Yeah, its just one of those things you need to learn in the first week on the HLP forums.

Re: Shivan Intention Theories
Trashman uses his own special version of the tables, so you've got to take all comparisons he makes with a grain of salt.

public Ship makeABox(int noOfRightAngles){
...
if(fighterbay<normalfighterbay){
  while(!ridiculous){
  beams ++;
  turrets ++;
  armour ++;
  engines ++;
 }
}
...
}

:nervous:

Eh? I havn't touched the flags on the beams (I did change the fire delay a bit and hte damage on the slashers, but I havn't touched the flags!).. Strange...

AS for you:

public MakeStupidRant (char victimname)
{
    if (if ship != smooth OR ship != organic) OR (invent reason)
      {
         if (modeler = TrashMan)
            {
              printf(LotsOfUseless****);
              RunFunction (Ignore reason);
             }
            ELSE StandardCynicalReply;
          }
}

And we're expected to believe that you own the only copy of FS2 which came with different flags on all the weapons? :p

Might explain a thing or two if you do I suppose. :)


Oh and while we're at it your code won't compile :p

I hope you mean Kara :nervous:

I have similar sentiments that I could go on over, but I'm avoiding it specifically because we're starting to see the same childish behavior that has caused any number of threads concerning Trashman's views of the FS universe that have caused more thread lockage than I need to dredge up.

Re: Shivan Intention Theories

Nothing wrong with Aldo's. It's just a single method from a program that defines the Ship object and other variables it uses elsewhere.

Where as Trashman has mixed up assignment and equivalence testing and gotten his brackets completely mixed up. He's probably not a coder so I wouldn't expect him to get it right but unless he's using a language I'm not familiar with his code simply won't work.

Kara, unless there is a new function in C++ that doesn't require ; and it's called ... I doubt it will compile. :p

Re: Shivan Intention Theories
Aldo's code is perfectly valid C++ syntax.  The only lines that aren't function declaration (the first) or conditionals are the four incrimenters, which are all properly semicolon terminated.

Which denotes that this is an incomplete code fragment not an actual working routine.

Trashmans code on the other hand is a full routine.

Not a very good one though. You can't comment on whether or not a code fragment will compile or not because it's not what the program sees when you click the compile button anyway :p

I'm sorry that my interpretation of some of FS2 numbers doesn't match yours..and prolly never will. The thread lockage therein was not of my making..nor was the childish behaviour..

Nope.. you should check on external classes and calling of functions..But I cofess, I do lack " " while printing text. :D

Re: Shivan Intention Theories
1) You've missed the brackets around your if functions on several occassions.
2) You've used (modeler = Trashman) instead of (modeler == Trashman) which has the effect of setting the modeler variable to Trashman regardless of what it was.
3) OR (invent reason) simply won't work. You've called a function with two variables with no comma between them. You need to get rid of that space before it would work in C++ or Java. I doubt Visual Basic or any other language I don't know would let you get away with that either.
4) You've made that above mistake more than once too.
5) ELSE StandardCynicalReply won't work either. That's a variable not a function. You simply can't call a variable like that it doesn't mean anything.

And that's just what I spotted in a minute or two. But anyway let's remove the ambiguity. What language was that meant to be in?
