Help updating an outdated script mod?
Hello, I found some old mods that need to be updated to the most recent update, but I don't know where to start. I have some prior coding knowledge, but I just need someone to help point me in the right direction with the tools that I need and where to get started.
@dub2k8 visual studio 2019, expertise in c++ to understand older scripts, expertise in c# dotnet for current mods, scripthookvdotnet, NativeUI or newer LemonUI, and finally find some tutorials through Google although most are garbage, so hopefully you're comfortable with the self taught approach. Posts regarding scripting are rarely answered here because the coders are more likely on discord servers.
I remember when i first started out i went on a discord server for help. I posted that i had a fairly simple question but no experience whatsoever. The response i got was, if it's a simple question then answer it yourself. That ahole actually did me a favor, i learned enough to do what i wanted to do almost exclusively by myself.
Good place to start:
You will need to familiarize yourself with the object model, available through intellisense, objects, properties, methods, etc. Native functions, SHVDN functions, scenarios, animations, tasks, etc.
@JohnFromGWN Thanks John. That's what I needed to know!
@dub2k8 glad. If i can help, post here. Im not a programmer but i have considerable experience now, enough to do essentially everything i set out to do although my code is not always elegant, optimized, or by the book.
