Hmm...what do you suggest I do M?  I'm just trying to make this interesting without adding in a dozen new minion types, and the random mutation attribute seems like the perfect answer.  Also, I'm not quite getting the kind of mission I want here.  What I'm really going for is a situation like in FF1, where there are portals opening up that will keep spitting out enemies until you close them.  Any ideas on how to model that?  What I've got right now is just the portals set up as objects which you have to sabotage, and they are guarded by a group of bad guys.  I don't have any real sense of urgency to it, though, since they aren't actually spitting out reinforcements. 
I know you can loop random encounters, or have them called multiple times.  Could you somehow set a timer between looping (so there is a delay between them) and then end the random encounters once the player sabotages the portal?

That's the question Torch.  That is indeed the question.  The timer is easy enough to work, but how to end it...I don't know.

I can test it out right now, but I'm thinking something with the 'starts when <encounter> at end'.

You can also key encounters to start when something else hasn't ended. 

Starts when: not my_encounter at end

or even Starts When: my_encounter not at end

(you can also use 'or' and 'and')

Starts When: my_encounter at end or my_encounter2 at end



So...

Encounter: Portal1
Type: Sabotage
Next: None

Encounter: Spawn Stuff
Starts When: Portal1 not at End
Villains: spawns
Next: Spawn Stuff



As for the random mutation attribute... if it isn't working, I can't offer much help.  Maybe TaskmasterX would know.

Thanks M!  So, when would that one start?  Obviously, it would start sometime during the other encounter, but how long would it take?  It might not be good to have the thing spit out bad guys at the very beginning....then again, that might work okay if I don't have too many at the portal in the first place.  Thanks M, I think you've given me just the layout I wanted!

I'll contact TMX and see if he can give me any help with that attribute, then.  Thanks for the suggestion. :)
God Bless

To expand on that... you need to have an encounter that starts the portal and the 'spawn'.

Encounter: Do Portal and Spawn
Type: None
Next: Portal1, Spawn Stuff


Both would start at the same time, so you'd get spawns immediately.  However, you could put in a Wait encounter to delay the spawn

Encounter: Do Portal and Spawn
Type: None
Next: Portal1, Delayed Spawn

Encounter: Delayed Spawn
Type: Wait
Minimum Time: 30
Maximum Time: 35
Next: Spawn Stuff

So...in trying to keep busy I have started on the JSA/JLA crossover.  I can't really focus to work on my thesis...but this, this is more accessible to pick up and put down as necessary.  I've got the first mission written, but I'm having trouble with the first encounter.  Everything else seems to be triggering fine.  The problem seems to be the Alert Cutscene.  It isn't playing for some reason, although the Start Cutscene is playing fine.  This should be the very first thing that the player sees when he starts the mission:

Encounter: Bad1
Type: Fight
Villains: nazi_general, nazi_rifleman, nazi_rifleman, nazi_rifleman, nazi_gunner,

Next: Future1

Alert Cutscene:

great deal more important. That madman must never get his hands on this device. The

consequences would be...unthinkable."

Villain1 says, "Now now Herr Doktor, that sounds suspiciously like treason."
Villain1 plays animation power
Ally2 turns to Villain1
Ally2 says, "No! You're too early! I haven't had time to convince him yet!"
Villain1 says, "You have had all the time that der Fuehrer deemed necessary. Now we shall

persuade the good doktor on OUR terms."
Ally1 says, "You've come for the device? So...you betrayed me Per...after all these

months...well, your Fuehrer will never see the machine.  I'll destroy it!"
Ally 1 moves to spot4
Ally2 says, "No...no! I won't let you do this...I won't let you ruin everything. I've

waited so long...I've been so patient. It's mine, and you can't take it from me!"
Ally2 plays animation ranged_gun_2
Play effect effect_ffx_gun at Ally1
Ally1 is killed
Ally2 moves to spot4
Play effect effect_portal_activate at Ally2
Fade for 1 second
Ally2 teleports to lab4
Cinematic camera on Hero1
Unfade for 3 seconds
Hero1 says, "This is where Dr. Zee said to meet him...but the door has been smashed in. Be

on your guard!"

Start Cutscene:

Hero1 turns to Villain1
Hero1 says, "Ratzis! What are they doing here? This looks like a set-up guys. Let's take it

to the Reich!"
Camera on Villain1
Villain1 turns to Hero1
Villain1 says, "Nein! This mission is a disaster! Der Feuhrer will have my head for

this...first we lose the scientist and his assistant, and now those troublesome American

mystery men interfere. Kill them!"

End Cutscene:
Camera on Hero1
Hero1 turns to Hero2
Hero1 says, "Well gents, that takes care of this bunch. We'd better check the rest of the

place and make sure they didn't have any friends along for the ride."

There is nothing that jumps out at me in the script.log.  Any thoughts?

I think I'm going to try reformating that part as a cutscene, and see if I have any better luck with it.  Alert scenes seem to be more temperamental to me.

Urg...so, mission two is written, but I'm having two problems with it.  First, it seems that the second encounter is not ending.  I've tested it several times, and the third encounter will play if I trigger it first, but when I put it in order, nothing happens after the second one is supposed to have ended.  I can only assume something weird is going on here.  I think I may be able to solve it by adding in a Ally Thanks Hero cutscene, but we'll see. 

The second problem is that the final encounter is not playing properly.  I've got a whole bunch of villains showing up to play with my heroes, and the alert cutscene is working properly, but the start cutscene isn't playing.  I don't see anything in the script.log that jumps out at me, but I'm including what I hope is the pertinent portion of it for those wiser than me.

As you can see, it isn't anything fancy, just an interrogation encounter.  I'm baffled.  I'll continue testing the other stuff, and hopefully someone can help me figure this out.

:EDIT: A quick update, JSA#1 is working and pretty much done.

Grr!  Okay, so the last encounter is working fine now...EXCEPT that when you defeat the primary villain (Sonar), just as he SHOULD be getting the interrogation symbol, I'm getting a CTD!  Neither FF.log, nor script.log have anything that points to something like this.  Help!

Its been a while since i did any EZScript stuff so I'm just spitballing, but could it be an issue with you specifying Sonar as the villain during the interrogation cutscene? Since you have so many villains, what if Sonar is the first one killed. If the game has removed him, and then the cutscene is specifically targeting him, it seems to me that it might crash because that character doesn't exist anymore to be the target of the camera.

But like I say. Im rusty so its just a random guess.

According to my understanding Goggles, I don't think that is likely.  EZScript, as far as I know, picks the first villain in a list and makes them the target of interrogations.  Besides, in this instance I killed everyone else with the developer console to see if the thing was working right.  I beat Sonar last, with in game powers.

So, I went a different way with the mission, and things seem to be working out.  I've got a new question for any of those with EZScript experience.  I'm facing the same problem I did when I was working on my last JLA missions.  I want to offer the player a chance to chose his or her team, but if I do that, then the rest of the JSA/JLA won't be able to join them, as I have no way to figure out who they chose.  I was thinking that there might be a way to handle this through the Simple Choice plugin, but I can't think of any good way to go about it.  Does anyone have any ideas?

:EDIT:  Hmm...what if...I spawn ALL of the characters, and then I do four simple choice encounters, in which the players say who they chose, and each one of those points to ANOTHER encounter that kills the spawned character that they say they have on the mission?

:EDIT2: No ideas?

Urg....so, one of the things I've been doing with my time is trying to improve the original 3 campaigns included in the DCUG.  I specifically wanted to improve a certain exposition heavy cutscene in JLA.  I tried to make it a bit more dynamic, and that grew into me creating an entire new mission.  I can't get the darn thing to work, and I'm sick of beating my head against a wall.  What follows is the mission file.  Does anyone see any reason this shouldn't work?  I want it to basically be one big cutscene.  Is there an easier way to do this?  It works until the third encounter, and that cs never plays.

Have you tried changing the offending encounter from an alert cutscene to a start custscene. I remember in the past I always had weird issues trying to do Dialogue and what not in an alert CS. So I always used the alert CS to set arrows and positions etc, but any dialogue story stuff I put in the start CS.

Haha, yeah, I actually just changed it from "Start" to "Alert" in a desperate attempt to get it to work.  It's been a "Cutscene" type encounter, and the CS itself has been both Start and Alert.  There is nothing in the script.log, by the way.  I suppose what I'm really looking for is just a way to have this mission work like a long cutscene, get this information across, and keep it moderately entertaining.

I sent a patch to the email address I had for you (the yahoo one).  It should correct an issue with the cinematic camera and with the disarm bomb encounter not preventing the explosion.

The bomb is spawned at <encounter_marker>_bomb1




I am facing the same problem as Benton with a "disarm bomb" encounter on my Legion mod's first mission. Where I can get this patch?
Thanks!

I've got a question for those of you in the know; is there a way to UNrecruit someone through EZScript?  In my JLA/JSA campaign, I want the player to be able to choose some JSAers occasionally, but I don't want them to be available in future arcs.

Alright, this is telling me that your effect, "effect_portal_activate" is missing, which doesn't make any sense, since it is a built in effect.  Check this directory: Data\art\library\fx\fx_levels\large_portal_object\large_portal_activate.nif  and see if the file is there.
God Bless

In my DCUG folder I have art/library/fx/ but no fx levels folder. There are 4 folders textures, ffx, generic and generic states.

Right, but it should be in your generic Data folder, the one you get from unpacking your art.dat file.  If you haven't done that, that could be the problem.  I'll upload that file and you can simply drop it into your DCUG directory, then the mission should work.
God Bless

My bad, I should have told you I checked my Data\art\library\fx folder first and just have 2 folders, textures and generic in it. That's why I then went to the DCU folder.

Okey doke EoH, this could actually be behind some of your earlier weirdnesses.  I suppose the simplest thing to do is for me simply to put all of that up for you to download.  I'll do that now.
