Subclassing / modifying chaosUT classes?

Post by 1337GameDev » Wed Jan 19, 2022 10:57 pm

I want to try my hand at some variations in some ChaosUT classes, and see that if I try to build, it cannot find the classes by name in my UC file.

EG:

if I want to subclass "sword" (th bastard sword), UCC complains it cannot find this.

Would I instead need to use "ChaosUT.sword"?

Or would i just need to reimplement?
Or would I have to add chaosUT to my build classes? Wouldn't this cause issues for execution of my code later, where it won't find chaos ut in the "global" or "default" scope when a player has an installation of ut99 from steam/gog?

Just curious on this process / how it builds for the UVM.

All referred stuff must be listed in EditPackages.

I use a separate INI for each of my projects. I assign it in a batch file:

Code: Select all

%UTDIR%\System\ucc.exe make ini=%PROJECT_SRCCODE_MAKEFILE%
Example MAKE.INI for SBSpawnPointV0
Show

Code: Select all

[Engine.Engine]
EditorEngine=Editor.EditorEngine

[Editor.EditorEngine]
CacheSizeMegs=128
EditPackages=UnrealShare
EditPackages=SBSpawnPointV0


[Core.System]
Paths=*.u
Paths=../Maps/*.unr
Paths=../Textures/*.utx
Paths=../Sounds/*.uax
Paths=../Music/*.umx
make.cmd for SBSpawnPointV0
Show
No documentation here; if you need, mention it plz.

  rem Move/copy the compiled version to PROJECT_SYSTEM? Set to "copy", "move" or anything else, if not action should be done. Implies compressing/moving to PROJECT_REDIR.

Does this ucc parameter "merge" with the normal ut ini? Or does it replace it / only the defined ini sections are replaced in the normal ut99 ini?

From my experience only the ini file given via INI=… on the command line is used.
