Re: time% wont work unless it equals 0?

That's because you don't know mathematics.

i wouldn't particularly say that this is provocative but it's not exactly hard to see how someone would take it that way.

%3 means modulus of 3, so the only possible results are 0,1 and 2

For example, %5 will give you possible results of 0,1,2,3 and 4

this is the explanation to your thread title.

while it's most common for the value of an expression that uses modulus to equal 0 you can use any value that's lower than the number you define (the reason it's lower than and not equal to is because "0 is 1 and 1 is 2 etc").


this for example would play for the first half of every 400 game ticks.

cmd is a remarkably shitty "official" standard that needs to be abandoned post haste.

i've made a thread about this years ago. if you perform a system restore and the restore point is older than the cmd the file will disappear.

stop using cmd.

Something buried in the docs that has JUST come up in the help section.

Hitoverride does not play nice with p2stateno in a hitdef. If hitdef uses P2stateno, anything with a hitoverride is completely immune to it (assuming it would override etc etc) If i'm overriding projectiles, and you hit me with a projectile that has p2stateno on it, the projectile will miss exactly as if i had nothitby = SCA active.

just for the record this information is false for the sctrl projectile; p1stateno and p2stateno is not disrupted there.

worst case scenario get the hard drive out of the pc and buy a usb adapter to read it

also get a portable hard drive. my last hard drive crashed over a year ago and i was lucky to salvage anything as the drive doesn't want to read.

i fortunately got everything but my sff and snd back and replacing those is minor compared to a years worth of code.

are you doing an accurate conversion?
is it custom?
original character?
original content?
ripping material?
color separation?
starting from scratch?
editing a base?
is it experimental?

length generally varies by how you answer these questions. original stuff usually takes more time than conversions.

at the end of the day it's not a contest. you're not gonna be penalized for "taking too long".

Re: Immunity to SuperPause?

the dumb thing with the pausemovetime and supermovetime setting is that (like helpers) it can only happen when they're initially spawned.

root characters are (obviously) spawned at the very beginning of the round so it's set then. the instant that same player is hit or triggers a pause the effect wears off.

you bypass both these things by having another helper trigger desired pauses and having another helper as armor.

Re: Statedef -2 vs Statedef -3

This is in the docs but

Statedef -3 read first. Doesn't get read in custom states
Statedef -2 read second on every tick
Statedef -1 read third.
Normal states
Helper states

Note that helpers have no access to state -3 or -2 unless you stupidly use helpertype = player. They only get access to -1 if keyctrl = 1 when helpertype is normal.

the only additional info outside of ^ this is that -1 is a required statedef. -2 and -3 are not required.

as an example if you wanted to break out of a custom state you would set a selfstate in -2. -1 and -3 will do nothing in this regard.

i personally didn't learn the differences between them through the docs and it took me quite some time to decipher them.

Infinite Rounds / "Nobody Wins" (Roundstate 4 Override)

the code that's supposed to extend a round can actually do the polar opposite if it's executed early; this will end the round early with no declared winner bypassing roundstate 4.

you're gonna wanna add ceil or floor to those multiplied variants to prevent debug errors; life values aren't mandated to be divisible by 5 or 10. i encountered this as i was setting up a poison-esque effect for one of my own projects and it failed to work against characters with odd values (just about everything "pots styled" for example).

edit: i'd actually advise completely refraining from dividing life values as a whole because of this.

chiming in to say that the above post is absolutely false in training mode.

in training mode if damage=2000 and lifemax=1000 gethitvar(damage) will return 2000.

this could be part of yet another formula to detect training mode.

training mode is weird.

override statedef 40 to instantly selfstate to statedef 0 if ailevel.

if you want the ai to jump specifically (during running for example), define those conditions under that same selfstate.

you're also gonna want to omit "anim" underneath "statedef 40" and define it as a changeanim underneath that selfstate.

i mean it kind of is practical to code it just involves what's documented as a glitch.

what you would do is make a helper with a massive attack clsn and give it a vaguely defined reversaldef.

[State ]

[State Drop Helper Targets]

the glitch is

1. with reversaldef your target never drops when you obtain it unless you use the targetdrop controller.
2. reversaldef works against hitoverride.

this allows that helper to use any target controller at will. so you could set up a targetstate here with trigger1=root,movehit=1 to your custom state and it would work even if you hit helper armor.

this is how i got cvsyamazaki's grab winpose to work.

1. sequential moves are not unlike throws. you either hit or miss. with this said you want to not use targetstate and instead use p2stateno with the hitdef. there is a hard programmed behavior that causes hitdefs with p2stateno to completely ignore your average super armor.

2. a lesser recommended alternative is to simply selfstate if p2stateno!=your custom state.

2. there is a way to "bypass" super armor but it requires a glitch and unorthodox execution.

3. there are various ways to code super armor.

it's because you put it in -3 with an assertive trigger.

you need to either not have an assertive trigger or algebraically code sine to normal add. the latter being more conventional for it wont ever wear off.

here's an example:


edit: apparently add works in conjunction with sinadd. even if this wasnt true it can be done algebraically which is why i encourage that over pre set expressions like sinadd.

example of that and how sine works:

sine 100 ranges -100 to 100 which for palfx would cause your character to darken. if you wanted to eliminate darkening you would sine 50 and add 50.


^ that would equate to this


the benefit of the former is it can be asserted indefinitely.
