So I’ve been going at it for a while now, and with (lots of) help from Fietsemaker and Thumbsy I’ve been getting the hang of making scripted files in lua for StepMania and xml for In The Groove now.
I’ve uploaded some templates for typical thing one might want to do to add some spark to their simfiles. These templates by NO means dummy-proof, and will require at least sóme feeling for coding to make the most of it.
In the Template folder there are some topics with example scripts inside them. The .lua files are commented and explained. The .xml files are there to show how to do the same thing in xml. Translating from one to the other will take time, patience and practice but at least there are some examples.
Make sure to read the README files and name all files correctly, as well as paying attention to the song folder layout.
I’ll try to update the templates periodically and add new examples from time to time.
Muchos creditos to Fietsemaker and his seemingly infinite patience!
Disclaimer: I am by no means a great programmer, and though the provided templates all work, I’m sure there would have been a MUCH cleaner or better way to accomplish the same results.
