Talk about new cards here

Postby Huggybaby » 15 Jul 2010, 16:13

MTG has a lot of cards, and implementing them takes a lot of discussion, so I made this forum so you can talk about new cards without clogging up the main forum.

Hehe, i coded one also but it's in the next release...

You can simply use this for landfall (yes it was inside the default functions ^^) :

<TRIGGER value="COMES_INTO_PLAY">
return LandFall()
</TRIGGER>

end

if Object():GetNthTargetCard( 2 ) ~= nil then

</EFFECT>
</ACTIVATED_ABILITY>

<AI_SCORE_MULTIPLIER zone="hand" value="20" />

<!-- END OF CARD ABILITIES -->

</CARD>
</MULTICARDS>

I think the error it's from the bold part

When I start a game or edit the deck, DoTP crash

this is my Jester cap code is no polished.

<TARGET_DETERMINATION>
return TargetPlayerBad()
</TARGET_DETERMINATION>
<PLAYTIME>
ChooseTarget( "ChoosePlayerThreeDamageTwoCards" )
</PLAYTIME>
<PRE_EFFECT>
Object():Register_Player_Set( 0, Object():GetTargetPlayer() )
ChooseNFromLibrary( Object():GetTargetPlayer(), { "ChooseCard", "ChooseCard" })
</PRE_EFFECT>
<EFFECT>
if Object():GetNthTargetCard( 0 ) ~= nil then
Object():GetNthTargetCard( 0 ):RemoveFromGame()
Object():GetNthTargetCard( 0 ):GuidedReveal( ZONE_LIBRARY, ZONE_GRAVEYARD )
end
if Object():GetNthTargetCard( 1 ) ~= nil then
Object():GetNthTargetCard( 1 ):RemoveFromGame()
Object():GetNthTargetCard( 1 ):GuidedReveal( ZONE_LIBRARY, ZONE_GRAVEYARD )
end
</EFFECT>
</SPELL_ABILITY>

hope you get a better idea...and heres what i think is crashing:
Object():GetPlayer():SetTargetCount( 3 )

local index = 1
while index &lt; 4 do
Object():GetPlayer():SetTargetPrompt( index - 1, "ChooseTargetCard" )
index = index + 1
end
Object():GetPlayer():ChooseTargets()
its a good idea to select 3 targets at a time but is better in my humble opinion to noy use SetTarget its a little more complex.

Weird thing is that it's exactly the same as the ChooseNFromLibrary() function...

I usually this sort of crash error whithout able to see the cards when the 'CARD_TEXT.Xml' file is messy (like empty cells in it)

Grave Pact

Postby logoliv » 28 Jul 2010, 09:50

Hi all,

I'm trying to make Grave Pact, it triggers correctly but I can't figure out how to do the "each other player sacrifices a creature" part... Here's my code :

Code: Select all
<TRIGGERED_ABILITY tag="GRAVE_PACT_RULE_1" zone="IN_PLAY" layer="0">
   <TRIGGER value="HIT_GRAVEYARD">
      return ( (TriggerObject():GetCardType():Test( CARD_TYPE_CREATURE ) ~= 0) and YouControl() )
   </TRIGGER>
   <TARGET_DETERMINATION>
      return ( SubjectType() == SUBJECT_PLAYER and Player() ~= Object():GetPlayer() )
   </TARGET_DETERMINATION>
   <PRE_EFFECT>
      Object():GetFilter():SetPlayer( Object():GetTargetPlayer() )
      Object():GetFilter():SetController( Object():GetTargetPlayer() )
      Object():GetFilter():SetZone( ZONE_IN_PLAY )
      Object():GetFilter():AddCardType( CARD_TYPE_CREATURE )
      Object():GetTargetPlayer():ChooseTarget( "TargetCreatureNeutralBadF" )
   </PRE_EFFECT>
   <EFFECT>
      SacrificeTargetCard()
   </EFFECT>
</TRIGGERED_ABILITY>
I have this error message : "[lua] [string "GRAVE_PACT_TITLE (PRE_EFFECT)"]:7: attempt to index a nil value". Any help would be very appreciated :)

Object():GetTargetPlayer():ChooseTarget( "TargetCreatureNeutralBadF" )

thin this is the line that causes the message after you close the game.

Everything is ok except the fact that only the first card is removed...

I test with PutInGraveyard effect (the major part of this card is copy of Buried Alive...)

Maybe Yanna can help me with why only the first are removed...

Does it works when you remove the GuidedReveal parts ? I think you need to pass two parameters to it (where is it from and where does it go).

Otherwise the code seems allright to me (thought didn't test it in-game).

And what's the zone for EXILE?


EDIT : 3 cards in the graveyard... maybe with a Zone_EXILE

thanks Uresti, I've seen that the error is in the 7th line, but I think it comes from bad code before that, and I don't know how to implement "each other player"... do I have to make a loop for each player to sacrifice a creature ?
has someone coded a card with "each other player" ?
please help :(

EDIT : 3 cards in the graveyard... maybe with a Zone_EXILE
Here's the list of zones :

ZONE_NOWHERE_YET
ZONE_ANYWHERE
ZONE_IN_PLAY
ZONE_REMOVED_FROM_GAME
ZONE_PHASED_OUT
ZONE_LIBRARY
ZONE_GRAVEYARD
ZONE_HAND
ZONE_STACK
ZONE_CEASED_TO_EXIST

Not sure if the guidereveal works ok with those zones thought.
