[Help] L2 Adrenaline Scripting Questions

8 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm a powershell guy and know almost nothing about any other languages. As such, i'm having some trouble with various things when trying to understand the scripts I've seen. the syntax used makes my teeth itch, but maybe that's just cause it's unfamiliar atm. Some questions to start off: 

 

Is the language used based on another language that has online help readily available?

  I'm thinking something along these lines:
     https://ss64.com/ps/

Is there a list of loops that are available?

  Like this:

    https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/PowerShell/Loops

Can you populate variables and use them in other parts of a script? If so, can I get an example of this?

These are the ones that are burning a hole in my brain atm, and I'm sure i'll have a TON more at some point, but anything else one would suggest? I know about this page but it made very, VERY little sense to me as there don't seem to be any real working examples i can tinker with:

[edit] sorry, hit reply without thinking, will edit from here out. [/edit]

 

and another one:

Engine.DlgSel('Buff Me');

 

in that ^, is Buff Me strictly a string or can you reference a variable there? is there any difference in using " " vs. ' ' ?

 

can you pull an NPCs unique identifier with a command of some kind?

 

is there an interactive shell that can be used? or is it strictly "Run a Script" ?

is this the assignment of a variable? 

  var live: TL2Live;

 

    does the above mean:

    variable name = live

    variable contents = all information contained within TL2Char, Npc, User, and Pet?

 

if you have say, 5 different functions that you want to trigger depending on an event of some kind, how would you go about doing that?

 

if i wanted to create an equivalent to the following completely made up function, how would it be written in this language?

Function Get-DatAss {
    $stabs = get-characterinfo -properties skillname,skillid,range | where { $_.skillname -like "*blow*" -or $_.skillname -like "*stab*"}
    function Invoke-Stabs {
       foreach ($stab in $stabs) {
         Use-Skill -skillid $stab.skillid
       }
    }

Do {
  $target = get-targetinfo -properties *
  Move-To $target.location
}
Until ($target.distance -lt $stab.range)

Invoke-Stabs

}

Get-DatAss

powershell is a task automation and configuration management framework for windows. it's built on .net and is designed to allow IT Operations folks like myself to do an awful lot of things on a very large number of remote servers, automate day to day administration duties, deployments, service manipulations, event log querying, sql querying, and, on occasion, start all my IG and OOG clients for me as i'm not a fan of repetitive tasks. :)

 

oh, and thanks for the links.

so, couple things, Powershell IS an object oriented language.

https://powertoe.wordpress.com/2014/04/26/you-know-powershell-is-an-object-oriented-language-right/

 

having said that, you're right, i don't understand classes and methods. having said THAT, i don't learn by reading something. most of the time, when i run across something i dont understand in a book, screwing around with it wont really help, i need explanations/directions. i have to see something i want to do and then work through getting it done and having my questions answered is absolutely necessary to figure things out. 

if you don't want to be that resource, np, i get it, n00bs suck.

What would help me more than anything else is if someone could try to recreate that function i posted in whatever way would be necessary to make it work so i can see how the process works in this language.

So, if i wanted a dagger-bot to "know" when their target is facing away from them, how would i access that info and use it in a script? im fairly good with looping logic so a lot of what i see i can mostly understand, but i've no idea how to "discover" what i'm looking for. 

I understand that this is an object oriented language. in powershell we use objects as well, so im also familiar with objects that have properties, and sub-properties and such, and powershell is built on .net which also uses methods and classes, but i've never been able to properly use them because i dont know how to find what methods are associated with what classes and how to know what class i'm even looking for to do what i'm trying to do.


example:

  Engine.MoveTo(155365, -114559, -1625);
  Engine.CancelTarget;
  Engine.MoveTo(154269, -113957, -1604);
  Engine.MoveTo(152599, -113547, -1658);
  Engine.MoveTo(152072, -113343, -1626);
  Engine.MoveTo(151519, -112861, -1999);
  Engine.MoveTo(151244, -112937, -2124);
  Engine.MoveTo(151203, -112241, -2287);
  Engine.MoveTo(153632, -110383, -2675);
  Engine.MoveTo(154994, -107157, -2697);
  Engine.MoveTo(155599, -105710, -2755);
  Engine.SetTarget(31544);               

how do i know what methods are associated with "Engine." and is "Engine." always available? do i need to load anything to access it? like 

var
item: TL2Item;

or something similar?
