You could also utilize weapon primary/secondary ammo icons, as well as weapon icons so that you only draw icons for the weapons/ammo in one place. You could then set the offsets of specific icons in their respective graphic files if you need to have the positions differ.


Wouldn't that cause ALL of the ininventory sprites to get drawn? That would sort of mess things up in that regard, wouldn't it?

No. The idea would be that since ininventory does equal to or larger than, you'd draw one icon per check. Going on the assumption that if you have at least, say 5 rounds loaded, the fifth bullet icon should be drawn. This is done for each number. Without the else's, the ininventories work independently instead of chaining and drawing the entire bar at that state in each block.

Put an "else" before every InInventory check after the first. That's how I made prestige icons work in my own mod. If all those graphics pile up like in Black & Grey, then you don't need the elses, as it'll only draw the sprites if you have X or more of the InInventory item.

Here's the thing though. It's not just one else. What if I need to do an else to the second one? And a third?

And so on and so forth. I'm trying to think this through logically, and i'm not seeing it. An example, please?

Sure! Here is the code I use in FragTrak to display the prestige medals. It'll only display the top level one you own.
Spoiler:


The WeaponPrestige items are given via ACS after checking a CVAR, if you're wondering.

It's me again.

The rest of the forum: dear god why doesn't he just go away


So i'm trying to make a bar to measure the airburst time on the grenade launchers and such in Hideous Destructor. However, I don't want a background image for the bar, and no matter what I do, whether it's putting in nullimage, a null TEXTURE or TNT1A0, a blacked out version of the bar appears in the extreme upper left corner of the screen, seemingly independent of the X and Y coordinates. What am I doing wrong here?

Code: Select allExpand view
InInventory AirburstCount,1
{
DrawImage "BPSIA0",30,190,center,40,40;
DrawBar "AIRBA0","null",AirburstCount,horizontal,interpolate(3),90,150;
}
else
{
DrawImage "BPSIB0",30,190,center,40,40;
}

Your back image must have the same dimensions as the front image. Try creating a Textures entry with no patches, with a canvas size equal to the size of the front image.

Already did that. No luck. It's still there. Also tried unchecking 'null texture'. Also no good.

Have you tried taking the image you used to make your full bar, make it completely blank, then give it the same offsets? Normally the TEXTURES thing should do exactly that, but it shouldn't hurt to try.

Yes, I already tried that too.

There's probably a more elegant way to do this now, but you'd do this by enclosing all the relevant parts of your status bar in an InInventory block. For example, this would show only if you had GreenArmor in your inventory:
Code: Select allExpand view
statusbar normal
{
   InInventory GreenArmor
   {
      [...]
   }
}

Yes, it works, and now I need some help so you can change the status bar between two types of grenades when equipped with an assault rifle with a grenade launcher the grenade status bar changes to grenade ammunition and when I change the weapon it again goes back to the previous statusbar

PS: sorry for my bad english

...I really need to write a tutorial on how to make 'zbarinfo' soon.

I mean, I can start making one but there's still things left unexplored.

But to give me a good refresher course, Weasel, you could point me to a mod of yours that I can convert for you and document along the way, which will be the perfect instrument for writing a tutorial down.
Unless someone beat met to the chase already.

Oh and, if you want some extra nifty features that have been floating in your head yet you couldn't do it with sbarinfo, do tell. :mrgreen:

I'll start off with a straight conversion, one to one, and then I'll add those extra ideas.
