Can someone point me out why my particle browser is empty? Look at the pic below.



There's particle system files (.PCF) inside csgo/materials/particles and csgo/particles (both possession and custom maps' particles). I rescanned for 'all' and 'csgo' mods and it's still empty. :'(

English:
I need help with this particle thingy for skill gfx and then, everyone can try actual rpg npc combat in csgo soon. It can be very difficult to defeat depending on pattern settings.

日本語: (Google Translated)
私はスキルgfxのためにこの粒子のおかげで助けを必要とし、誰もがすぐにcsgoで実際のRPGのnpcの戦闘を試すことができます。パターンの設定に応じて敗北することは非常に難しいことがあります。

Is it possible for you to add plugin that display map's console message as alert hint message to players?
You can also display translated message to those who are using translation feature.
The advantage of doing this is that, players can properly read map tips that is displayed at bottom mid.
Displaying them at the chat window makes it very hard for players to read since it's too distracting.

FFVII Ancient Temple's early part of stage 1 already proven this point where players could't read the console message since the zombies could've kill them as soon as they make a mistake in that roadmap area.

The alert hint message I've mentioned actually is the alert hint message that the zombie reloaded plugin use for the infection countdown. I had a look at franug edition of zr plugin's source, it use 'PrintCenterText' for alert type hint message.

Here's the function link

Tell me if you need flowchart for handling console message.

I had a look at how screenoverlay works since I can't use instructor hint entity to display boss info to individual player.
The reason why the texture is not animated is because there's two problems.

First one is the .vmt (material) configuration.
If you want to use the same special effect as the default ZombieReloaded's overlay, instead of using 'UnlitGeneric', you should use 'Refract' instead.

Like this one
Code: [Select]
File : humans_win_ps_s.vmt

"Refract"
{
"$model" 1
"$refractamount" "0"
"$bluramount" "0"
"$REFRACTTINT" "{50 50 150}"
"$REFRACTTINTtexture" "overlays/zr/humans_win_ps_s"
"$scale" "[1 1]"
}

Second is the transparency, take a look at the screenshots I've attached.
zombiereloaded's overlay when viewed without alpha channel (transparency), the background became all white, while yours become all black.
Being all black means it's going to block player's view.
I'm pretty sure your alpha channel is set to 8-bit due to anime character's outline color being white, so try to do the same thing to the background when you make a new one in the future.

誰も "env_instructor_hint"の使い方を知っていますか? サーバー "bosshp"と "shop quiz" "plugins"と同様に、個々のプレーヤーにテキストを表示することを想定しています。
私はhttps://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/L4D2_Level_Design/Instructor_Hintsに従ってそれを使用しようとしましたが、何のメッセージも表示されませんでした。 エンティティはCSGOで壊れていますか?

Does anyone know how to use "env_instructor_hint"? It's suppose to show text to individual player similar to server "bosshp" and "shop quiz" "plugins".
I tried using it according to https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/L4D2_Level_Design/Instructor_Hints but it didn't show any message. Is the entity broken in CSGO?

After messing around with vscripts, entities and sourcemod documentations, there's another room to improve entwatch.

1. Adding support for grabbing item configuration through map
Most of mappers usually need to create configuration file for EntWatch to hook their map special items.
Why not add a support where the EntWatch can hook the item in-game straight away? It can be done.

As a mapper, you just need to create an entity such as 'info_target' and give it a name that follows certain naming convention such as entwatch_(youritem1) and make your item button as it's parent.
After that, disable 'SmartEdit' in entity property and add custom keys and values. Those custom keys and values will follow the format of entwatch configuration file. And done.

Now, what the EntWatch should do would be searching for the entity that contains the name that follows the naming convention when the map is loaded or on new round. If the entity is found, grab the required keys and values. Validates the properties. Setup the usual item parameters. Then, grab it's parent entity and and register the entity id for usage control. Voila. Now EntWatch can directly grab item configuration itself from the map itself.

What's the advantage by doing this?
First, it would be giving mapper another method of adding the item configurations.
Second, which is the last one and the biggest advantage of all is that, by putting the item configurations directly inside the map, vscripts can also take advantage of it. Making this item configurations usable to vscripts and entwatch.

Updated:Now I'm not confident if the 'EntWatch' plugin can access an entity's custom key values. While I could create an entity with custom keyvalues using vscript, I couldn't read any entity's keyvalues with 'Vscript'. So, I'm not even sure if custom key values will be created when a map is spawn. Hence why. Someone need to test if custom key values will be created when the map spawns and SourceMod plugins can access it. If it's possible, a mapper can just create a vscript file to be used as item configuration and let item vscript to 'include' (load) the configuration script and then create an entity with custom keyvalues for SourceMod plugins to access. Else, bad luck.  :(

Updated: Shufen confirmes that plugins can read custom entity key values.


2. Overhead Item Countdown
Displaying item countdown on top of player's head.

In order to do this, you must first prepare textures to display the countdown. Then,create a function where it creates an 'env_sprite' on top of an item holder. Make the item holder as the parent. Then, you display the sprite. Done.

To animate the countdown, you need to kill the previous 'env_sprite' and create a new one which displays a new countdown number. Repeat it until the cooldown finish. You can't animate countdown using single 'env_sprite' due to its limitation.

That's all.

Hey guys, I made map scripts that can simulate RPG monster mechanics in CSGO. You no longer need to tweak monster settings through hammer editor. Just mess around with the configs, save and restart the game round.

Feel free to post your suggestions.

Scripts will be uploaded after finishing my map's prologue chapter's stages.

Latest Message from Me (4/10/2018):
Been wasting my days making main building brushes using hammer SDK. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE due to limitations of world brush.

Limitations
1) It can't handle complex shape (details and smooth shape) even with vertex manipulation. You will get invalid solid structure for the brushes.
2) Rotating complex brushes will make everything run out of position. You can't snap the vertices to hammer grid is one thing. The other is that, 30 degrees angled roof becomes way too complicated to make.

So, what I'm going to do is make 3D model of the building instead. Will inform you guys within few days if it works fine or not.

Purpose of Monster Script
To introduce new type of map known as "Raid" map for CSGO players. The map prefix pretty much gonna starts with "raid_".

Most of mmorpg players if not all, should know what a raid party is. For those who don't, it's a type of mission where a number of people attempt to defeat another number of people in PvP, or defeating large amount of monsters in PVE, or defeating powerful bosses. Familiar meaning would be beating very difficult dungeons with large number of players.

In a raid mission, you need tactics and coordinations between players to complete. The map that's involved in raid mission are usually large. There can be traps, requires players to separate to accomplish some of mission objectives,clearing enemies in an area and more.

So, what these monster scripts do is simulates monster mechanics in mmorpg. Making it a part of the raid system.

Components of Raid System:
1. Objective Scripts
2. Map Mechanics (Traps, Key for Doors and etc)
3. Player Scripts (Dodge, I-Frame and etc)
4. Item Scripts (Item Usage and Restriction)
5. Monster Scripts

Please don't compare it to co-op missions. Co-op mission is meant for SMALL number of players to complete while raid mission requires LARGE number of players to do so.

Features

1. Lesser Amount of Dynamic Entities
By using monster scripts, you can reduce the amount of DYNAMIC entities you're creating in the map. Making it lot more easy for you to add more entities since CSGO entity limit for dynamic entities (refers to entities that server needs to consider or check) is.. 2047. Seems alot? No no no. I didn't even include player's entities into the calculation yet. So, each player use 15 entity slots. 64 x 15 = 960. 2047 - 960 = 1087. Heck, that's almost half of the limit already which makes the amount of available slots is much mor lesser for mappers to use.

2. Simple Configurations
You no longer need to create too many stuffs for each type of boss or monster.
Everything has become simple by making a configuration script file to be used as a monster's settings.
Just create a new script folder for each type of monster settings you going to make and copy paste the template and mess around with the values.

3. Targeting System
No more trigger brushes. The script will deal with the targeting itself for both attacks and skills.
Searching for players within a distance? Attack player with highest damage? No problem. The system will do itself.

4. Orientation and Movement
With script, now the monster can point itself to it's target automatically. No rotating brush needed.
And, with one thruster, the script can also move in four directions. Forward, Backward, Left and Right*.

*Flying AKA Hovering support will be added after everything runs fine.

5. Attacks and Skills
To-do.

6. GFX and SFX
To-do.

7. Health and Overhead Health Bar Display
Math counter? HIT BASED health counter?? Trigger Multiple??? You no longer need to make those things. The monster system have those things up and running. You only need to make a single func_physbox to be used as hitbox. What's more, the AMOUNT of damage dealt to the hitbox will also be damage dealt to monster's health, making it weapon oriented damage*. You can also set damage multipler in the configurations.
To-do for Overhead Health Bar Display Descriptions.

*Damage multiplier applied on hitbox instead of individual weapons. Individual weapon damage multiplier functionality requires plugin to do so.

8. Animations
Idle Animation? Moving Animation? Attack Animation? SKILL ANIMATION? FLYING? DYING? Screw you input and output windows.
Now you don't need to setup those I/Os anymore. Let the script do those things. What you need to do is mess around with animation's configuration for the monster.

9. Patterns for Attack, Skills, and Movement
To-do

10. Scripting and Dialogues
To-do

Do items in the maps use any kind of shared vscripts? Because I just can't find any tutorial that would teach me how to display item timings. I'm pretty sure they use game text but probably using vscripts to display it especially when there's multiple items and you need to display them in single string.

I'm just wondering.. Did you guys use bunch of logic entities in hammer editor or a plugin?
Based on how the boss targets and moves, it looks like logic entities..

I've been seeing this errors in the game console ever since I started playing in the server since few days ago.
It's possibly caused by forbidden access , missing files from the server or wrong download server.

And, there's other errors which bugs me off since there's other players having the same problem.
Missing particles and sound files.
You can usually ignore these 2 errors most of the time but... Some maps such as FFXIV_Wanderers_Palace will cause player's computer to freeze.
I still haven't identify which of the 2 errors caused the freeze but I'm pretty sure it's caused by [Sound] plugins.
The reason is that you can see too many sound plugin errors in the console before your computer start freezing.

Therefore, please check if the files for particles and sounds are actually available to download. Check the attachments for the errors.
