[info] Big Maps & Add Players
« on: April 03, 2016, 12:03:39 AM »
I guess we had the info we needed already ;/ Dont look good.....

Map info:
Standard i 32x32, 64x64, 96x96 and 128x128.
        The minimap in the game will automatic fit it self to the size.

        The map can be any size you want, but max. 128x128.
        Just be sure that MTXM,SQN,OILM and REGN correspond to that size, or
        contains enough data to make a map, else you get an error. The
        x and y size has to be the same size, in fact no the don't, because
        the game will always make a map out of the y size. (looks like
        the x size is just fill ?)
        If the y size is off standard, the minimap in the game will
        default to 128x128, but the units movement on the map will correspond
        to the size, and so the white square, the fog of war thing will
        move as to a 128x128 map.
        The editor will make an error if you try to read an off standard map
        size.

Player Info:

Appendix E: "Unusable" 7 players.

This 7 players is not really in the game, so the can't be used as normal
players. However there are some use for them.
They don't work as passive computer, human or computer, if set to this
they just stand there, looking funny.

If set to rescue(active), you can rescue them, and the become you
units, whom you can control as normally.

If rescue(active) has a peon/peasant, he will only build a town hall
and x number of farm, depending of the number of peon/peasant he has, then
stop and do nothing.

If set to rescue(passive), you can rescue his units, and then control
them.

So if you are in need of more rescue players on your map, you can used
the  "unusable" 7 players.

Note : player 14 unit will never be displayed ?, but he's units IS on
the map, because you can't build were he's units would have been !.

Would be possible to make watchers from these 7 players?
No idea how to pass some steps on this way: to make proper map, to join the game with more than 8 players. Doubt that war2 supports more than 8 players, need to find and disable many checks even if more than 8 players are possible, even for players with no units.

I'm thinking maybe there is no code for those 7 players. So the best we could possibly use them for is orc or human for 2 races in a map which could be done. I posted screen shot and steps on how modify the map editor. Also posted the units and values to scan for each player. I will check farther into it just got done with an oil change on my truck.

Don't make me cry lol I'll be on shorty.

Maybe there was no AI setup?? Reread this part. Maybe we can get them as computer players for 8v7 lol?

If rescue(active) has a peon/peasant, he will only build a town hall
and x number of farm, depending of the number of peon/peasant he has, then
stop and do nothing.


----

In one of the editors you could have more then 8 already I think it was neutral unit. Hmm I might have found more players then he did. Let me check the other thread.

Ohh maybe I did hmmmm.
this causes a crash LOL!!! Look at all the units and the messed up colors.
176 = red
177 = blue
178 = blah and so on
after 191 you start getting different units (Nothing playable yet.)








Well so the map editor uses player 15 the last player available  map side at least.

8 bytes         8 player slots (0-7)
    7 bytes         "unusable" 7 player slots (8-14)
    byte            neutral (15)

    should be:

    0x02             passive computer
    0x03             nobody
    0x04             computer
    0x05             human
    0x06             rescue (passive)
    0x07             rescue (active)

    can also be:

    0x00             passive computer
    0x01             computer
    0x08 - 0xff      passive computer
