|Platform||DELL Dimension 9200||OS||Windows Vista||OS Version||Ultimate 32-bit|
|Fixed in Version||3.6.10|
|Summary||0001517: SEXP argument numbering just reaches 15|
|Description||Take a look at the screenshot.|
It would be nice if you could get any amount of argument numbering in the Event editor. It would be pretty useful for the usually long set-message-list SEXP.
(Nevertheless, an EXTREMELY unimportant issue).
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||The numbers don't seem to be generated at runtime, they're actually images compiled into the build. So to support 1-100 someone is going make the others.|
||Not I, said the fly. :)|
I suggest another way with just a set of 19 bitmaps:
+ The current unit bitmaps from 1 to 9.
+ Adding ten bitmaps: 00, 10, 20, ..., 90.
In this way if you see 6 and 50 over it, either you are really dumb or you instantly know you are in 56.
When you reach 100, 200, ..., 1000, 1100, ... 2000, ... you just use 00. And of course you have to manually count the hundreds and thousands which shouldn't be difficult, (or a common situation BTW) ;)
I upload the tens pack. I've used a 12x14 size which maybe needs an extra white border. Tell me and I will resize them (or tell me if you want another looking BTW)
Tens.rar (718 bytes)
"Not I, said the fly. :)"
Um, WMC, you were kinda the one who implemented this feature, so I think that means you're kinda the one responsible for it...
Can you at least tell me where in the code the bitmaps are displayed? I could add something that simply cycles the 1-10 bitmaps over and over.
It's not irresponsible to refuse to spend the time to make 85 more bitmaps in Paint when it's clear that it's of limited utility. The minihelp box should already tell you which node you have selected.
For this particular instance, it's of limited utility since send-message-list goes by 4s anyway; you would have to do the math in your head if you relied on node numbers.
ARSPR's solution would be just as effective, require only 20 bitmaps, and could easily be expanded for 100th nodes as well.
Made new bitmaps and updated it to work by 5's and rotate 0-95, so it should work regardless of how many arguments you've got.
I'll commit in the morning, too tired to do it right now.
With newest builds the argument numbering has completely disappeared. We have just retail FRED looking.
I've noticed it from SVN 20080423 (Chief: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,53473.0.html).
Even Kara's newest build suffers it (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,53718.0.html)
||Just checked that it works fine with a clean checkout. Must be build specific and nothing wrong with what's in SVN. I'll leave this open for a couple of days to see if the others end up commenting, but it's not broken code wise.|
I don't think this is a bug, It's a misunderstanding of what happens now.
Following Taylor's fix only multiples of 5 are numbered. So if all you're doing is using a send-message-list you won't see a number until you Add Data.
||I'll try to re-check later with latest Kara or WCM builds.|
||Going to just assume that it's a misunderstanding as karajorma said. :)|
