Ruleset list order for TFTD
« on: December 01, 2016, 06:16:55 pm »
Someone has seen maybe ruleset list order not for xcom1 (like https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Ruleset_List_Order_(OpenXcom)), but for TFTD?

No way I'm doing this again. :P But if anyone wants to, just check the original ruleset and the item order there - it should start with 100 and each new one increases the number by 100.

You somehow did it automatically, didn't you? :P

Hey! It's hard work to learn how to do things efficiently! And while you do that learning, you're not doing any actual work either (or might be doing work slower than the brute force...). Well done Meridian!

Now Solarius, if you want to make yourself useful, go and put it up on the wiki. We'll appreciate the hard manual work involved, I promise!

Sometimes difficult-looking things are easy...
... and easy-looking things are close to impossible.

But yeah, I wrote about 30 lines of code, give or take, to produce this output.

I think "ruleset reference" page is more complicate to rewrite. But as i see, there is not much differences between xcom1 and tftd in this part. Things like "projectile type" etc are the same. Just other names (laser-gauss, etc). Am i right?

xcom and tftd use identical ruleset (values might have different translations where applicable, but names and types are the same), no need for separate pages... nightly ruleset reference would deserve an update tho, it's pretty outdated

Burn! :P

I wish I could, but I would have to crack the problem on how to convert it from .txt... And I totally forgot how Excel did column separation. I remember it was stupid. :P

Put commas where you want column breaks (replace all helps), rename file to .csv, import to excel?

2/ or replace the spaces with tabs, put into clipboard and paste into excel

3/ or just copy into excel, select first column and click on "text to columns" icon and use a wizard

PS: ...and that's what happens to you kids, when you stop coding... you start using excel :/ how did this happen to me?
