Changes [plus or minus] number of allowed Armies, Corps,..
SetFormedCmdMax sets them, vs an algebraic change....


Format, taken from Script Engine code:

SetFormedCmdMax: Syntax is SetFormedCmdMax = NbCorpsStacks|NbArmiesStacks

ChgFormedCmdMax: Syntax is ChgFormedCmdMax = NbCorpsStacks|NbArmiesStacks

and, IIRC to include Divisions

SetCombiUnits: Syntax is SetCombiUnits = NbSmall|NbMedium|NbLarge

where NbLarge is the # Divisions...... IIRC, the Small and Medium are legacy, so use with extreme care


Events using these can be seen in CW2 file 1861 July Campaign.sct




....sigh, I miss the Wiki..... :crying:

I cannot find the examples of "ChgFormedCmdMax"

Only of "SetFormedCmdMax"

Searched with Notepad++ in the events folder files, with examples in April and July 1861 campaigns in CW2.

Code: Select all

  SetFormedCmdMax = 9999;6
  SetFormedCmdMax = 9999;6
  SetFormedCmdMax = 0;3
  SetFormedCmdMax = 0;3
  SetFormedCmdMax = 9999;9
  SetFormedCmdMax = 9999;9
  SetFormedCmdMax = 0;9999
  SetFormedCmdMax = 0;9999
  SetFormedCmdMax = 9999;6
  SetFormedCmdMax = 9999;6
  SetFormedCmdMax = 0;3
  SetFormedCmdMax = 0;3
  SetFormedCmdMax = 9999;9
  SetFormedCmdMax = 9999;9
  SetFormedCmdMax = 0;9999
  SetFormedCmdMax = 0;9999

Yeah, we rarely used the "change" version of commands, as weirdness could result: using "set" leaves little doubt as to how many....

...but it really is "in there" in the script engine.....

OK, thanks lodilefty :hat:


Citizen X, what are you modding, if I may ask?

Currently nothing. I was just sorting stuff on my harddisk, really. With the new engine at the gates I started going through the stuff I had written down about the old one. Which wasn't much because everything seemed to be online.

With the wiki gone, not so much info available for modding, the databases of some games, this forum.

And I wonder which is the future of this very forum...

I've a copy of the whole agewiki. PM me at depottwit@outlook.fr to get the download link.

I'm looking for the Ageod Mapedit, btw. PM me too.

A first poster with the complete wiki? :blink:

Which is the format of your saved version?


The map utility was named Exmap2, AFAIK it was as rough as hell.

This was the old download link, that of course is not working.

Thank you, it works :)

Though what was the date of the save? It is not complete, for example the command of the title of this very thread is missing.

There were up to 310 commands in the list according to the wayback machine, and in your save "only" 293.

The Definitions, abilities and Modding Options categories seem to be complete.


AI modding, only the already commented and saved AI.RemAgent is missing.

Thank you again AntoniusPius! ;)


Hope it is useful to any modder that may appear.

Long live AGE engine! :wacko:

Digging deeper in my archives, I've found a very old version of exmap.

A stroke of dispair inducing me to try, I've learnt it works perfectly with recent games like ECW, if you add to each rgn files 2 lines :

UID = 197
Name = Region00197
Kind = 0
x = 1860
y = 4456
xc = 2129
yc = 4663
DisplayNb = 4
Coo0 = 2156|4628|0
Coo1 = 2068|4692|0
Coo2 = 2188|4700|0
Coo3 = 2212|4660|0
TerrainType = 14
SprFacing = 0
DisplaceOffset0 = 0|0
Adjacency0 = 195


Must be modified into

UID = 197
Name = Region00197
Kind = 0
x = 1860
y = 4456
xc = 2129
yc = 4663
DisplayNb = 4
Coo0 = 2156|4628|0
Coo1 = 2068|4692|0
Coo2 = 2188|4700|0
Coo3 = 2212|4660|0
Bitmap = 0Rensselaer, NY.bmp
WinterBmp = Winter_0Rensselaer, NY.bmp
TerrainType = 14
SprFacing = 0
DisplaceOffset0 = 0|0


I've divided one ECW region in 2 succesfully.

Too bad it is not the Wiki code. But still a huge step onward.

I spent several weeks to transform the HTML Code of the wayback machine into Wiki Code. Just got finished. Will see how your safe can fit in after Easter Holidays.

Great.

2.41 version. A few data folders are missing in the archive, but I've fixed that.

From a search on this forum, this version is among the more recent.

Many thanks for the move.

It has been made possible by CitizenX who worked hard to pull back the old Wiki from its grave and convert it into an HTML format, that has been then put by Lafrite on the LE QG website

Many thanks to CitizenX, and also big thanks to Lafrite for hosting it.

Kudos for this goes to Lafrite alone.

While true that I converted the HTML code found at wayback machine back to Wiki Code, this is presumably AntoniusPius 's HTML backup of the old Wiki. I might get corrected there.

Good job, Lafrite and AntoniusPius.
