README: The original purpose of this thread was to bookmark useful solutions and shared scripts that I found whilst digging in the old forums. Many of which may have been hard to find again without constant re-digging. As such, you will have to read over the original threads for all the information to be apparent.

Thanks heaps  :), there's lots to be added.  Seems whenever I've gone away, the forums have been active with script posts.  Otherwise I usually add them as I see them.  There is a lot of script posts not added thou because I was unclear whether an entire solution was shown in the original thread. 

There was also some stuff I just wasn't sure about or just didn't know what to label it.  And there was some advanced scripts that I left out originally because Helpful Links was intended to be simple to use scripts. 

So any help is greatly appreciated!

---

Also guys I started working on a 'Scripts Index' CHM/PDF document a while back.  Everything in this thread will get added eventually.

The idea is to have a document with all the scripts listed, so you can use it for either copy/pasting them into your mod, looking through them for ideas or just using as examples to help with your own scripts.

it will have these features.

- List scripts by Category (animationscript, takedamagescript etc.)
- List scripts by Author (DC, Bloodbane, etc.)
- List all scripts at once
- NotePad++ style colours for script display (WIP, need to setup a CSS style to prevent doing it manually)
- ability to highlight text and copy from the document and paste into another text file.
- usage syntax for each script (eg.  spawn01 {name} {x} {y} {z})
- list any required scripts for each script entry

Also need add some help for those new to script
- Documents on scripting (already in the OpenBOR help document, just have to copy it over)
- examples of usage or explanation for each(or some) script(s)
- explanation on combining animation scripts (using cut/paste or include/import method)
- 'Easy to use' / 'Cut and Paste' scripts Category. (the basic common ones we all use)

Screens



It's going to need more work from me and I'll need input from scripters in the community.  At the moment I added a lot of things that are probably outdated and unnecessary.

Originally I was going to add every script ever made, because I thought someone who was good with code already, but is new to openbor scripting, could use them as reference material.  Hence the different categories to help you find the most useful stuff.

Basically wanted to see what people think of the idea first, because there is a lot of scripts I would really need input from the authors on the intended use of the script.  Also it's not something I can do by myself, I only have half a clue about scripting.  ::)


Edit: added to index

- Battle Music
- Random Music
- Random Enemy Spawn
- Global Scale
- Play Sound once at Title Screen
- Wall Splat

Great work BeasTie.
I have an old manual with the same format of your manual. Compiled by cha0s56.
It's out of date in some feautures, but it's very useful. 
 
O Ilusionista said:
That is a nice idea. But I suggest to check every script, because some could be very old.

This. I've noticed scripts still floating around that I wrote all the way back when the script engine had first came online. While they will probably still work, there are far more elegant solutions available thanks to continued development of the engine.

DC
 
I haven't been able to get the "facing forward - Flipping Backward" Script to function despite multiple attempts. I do hesitate to label it outdated though, as it's VERY likely my own fault. Would anyone like to confirm?
 
Thanks again!

The only thing bad is the search function dont't work like the old OpenBor Help.

But all the new info and every feature is in order for every theme. Very useful.
 
@ O and DC - You guys seem to miss the point, I'm not good with scripting and should not be explaining it to people, the idea was people who know this stuff give advice what to include and what not too.

Anyhow I'm done with trying to do this.  It would really help the community thou if someone would step up and post scripts with proper explanations like Bloodbane has.  And explain to people the process of importing scripts etc.  It's not really that hard, if people can use them like any other command than script is less intimidating to them.  That's all I really wanted to accomplish from it.
 
No one was trying to discourage you BeasTie. Our only worry was that posting old scripts is just like the old BOR how to make a character manual. It's so out of date that it's actually worse than no information at all, because nowadays following those instructions only teaches awful habits.

Same for older scripts. Some of those scripts had cobbled together hacks in them that are no longer necessary and should not see the light of day. A new user checking them out would think "Oh, THAT'S how it works..." and then find themselves with headaches down the road.

Posting ready made scripts and functions is a great idea, one that I promoted myself eons ago. How do you think my scripts got online in the first place? We were just suggesting some caution be exercised so that those ready made functions really were ready to plug and play - not purge and pray.

:)

I always wanted to take that info out. Someday, we could remove it.

I will try to post some scripts I made once I have time.
 
I know you guys weren't trying to discourage me, I totally agree what your saying, that was always my concern too when trying to make it.  The other issue is simply not being able to explain the usage of some scripts properly, or even know their purpose.  I just wasn't knowledgeable enough to pull this off.  I've had some small success with script, but admittedly I don't really know what I'm doing :p

In the screenshot you will see lots of very old scripts, this was mainly for myself at the time for reference.  A proper version of this would only include up to date and useable scripts.
