Question on Inter-map Communication

New Member
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?

    really cool! I saw the game before but always thought it's just a half as good double dragon. Now I realize it actually has a lot of depth!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I just saw a bunch of running and jumping past all the enemies look like it was scripted as he said I guess I should have watched the whole thing. I only got a couple of minutes in. You should post that video in the forum Tom

    Currently busy with making the run even better, so I'll post that new one once I'm done. Right now, I had to modify the emulator itself, the tools that makes this video, and some RAM address disassembling / reverse-engineering to get the right values, and such.
