The Dink Network

Thenewguy's Profile

I'm the new guy who comes out of nowhere and tries to do somewhat big things. Well, actually, I'm not so new to Dink. I've even looked at the Dink Network a lot in the past years. But I was always a lurker! But any Starcraft player knows not to underestimate them...

Hmm, I've always just set the sp_active(&current_sprite, 0) or kill_this_task() when done with an event and after setting the editor_type if I don't want to see the script again. If I still need the script to exist to do something later I can just use a global like &story.

if (&story == 1)
{
    //event happens
    //event is done, now kill this script
    &story = 2;
    kill_this_task();
}

//run alternate event
//event is done, now kill this script
kill_this_task();


This method hasn't failed me yet.

Anybody know how this could happen/how to fix it? I'm using scripts from/based on thenewguy's Dink Script Improvement Pack, if that helps.

If it's any reassurance I don't believe I did anything with the editor number or sequence on any of the DSIP scripts. That doesn't mean there couldn't be some kind of incompatibility, though. Let me know if a solution is found.
