Bookmarked so I don't forget.
 
Bug:

If you open/close or change pocket, the cooldowns reset.

Anyway, it's awesome.

Note: J4L obligated me to write that this system was awsum.

Proof:
[17:27] <Jesus4Lyf> yea
[17:27] <Jesus4Lyf> comment in thread tho
[17:27] <Jesus4Lyf> but say its awesome as well as the bug report
[17:27] <Jesus4Lyf> plz
[17:27] <Jesus4Lyf> lol

>J4L obligated me to write that this system was awsum.
Ahh, you tool. :p
If you open/close a pocket or change pocket, the cooldown reset.
I think I have a way to solve that. I recall this issue in Savage Creed, where this sys started a year or two ago. Hm.

There's a couple of ways to solve it... I'll think about it. :)

>J4L

Maybe have 1 spell book per bag, that all have the same icon. Disable all books, when you click and item, enable the good spellbook. Cooldown should be saved if I'm right.

Ya? ya? no?
 

Jesus4Lyf

Good Idea™
Well actually, I was thinking I could have it done on the object data side of things. Each pocket could have a spellbook with ALL itemtypes for that pocket, and then disable/enable the actual abilities for the player when they click on the unit. I don't like that a heap because it'd add delay, though.

Edit: I can do it a few ways. Have multiple "open last" abilities with different orders is one such way. Then the item abilities can remain there. Else I can enable/disable for players. I kind of like the multiple open last abilities thing. :)

Ah you're right, it would be slow. But it's an ultime solution if others don't work.

Offtopic:
I'd like to see something like that from you.

JASS:

library UnitMerge

    //! textmacro InitUnitStruct
        private struct UnitMerge
            string unitname
            string tooltip
            string ubertooltip
    //! endtextmacro
    
    //! textmacro EndUnitStruct
        endstruct
    //! endtextmacro


    //! textmacro SetUnitName takes NAME
        thistype.unitname = $NAME$
    //! endtextmacro
    //! textmacro SetUnitTooltip takes NAME
        thistype.tooltip = $NAME$
    //! endtextmacro
    //! textmacro SetUberUnitTooltip takes NAME
        thistype.ubertooltip = $NAME$
    //! endtextmacro
    
    // And then, with these informations, merge the unit.
    //! textmacro MergeUnit
        //! external ObjectMerger
    //! endtextmacro    


endlibrary

// Ex. of usage.

scope fun

//! runtextmacro InitUnitStruct()

//! runtextmacro SetUnitName(&quot;Jesus4Lyf&quot;)

//! runtextmacro EndUnitStruct()
//! runtextmacro MergeUnit()

// POOF unit is merged and it was much simplier than the command //! external ObjectMerger zzzz zzzz &quot;zzz&quot; zz etc..

endscope

Can't drop abilities >.<
In Savage Creed I didn't use point-target or unit-target items, so I wrote a system that let you click a "drop" icon and then the ability of the item you wish to stop. I thought for this, I would have a "drop" icon which would display a dialogue of the items in the pocket. Click on the item you wish to drop. What do you think? :)

This is really cool from a scripting standpoint, and I shamelessly might steal the idea of external blocking object mergering to do the dirty work in the OE and the hooks for the jass end.

I kind of think though the example is anemic, and hard to demonstrate why this is so cool.

Go ahead. I wouldn't mind a little credit note if that's alright.

It totally is, but I need to do a little more work on the core sys. I found the bug I was experiencing - object merger doesn't seem to correctly do Channel based abilities.

There's a lot of design going on. I want this:
JASS:
struct MyItemData extends array
    implement ItemData
    integer timesUsed
    private method onUse takes nothing returns boolean
        set this.timesUsed=this.timesUsed+1
        return this.timesUsed&lt;=3 // items may only be used 3 times. true lets item be used, false blocks.
    endmethod
    private method onCreate takes nothing returns nothing
        set this.timesUsed=0
    endmethod
endstruct
 
This system is like.. really epic ^_-

I was first looking through going omg at the text macros and then I just didn't want to comment because I was going omg at the text macros, but then I look at the example and go wow


You somehow pulled off a brilliant interface with text macros of all things which deserves like 20 thumbs up from me. The interface *would* be a lot better using definitions as that'd get rid of the fugly text macros and just allow you to do a lot more to make it easier to use, but again that's cJASS so while it may be beneficial, the benefits are so very small in comparison to the work you'd have to go through and the fact that it wouldn't be allowed anywhere, lol ^_^.

Anyhow, really awesome job ^_-.


If only there was a prettier way to code in LUA /cry

Yeah, I'll totally credit you. Great Idea, I think I'll recreate my old framework DBMod (drunken brawler mod) and do it with object merger so that its a lot more easy to plop into a map.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?

    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
