m.0.n.3.y -- Here's another question. I'm using switch randomization for powerups. There are 9 powerups, and I only want any of the powerups to appear only about 30% of the time. So I was just going to use 5 switches for a total of 32 options and have the other 23 results restart the randomization process. Is there a better way to do this?

NudeRaider shouted: m.0.n.3.y Pro and Demon already gave correct answers, but let me add a pretty elegant way: Have the detection trigger owned by whoever is convenient for you. A single computer player, a force, all players - it doesn't matter. Now detect for the arbiter in conditions - also doesn't really matter how. In actions just set a dc to 1 for all players or the force that should have the text displayed. It will set the dc for each player to 1 individually. Because of this you can make a 2nd trigger that checks for the dc for current player and remove the dc for current player afterwards.
Ok that makes perfect sense NudeRaider
NudeRaider shouted: This method also has a bonus use: If you detect the arbiter in conditions for current player (set trigger owned accordingly!) then you can do the following: Add 1 to dc for current player AND add 1 to dc for all players. And in your 2nd trigger you can distinguish between players that just are informed and the player that actually had it, because their dc will be 2 instead of 1. So you can give them an additional reward or something dynamically.
Wow that's awesome! I'll definitely be doing this. Thanks for the tip, that's really cool

m.0.n.3.y shouted: NEW QUESTION: How is it possible to show text to all players when something occurs? EX: Player 1 builds an Arbiter. Trigger says, When player 1 builds an Arbiter, do something, then remove the Arbiter. Now, I'd like text to show for all other players when P1 builds an Arbiter that says "P1 built an arbiter!". But how is this possible when the the original trigger that detects if P1 built an Arbiter then removes the Arbiter in it's actions? Like, the Arbiter is detected as built, then Action occurs for P1, then Arbiter is removed. So how can you detect if the Arbiter is built to show text to the other plays saying "P1 built an Arbiter" if the other trigger quickly removes the Arbiter? Does that make sense?

NudeRaider -- that's why the All Players thing is neat: When one player runs a wait, their copy of hypers will actually be blocked. But the hyper effect will not be disrupted because the hypers of all the other players are still running.
[05:21 pm]
NudeRaider -- *running at the same time for the same player.
[05:20 pm]
NudeRaider -- m.0.n.3.y
m.0.n.3.y shouted: Mini Moose 2707 Shit. Ok what are the exact circumstances where using wait triggers causes wait blocks and messes things up? EX: If player 8 is a computer and has hyper triggers at the bottom of his list, can I use a few of triggers on each human player 1-6 with a few waits each lasting 50 - 1000ms? I've read the articles in SEN Wiki but still not super clear on it :/
simple: 2 waits running at the same time. Hyper triggers constantly block each other, but they have no other purpose than to force another trigger loop, and stay in that "blocking each other" state as long as possible (=NEO)
[05:17 pm]
NudeRaider -- Dem0n
Dem0n shouted: It's recommended to never use waits if you have hyper triggers.
yes and no. If you have to ask: yes. If you know what you're doing, you can use them in a non-disruptive manner.
[05:15 pm]
NudeRaider -- m.0.n.3.y
m.0.n.3.y shouted: ALSO: @NudeRaider for your "other setup" you mean give the hypers to the "All Players" player checkbox, not to each player individually, right?
That's equivalent. At the start of a game sc parses triggers and creates copies of triggers owned by player groups (forces and all players) to each player that is part of that group. During runtime there's only individual trigger owners.
[04:04 pm]
m.0.n.3.y -- Dem0n
Dem0n shouted: That won't work. And it's one extra trigger with 2 actions. Hardly extra work.
You're right. Thank you!

Dem0n -- That won't work. And it's one extra trigger with 2 actions. Hardly extra work.
[03:43 pm]
m.0.n.3.y -- Pr0nogo
Pr0nogo shouted: set a switch or a death counter and use that as the condition for the text display
Dem0n
Dem0n shouted: Yeah, set a death for each player and use that as a condition for displaying the text. Then clear the death afterwards if you want it to be repeating.
Yeah I was trying to get around this because it's extra work lmfao! I'll do some testing, but do you think this would work: ;;Trigger: "Players: Player 1",, "Conditions: Current player commands exactly 1 Aribter",, "Actions: Create 1 Marine for Current Player,,,Remove all Arbiter for Current Player";; ;; Trigger: "Players: Player 2",, "Conditions: Player 1 commands exactly 1 Arbiter",, "Actions: Display text message for current player 'Player 1 Created an Arbiter'" ------- it seems like this wouldn't work because triggers go in order form top to bottom right? So the order would be: P1 creates Arbiter -> Detect Arbiter -> Create Marine -> Remove Arbiter -> Try to detect Arbiter (from p2 triggers) -> Try to display text for P2 (but the Arbiter was already removed)........Overall I think I have to do what you guys are saying and use a death counters or switches for the text
[03:39 pm]
Dem0n -- Yeah, set a death for each player and use that as a condition for displaying the text. Then clear the death afterwards if you want it to be repeating.
[03:33 pm]
Pr0nogo -- though with hypers active, the command condition should do the trick

I can see why haha. They're so arduous. Thanks dude
[02:42 pm]
Dem0n -- It's recommended to never use waits if you have hyper triggers.
[02:40 pm]
m.0.n.3.y -- ALSO, ALSO: It seems like waits are completely useless. As in the example here: http://www.staredit.net/wiki/index.php?title=Wait_blocks ... if you only want to create 1 marine, and have a wait in the next trigger, the game wiill create 2 marines for the player instead of 1 because when the wait is reached the game reprocesses earlier triggers for the player. That seems completely broken and useless, I mean, you only wanted to create 1 marine and not 2!

m.0.n.3.y -- NudeRaider
NudeRaider shouted: m.0.n.3.y just don't defeat that player. :P m.0.n.3.y not sure about the exact effects when owned by a single player, but it doesn't matter when you make sure that player has no other waits. There's another hyper setup where you give the triggers to All Players which lifts the 'no wait' requirement a bit: As long as the hypers are below the other trigger with a wait (or right at the bottom to make sure) the players can have a wait running without problems, unless every player runs a wait at the same time, which also isn't as bad as regular wait blocks because it just stops the hypers until at least one player has no wait running anymore.
Thank you! NudeRaider
NudeRaider shouted: This is useful if you want to use transmissions in your map. For most other timing needs death counters are preferable since the death counters slow down and speed up with game speed, while waits are always real time. Could be important in single player maps where players can dynamically change game speed.
Wait so do sending transmissions cause wait blocks?

m.0.n.3.y -- Quick question if anyone is here: Can the player with hyper triggers also have other triggers? Is there some nuances with this, or is it that the player can not have any triggers with "waits" if they also have the hyper triggers?
