Re: Graphical Bar Code?

In any spell/skill function call, you have a minimum of two halves.  The
first half initiates the spell, does the checks to see if the player can
cast/use the spell/skill, and the second half executes this based on the
previous results.  So, using an event based system, all you would have to do
is split these functions into two separate parts.  At the bottom of the
first portion, have it call the event store (whatever it is) and place the
wait period there.  This will call the second portion in the allotted time.
When the time is up, it should work.  For example, before calculating
whether or not to hit, I split do_kick up into to functions.  ACMD(do_kick)
and perform_kick().  Passing in the required args (manually changed event
system for extra values needed), I can now do the skill using this event
system.  I AM NOT USING DG_EVENTS FOR THIS, I HAND CODED IN ANOTHER
PATCH/SNIPPET FOUND ON THE FTP SITE YEARS AGO.  I STILL USE THIS PATCH, even
though it is really outdated.  Fixed a bunch of bugs in it and walla.  It
still works :).  Although, initially it conflicted with DG_EVENTS, I had to
change dg_events a little to get it to work (both called different functions
with the same name doevents or something).

Anywho, my 2!
