Discussion My First Interactive Tutorial ^)^

So, I rewrote lessons 30-50 and am continuing to add new lessons as I have not yet gotten all of the information from the old edition into this new one. There is some new information as well and a lot of the more advanced stuff is much more clear ^)^. Also, exercise 50 is pretty hard ; ).

Do any of the lessons need work? Have I done well so far? Tx.

I'd also be interested in any ideas you guys might have to improve lessons ; P.

If anything seemed hard to understand in the slightest or complex at all, please let me know ;o. I'm aiming for something that's super easy to understand =).

I'm working on this for my saving and loading tutorial ; P. Each lesson is really tiny (very little text) ^)^. I've been told that the lessons are actually pretty interesting and fun to mess with =).

Tx all ^^

To get into the tutorial, just run the map.

Lessons #45 & 48 are missing the DisplayText() call.

I think you should add a section on explaining where save/load can be used/is useful. In Single Player campaigns? Only multiplayer rpgs? Where?

And shouldn't a good encryption be done on the bits level aka block cipher (kinda overkill for a war3 map though). DES anyone =)?

I fixed that about 20 minutes before you posted ; ).

Perhaps a lesson 0? : )

While that is true, the resulting code would be too large. Encryption should increase the code size by a minimal amount. Small codes are more important than encryption.

The Scrambler library is good enough and does not add information to the code =).


Using nes's system you can change the password and the problem would be solved
Even though nes has put a lot of effort increasing security
ahh thats cool, i didnt get a chance to go over it : /
Yea encryption and security wise, my stuff uses the most advanced of all of the wc3 save/load resources. I also go over the various things I do in the tutorial (player unique scrambling of the code, player unique shuffling of the base, player unique checksums, CRC). Also, I talk about a good way to do version in save/load codes : ).

I believe in Encryption for wc3 that does not increase the code size. The encryption idea was DES, which I'm obviously not going to do as it would drastically increase code size : ).

Also, this tutorial is extremely easy to understand. Two guys, one a complete GUI noob and another a failure at math, read the tutorial and found it very easy to understand ; ). The avg time to get through the tutorial is around 2 hours I think.

I'm just hoping that this tutorial improves the save/load codes in ORPG maps ^)^. Smaller codes for me to type = happy face : D.
I have completely rewritten lessons 30-50. There is new information and everything got shifted around.

I currently don't have the rewrites for saving partial sets, advanced catalogs, or any of the security stuff. I'm in the process of still rewriting them : P.

It's been taking a long time, but hopefully the more advanced stuff is more clear ; ). I know a lot of people just stopped doing it after lesson 29. That was my fault as the quality of the lessons drastically decreased from 30+ as I was getting tired of writing the lessons ; O.

Also, practice problem 50 is very difficult ; o. It tells you to save 4 values in the correct order without giving you the order =). You have to use logic to figure it out. Also, because the problem is so large, it doesn't display the solution when you fail it : |.

    Also fixed a bug, where I prevented the CPU fans from spinning wildly if I reverse the order of rendering and updating function calls in Pokemon Walking
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Is that going to be a full game now tom?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    what is this Ghan? https://enterprise.ghannet.com/ you are totally holding out on us my friend
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Not mine, I just ran the server. They let the domain expire but it was a cool project so I kept it alive there.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Used to be enterpriserpg.com I think.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you go to the world editor tutorials site and click the starcraft link it takes you there :)
  • Ghan Ghan:
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I forgot about that alias name. (The full URL still went to the correct site.) That should be fixed.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Silkroad Forums site really needs help.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Its software has been out of support since 2017.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The woes of using custom styles....
  • The Helper The Helper:
    does anyone still use silk road forums?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's about as active as here I'd say. Not much going on.
  • Wizard Wizard:
    I think it doesn't help that the silk road game isn't as popular any more I think. The only MMO I play these days is FFXIV like most other people I know.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I checked a status page for players and it says the game has 500 daily players.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I cannot believe that site is still going I wonder if Ryoko is involved with it at all would love to talk to him again and see what he is up to
  • The Helper The Helper:
    my oldest daughter failed her driving test today for her license she is 22 and yes I have been driving her everywhere her whole life
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Now they are blaming me on Facebook for her failure LOL I am accepting it because it is my failure I am her driving teacher even though she had certified driving instruction from the best place in town I for some reason cannot teach her how to drive this is frustrating
  • jonas jonas:
    I didn't get my license until I was 25
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Back in the old days when I was getting a license people were getting them at 16 yrs old and many were getting hardships so they could get them earlier. Almost nobody did not drive when they were able. Nowadays though....
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Why drive when there's Uber Eats?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I hope Varine is OK have not heard from him in a while.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Diablo 2 Resurrected launching in 9 days.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just got a new to me computer hope it will run it
