Promise of Bunrei

Postby Takhen » 18 Mar 2013, 17:40

Today, after a certain time of suspension, I tried again to make a card
There must be some other utility or information or way, because I failed again (after some hours of changing text)...
Anyway, this is my current code (the piece will change), if someone can take a look ...

Triggered abilities can't have a COST block unless it is a conditional cost. And COST blocks shouldn't be inside RESOLUTION_TIME_ACTION (where in the world have you seen that? :lol:).
There's a check for Object():GetParent() in the trigger condition, but who's the parent here? This isn't an Aura nor an Equipment.

EDIT: Removed my code because I read the card wrong.

I tried Triggered, Activated, Triggered+Activated...
And used and Equipment trying to keep only the sence "Whenever a creature dies" and add that the creature must be mine

Thank you for the code

Maybe you have some advices after seen how I work? Since now I successully made only very simple cards as Lignify...

There are a few problems:
  • In the TRIGGER you have "if Object():GetParent() ~= nil then", but since this card is not an aura it will never have a parent so GetParent() will always equal nil.
  • In the TRIGGER you should always return something, in yours you only return something if a condition is met, but even if the condition isn't met you should still have a return (even if it is just "return false").
  • In the first RESOLUTION_TIME_ACTION, you declare a cost which you can't do. Inside of *_ACTION tags must be LUA code.

Other than that the rest of the card looks to be done correctly, putting tokens into play looks fine, the check to see if the TriggerObject is a creature looks right, the token reservation looks right, tags look like they are all matched.

Cleaned up code:

A check should be added to make sure the enchantment really was sacrificed as the card states "if you do, (...)" and there is at least one card out there which can prevent you from sacrificing cards. I have not added it since I would need to test it and I'm not at a point where I can load up the game and test it at the moment.

Edit: It should also be noted that for Promise of Bunrei sacrificing the card is not optional it MUST be done.

These are things that do an excellent example of that kind of knowledge I miss...
For example the Parent, it seems easy to understand: now I could think that you said "It isn't Aura or Equipment" because the Parent could be the creature enchanted or equipped
But before you said reading "Parent" meant nothing to me, maybe if I was english it was more intuitive, but I read Parent as "link" so I could think everything, also a link with some function or else...
And I'm forced to ignore some functions in the game, or I should have your programming knowledge before to try and it is too far

Maybe some other information like those, more about the game that the lua language, could be studied by me in some way?

I also thought that the "If you do" meant that it was optional...

It is easy to misread, but:
Whenever a creature you control is put into a graveyard from play, sacrifice Promise of Bunrei.
This sentence says that you must sacrifice it any time a creature you control dies. It has no words in it that allow for you to choose not to.

If you do, put four 1/1 colorless Spirit creature tokens into play.
The "If you do" here is to prevent you from getting tokens if you have something out that prevents you from sacrificing cards. So you can't do something like get infinite tokens by having something that prevents you from sacrificing enchantments then say every time you get a spirit you sacrifice it to something to pump a creature (Bloodflow Connoisseur, Vampire Aristocrat) or as an upkeep (Lord of the Pit, Ebon Praetor). So you can't sacrifice 1 and get 4 infinitely. This is of course the check that is missing from my code because it would need to be tested to make sure it actually works.
