This was posted on Odinms forum when it was alive!
I thought this could help some people make their own NPCs or
help solve some problems with their NPCs :D

Default Simple OdinMS NPC Editing Commands

As the title says, this is the basics of NPC coding with what Odin currently provides.
If you're not sure how to use these you'll need to fiddle about with the NPCs until you know how to get an NPC up and running. What I've included here shows examples of how each are used, but doesn't state where they should be placed; if you know what you're doing you will know where they should all go.
__________________________________________________ ______________________

Comments

/* This is a multi-line comment. This will not affect the NPC in any way, shape or form.
However it is very useful: If you were to add a comment to the top of every NPC.js file saying who the NPC is and in what Town they appear, you wouldn't get confused by having multiple NPC.js files open at the same time.
*/

// This is also a comment, but used on a single line. This can be very useful as well. For instance, if you had a lot of IDs in the same NPC.js file, you could put a single-line comment after the end of the line to say what the IDs relate to.

Examples:
Code:
/* Lakelis
Kerning City - KPQ NPC
*/

cm.warp(60000, 0); // Warps to Southperry.

Some of the above can be used in IF statements. Here is an example of the Thief 1st Job Advancement:

Code:
if (cm.getJob().equals(net.sf.odinms.client.MapleJob.BEGINNER)) {
if (cm.getLevel() >= 10 && cm.getChar().getDex() >= 25) {
cm.sendNext("So you decided to become a #rThief#k?");
} else {
cm.sendOk("Train a bit more and I can show you the way of the #rThief#k.")
cm.dispose();
}
} else if (status == 1) {
cm.sendNextPrev("It is an important and final choice. You will not be able to turn back.");
} else if (status == 2) {
cm.sendYesNo("Do you want to become a #rThief#k?");
} else if (status == 3) {
if (cm.getJob().equals(net.sf.odinms.client.MapleJob.BEGINNER)) {
cm.changeJob(net.sf.odinms.client.MapleJob.THIEF);
cm.sendOk("So be it! Now go, and go with pride.");
cm.dispose();
}
}
}
Breaking this section of code apart line by line will show you some examples of how some of these NPC-related commands can be used:


__________________________________________________ ______________________

MapleJob.[Job]

These can be used with the MapleJob. statements:
BEGINNER
WARRIOR
FIGHTER
CRUSADER
HERO
PAGE
WHITEKNIGHT
PALADIN

DARKKNIGHT
MAGICIAN
FP_WIZARD
FP_MAGE
FP_ARCHMAGE
IL_WIZARD
IL_MAGE
IL_ARCHMAGE

BOWMASTER
CROSSBOWMAN
SNIPER
CROSSBOWMASTER
THIEF
ASSASSIN
HERMIT
NIGHTLORD
BANDIT
CHIEFBANDIT

Example:



These can be used to easily code a Job Advancing NPC.
__________________________________________________ ______________________

NPC Text Commands

#b = Blue text.
#c[itemid]# Shows how many [itemid] the player has in their inventory.
#d = Purple text.
#e = Bold text.
#f[imagelocation]# - Shows an image inside the .wz files.
#g = Green text.
#h # - Shows the name of the player.
#i[itemid]# - Shows a picture of the item.
#k = Black text.
#l - Selection close.
#m[mapid]# - Shows the name of the map.
#n = Normal text (removes bold).
#o[mobid]# - Shows the name of the mob.
#p[npcid]# - Shows the name of the NPC.
#q[skillid]# - Shows the name of the skill.
#r = Red text.
#s[skillid]# - Shows the image of the skill.
#t[itemid]# - Shows the name of the item.
#v[itemid]# - Shows a picture of the item.
#x - Returns "0%" (need more information on this).
#z[itemid]# - Shows the name of the item.
#B[%]# - Shows a 'progress' bar.
#F[imagelocation]# - Shows an image inside the .wz files.
#L[number]# Selection open.
\r\n - Moves down a line.

(If you know of any others, please tell me).

Example on using #f and #F (credits to Rozene for the code + pic):
Code:
#fUI/UIWindow.img/QuestIcon/3/0# = Select Item #fUI/UIWindow.img/QuestIcon/4/0# = Reward!! #fUI/UIWindow.img/QuestIcon/5/0# = Question Mark Box #fUI/UIWindow.img/QuestIcon/6/0# = Fame #fUI/UIWindow.img/QuestIcon/7/0# = Meso #fUI/UIWindow.img/QuestIcon/8/0# = EXP. #fUI/UIWindow.img/QuestIcon/9/0# = Pet Closeness

__________________________________________________ ______________________

Selections[Job]

Selections can be used in NPC conversations. For example, when Dark Lord asks you if you want to become an Assassin or a Bandit, that window includes selections.

Selections can be made using #L followed by the selection number (starting at 0), followed by another #, then [selection text], then #l to end the selection. They are most commonly used with cm.sendSimple windows.

Example:
Code:
cm.sendSimple("Which would you like to become? #L0#Assassin#l #L1#Bandit#l");

However, this would look quite unprofessional as both the selections would be on the same line.

To fix this you can use \r\n (new row) and add some text formatting to your script (see above for NPC Text Formatting). With these, you could make:

Code:
cm.sendSimple("Which would you like to become? #b\r\n#L0#Assassin#l\r\n#L1#Bandit#l#k");

--

To then put the selections in to action, you'd need to start a new status, adding the following IF statement within:
Code:
if (selection == 0) {
cm.sendNext("Are you sure you want to become an Assassin?");
} else if (selection == 1) {
cm.sendNext("Are you sure you want to become a Bandit?");
}
Et cetera...


Now go on and make your own custom NPC!

Re: [Guide] Default Simple OdinMS NPC Editing Commands

Great guide .
Was looking for this guide ever since odinms shutted down .
Can i ask a question ?
With regards to the PVP map , i made 6 maps .
With level limitations .
I succeeded in 2 parts of the code which is to limit people with certain level to enter certain map .

But i got a problem .
I want a map to be free from lvl 50 to 150 .
How do i make it so ?

Code:
cm.getLevel() <= 50 && >=150 && cm.warp (mapID);
I know this command is wrong .
So can anyone guide me along ?

You'd have to do an if statement. So when you're specifying which map they'd go to, in that you just add another if statement. I haven't done NPCs for a while but off the top of my head something like:

Code:
if (cm.getLevel() =< 50 && cm.getLevel() >= 120) {
cm.warp(mapID);
cm.dispose();
}

Substitute if for else or else if depending on where you put it in your script.
Your problem was that you needed to repeat cm.getLevel, and that it needed to be done as an if statement.

Re: [Guide] Default Simple OdinMS NPC Editing Commands

This guide was posted along time ago, but I guess it got removed.
Nice job reviving it.

The poster probably wont know much about the actual commands and NPCs, so I wouldnt ask. :p

=< is not an operator but <= is.

Re: [Guide] Default Simple OdinMS NPC Editing Commands

ok you told:
sendYesNo
Shows a conversation window with a 'Yes' and 'No' button, 'No' ends the conversation unless otherwise stated.
How to use: cm.sendYesNo("[text]");

this is easy to understand but after thats?
the code would be like:

cm.sendYesNo("[text]");
ifYes
cm.warp(60000, 0); // Warps to Southperry
ifNo
cm.dispose();

i know im wrong but thats what is need to know xD how to make
what it will do when you click Yes or No

the guide is really nice exept its missing basical thing on How to make a custom npc

Re: [Guide] Default Simple OdinMS NPC Editing Commands

Is there a cm. command for making NPCs summon monsters? It would make sense...

EDIT: Never mind, found it in a reactor file:

Code:
rm.spawnMonster(monster_id,amountofmonsters);
