Vic, really enjoying Case Blue.
Ive never played one of your games before and Im looking for a doc explaining the scripting language. The examples on your blog are great, and the comments in the game scripts themselves are helpful but I was wondering if you had something like a listing of each command, its syntax, what it does, etc?

If you make a copy, we'll use the given historical unit as a template but change its name to number + string. By putting a ',' in the string you can then specify the shortname. The shortname is always number+string. Once set it stays valid till changed or end of event in which it is declared.

146) ExecClearMatrix([AreaSlot #],[Value]) : Sets the specified slot for all hexes to specified value
147) SetUberRegime([ForRegime],[UberRegime (-1=none)])
148) SetCardXY([X],[Y]) : If you are calling a card who needs a hex input. set it with this exec.
149) ExecRemoveTroopsForNextHistorical([Reinforcement group],[Loss %]) : For each event you have to set the loss levels. These values are reset per event. If set any unit added with AddHistorical will suffer these losses.

The tempvar900-999 and tempstring900-999 will be copied to the receiving function and can be altered by it and will be returned back to the calling function. this way you dont have to use gamevars like in ExecExecute.

174) ExecSetHexOwner([X],[Y],[Owner #])
175) ExecRewardPowerOn([X],[Y],[Power Above],[Multi]) : If AI can get more then power above on X,Y coordinate. all pts above this treshold will be multiplied by multi and added to score. This gives AI incentive to get a certain build up here. so it must be able to hold it to get it.. This is only used in Init AI so if you use uberregime only the uberregime needs this setting. This setting is wiped clean after every AI has played. You thus need to set this in early turn event.
176) ExecRemoveunit([Unit #]) : Removes specific Unit
177) ExecSetTurnString([Short String]) : if you set it to '' then it will not overrule the date or round. Keep the string short to make it fit.

192) ExecReloadGraphic([Current filename],[New filename]) : expert use only. part or whole of filename (current filename) is looked for in all loaded graphics and replaced by new filename. use only the filename itself like 'background2.png' for the file to be replaced. use only filename like 'background2b.png' for the string that replaces it.
193) ExecAIProductionResourceComplient() : Will call the AI function that makes sure that production is research complient. If rulevar(875) is active this is called by AI after setting production. However if you script the production with events you might want to call this function add the end of that scripting in some scenarios or give the AI unlimited resources instead.
194) ExecChangeDipOffer([RegimeNr1],[RegimeNr2],[Diplomatic Offer # (0=none or 1=offer)]) : Does not give message. You have to that manually. Sets the offer mode to either 0= cancel offer or 1=give offer

198) ExecClearAllLabels()
199) ExecMutateRandomSFType([People (-1=all)],[Random percentage],[From Sftype#],[Too Sftype# (-1=remove)]) : The random percentage determines ammount of sftype to mutate. After completion sets # of changed individuals in tempvar[999].
200) ExecRemoveTroopsGlobal([SFType group (-1=all)],[People (-1=all)],[Reinforcement Type (-1=all)],[Percentage to remove]) : Remove percentage is not exact in this function... its the chance for each individual that it will be removed. If it is set to 999 empty HQ units will also be removed. If not only empty normal units will be removed.
201) ExecGiveReinforcement2([SFType#],[People#],[Experience],[Multiplier]) : Uses SetCardXY for coordinate to drop troops input.

If instead of percentage you specify -1 your remove specified card if present, if you specifify -2 you remove all deck cards. if you specify -3 you'll remove all hand cards and all deck cards. If you specify -4 you'll only remove the hand card and not the deck card. If specify -5 you will not add any card but if the card is present set its chance to 0%. If -6 then you will also not add a card but if card is present set its chance to 100%.
206) ExecCommanderAddAutoEvent([Unit#],[AutoEvent#],[Percentage Chance %])
207) ExecSetReconUnit([X],[Y],[RegNr],[Recon points]) : Sets recon for this regime only on this hex and all its neighbours up to range. Uses the ammount of recon points the specified unit# has.

210) ExecChangeCommanderSkill2([Historical Unit#],[CombatMod],[MoraleMod],[StaffPts]) : Same as other function. But here the historical unit# instead of the unit# is targeted. And the setting is absolute not +/-.
211) ExecSwitchUnitModel([Unit#],[To Model ID#],[Change name as if new unit 0=no ,1=yes]) : This function will attempt to change the whole historical unit# of unit# to a new model and will implement the changes immediately. A new name will be also be given if specified so.

216) ExecSetUnitCapacityPoints([Unit#],[LandCap Pts +/-],[RailCap Pts +/-],[]) : Allows you to remove or add capacity points to a unit. Use in late turn so the unit Cap point gain has already been processed before use of this exec.
217) ExecRemoveTroopsUnderHistorical([SFType group (-1=all)],[Historical Unit],[Reinforcement Type (-1=all)],[Percentage to remove]) : Remove percentage is not exact in this function... its the chance for each individual that it will be removed. Compared to its namesake exec this one only affects units under command of the historical unit (HQ!) specified. Only units directly under the historical unit are affected and HQs are always excluded. (if you want to set the HQs you'll have to do it manually)
218) ExecSetHistoricalUnitOwner([Old owner #],[New owner #])

This is what halted my efforts to develop a new scenario... map, modded graphics, SFTs and OOB = no problem. Then I opened up the Events and...!!!

I think the ingame documentation is very helpful, though. And most of the execs are self-explanatory. It's just a question of finding what you need mostly.

Had a quick look at the execs and checks but couldn't quite see what I'm looking for. Is it possible to add a breakdown/recombine type of option in the game?

Say you decide to go for a Divisional level mod where basic unit is Divisions for both sides(apart from German/Soviet Mech/Tank units) but you want the Germans to have some kind of breakdown ability for their Infantry Divisions so that they can remove the Division unit and replace it with 3 Rgt sized units.....is this possible?

So it would be play a card - Check strength of unit - remove unit - add to map 3 units each 1/3 strength of 1st unit - card is recycled and available for play next turn?

CHECK reads game state.
EXEC writes game state.
Reverse Polish arithmetic.
Self-documenting functions.

It's easy and very difficult at the same time. You have to just fool around and see what happens basically.

I would have preferred a Python API or something (with proper text editing), but compared to every other wargame out there it's totally stupendous. It's open not closed, and there are no proprietary impediments, just practical ones ;-)

A python API would make me a happy boy..but since this is vb.net even a vb script api would be nice. :) But yea it's a great editor.

I don't think so the limitations are based on the OOB setup. But there is the changel model command which lets you go from 1 OOB to another as long as the 2nd has the same # of parts or more.

So you could in theory have a Corp Unit that is 3 divisions then have the unit change to Regimental so the 3 division would turn into 9 regiments but that is one way you can't go back. Well i mean you could with events but what a pain in the ass it would be.

Four games into the engine we need to start keeping the wiki upto date so we stop asking the same questions.
Let me know if anything needs to be updated or let anyone else with write access to the wiki know.
