Functional WEIDU

Recommended Posts

Stupid question from a newbie: could you separate out this new functionality into a meta-tool that would translate your new user-readable stuff into raw Weidu-code, and then distribute that generated Weidu code as a way to reduce installation overhead?

 

I more or less did that in my user-scripting land: I have a "C" style preprocessor that parses a BAF file ( with extra #includes, #defines, etc.) and generates a .BAF file as output, that I then hand off to Weidu for compiling. It's not a perfect solution but it does 90% of what I want, and doesn't pollute the Weidu language namespace with a different model.

 

Even more cool would be something that would take an existing Weidu script and reverse-engineer it back into user-readable stuff. I don't do anything but AI scripting, but I can say if I were ever willing to take on modding, the stuff you have proposed is far more accessible than the raw data. I may be a good coder (I hope so, I get paid to do it), but I really don't relish grokking other people's Weidu ugliness to learn how to do basic modding.

 

Yes, I'm lazy. It's part of not having a lot of free time to work with.

The slowness is not due to the extra abstraction, but the unrolled weidu it produces. If speed was really an issue, extending weidu directly is the only way to go.
