• It seems that negative value (-5 for example) or float value (0.3 for example) will make strange things...

Well, the example is geared towards whole numbers, which is what you would normally want (and I guess you don't want it to actually have 0.6 or negative damage displayed).

This means you need to clamp the result of your calculation so it can't go below 0 and also round it in order to get whole numbers. Or floor/ceil it, depending on how you want it to behave. Check out the math expressions in the wiki.

• Floor, Ceil, and I think you can use int, which will convert and float value to a integer.

• Thanks to both of you

• Don't mean to raise the topic again. But, I have a question. I don't if anyone here has played disgaea. In disgaea, damage over 99,999 is display in 3 digits, with a K at the end of the number.

K=1000. 123,145 / 1000 = 123k. Like that. Over 100millionm is displayed by a "M". 100M = 100,000,000. So basically, I want to do something like that.

• [quote:2ll78eyg]Left(string, N)

Returns a string with the left N characters of string, eg. Left("Hello", 2) gives "He"

That with a few subevents should work.

-if damage is greater than 1000 set text to left(variable "damage",3)&" k"

--if damage is greater than 1000000 set text to left(variable "damage",9)&" m"

• Would that only worked with text-base numbers instead of sprite-based ones?

• The text object is pretty good about doing the conversion, but you can always use str(), or int(), if need be.

• What using sprite-based ones? Like in the example in this thread.

• That would be the variable, like:

If round(((Hero.Value('Power')*1.2)-Enemy.Value('Resist')+random(15))*global('Factor'))+1 is greater than 1000000

Set your sprites to

left(str(round(((Hero.Value('Power')*1.2)-Enemy.Value('Resist')+random(15))*global('Factor'))+1),9))&" M"

Or what ever your using for m.

• Must be doing something wrong.

I'm not understanding much. I'm not using text in any fashion.

Look in stats for the damage stuff.

Baddies and Bosses for the damage dealing

• Sorry I cant seem to open your cap. Its pretty odd It says the cap uses "Colored Outline. Fx", and cant be located, but I clearly have the fx, and it's working for me.

I guess either you version is different, or mine is corrupt somehow.

Either way I mean use the value you use to set the frames. Strings are usually converted.

I was just using the text object as an example.

• Oh, I just renamed "Colour" to "Color". You must have the one with the original name.
