Script Compatibility

I have validated the compiler by checking the XML generated by MSCI and X-Studio are an exact match, so you can be confident it won't break your scripts. I've tested all the scripts in all the games/mods listed below:
    Vanilla X3 Reunion v2.5
    Vanilla X3 Terran Conflict v3.11
    Vanilla X3 Albion Prelude v1.0 and v2.0
    X3TC/X3AP X3 Rebalance Mod (XRM) v1.25b
    X-Tended Terran Conflict (XTC) v1.2a
    Pirate Guild 3 v1.59
    ImprovedRaces v15.31
    Improved Races 2.0 v1.08
    Factory Complex Constructor [4.02]
    MARS Fire Control v5.24
    Cycrow Cheat Package v1.62
    Currently incompatible with X2 - The Threat


Running From Extracted Game Data

If you want to run the program on a computer without X, you just need to copy the following files into a folder and select that as your 'game folder' in Preferences. (Make sure you put them in their proper subfolders: 'mov', 't' and 'types')
    t\0001-L044.pck (or .XML) (Main language strings)
    mov\00044.pck (or .XML) (Speech clip definitions)
    types\sounds.pck (or .TXT) (Sound effect definitions)
    types\videos.pck (or .TXT) (Video clip definitions)
    types\TDocks.pck (or .TXT)
    types\TFactories.pck (or .TXT)
    types\TShips.pck (or .TXT)
    types\TLaser.pck (or .TXT)
    types\TShields.pck (or .TXT)
    types\TMissiles.pck (or .TXT)
    types\TWareE.pck (or .TXT)
    types\TWareN.pck (or .TXT)
    types\TWareB.pck (or .TXT)
    types\TWareF.pck (or .TXT)
    types\TWareM.pck (or .TXT)
    types\TWareT.pck (or .TXT)


Adding Your Own Custom Commands

You must create a Custom Syntax File called "Custom.Syntax.txt" and place it within same the folder as X-Studio.exe. It must contain one of the blocks shown below for each new command you wish to add. (You must also ensure there isn't a trailing CRLF on the last line of the file). Each line is explained below:

Code:
CUSTOM
X2,X3R,X3TC,X3AP
111
NONE
$0 interrupt with script $1 and priority $2
RefObj
Script Name
Var/Number
-------------- END DEFINITION ---------------


    Line1: Command group - must be CUSTOM
    Line2: Compatibility - can be combination or all of X2, X3R, X3TC and X3AP
    Line3: Command ID - must be unique. See the X2 editor (page 2000) for a full list. (NB: 250->260 are reserved by X-Studio for macros)
    Line4: MSCI references URL - must be NONE
    Line5: Syntax of the command, where each $x represents a parameter. Also note that:

      • The hash created from the syntax of each command must be unique, only words and operators are compared, spacing is ignored
      • You must not include the reference operator -> or return operator = in command text, however you can include = as a non-return operator
      • You must provide a space between each parameters markers ($x)
      • The order of parameters is defined by the order in which they're stored within the <codearray> section of an MSCI script
      • Do not include reserved words like start, if, while etc.
      • In order to display all commands when loading game data from older versions, parameter syntax names are hard-coded into X-Studio, so you must specify them in english and you can't invent new ones. Use 'Value' if you need to represent your own parameter type.

    Line6: Parameter syntax, in ascending order ie. $0, $1, $2, $3. Note this may be different to the order in which they are displayed in the syntax, where $1, $0, $2 is common.
    Line7: End marker - must be -------------- END DEFINITION ---------------


X-Studio will display a log each custom command loaded in the compiler output window when the program loads.
Successfully loaded commands will appear in the 'Custom Commands' group.
Commands will fail to load if the hash of their syntax is not unique or parameter syntax is unrecognised.


Source Code

LATEST RELEASE: v1.01
RELEASE DATE: 24th February 2013




Instructions:
X-Studio is written in C and was built using Visual Studio 2008.
Solution contains 6 projects: Utilities, CustomControls, LogicLibrary, UserInterface, Resources and LogViewer.

Cool! I'll try it immediately.

Greetings,
ScRaT

EDIT: Unfortunately, I don't have X installed on my laptop (too weak), so I don't have the game executable installed, which seems to keep me from creating scripts (or doing anything at all - besides changing the preferences).
Would it be possible to make it not depend on the games executables, but only on the language files, types, etc.?

Btw: I use Windows 7 and so far (which isn't very far Smile ) it looks good.

I see, so you have the language file XML and the type file TXTs in a folder but you don't have the game itself installed? I just switched over from using that system to using live data at the weekend Smile Figured people would think that was crazy.

If you're willing to use the appropriate sub-folders I could change the check from X3-TC.exe to:

t\0001-L044.XML
types\TDOCKS.TXT
types\TFACTORIES, LASER, MISSILE, SHIELDS, SHIPS, TWAREB, E, F, M and T

As a work around you could just put an empty text file called "X3TC.exe" into a folder and arrange the files above into the correct 't' or 'types' sub-folder. That would trick it. movies and sound wouldn't work, but i dont think it'd crash.

Of course! I waited for this, since the Exscriptor development is somewhat halted at the moment.

I edited my above post.

Congratulations to the release. Thumb up The program looks really promising. Also thank you for including support for other languages than english. If you don't already have someone, I would offer my help in translating from english to german.

Some Feedback:

It seems your program cannot read from cat/dats. Which means you have to extract the types and t files to the appropriate folders to the game's main directory. Also it only accepts the compressed format .pck. I always get the same error when loading the types and language main file(s):

Code:
Error Index 0, ID 21: 'loadFile() There was a system error while opening 'C:\Programme\EGOSOFT\X3TC\types\TDocks.pck'.  Cannot open file - access denied or file locked.'

Error Index 1, ID 1: 'loadGameFile(..) has encountered an IDS_FILE_LOAD_SYSTEM_ERROR error (ID: 0021) in Game Files.cpp, line 185'


It would be good, if the program either can read from cat/dats or would also accept the files in .txt format.
Also when opening the new script window and clicking on the blank, black field the program crashes immediately.

I'm using Windows XP Home 32 bit, btw.

@X2-Illuminatus : Thanks, I was planning to use Google Translate but a human being would be much better..

It does load the files from cat/dat:

If "C:\Programme\EGOSOFT\X3TC\types\TDocks.pck" isn't found then it will search the cat/dat for the file. Is there a real "types" folder in your X3TC installation folder? Can you try temporarily renaming it to <something.types> and see if that fixes the problem?

I only put this support in over the weekend so it'll still be buggy - I'll look into it.

mr. bear

Ideed. Sorry for the confusing. Works now. My somehow messed up and incomplete installation caused the problem. (The files are there, but in different cat/dats than in the original game and the first cat/dat was missing).

Unfortunately now I have the problem X2-Illuminatus described, since I have all game data completely unpacked (it is looking for the 0001-L044.pck, but I only have a 0001-L044.xml).

This weekend I can try it with a complete installation of X3:TC.

Greetings,

I should have expected people to have a more varied setup of the game files. i'll change the way it reads the game data so it loads any unpacked .txt, .xml files first, then searches for packed .pck files.

You could just use DS's x3vfs library? I have some C# source that already handles the reading and management of these files using DS's libraries.

I can probably provide some assistance on that front, I am currently happily using them for Changeling and have designed a C# layer to provide my own VFS view of the game data. If you wish I could send you the classes relating to that layer and provide you with support to help you understand either my classes or DS's stuff?
