Re: Semi-competent port of allied counterstrike campaign

sorry for being super late to the party here, but in response to Matt: I have zero clue how this whole Github thing works with huge projects like OpenRA (I just use a personal repo at https://github.com/BooooB159/OpenRA-Maps mainly for backup), so I really don't feel competent to contribute in an of...

Semi-competent port of allied counterstrike campaign

Dear community, I recently finished porting all Allied missions from the Counterstrike expansion to Lua, and I thought I could share them here. A few caveats: -all of them should play fine right now, which may change with subsequent releases. -I suck at Lua and programming in general, so there will ...

Access debug menu

Dear all,

a simple question for today: To test my missions it would be extraordinarily helpful to access the map debug menu (https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/issues/10157), but so far I am too dumb to activate it. Could someone point out to me what I would have to do?

Season's Greetings,

Seth

thanks for alle the corrections, I will post a refined version soon, putting that into account. Concerning the last part: That "player" is indeed a leftover from the mission I got the code from, it has been fixed. I am aware of the IRC, but I prefer the forums - it just seems more orderly to me, and...

ok, so after bugging the whole forum for weeks with questions, I will give something back. (wall of text incoming) I am a pretty experienced mapper for the SAGE C&C games, meaning coding missions with hardcoded predefined triggers. When I learned about OpenRA and its sheer endless opportunities it p...

Nevermind, got it to work on a different map :)

EDIT: and now also on the original one. Thank you all for your help!

as far as I can see there, a new weapon (I looked at "TankNapalm" in the example as it is not defined in the original game files) is just defined under "Weapons" and then assigned to an actor. I did exactly that: GNRL: UpdatesPlayerStatistics: MustBeDestroyed: ProximityCaptor: Types: Infantry Detect...

thanks a lot, I just realised that I have absolutely no clue how this YAML thing works - back to the drawing board.

As for the weapon: It was intended as a placeholder.
Is it possible to create entirely new weapons in map.yaml (with a new name) or do I have to modify an existing one?

Volkov was not made for walking

Hello community, I tried to recreate Volkov for use in missions, modifying "gnrl". So far I can start my map with this actor in it, but it crashes every time it moves with the error message being "Exception of type `System.InvalidOperationException`: Can't find Move in voice pool." Shooting while st...

I have done further research since posting this, and I'm inclined to consider this an error in the compiler. There is an "end"-tag in the last line, just not where the program seems to expect it. Another example: another map below crashes if I don't put the "=" in the last line, even though this is ...

Map crashes

Dear community, it's me again, probably with a similarly easily fixable problem, but I cannot find the solution. My custom map crashes with the following error in its Lua script: Fatal Lua Error: Error parsing rollingthunder.lua. Reason: [string "rollingthunder.lua"]:245: 'end' expected (to clos...

Play button grayed out on custom map

Dear community, as the title suggests: When trying to play a specific map I made myself, the play button in OpenRA (release 20171014) is grayed out, rendering me incapable to play it. Related observations: -it opens fine in the map editor -it is my oldest map, originally made somewhere in 2014/2015,...
