Title: Quick Fix to Vectrosity 5 Custom Action Please?
Post by: memetic arts on September 06, 2017, 07:02:28 PM
Greetings -

As of this old thread, it seems that support for Vectrosity actions has ceased: http://hutonggames.com/playmakerforum/index.php?action=post;topic=1587.45;last_msg=61021 (http://hutonggames.com/playmakerforum/index.php?action=post;topic=1587.45;last_msg=61021)

I've just tried pulling the old actions into a clean 5.6 project with PM 1.8.5, and the only hard error seems to be in the VectrosityProxy action, where there is a reference to VectorPoints, and which was made obsolete in Vectrosity 5. The documentation says:

"VectorPoints is removed. Instead, create a VectorLine and use LineType.Points. Code like this:
   
Code: [Select]
var points = new VectorPoints("Points", linePoints, null, 2.0f);should be:
   
Code: [Select]
var points = new VectorLine("Points), linePoints, 2.0f, LineType.Points);"

I myself am not yet familiar enough with editing actions to take a stab at this, but I'd be most appreciative if, @JeanFabre, you could take a look - would probably take you 5 minutes!  :D

If anyone else can provide a solution, that, of course, would be equally welcome!

Thanks very much!

Hi Jean -

FYI, I've been able to address the issue by handling everything directly through scripts, and have removed the Vectrosity actions, so no need to go out of your way if you have more pressing things to do (which I'm assuming is the case!).

At some point, though, I hope you can make the update! I wish Eric saw that value in this as well.

Thx again,

rr

Hi,

 Cool, If you know how to script you could maybe update the actions? or did you had trouble doing so?

 Bye,

 Jean

Hi Jean -

Yes, I can script (mostly JS, but a little C# as well), but it seems that with the Actions there's more to it than straight scripting. I'd like to learn how to create actions at some point, but as you know, every new little thing is another drop in an already overflowing bucket . . .  :)

We'll see, though . . . would be a good challenge for me . . . possibly closer to the end of the year. . .
