Variables

There are many types of variables
int
double
float
char
and many more. an INT variable can't have numbers such as .9, while double and float can both contain .9 numbers.
Char variables contain text. You can use these variables by either making them in Global code, or by clicking "Variables" located when making a script.
Code: Select all
int variable;
double variable;
float variable;
char variable[255];

As you can see, the char variable is a bit different, char variables use either a * before the name, or a [number] after the name, this means that the text can only contain 255 characters in that variable. A * can contain infinity.



Adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing

Too add, subtract, multiply, or divide a variable, you will have to use these symbols
+ - * /
+ is add, - is subtract, * is multiply and / is devide
In a script, it would look like this
Code: Select all
y = y + 1;
y = y - 1;
y = y * 1;
y = y / 1;

How do I create a variable that dosn't go below 0?
If you wan't to make a variable that dosn't go below 0, then you have to make a script that prevents it from subtracting ocne it reaches 0. This can be done using this method
Code: Select all
if (variable>0)
{
variable  = variable - 1;
}

When the variable reaches 0, it will stop subtracting

Nice :D

Hblade wrote:the text can only contain 255 characters

In that case, you should write
Code: Select all
char variable[256];

instead of
Code: Select all
char variable[255];

[0] to [254] used for the 255 characters, and the last [255] used for the string termination :D
