Daspex's Switchable Info Panel + Sandbox + Help Screens (IdolNinjaVersion) Mod

Discussion in 'Mods in Progress' started by daspex, May 1, 2018.

  1. Hi,

    This mod will be made to learn a little bit of lua scripting and stuff like making custom string files and use the mission help table function to get ingame help screens displayed.I allways forget this dammned key combo's for teleporting and stuff so i decided to make a helpscreen mod for this.

    Most time i will spent for creating the text strings but i'm not sure about that.... :)
    Got it to 13 rows finaly thats important cause every combo Letter has 12 teleports..

    After testing many hours i created the first custom string for the Z Button. :)

  2. Great job, I don't have dual monitors so I can't see the text file while playing the game with full resolution, so this will be useful.
     
  3. Yeah,I don't want to use any extras like dual monitor or tablet to look at the help text for the cool stuff in IdolNinjas sandbox + so i thought this has to be made.
     
  4. Well, then thank you for making it.
     
  5. You are welcome.
     
  6. First Version released on this forums SRIV section and Steam Workshop.
     
  7. Strings bundeld.Works like expected.Next update will include it.Seems like it works a little faster with all strings in one file.

    Cycleing for infostrings ready.1=Teleport,2=SpecialCommands,
    3=Cutscenes,4=VanillaCheatCodes,CustomCheatCodes and
    Key"N"= Animations with names displayed are cycleing if Weapon Keys 1-4 or "N" key are pressed multiple times.Adding Cheatcode Infostrings in Progress....

    The gps_plusca.vpp_pc has no strings for name displaying they aren't completed yet...
    But it'll work without it.
    Cool works also with Homies..
