Extends the max amount of action tests to 32.

can someone give me a noob-friendly explanation to what this does?
has anyone used it and had issues with certains maps etc?


I'd like to add this to my server so I can run Venice and The Port maps. I'll be running my own tests but was just after some feedback from others. Thanks.

In the aiscript for each waypoint, there are blocks of script called action tests. They look similar to this:

Code:
 
action 0 //east tower door
{
node_connect 3 129 true 
node_connect 129 23 true
}
these are executed when an event occurs on the corresponding entity for the action (like a wall being destroyed). Originally, a script could only have 16 of these. Since some larger and more complex maps have been waypointed (and new ways to abuse ETPro map scripting were discovered) it became necessary to have more than 16 action tests. It's a "beta" release, but nothing in there should affect stability of a server.

It has been used by all the waypointers and reportedly by a few others over the last year and a half with no reports of issues specific to it. It is required by dedicated servers, non-dedicated hosts and waypointers on about a half dozen maps so far. Clients as always can be any OS standard plain ET as permitted.

BTW besides allowing waypoints for larger more complex maps it also includes the fix from the earlier experimental flag fix. This changes the behavior of a flag carrier (i.e. the stolen item carrier) so that he does not try uselessly to pick up a second flag that was dropped. This is important in maps like baserace. A cvar ( /g_droppedFlagTime n) is also available to override the time n in seconds that a dropped item remains in the map before it is returned.
