[map editing] MESSAGE WHILE INGAME

Recommended Posts

Hey all, a question for all the map makers!!

While i was editing my custom map, i thought would be nice if a message at the start welcomes the players, as i saw many maps with this add (such as L.A.Z. Top vs Button and many others)

Problem is i dont know how to do it!

Hope someone can help me!!

greetings

Forgot to mention im talking about RA2 Yuris revenge! :)

Not sure if this is the same as in TS, but with TS maps you add your text under [Tutorial] 1=welcome to my map. 2=destroy enemy. Etc. U can insert that under ini editing in final alert or just add it in map file. Then use any event as a trigger event and trigger action 11 and parameter your text #. But thats for TS/final sun. not sure its the same for ra2 but i doubt its much different

RA2 is different indeed. Messages are read from a string table file, which can be edited by XCC mixer. but there is a general problem: there is only one string table file in the game, so you have to edit the whole thing and add it to your map to make it work. I don't know if the [Tutorial] thing still works, but I never saw it in any mission.

Fow who wants to know how i did it:

open Final alert > file > trigger editor 

New trigger, new event (choose 13 Elapsed Time...), New action (choose 11 Text Trigger...), and finally in parametric value u write the message

      I want to make a Map that is totally Symmetrical.
      The thought had occurred, to try to use a Bitmap as an Import.
      Problem is, how do I export the Map as a Bitmap to then copy and flip it and so on.
      Also, would this even work, or would I confuse FA2.
      I just want to speed up Map Making, so is there a quicker way?

      I have spent several hours looking into making Mines that Spawn Gems.
      Based on how popular the idea is, but how difficult it can be to find the information, I'm putting this here.
      In my search for this, I've found several ideas, but no solid guaranties saying that something definitely works.
      Important Notes:
      Take into consideration, that I'm making a Map with Modified INI Data, and not an actual MOD.
      The reason for this is due to the Ore Mine Locations having Sand, and Ore being difficult to visually see.
      Also, the Ore spawns too slowly for the Map, meaning matches end in Stagnant Out Of Money scenarios.
      This means that players are throwing Para-Drops at one another to try and gain the advantage.
      The Match always Disconnects before a winner is found.
       
      Idea 01 - Changing Ore into Gems
      I tried the idea of calling 'Tiberiums' different names.
      So taking 'Riparius' and swapping it with 'Cruentus' and this yielded no results.
      So I'm currently exploring the idea of Taking Ore and redefining its Image so that it looks like Gems.
      Problem with this is, I'm making a Custom Map, so this is not likely to work so well either.
      Idea 02 - Making a Dummy Object/Unit/Building that can Spawn Gems
      Credits: Lin Kuei Ominae from PPMSite
      URL for Thread: https://ppmforums.com/topic-47543/is-there-any-way-to-make-ore-drill-spawn-gems/
      This is the Code that was mentioned in the post.
      [building] ActiveAnim=dummy [dummy] LoopCount=-1 TrailerAnim=gemspawn [gemspawn] MaxXYVel=25.0 MinZVel=25.0 Elasticity=0.0 Bouncer=yes TiberiumSpawnType=GEM01 TiberiumSpreadRadius=3 ;0-9 possible The issue with this is, to do this requires a MOD, and as such can't be done in a Map directly*.
      *That is assuming that you're not using additional tools outside of FA2.
      If you were really clever and extremely determined, you could in theory take this Data and manually add it into a Map.
      Though that is a lot of work, and may yield results that are open to change as CnCNet RA2YR is Updated.
       
      So that's what I found relating to the Topic, but not much of an answer as far as Map Creation goes.
      If/When an Admin of CnCNet reads this, I would propose the idea of CnCNet Staff placing some items into the general Updates.
      Effectively, to allow Modified Maps to have more variety, it would be nice if specific assets were available out-of-the-box.
      For example: Modified Sniper Animations (Sandbags) and Tech-Building Buildup Animations.
      While normally, these would have no effect in Normal Maps, this would allow Modified Maps to have appropriate Animation Data.
      Also things like Cameos and new Units would be nice, again inactive in Vanilla Maps, but available for Modified Map Creators to play with.

      Having an issue installing the RA2 CnCnet file. Keeps giving me this issue. If I hit ignore, it will install, but then game crashes when I try to start a match.

      Hey could anyone help me out? Im trying to get the YR CnCNet launcher working, but I keep getting this pop up (see the first uploaded image). I have ran it as an administrator and still nothing. Things to note about my game and setup:
      Windows 10 computer with Geforce RTX 2070, Driver version 461.92, and an Intel i7 Game Purchased off of Origin I deleted everything in _Installer/directx/redist except for DSETUP.dll, dsetup32.dll, and DXSETUP.exe to get the game to install properly File is set to Full Control Game launcher icon has the administrator icon on it already tried to load it with all anti-virus software offline I don't believe this could be a connection issue because Tiberian Sun CnCNet runs fine.
