How to section

8 posts in this topic

I apologize if this is the wrong section to ask in advance. I'm looking for a beginners guide to scripting section. What I've seen on exile forums is mostly either A: people asking for help with a particular error their recieving or B: how to information for dedi servers or home servers. I currently use QGS as my host provider and winicp and tcadmin panel.

I'd like some links for basic guides for the extreme beginners like myself if possible. Having someone even explain packing/unpacking a pbo properly would help lol! I seem to make duplicates as I unpack the pbo, open up the actual folder and make edits and then repack the folder. I  still am unsure what I'm doing incorrectly.

ANY links, guides, ect would be greatly appreciated!

@MarvellousOne for your PBO files, are you able to download them to your machine, unpack them in PBOManager, edit, then use it to Repack and upload the new PBO with FTP or something?

Yep I download them, unpack it using pbo manager and the folder it creates is what I edit. Then that folder I repack it using pbo manager and reupload it. I was told tho that I am making duplicates and that's why server crashes or doesn't make the changes. Hope I'm explaining that correctly. I believe I was told I'm making extra .bak files? Or something like that I'm not exactly sure.

The .bak file is just a backup of the ORIGINAL pbo, so that if it didn't work, you can re-upload the original. Perhaps you need to delete the pbo on the server before you re-upload it, as instead of over-writing the file, it's adding a new copy?

To be honest I'm not sure. That's why I want some how to links lol. I'm sure I'm explaining it incorrectly. I believe what I did wrong the first few times was use pbo manager unpack pbo and then repack same pbo? I was told I'd know if I'd done this because there'd be .bak files in my pbo.

Awesome thanks Ka0s.

There is a lot of functions that haven't been covered there, it's pretty out-dated but should get you started at least, and you'll get a basic idea of how it works, I'm not a pro scripter myself, currently working on a ground up CS-GAS script, my tip is basically just try and write something, and test it, if it doesn't work it'll output most of the reason to you.. Debug until it works :ph34r:
