Question on Inter-map Communication

Hi everyone,

I am recently creating a custom campaign. I've just finished the first map. Now I want the player to move on the the second map. The problem I have is I've defined a lot of variables storing the properties of my player in the first map, now I want to transfer it all to the second map. Is there a way to save variables in a file or something? And then when the second map initializes, it would read all the variables and set the values accordingly.

Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't used them myself yet, but I believe banks is what will help you with this task. Both maps can use the same bank if I'm not mistaken.

May I ask you how you are able to jump from one map to another? Everything I tested in that area just ended the game.

Yes, banks are what you can use. You can open a bank with a certain name, store your units/variables in there (and save the bank) and then retrieve them by opening the same bank in your other map.

You can't store the variable itself, but only the value. So in the end it'd look like this:

JASS:

  Load Bank named "MyBankName"
  Set MyBank = last created bank

  Store unit MyHero with key "hero" in MyBank
  Store integer MyGoldAmount with key "gold" in MyBank

  Save bank MyBank


JASS:

  Load Bank named "MyBankName"
  Set MyBank = last created bank

  Set MyHeroInMission2 = key "hero" from MyBank
  Set MyGoldInMission2 = key "gold" from MyBank


There's some nice video tutorials on banks in mapster:

Builder Bob, your question is that exact question that I was going to ask.

So everyone, any ideas how to jump from one map to another?

    Broke the nozzle on my 3d printer and I don't have another heater block. So... I guess I'm fucked on that this weekend
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that sucks i bet they are expensive
  • Varine Varine:
    Not really
  • Varine Varine:
    The entire hot end is like 20 dollars, I just can't get anymore until next week
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
