-Fixed external definitions (warning bug, decompile bug, and interpreting bug)
-Added a warning when multiple headers are used
-Made variables less strict
-Added a GUIQ&A:What version of Python does it need?
- There should be no dependancy, but the code was all written and tested using Python 2.5, and there is no guarantee that it will work with older versions. If PyMS is not working with your version of Python and you can not update to Python 2.5 or the latest version, contact me and i'll be willing to fix any version issues.

What can you do with .dat files?
- The dat files are only used for errors and warnings, to check if a unit is actually a building, or if it has ground/air attacks, etc. It is mostly useless unless you are writing an AI for a mod.

How do the function regular expression search works?
- Regular Expressions are a way to match strings in a dynamic way. Say you want to find the default scripts PMCx, TMCx, and ZMCx. With a normal search you can only search for one of them at a time, but with regex (abbreviation of regular expressions) you can easily find them all at once. Regex is a pretty advanced topic, but it was easy for me to add so I did. Just so you know, for my example these search strings would be valid regex to find all default scripts:

Code: Select all


Code: Select all


Code: Select all


And there are many more ways to do it. For a more in depth explanation you can go here.

What can I do with the add external files function?
- External Definition Files are the PyAI version of unitdef.ini, they are just files with variables only. For an example PyAI comes with the file unitdef.txt, which is the exact same as the unitdef.ini except in PyAI format. You just add one or more of them to the External Definitions dialog, then when you import/export, the variables are available in the code. The in-script way of using external definition files is to use the keyword 'extdef', like:

Code: Select all

extdef unitdef.txt

Code: Select all

extdef C:PyMSunitdef.txt

Just updated PyAI screenshot and added another screenshot of some of PyAI's other windows. Currently whats left:

- Saving custom stat_txt.tbl's [Complete]
- Opening custom stat_txt.tbl's [Complete]
- Finishing off internal things (hotkeys, etc.) [Complete]
- Opening custom units.dat, upgrades.dat, and techdata.dat files [Complete]
- Using external definition files [Complete]
- Possibly a way to save/open custom file settings (which external definition, stat_txt.tbl, units.dat, upgrades.dat, and techdata.dat files to use) [Complete]
- Finding scripts, finding strings [Complete]

All windows that require it (main window, String Editor window, Edit String window, Edit AI Script window, and List Importing) are resizable and save their sizes between uses.


Edit: I guess i should add finding stuff too

I would assume the GUI is still written in Python, and is cross-platform? If so, 1337!

I dont understand what you mean. These are GUI's for two of the programs in PyMS, PyGRP and PyAI, which is a StarCraft modding suite (i guess you could consider it a "toolkit")

PyAI GUI has been pre-released for testing. It still uses Python, so download it if you havn't already (Note: all code was written with Python 2.5, using earlier versions may not work. this will be fixed in later versions). To use it you can either double click on the PyAI.pyw file, or if you would like to catch bugs for me, run it through the command line like normal by navigating to the PyMS folder, then running it like:

Code: Select all

python PyAI.pyw

If you run by double clicking it and there is a bug, you may not notice it but whatever you are trying to do will not happen. If you run it through the command prompt, any bugs will be printed there, and I you should give them to me.

Have fun!

Edit: There were 2 problems found. If you are one of the 3 people that already downloaded it, redownload. If you want to fix the problems yourself do this:
- Open and delete line 813, then 1183, both should be lines that look like:

Code: Select all


- Open PyAI.pyw and change line 2001 from:

Code: Select all

self.edited['state'] = NORMAL


Code: Select all

self.editstatus['state'] = NORMAL

Thanks for this GUI, that's working well for me and I will definitely use it for my new scripts. I have been able to take a script, modify it, compile and test it without having to remember these long command lines :)

I put some errors in my script to see what happened and it identified them when trying to import.

More things that would be cool to have :

- Possibility to keep label names from ScAIEdit scripts.

- Seeing more than 1 error when importing a script. That's just because I'm too lazy to correct, re Import, re corret and so on ... I make many mistakes too :P

Great job

It doesn't seem to work for me.

Code: Select all

laserdude@laserdude-desktop:~/PyMS$ python PyAI.pyw
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "PyAI.pyw", line 2249, in <module>
  File "PyAI.pyw", line 2169, in main
   gui = PyAI()
  File "PyAI.pyw", line 1161, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/lib-tk/", line 1518, in wm_iconbitmap
   return'wm', 'iconbitmap', self._w, bitmap)
_tkinter.TclError: bitmap "/home/laserdude/PyMS/Images/PyAI.ico" not defined

That image appears to be there. My OS is Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy.
