New "Cold DeLorean" effects

Recommended Posts

Okay, I created this topic about some changed "Cold DeLorean" effects. I think it is an improvement from the ones in 0.2e, and looks slightly realistic. A video showcasing the effects is below. Please excuse the steam that shoots out of the vents! That is from my customized wormhole texture. :P

Maybe I could tell you what to change and you would have to test yoreself. I've got no VC, sorry.

If the effect used by the code, comes from an effects data file (effects.fxp in SA), then i might be able to find the velocity values for the steam cloud texture..

If its purely coded, i could download 0.2e to have a look.

Thats my offer, even if I am not a very good coder as well :D

That would be awesome! :D

Yup. It's purely coded into the main.scm in 0.2e R2.

Thats my offer, even if I am not a very good coder as well :D

Thanks for your quick response!

New video added above! :)

OK, downloaded..

Can you tell me some line numbers, of where the code you've swapped is located?

Huge file..

Awesome. For simplicity's sake, just focus on the bottom 3 lines of each :COLD codes.

Find: :COLD_465

You should see this:

:COLD_465

0208: 1@ = random_float -1.5 1.5 

0208: 2@ = random_float -8.5 8.0 

0208: 3@ = random_float -0.75 2.75  

0407: create_coordinate 4@ 5@ 6@ from_car 0@ offset 1@ 2@ 3@ 

0437: scatter_particle 30 0.1 at 4@ 5@ 6@ 0 0 0 

return 



:COLD_559

0208: 1@ = random_float -1.2 1.2 

0208: 2@ = random_float -2.5 2.5 

0208: 3@ = random_float 0.0 0.65

0407: create_coordinate 4@ 5@ 6@ from_car 0@ offset 1@ 2@ 3@ 

0437: scatter_particle 22 0.5 at 4@ 5@ 6@ 0 0 0 

return 

All you do is swap the text underneath :COLD_465 with the text underneath :COLD_559, so it looks like this:

:COLD_465

0208: 1@ = random_float -1.2 1.2 

0208: 2@ = random_float -2.5 2.5 

0208: 3@ = random_float 0.0 0.65 

0407: create_coordinate 4@ 5@ 6@ from_car 0@ offset 1@ 2@ 3@ 

0437: scatter_particle 22 0.5 at 4@ 5@ 6@ 0 0 0 

return 



:COLD_559

0208: 1@ = random_float -1.5 1.5 

0208: 2@ = random_float -8.5 8.0 

0208: 3@ = random_float -0.75 2.75 

0407: create_coordinate 4@ 5@ 6@ from_car 0@ offset 1@ 2@ 3@ 
0437: scatter_particle 30 0.1 at 4@ 5@ 6@ 0 0 0
return[/codebox]

I certainly hope this makes good sense!

Well, I dont know this opcode...

0437: scatter_particle 22 0.5 at 4@ 5@ 6@ 0 0 0

But it looks like:

- First parameter particle ID

- second might be the size?

- at coords 4@, 5@, 6@.

- last three params could contain interesting values..

Did you try to play with this?

If the first param is an particle ID, then i would like to know where the particle is (like in .fxp).

I will try to find out something in the scm. But since i have no VC, i cant test..

As I've said above, all I did was swap around the lines of code- I didn't adapt anything whatsoever. Do you mean where the actual particle image is? It is found in the particle.txd- you obviously need TXD Workshop to open that. I think it's called either smoke2.png or smoke3.

The first parameter, wich is 22, might be an ID. Dont know if 22 would point to a Texture or to an Effect, wich again points to textures..

I suggest you change all parameters in 0437: one by one (exept of the coords) and check the changes ingame.

Sound like a lot of effort, but thats how i did it with SA..

Hey, a copy of VC just materialized itself in my DVD drive..

The first parameter of 0437: (particle ID?) might point to

"SMOKE_SLOWMOTION" (ID 22)

and

"STEAM2" (ID 30)

located in "..\GTA Vice City\data\particle.cfg"

If changing parameters of 0437: wont be successful, you may still try to play with "particle.cfg".

EDIT:

huh.gif

I meant, trying it out is the way I learned some about cleo coding.

Or what does your strange look mean? :blink:

:P
