Deck Scale mod

Postby shaun » Tue Jan 17, 2017 3:32 am

When I try to install the THUG2 scaling mod from thmods.com, it gives me an error saying Game\Data\pre\mainmenu_scripts.prx contains invalid data. I checked the file myself and it seems to be completely vanilla, so I don't know what's wrong. I was able to create my own scaling mod by following ProHad's tutorial (http://www.thmods.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=119) but this doesn't include deck scaling. Does anyone know how to make a mod that affects deck scaling? I would really appreciate it.

Also, if I set any of the max scale values in scalingmenu.txt to -1.#QNAN0, the .qb won't compile. It just spits out a temp.dump. Thankfully though I can get around this by just setting max scale to a high value like 999999.

I am using the roq cmd compiler.

You have to add the board bone group to the scaling options.

I figured as such. I'm really lost on how to do that, though. I tried copying from a THUG1 scaling mod, but I can't get it to work. I'm sure whatever I wrote is total gibberish. This is all quite new to me.

In 'master_scaling_list' you need to add a structure to the array for board_bone_group

Code: Select all

:s{
  :i $part$ = $board_bone_group$
  :i $bone_scaling$ = %i(1,0)
:s}

I found master_scaling_list, but I can't figure out where exactly to put your array structure. This is the only occurrence of "master_scaling_list" in scalingmenu.txt.

Code: Select all

:i function $cas_really_reset_all_scaling$
   :i $cas_cancel_reset_all_scaling$
   :i call $process_cas_command$ arguments
      $cas_command$ = $cas_reset_scale$$editable_list$ = $master_scaling_list$
   :i $GetCurrentSkaterProfileIndex$
   :i call $RefreshSkaterModel$ arguments
      $profile$ = %GLOBAL%$currentSkaterProfileIndex$$skater$ = %i(0,00000000)$no_board$ = $no_board$
:i endfunction
:i function $cas_reset_scale$
   :i $GetCurrentSkaterProfileIndex$
   :i if call $gotParam$ arguments
         $male_cas_part$
      :i call $GetSkaterSex$ arguments
         $player$ = %GLOBAL%$currentSkaterProfileIndex$
      :i if call $gotParam$ arguments
            $is_male$
         :i if  (%GLOBAL%$is_male$)
            :i %GLOBAL%$cas_part$ = %GLOBAL%$male_cas_part$
         :i else
            :i %GLOBAL%$cas_part$ = %GLOBAL%$female_cas_part$
         :i endif
         :i call $scalingmenu_reset_to_default$ arguments
            $part$ = %GLOBAL%$part$$cas_part$ = %GLOBAL%$cas_part$
         :i return
         
      :i endif
   :i endif
   :i %GLOBAL%$x$ = %i(100,00000064)
   :i %GLOBAL%$y$ = %i(100,00000064)
   :i %GLOBAL%$z$ = %i(100,00000064)
   :i $GetCurrentSkaterProfileIndex$
   :i call $SetPlayerAppearanceScale$ arguments
      $player$ = %GLOBAL%$currentSkaterProfileIndex$$part$ = %GLOBAL%$part$$x$ = %GLOBAL%$x$$y$ = %GLOBAL%$y$$z$ = %GLOBAL%$z$$use_default_scale$ = %i(1,00000001)

The name of the array is master_scaling_list it won't be inside a function.

scalingmenu.qb does not have a master_scaling_list array. The only occurrence of "master_scaling_list" is in that function. Should I be looking in another .qb file?

Then it isn't in scalingmenu.qb. Pretty sure it's in one of the qb scripts like cas_parts.
What you're referring to isn't an array it's a reference to said array something = master_scaling_list.

I can get cas_parts.qb to compile, but I can't compile scalingmenu.qb when I try to add the board bone group. I just get a temp.dump. What am I doing wrong?

What version of roq compiler are you using? 2.1 rebuilds the tables.
Also, upload the text version of the script you're trying to compile and the dump file.

I'm using the roq.exe and cmd GUI in QB Explorer 2.1.rar from thps-mods.com/tools.php. I'm sure the problem is with my script and not the compiler. All I've done is add board_bone_group to $scalingmenu_constraints$ and $skateshop_scaling_options$. I feel like the script should be a lot more detailed than that.

I figured it out. I had to add "#addx 0xac66013c "board_bone_group"" to the qb table. So deck scaling works! However, I'm still having issues with -1.#QNAN0. roq just refuses to compile anything that contains -1.#QNAN0. Any idea why?

As I said you need version 2.1 and it will rebuild the table for you.
The tool doesn't support NaN as a value.

Re: Deck Scale mod

Got it. Now I just have two more questions:

1. Can I make the deck show when I'm in the deck scale menu? I tried adding $Deck$$show_deck$ to $cam_anim_sub$ but it still just shows the skaters legs.

2. I added this code to each item in $skateshop_scaling_options$ to let me scale the X, Y and Z axes individually:

Code: Select all

:i $scaling_params$ = :s{call $affectX$ arguments
      $affectY$$affectZ$$affectXY$$affectXYZ$:s}

Unfortunately this causes the game to crash sporadically when exiting scale menus. Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks for all your help, BTW. I really appreciate it.

I forget what I ended up doing to make the deck show up off the top of my head. I had to edit a script to support it though.
Adding the options like that shouldn't crash. The only issue I ever had with that was the menu positions weren't designed for it so elements would overlap. I'll see if I can find my board show fix.
