[4.1] End of Text Action --> warps

Post by dale_coop » Sun Feb 03, 2019 1:17 pm

For some who need that functionality... When a text is finished, it execute a warp.
It doesn't existing currently, but we can hijack the "Open Shop" end of text action, because it's not used in the current 4.1 (no code behind that action).


THE EASY WAY (NESMaker 4.1.3)
With a ZipScript patch:

1/ Download the ZipScript file from here: [url][/url]

2/ On your scrolling game project, select the "Project > Run Project Script" menu:

Image

And select the "EndofTextAction_OpenShopWarps.zip" you just downloaded. Validate and after confirming the warnings message, you should have the patch installed:

Image

3/ Set your Text to use the end of action :

Image

4 / Set your warp In / Out in your screen infos.

Now, it should work, after the text box is closed, it warps.
If you have error to if the patch doesn't work, you could try the normal manual way.



THE NORMAL MANUAL WAY
Doing manually the modifications in some scripts:

1/ Add a new user variable "openShopWarps" (initial value 0) in the "Project Settings > User Variables".

2/ Duplicate the "HandleTextBox.asm" script as "HandleTextBox_openShopWarps" (for example), assign it to your "Handle text Box" element in the "Project Settings > Script Settings":

Image


3/ modify the "HandleTextBox_openShopWarps", line 319, right after the "notEndItem:" line (but before the "CMP #_MORE" line), like this:

Code: Select all

notEndItem:
;; begin check for warps -->> : 
	CMP #_ENDSHOP
	BNE notEndShop
	;; is an end "Open SHOP"
	LDA #$01
	STA openShopWarps 	;; we set a variable that be used to execute the warp when the text disappears
	JMP EndText
notEndShop:
;; <<-- end check for warps
;; The rest of the normal code from here:

	CMP #_MORE

4/ Still modifying the "HandleTextBox_openShopWarps", line 657, add this script (this execute the warp):

Code: Select all

;;;; THIS WOULD WARP YOU TO A SCREEN AFTER TEXTBOX.
	LDA openShopWarps 
	BEQ +
	LDA #$00
	STA openShopWarps
	LDA #$00
	STA newGameState
	LDA warpMap
	STA currentMap
	CLC
	ADC #$01
	STA temp
	GoToScreen warpToScreen, temp, #$02
	LDA #$00
	STA playerToSpawn
	LDX player1_object
	DeactivateCurrentObject
	LDA #$01
	STA loadObjectFlag
	LDA mapPosX
	STA newX
	LDA mapPosY
	STA newY
	+
	

5/ Set your Text to use the end of action :

Image

6 / Set your warp In / Out in your screen infos.

Voilà... it should work, after the text box is closed, it warps.



Small Addition (optional)

To prevent the user to rapidly press "B" and skip all the text box (it will not warp), you can add those lines at the beginning of your b_crete_melee (or b_activate_textNPC) script:

Code: Select all

	LDA textboxHandler  ;; check if the text is already displayed
	AND #%11000000 
	BEQ +
	RTS
	+
	;; from here, the normal script...:

I did this the stupid way in 4.0.11 for cutscenes with text. Since by default text stops all object updates, I just spawned the player above a warp tile and blocked off the rest of the screen with solid tiles. So when the text went away, gravity would make the player fall on the warp tile and warp to a new screen.

But this is clearly the better method XD

But you did it, with the limitations of the built in fonctionalities, the result was impressive. It’s the most important.
As Joe says, NES dev is just limitations, compromises and tricks ;)

I updated the script because I forgot to set back to 0 the variable on warp:

Code: Select all

	LDA #$00
	STA openShopWarps

FOR NESMAKER 4.1.3 - 4.1.5


1/ In the "Project Settings > User Variables", add a new variable named "TextIDScreen" with initial value "0".


2/ Make a new script named "HandleTextBox_openShopWarps.asm", with that:

Code: Select all

HandleTextBox:

;; textboxHandler
 ; 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 - 0
  ;7 = Textbox is active.
   ;    6 = Black box is being created, will then create text.
    ;        5 = Attribute update to black.
     ;           4 = text is being created.
      ;             = loop to 5 if more text.
       ;             3 = Black box is being created, with then restore NT
        ;                 2 = Attributes to main NT
         ;                     1 = restore NT
          ;                          0 = check for "more" text.

3/ Assign the "HandleTextBox_openShopWarps.asm" script to the "Handle Text Box" element in the "Projet Settings > Script Settings".


4) Make some NPC monster/objects and put them on the screen


5) Set your Texts, for the screen warps. If you want a warp to Screen 16 (X=0, Y=1) then set your "Text 16"... and a warp to Screen 25, set your "Text 25" (X=9,Y=1)... using the text index corresponding the screen index you want.

And for each Text you set, chose the "Open Shop" action (currently not used so we will use it for the warp to the textindex screen).

6) Add all those warp Text to a Text Group:

And assign the Text Group to your main screen:

(don't care about the checkbox on that screen, it's an old screen)

Now, the multi warps should work.

Is there a way to make an end animation warp to screen? I'm wanting to do this for a cut-scene I'm making in my game.

I think there is a  « Warp to screen » already to end of animation... or I misremember it?

Yeah, I just found it a minute ago. Glad the NESmaker team already knew what we were gonna do with that, lol. For real though, I'm glad it already exists.

It's too late for me to keep troubleshooting this, but at the off chance that someone knows what's going on: this code has stopped working for me. Or maybe I didn't test it properly and it never worked. I'm not sure because it half works.

I have two NPC's with different warps, and one works while the other seems to change depending on where I place my player at the start of the game. I have no idea what could be causing the discrepancy. I have this same screen copy pasted elsewhere on the map, with different warp coordinates and the same situation happens. One NPC warps to the proper location, the other goes some where else, and it doesn't seem to matter if the screen that it goes to has a "warp in" location or not, it just loads a couple different screens and sticks me in the wall on the edge of the screen.

-

I just tried switching the physical locations of the NPCs on the screen. No other changes. And both warps stopped working. The warp that used to work did send me to the proper location, but it acted like the "warp in" coordinates were not set and it booted me out and stuck me in the wall of another screen as usual.

It's possible that my nesmaker has developed a bug of some kind because I have been getting multiple random errors that seem to change without reason.

--
Edit:: One of my copy pasted screens started working, randomly as far as I can tell. This one is literally a copy paste of the screen with the broken warp, so I don't know why it's different. The screen that doesn't work is located at X0Y1, while the one that works is at X13Y13. I made another copy at X8Y1 with different warp coordinates and that one works as well, so it seems to be the X0 column that's causing problems? Hopefully it stays consistent now.
