Subject description: Adding a audio script in the specific support power
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Hi there ppmforums community just a new member here so i'm here to ask something unusual; we all already know about the ParaDrop support power, right? So i have to make it short, is there a possible tweak in which once i selected my designated target area the EVA Voice (whether Allied, Soviet, or Yuri) will say 'Reinforcements have arrived', much like the same thing from Red Alert 1. That said, this is my one and only help request i had. Thanks and More power to this community page.

http://ares-developers.github.io/Ares-docs/new/superweapons/evaevents.html

[SuperWeapon]?EVA.Activated= (EVA event)
The EVA event that will be triggered when the super weapon is fired.

An Ares tag. Use it to point at the related EVAmd.ini entry.

Find [ParaDropSpecial] in the rulesmd.ini file & add EVA.Activated=ceva038 to the end of the section.

EVA.Activated=EVA_ReinforcementsHaveArrived

The EVA.xxx tags take the evamd.ini entry names, not the actual .wav sound filenames.

In the rulesmd.ini of your mod. Of course you are making a mod because you want to add something new, that does not exist in vanilla game.
If you don't know anything about creating mod or editing files, check the forum for some tutorials. Basicly you will need XCC to open .mix files and extract/insert what you need. In the case of rulesmd.ini, it can be kept loose in the game folder without creating a new .mix to hold it.

(reminder that anything you write into rulesmd.ini can also be written into the map file, or the game mode INI for a skirmish/MP match. Mind, you'll be limited to rules.ini entries only.)

Nope.

IIRC I requested the MP INIs have more control in future Ares patches, but nothing concrete so far.

Here's to Phobos taking that job...

Ok here's what i did so far:

1. I downloaded the latest version of ARES (3.0) and installed to the RA2 directory.

2. I applied the codes to the rulesmd.ini file. More like these:

[ParaDropSpecial]?EVA.Activated=EVA_ReinforcementsHaveArrived
UIName=Name:Para
Name=Paratrooper Drop
IsPowered=false
RechargeVoice=
ChargingVoice=
ImpatientVoice=
SuspendVoice=
RechargeTime=4
Type=ParaDrop
Action=ParaDrop
SidebarImage=PARAICON
ShowTimer=no
DisableableFromShell=no ; gs this determines which superweapons are turned off by the checkbox

[AmericanParaDropSpecial]?EVA.Activated=EVA_ReinforcementsHaveArrived
UIName=Name:APara
Name=American Paratrooper Drop
IsPowered=false
RechargeVoice=
ChargingVoice=
ImpatientVoice=
SuspendVoice=
RechargeTime=4
Type=AmerParaDrop
Action=AmerParaDrop
SidebarImage=APARICON
ShowTimer=no
DisableableFromShell=no ; gs this determines which superweapons are turned off by the checkbox

3. Now the problem here is once i tested it; i didn't don't hear any voice from the EVA once i activated ParaDrop the ability. Did i miss something guys?

Remove that ?, it is a character that cannot be recognized by the forum and thus turned into ? when I copy &paste it in my answer. Maybe also move it to the last line instead of directly pasting it behind the section entry name.

I discovered this script line earlier:

[EVA_EnemyInfantryBattalionDetected]

So, is there a way to activate it using ARES? Instead of human player, the Enemy AI will use (not detected) the aforementioned ability at a surprise notice, at least in the Skirmish mode.

Did you find that in the original evamd.ini?

That EVA voice is used in a single player mission (I forget which one).

You can make a new reinforcement superweapon with Ares that only the AI can use & then attach that EVA notification to it. You'll also need to write new AI.ini code to make the AI use the reinforcement though but I think that is a bit beyond your current skill level.

IIRC units delivered by UnitDelivery SW will automaticlly go for Hunting now? That could solve the problem.
