Hey, Feel free to read this if you need it, but keep the flaming to a minimum ^_^ this is my first guide, And SaintsIan Taught me some of my JS and helped me correct my scripts

and for future reference, Else means if the first if statement is false, and if statements are listing if a situation is true or false, and No its not boolean

So here i go!
Code:
/*
@    Author : Snow
@
@    NPC = NAME
@    Map =  MAP
@    NPC MapId = MAPID
@    Function = Rebirth Player
@
*/

var status = 0;

function start() {
    status = -1;
    action(1, 0, 0);
}

function action(mode, type, selection) {

         
         if (mode == -1) {
        cm.dispose();
    
    }else if (mode == 0){
        cm.sendOk("Ok, talk to me when your sure you want to #bRebirth#k.");
        cm.dispose();

    }else{            
        if (mode == 1)
            status++;
        else
            status--;
        
                 if (status == 0) {
        cm.sendYesNo("Welcome, great hero. You have been through a long and challenging road, and you have become immensely strong. If you bring me a Maple Coin,I can use my magic to increase your power even further, and surpass your limits! You will become a level 1 Beginner again, but you will keep your stats the same and all the Skill in you Hot Keys. Do you wish to be reborn? #b(Note: Please Make Sure you Have Room for all your Equipment in your Inventory. Also Make Sure you use all your SP. As it won't Be useable in your next Job. )#k" );
        }else if (status == 1) {
        if(cm.getChar().getLevel() < 200){
        cm.sendOk("Sorry, You have to be level 200 to rebirth.");
        cm.dispose();
        }else{
        cm.sendOk("#bGood-Job#k, you have qualified for a #eRebirth#n.");
        }
         }else if (status == 2) {
        cm.getChar().levelUp();
        cm.unequipEverything()
        cm.changeJob(net.sf.odinms.client.MapleJob.BEGINNER);
        cm.sendNext("Enjoy your rebirth!(Note: You will have to Change Channels For the Full Effect to Take Place.");
        cm.getChar().setLevel(2);
        cm.dispose();
        }            
          }
     }
Credits to ryoku for making the script,

Now for the actual explaining part xD

Code:
var status = 0;
This little segment here states the variable in the script, so whenever you see status it will represent 0 so if i wrote
var poop = 24; then whenever i used poop in the script it would represent the number 24. ill go into that further on

Next!

Code:
function start(){
         status = -1;
         action(1,0,0);
}
What i believe this means is that the status begins at -1, so the script is starting the script with a status of -1 and the action is stated with this part of the script
Code:
function action(mode, type, selection) {
so that means that (mode, type, selection) is equivelent to (1,0,0) which states that mode is used here so if i wanted to used selection i assume it would be (0,0,1)

Next!

Code:
if (mode == -1) {
              cm.dispose();
this is exiting chat, using the bottom left corner of chat, leave option or pressing esc

Next!

Code:
}else if (mode == 0){
           cm.sendOk("Ok, talk to me when you're sure you want to be #bReborn#k.");
           cm.dispose();
this is the No selection of the sendYesNo part of the script, and to make this a bit less confusing ill point out that these come before the actual YesNo part of the script due to the fact that the script goes from lowest to highest, so mode couldnt just go from 3 - (-1) right? that wouldnt make much sense

Next!


Code:
 }else{
               if (mode == 1)
                    status++;
                       else
                     status--;
                    
                      if (status == 0) {
                 cm.sendYesNo("Hi i'm Mr.Pickall Blah Blah);
this little segment kept me confused for a whole 3 minuites! so lets start with mode, since we just finished doing the No selection part of the script, this is most likely the Yes! so if mode == 1 (yes). Remember back in the beginning of the script the function stated status to start -1? well this is where this part comes in
Code:
status++;
This means status + 1 basically, so if we have a status of -1 and we add 1 to it, then status then becomes 0.. its simple math, therefore thats where the If statement makes sense if (status == 0);, im not too positive about the status++ or status-- but most the scripts ive looked at it seems that way, now the status-- is confusing me, if you know please post below and i will credit you for the info,

Next!

Code:
}else if (status == 1) {
        if(cm.getChar().getLevel() < 200){
        cm.sendOk("Sorry, You have to be level 200 to rebirth.");
        cm.dispose();
        }else{
        cm.sendOk("#bGood-Job#k, you have qualified for a #eRebirth#n.");
        }
right so this little part is choosing yes but if u notice
Code:
 if(cm.getchar().getLevel() < 200){
that checks level, so lets bring back to math <,>,= is a comparison Correct? right so if we do 2 > 3 thats false because that means 2 is bigger than 3, you get the picture so if Level < 200 which is minimum level for rebirth, and the else statment just tells you that you qualified.

Code:
}else if (status == 2) {
        cm.getChar().levelUp();
        cm.unequipEverything()
        cm.changeJob(net.sf.odinms.client.MapleJob.BEGINNER);
        cm.sendNext("Enjoy your rebirth!(Note: You will have to Change Channels For the Full Effect to Take Place.");
        cm.getChar().setLevel(2);
        cm.dispose();
        }            
          }
     }
This part is after the sendOk was sent, it Levels you up to 1, unequips everything, makes you a beginner and ends the script!

hopefully this was helpful, Please PLEASE tell me if i made a mistake somewhere or you need clarification on something, ill be sure to give you credits

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


     Code:
     if (cm.[B]getJob[/B]().equals(net.sf.odinms.client.MapleJob.BEGINNER)) {
        if (cm.[B]getLevel[/B]() >= 10 && cm.[B]getChar[/B]().[B]getDex[/B]() >= 25) {
            cm.[B]sendNext[/B]("So you decided to become a #rThief#k?");
        } else {
            cm.[B]sendOk[/B]("Train a bit more and I can show you the way of the #rThief#k.")
            cm.[B]dispose[/B]();
        }
} else if (status == 1) {
    cm.send[B]NextPrev[/B]("It is an important and final choice. You will not be able to turn back.");
    } else if (status == 2) {
        cm.[B]sendYesNo[/B]("Do you want to become a #rThief#k?");
    } else if (status == 3) {
        if (cm.[B]getJob[/B]().equals(net.sf.odinms.client.MapleJob.BEGINNER)) {
            cm.[B]changeJob[/B](net.sf.odinms.client.MapleJob.THIEF);
            cm.[B]sendOk[/B]("So be it! Now go, and go with pride.");
            cm.[B]dispose[/B]();
        }
    } 
}[/CODE 
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:

     Quote:
                                                     [SIZE=1]if (cm.[B]getJob[/B]().equals(net.sf.odinms.client.MapleJob.BEGINNER))  {
if (cm.[B]getLevel[/B]() >= 10 &&  cm.[B]getChar[/B]().[B]getDex[/B]() >= 25) {
cm.[B]sendNext[/B]("So you  decided to become a #rThief#k?");
} else {
cm.[B]sendOk[/B]("Train a bit  more and I can show you the way of the  #rThief#k.")
cm.[B]dispose[/B]();
}
} else if (status == 1)  {
cm.send[B]NextPrev[/B]("It is an important and final choice. You will not  be able to turn back.");
} else if (status == 2) {
cm.[B]sendYesNo[/B]("Do  you want to become a #rThief#k?");
} else if (status == 3) {
if  (cm.[B]getJob[/B]().equals(net.sf.odinms.client.MapleJob.BEGINNER))  {
cm.[B]changeJob[/B](net.sf.odinms.client.MapleJob.THIEF);
cm.[B]sendOk[/B]("So  be it! Now go, and go with pride.");
cm.[B]dispose[/B]();
}
}  
}[/SIZE]

cm.[B]sendNext[/B]("Hi, GM!");
}                                 
These  can be used to easily code a Job Advancing  NPC.

@ gtx911 and chuayaowei
Good job as all you 2 say. Say WHY it is or something else, quit trying to up your post count.
Nice for people who don't know how to read JAVA, I've been able to read it without even knowing what the hell JAVA is, sort of common sense...

That would be great ^^! Im just tryin to learn to make commands and notices and u know all the basics. If some1 would create a guide like that a lot of more servers would be more customized and maybe ppl would end the "RRR" (Repack Release Rampage) in the release section.

Re: [Guide]How To Analize NPC Scripts

yea, but this was with certainty on my ability to give a basis on analizing the script was good enough to make a guide, my java skills are quite down the drain ^_^

and do u want the old or new command system?

Re: [Guide]How To Analize NPC Scripts

the new and old command system are different in a way

so it would make sense to clarify
