Re: [CODE] My update to DWIELD

where were was this code two days ago!  I used the dwield code from the ftp
sight for bpl17 and got THE MOST INTERESTING ERROR! If you were wearing
something IE:a helmet and tried to were another helmet instead of saying
your already wearing something it said putting helmet on and if you did eq
you were still wereing the original helmet and the one you tried to put on
just disappeared didn't even return to inventory!  But the error messages
worked fine for the new dwield code ie if you were already dual wielding it
would prompt you to remove one before using another weapon or holding
something.  took me FOREVER to fix this:)

Subject: [CIRCLE] [CODE] My update to DWIELD

Firstly, remove the acmd(do_dwield) command all together.

Then change your acmd(do_wield) with this:

  struct obj_data *obj;

  one_argument(argument, arg);

  if (!*arg)
    send_to_char("Wield what?\r\n", ch);
  else if (GET_EQ(ch, WEAR_DWIELD))
     send_to_char("Remove your secondary weapon first.\n\r", ch);
  else if (!(obj = get_obj_in_list_vis(ch, arg, ch->carrying))) {
    sprintf(buf, "You don't seem to have %s %s.\r\n", AN(arg), arg);
    send_to_char(buf, ch);
  } else {
    if (!CAN_WEAR(obj, ITEM_WEAR_WIELD))
      send_to_char("You can't wield that.\r\n", ch);
    else if (GET_OBJ_WEIGHT(obj) >
      send_to_char("It's too heavy for you to use.\r\n", ch);
    else if (GET_EQ(ch, WEAR_WIELD) && !GET_SKILL(ch, SKILL_DUAL))
      send_to_char("You have no idea how to dual wield.\r\n", ch);
    else if (GET_EQ(ch, WEAR_WIELD) && GET_EQ(ch, WEAR_SHIELD))
      send_to_char("You cannot dual wield while using a shield.\r\n", ch);
    else if (GET_EQ(ch, WEAR_WIELD) && !GET_EQ(ch, WEAR_SHIELD))
      perform_wear(ch, obj, WEAR_DWIELD);
      perform_wear(ch, obj, WEAR_WIELD);

Basically.. it modifies it, so you 'wield <weapon1>' then
'wield <weapon2>' .. it checks if your wielding a weapon
and if you are, moves it to your dwield slot.

Checks if your using a shield, etc etc.  I've tested this all
and it works.

Also, change do_remove with this:

Let me know whatcha'll think.  My first sent piece of code to
you guys =)

(I just didn't like do_dwield .. hehe.)
