Many Questions Need Answering

Post by jwilkes99999 » Mon Sep 12, 2011 7:47 pm

Ok, so I think I'm going to try and be more active in the forum and try and help the wagic project because I've really enjoyed playing it on my psp, and while I thought my coding skills were too minimal to help the project (I'm still getting my degree) I think I might be able to help. But it seems like I keep running into questions that I can't find answers to (I'm sure some are actually out there, they just seem to allude me). So while at the moment I only have one question, that's because I'm actively working on a project and need this answered asap. I'm going to come back later and ask the other questions that have been building up. So here it goes.

Question 1: How does the game determine if you unlock a set at the end of a match?

Specifically I'm working with the Knights and Dragons mod and I unlocked the orc set on my android tablet but can't remember how to do it on my PC. :?

Also, I accidentally created a copy of the human set trying to back it up to test my images and since it was in my sets folder when I won a game it "unlocked" my backup copy set. In the future, I don't want this to happen so is there a way to disable automatically unlocking a set after a win? (This is the main purpose of my question)

the unlocks are think are hardcoded, not sure if wololo added a method to avoid having a certain set unlock. he would need to confirm it.

Hmmm, I was afraid of that. But I guess it can't be helped atm.

Question 2: Does anyone know why the Dragons and Knights mod will not keep up with any win loss records? Is this hard coded as well or controlled in the settings/rules somewhere?

This is done randomly when you win a game.

This is probably because the decks for that mod are in the "player/premade" folder... I'm thinking that if you moved them in the player folder, victories/defeats would start to be counted correctly.

So there's no way to keep players from prematurely unlocking sets. I guess that's ok. If they really want to spam single player mode rather than go through the campaign they can.

And that was exactly what it was. So I took them out of premade and gave them unlock requirements, so now players can have a win/loss record in single player.

Question 3: Is Mulligan hard coded? Because I'd like to modify it so that its closer to the new xbox version. i.e. When you select mulligan the first time you still get 7 cards back, THEN it starts decreasing your card count by one for any additional mulligans.

Yes, currently it is hard coded... we haven't touched mulligan in a while, but making it more flexible is one of our long-term projects

I definitely want to know when that becomes available. I'm trying to get wagic to play with me and my friends' house rules.
