SOC Level changers

Postby the_marked_one on 20 May 2012 14:40

I have relocated some of the level changers in soc and also added some new ones, all tested fine in the game (they work and display the correct name etc) however one strange thing i discovered was when i copied the new level changer from for eg alife_107_military before and after into a new text document and compared the two with winmerge the original would be displayed in the correct format:

; cse_abstract properties
section_name = level_changer
name = exit_to_bar_01

; cse_alife_object properties
game_vertex_id = 1545

custom_data = <<END
[pt_move_if_reject]
path = mil_way_if_reject_to_ros
END

dest_level_name = L05_Bar

But the new changer was not it came out like this (although shows fine in the alife file)

copying straight from that text file to here also corrected the format so whats going on why the incorrect format showing in the text file as the original was fine

I will add that this only occurs when copying from my modified alife_l07_military file and and pasting into a new text file, all of the other alife files i have altered show in the correct format when copied and pasted, just like to know why its doing it really and if it is an issue i need to resolve/how to resolve it, whilst im here maybe someone can explain what a dest_graph_point is, the new level changers i pulled from an amk mod to save time running round getting co ordinates so the dest_graph_point of new changers is from that amk mod

dest_graph_point is level changers target in this case,and is located on bar level

About your "copy-paste format corruption" problem, the_marked_one, I guess it may be due to a number of reasons, one of which being the format difference between the text editors that you're using, or the original text document wasn't set to "wrap." Frankly, it's actually an interesting situation that you're having and difficult to judge from away without being at the computer that's affected. Are you copying files between two computers, or is it on the same PC?
Have you tried using Notepad++ if it's not what you are using? It seems during transfer break points are not being transferred properly, though I'm not professional on word processing and such, just trying to guess.

Also, btw, saw your other question as well, about the dest_graph_point;
dest_graph_point is a "count-point" at the given destination. As seen, it is mostly given two values in the game, either start_actor_02 or start_actor_01 and they act as a point of the emergence of the actor on that (destination) location. Only minimal differences in the practice, you can experiment by changing/alternating the values between 01 and 02 and observing the results by yourself, such as: dest_graph_point = start_actor_01 or dest_graph_point = start_actor_02.
