This is amazing outlaw[:thumbu:] and the same time you save me because still i don't know how to make a good video tutorial to explain 100% clear how to make a basic script lua code in order all users undrestant it!![:doh:] Please outlaw if you finish your book can you able to upload your book on an acrobat reader file??[:roll:] Also i want not to dissapoint you about this but as far as good you are outlaw on script lua files you can't help all users especially the weakers programers people to explain 100% cleary how they make script lua file for any kind of card they want!![:sad:] On my opinion you are able to explain 100% cleary only how a basic script lua work and somehow explain them that only the hard work practice and testing is the most perfect key in order to improve their script lua programming skills!![:wink:]

what the book is gonna be is a bunch of tutorials to make card and themes going from some basic cards to the more advanced card as they go along i was thinking that some of the developers here might want an insert at the start of the book explaining how they got into card making and why

Yess!![:smile:] perfect!![:cool:] and i agree that is the only way to explain better how a script lua file work!![:laugh:] Also i reccomended to add exercises and examples in order users are able to practise and test their script lua skills!![:wink:] Just i can't wait to read your book!![:laugh:]

i am also welcome to entrys from other people if anyone has a tutorial or something they think will be beneficial i can add it and give credit and i was planning on adding tips all throughout the book in little speech bubbles and at the end of the book im gonna list every function and what it does

You do realize that that section will take more research than the rest of the whole book?

Ah!! I know you try to make a book but also there is a little way to add video tutorials??[:roll:] I am sure that the video tutorials going to offer more extra help in order someone understand how a script lua file work!![:wink:]

OK, I already have two tips to submit:

1. If you ever find yourself in a situation where you aren't sure if your effect is even triggered to begin with, add a line of code in one of the functions that simply restores the player's Life Points by a fixed amount. This will let you distinctively see, in-game, when that particular line of code is reached. You can expand this technique for complicated traces, where each individual line restores a different number of Life Points. So in-game, you would go "1, 2, 3, 4... no 5. OK, why did it stop before 5?". This will very quickly narrow down where the bug may be hiding.

2. When all else fails when debugging a script, you can try what is known in the programming world as "mutation testing". What it simply means is that you start changing your code so that chunks of it are deliberately not run. If you make such a change and the problem persists, you can be sure that the problem is not in that part of the code, and move on to trying to eliminate a different chunk. The most often used technique to achieve this is to start at the end of the effect's code and comment out lines of code back towards the start until the problem goes away. Then you start uncommenting line-per-line in normal order until the problem reappears, and boom - you know that the very last line you uncommented is causing the problem.

Great outlaw.I looking forward to read this,but i think making video is a bit better,coz i kinda have photographic memory, once i see how you do something in video i dont need anything else,But when i see bunch of letters i get boring after 2-3 minutes of reading.but i think i will read this one all the way coz there are bunch of card that i want to add to YGOPRO but since i dont know how i cant.Anyway thanks for this Outlaw.

I need a team of good coders who know how to make cards and can work with c++ and the devpro code
I'm trying to get a custom card mode made. I figure it would be a program integrated into devpro or a stand alone/ program that you would have to run with devpro. If you get what i'm saying.
