Miscompiled scripts


CamDawg

Recommended Posts

Started a project to try and restore the scripts that were compiled with missing symbolic references. I'm breaking them into four categories as I go: solid, probable, no idea, and scroll.ids. The latter gets its own category because a) there's a lot and b) they may or may not work without a symbolic reference (need to investigate). Progress so far:

OK, ignore the first post. This has got the good stuff now. For the multiple line matches, we used the bigg's \n and \t regexp hack (hence %tab% and %lnl% etc.).

 

Dragons cast a spell on themselves in response to a enemies casting death fog, incendiary cloud, or cloudkill. Spell is paired with a wing buffet, so presmably it's a zone of sweet air effect.

Many spellcasting scripts have two missing stat checks in an OR block prior to casting dispel magic. Based on the other checks in the block, they appear to be checking for stoneskins or improved haste. (Common example is OR(5) StateCheck(LastSeenBy(Myself),STATE_HASTED) StateCheck(LastSeenBy(Myself),STATE_BLESS) StateCheck(LastSeenBy(Myself),STATE_DRAWUPONHOLYMIGHT)

Far and away the most comon issue was creatures trying to turn into enemies with a missing allegiance in the trigger. Triggers were all OR(3) Allegiance(Myself,GOODBUTBLUE) Allegiance(Myself,NEUTRAL) Allegiance(Myself,0). Last one is, I believe, EVILBUTBLUE.

There are still a number of missing IDS symbols, particularly in spellcasting scripts. However, these seem to be the only ones I can confidently say that these are definitely the missing symbol. For the others, I believe a new OBC component, "Speculative AI Script Fixes", is in order. For example, the Unseeing Eye has a 'have x, cast x' block where both the trigger and action entries are missing. The only spell it has memorized that is not already scripted is Horrid Wilting. A good guess, but not one of the standard to which we're holding core fixes. :( I'll post more on the speculative fixes as I have them.

Dragons cast a spell on themselves in response to a enemies casting death fog, incendiary cloud, or cloudkill. Spell is paired with a wing buffet, so presmably it's a zone of sweet air effect.

I had a long response, but I must have never posted it. Vacation and stuff.

 

IIRC, the wing buffet spell already does sweet air. Hence the removal of the sweet air ApplySpell() (or at least, that's the conclusion I came to).

Yeah, confirmed, wing buffet includes a zone of sweet air effect. Those ApplySpell(0) calls are just removed now.

 

OK, one more of these should be moved into core fixes. When the party escapes the opening dungeon, the CW-Irenicus-Imoen cutscene ensues in the Promenade.

Blue dragons have an extra spell being forced after their breath attacks. It appears to be a leftover from a copy-and-paste from the green or red dragon scripts.

In the case of blue dragons, the breath attack itself does the damage and the 'extra' forced spell is unnecessary.

The green dragon combat script is missing a spell call between dragon fear and a wing buffet. Red and blue dragons have similar sequences, and use the spell in between to lower resistance to their particular breath attack (blues lower electrical resistance, reds lower fire resistance). There is no way to reduce poison resistance, so the call is simply removed.

Gauths should be using more spells/abilities (several missing calls), but their script is entirely unique. Possible replacements would either cause them to simply cast two or three spells a round, or expand their abilities. Neither seems a logical fit, so nothing is altered.

Aurumach Rilmani's script: it's missing a spell between a full heal and a lesser restoration. First thought was that it might be something to dispel any spell effects, but it uses Mirror Image and True Sight and might end up simply clearing its own beneficial effects. Left alone for now.

And speaking of generic mage scripts... several of them had incomplete 'if I have spell X memorized, cast it' blocks. Due to the number of scripts of this type, they can be reconstructed with a fair degree of confidence.

One of Melissan's scripts for the ToB finale, it was missing a call to a big, high-level spell (tracked by the MelissanBigSpell3 variable). Her other 'MelissanBigSpell3' options included Comet and Bigby's Crushing Hand, so Dragon's Breath was selected for the missing spell.

Actaully, Gauths and Beholders should cast multiple spells a round.

But gauth's don't really have all that many specials in PnP, compareatively; i think they have 4 eyes.

 

Let me go reference the page... http://www.coryj.net/CoreRule/corerule.php...=MM/DD03808.htm

 

Cause Serious (existing), Paralyzation (existing), Cone of Cold, Repulsion, Lightning bolt (existing, IIRC), Repulsion, Dweomer Drain.

 

It would REALLY be cool for Dweomer Drain gave attack to be thier favorite. It's their raison d'etre.
