So I'm not even sure this is possible to script, but can a script be made for a melee weapon that reaches 2 tiles (about 32 pixels) long. No swing though, just a straight one direction stab. The weapon must be able to hit 2 enemies in a line if both are lined up. Thanks in advance if it can be done.

Someone scripted this for me a while ago. It might have been Ryunaker?


I think I took out all the game-specific tweaks I made for Solaris. Let me know if it doesn't work or you can't figure it out.


This requires ffcscript.zh.

That's certainly a very complex method of doing this.


I wrote a scripted LWeapon header which could also do something similar; though I've never tested this particular scenario since diagonal Lweapons that are 2 tiles big are a nightmare.


Using that method, I would have done something like this;

const int SPR_SPEAR_DN = 107;
const int SPR_SPEAR_LF = 106;
const int SPR_SPEAR_RT = 108;
const int SPR_SPEAR_UP = 105;

//D0- Blank so other scripts can use item
//D1- Damage done by item.
//D2- Sound made when using item

item script Spear{
	void run(int dummy, int Damage, int sfx){
			lweapon spear;
				spear = FireBigLWeapon(LW_SCRIPT1, Link->X, Link->Y-32, 
							__DirtoRad(Link->Dir), 0, Damage, 
			else if(Link->Dir==DIR_DOWN)
				spear = FireBigLWeapon(LW_SCRIPT1, Link->X, Link->Y+16, 
							__DirtoRad(Link->Dir), 0, Damage, 
			else if(Link->Dir==DIR_LEFT)
				spear = FireBigLWeapon(LW_SCRIPT1, Link->X-32, Link->Y, 
							__DirtoRad(Link->Dir), 0, Damage, 
			else if(Link->Dir==DIR_RIGHT)
				spear = FireBigLWeapon(LW_SCRIPT1, Link->X+16, Link->Y, 
							__DirtoRad(Link->Dir), 0, Damage, 
							SPR_SPEAR_RT, sfx, LWF_PIERCES_ENEMIES,2,1);								
			Link->Action = LA_ATTACKING;

Please keep in mind that this won't work without the header in question.


This method is also untested, though I could probably whip up something that works fairly quickly.


The header in question can be found here.


You can use any method you like. (There's also Alucard648's stdWeapons.zh, which I don't understand.)


The only reason I'm suggesting mine is that it requires no ffc scripts to work. I'll be experimenting with it, just in case there are any unforeseen bugs.

Not sure if a big LWeapon can hit 2 enemies at once. I'd rather make it 2 seperate LWeapons.

That's actually a fair point and one of the reasons I wanted to test the idea.


One thing I've already discovered is that my current code is not optimized for the correct handling of sprites for 1 x 2 (or 2 x 1) lweapons. So, I'll have to work on that if I want to support them. (Oddly shaped hitboxes are generally harder to do than square ones.)


Two separate lweapons would be ludicrously simple.


Two Lweapons for the price of one


Also, edited the first section of code to fix some errors.
