Types in DarkEdit

Types in DarkEdit

Types in DarkEdit

I can't seem to find anything that teaches how to use types in DarkEdit.

I tried this:
type test

But it gives me an error.

RE: Types in DarkEdit

First of all, make sure you have turned on TYPE,DEFINE,GLOBAL extended syntax (edit>edit options>[editor options]tab) otherwise DB won't understand the additional darkedit commands. Note that GLOBAL extended syntax MUST be enabled as well as TYPE.

Then try this code:

      TYPE player_info

      DIMTYPE player_info,player,enemies(20)

      PRINT player.name$
      PRINT enemies(15).inventory#(2)

If you've turned on the options correctly darkedit will show you a dialog box [before it runs DB] telling you it has found the TYPE declarations. Click continue & DB should work as expected with the extended command sets.

Also there are some notes on the DIMTYPE notation hidden near the bottom of the darkedit.txt textfile.

hope this helps!
