[2016-5-25. : 3:16 am]O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- I use TASM for random shit, too

Neiv shouted: That makes it sound far better than it is. The script files were built with assembler macros: https://www.codeofhonor.com/blog/tough-times-on-the-road-to-starcraft#comment-643992363I asked him and he said he uses TASM

[2016-5-25. : 2:40 am]TiKels -- I've found that the best results come from short but thorough messages. Say why you're bothering them, get your point across, show appreciation, get out. Also subject lines
[2016-5-25. : 2:38 am]zsnakezz -- ye
[2016-5-25. : 2:37 am]TiKels -- I think the real pussy is the person that doesn't try to contact the prof at all.
[2016-5-25. : 2:37 am]zsnakezz -- so that takes some sort of balls
[2016-5-25. : 2:36 am]TiKels -- Too many negatives w/e
[2016-5-25. : 2:36 am]zsnakezz -- not a pussy i dont think, he speaks what he thinks he knows
[2016-5-25. : 2:36 am]TiKels -- That's not to say that he's not a pussy, but he might also not NOT be a pussy
[2016-5-25. : 2:35 am]zsnakezz -- him*
[2016-5-25. : 2:35 am]zsnakezz -- corbo is all about himself, empathy is a milestone for hime
[2016-5-25. : 2:35 am]TiKels -- It's a skill that often takes empathy, thought, and time
[2016-5-25. : 2:34 am]zsnakezz -- though my solution might be out of a lack of fundamental understanding of why the problem occurred.
[2016-5-25. : 2:34 am]TiKels -- Corbo
Corbo shouted: Stop thinking about it and live your life. That is my lesson for today, didn't you get that?I think there's value in attempting to speak coercively
[2016-5-25. : 2:33 am]zsnakezz -- set at anywhere
[2016-5-25. : 2:33 am]zsnakezz -- and i normally dont cross swords within the same player, so each player would have their own ai script
[2016-5-25. : 2:33 am]zsnakezz -- and i usually resorted to using at [anywhere]
[2016-5-25. : 2:32 am]zsnakezz -- in my experience, running complete ai scripts within a specific location never ended well
[2016-5-25. : 2:32 am]zsnakezz -- like will they atleast move drones and start mining?
[2016-5-25. : 2:31 am]zsnakezz -- mining?
[2016-5-25. : 2:31 am]Dem0n -- Run AI script at location (their hive), give them drones, give them 20k minerals, and still all they do is mine minerals. Don't make any units or anything, smh.
[2016-5-25. : 2:30 am]Dem0n -- I still don't know why the AIs won't make any fucking units ROFL
[2016-5-25. : 2:20 am]zsnakezz -- from there you could use those units predictably without the need of spawns
[2016-5-25. : 2:20 am]zsnakezz -- for later use
[2016-5-25. : 2:20 am]zsnakezz -- so you could form control groups, one under AI control, and those you were able to order to a random location
[2016-5-25. : 2:19 am]zsnakezz -- units that are given order normally ignore ai scripts unless they are re assigned
[2016-5-25. : 2:18 am]zsnakezz -- so you could make like some form of sudo half AI half trigger thing
[2016-5-25. : 2:18 am]zsnakezz -- you could also have a unit check, giant location over an entire base, if a certain number of units are within it, set action, etc.
[2016-5-25. : 2:16 am]zsnakezz -- so the units would move in more predictable directions, so you could have better control
[2016-5-25. : 2:15 am]zsnakezz -- or you can try to funnel the AI's units using terrain to make them work better
[2016-5-25. : 2:15 am]zsnakezz -- the locations of which could be as specific as you want them to be in size
[2016-5-25. : 2:14 am]zsnakezz -- the point being 25 men in a certain area
[2016-5-25. : 2:14 am]Mini Moose 2707 -- O
[2016-5-25. : 2:13 am]zsnakezz -- its seeing if the ai got to a certain point, and if it did, it uses the attack command
[2016-5-25. : 2:13 am]zsnakezz -- its a check
[2016-5-25. : 2:13 am]zsnakezz -- no spawning
[2016-5-25. : 2:13 am]Mini Moose 2707 -- Kind of ruins the illusion of an RTS campaign if shit is spawning on a trigger while you're killing their base.
[2016-5-25. : 2:12 am]zsnakezz -- example zerg 8 brings 25 [men] to [rally check] order ALL [men] for zerg 8 to attack [moving location on hero]
[2016-5-25. : 2:11 am]zsnakezz -- using AI scripts would make it much more difficult than just using an attack command
[2016-5-25. : 2:11 am]zsnakezz -- in the map The Undead i have multiple waves of enemies attacking your specific location
[2016-5-25. : 2:10 am]zsnakezz -- dear demon
[2016-5-25. : 1:19 am]Dem0n -- Anyone know how to robotize, say, the dropship's lines?
[2016-5-25. : 1:16 am]Corbo -- Stop over-complicating yourself.
[2016-5-25. : 1:16 am]Corbo -- Stop thinking about it and live your life. That is my lesson for today, didn't you get that?
[2016-5-25. : 1:12 am]Zoan -- Just kidding but seriously he hasn't responded.. he'll probably respond tomorrow... right?
[2016-5-25. : 1:10 am]Zoan -- Corbo
Corbo shouted: I never said you had to act like an ass. I just said it seems like so because people aren't usually used to being treated in a direct manner. You don't "burn bridges that don't need to be burned" you simply don't lose time on puny things like "OMG HOW SHOULD I ASK THIS?! OMG" you just ...do. Seriously, what's more efficient than just doing?Vrael
Vrael shouted: you don't have to be a pussy about it or anything, you can think of the right words for the situation without being all "Well golly gee professor, I really don't want to be such a bother and I know you're busy but if you could find it in your heart to take five seconds and send me that piece of junk well golly I sure woulda appreciate it"You are all of no help and now my professor has stopped replying T_T

Mini Moose 2707 shouted: I can't help but wonder how Blizzard made these .DATs and .BINs. Did they hack them together manually? Did they have internal tools? If so, have our modding tools surpassed them?They made some crappy MFC apps to edit them. They even forgot a couple of them in the mpqs of some language versions. I think the spanish one had a .got editor.
[2016-5-25. : 12:28 am]KrayZee -- NyanCon is a thing, apprently. Good job, Nyan Cat.

Mini Moose 2707 shouted: Someone figured out specifically what it does, but I think it should work well enough for that.I think it's what's used in Wizzy Wozzle so they attack the town LMAO
[2016-5-24. : 9:42 pm]Dem0n -- Is "Send all units on random suicide missions" a location AI?
[2016-5-24. : 9:29 pm]Neiv -- I know, that doesn't explain anything
[2016-5-24. : 9:29 pm]Neiv -- Dem0n
Dem0n shouted: I know there's "Value area higher", but I don't know what that doesMini Moose 2707
Mini Moose 2707 shouted: Someone figured out specifically what it does, but I think it should work well enough for that.It makes the ai defend the region in middle of script's location with units worth of 200 air and 200 ground strength
