Yeah, I guess I just overthink things a lot and make problems harder than they should be.

Unless you are using the stats for something, remove them, and the init refs to them. Those were from one of my old test scripts for a stats menu.

I sent you a link to newer code that is much cleaner.

You do not need DrawInteger to display the XP. The entire purpose of storing it in a counter is to display it with normal passive subscreen mechanics. Download an older 'Legacy of Emperors' demo, and look at how the passive subscreen is constructed.

All i'm using is Health and Magic, so I can delete all those others with no issue?

You can delete them, but you must also delete anything that references them (e.g IncreaseStat() in the Level*() functions).

For XP, this specific revision of the script uses two counters, to display a value up to 99,999,999. The low counter (CR_XP) is for values 0 to 9999, and the high counter (XP_10K) is for the ten-thousands place, upward. I later rewrote that entire section of code to use a float, and to draw the float as a string, removing the decimal, and inserting commas.

With this code, you need omly add counters to your subscreen for each place-set, and align them so that the two counters appear to be one, as I did in the old LoE demos.


This is the sort of function to turn a float into a drawn long (with commas). I'm retyping it from memory, and there is probably a way to optimise it.



void FloatToLongStr (float f, int str)
{
   int buffer[14]: int buffer2 [14]; int com;
    ftoa(f,buffer); in len; int pos, int q;
    for ( q = 0; q < 14; ++q )
        if (buffer[q] == 0) break;
        if ( buffer[q] == '.')
        {
             buffer[q] = 0; continue; 
        }
        buffer2[pos] = buffer[q];
        ++pos; ++len; buffer[q] = 0;
    }
    //add command to get
    for (q = len; q >= 0; --q)
    {
     
         if ( q < len-2 && !q%3 ) { buffer[q] = `,`; ++com;}
         else buffer[q-com] = buffer1 [q];
    }
     //shift the output
     int zeros; int w;
     for (q = 0; q < 14; ++q)
     {
         if ( buffer[q]  == 0) continue;
          else
          {
               str[w] = buffer[q];
               ++w;
          }
          str[w] = 0;  //terminate
      }
}
