Hey. I'm PortalGod, and you probably know that already. I recently decided to remake my old Pokemon gamemode from scratch (not that I have a choice, I lost all of the original files). You might remember the old version from this thread. In all honesty, I'm pretty embarrassed of it. Since I'm a perfectionist, I couldn't keep passing by the pokemon folder in my gamemodes folder, and eventually got fed up. Contrary to the last two times, however, I have a (near) full understanding of GLua, and the resources to complete this. I've also decided to start with the harder, behind-the-scenes type stuff first. Unfortunately, this means I have very little to post. The reason I'm creating this thread now, and not when the gamemode is done, if not almost done, is because I want this to be a full log of my development process. So, after that wall of text, here we go.
I'm working on getting all the base information for pokemon, like type and evolutions.
All I have to do now is shove it in a table, and save it as usable data.
Funny story about that, actually: I was using this page
to sort through all the HTML to find the element that had the overview info, and I had to ask my friend for help with regex. He pointed out I could just use this
, and it took 15 minutes to format it into usable code
• Everything but the data
So yeah. Leave any comments, CC, or expectations below, and I'll be sure to think about them.
