K, i'm making somehting of an rpg right now that needs lots of weapons, armor etc... each character has one equiped weapon which is represented by a number which is an index reference to a list of items in an ini file.

Now say the character had a weapon represented by the NUMBER 4, well GROUP 4 in the ini file is a pistol. How do i make the computer realize this? In other words how do i import the data from GROUP 4 (the properties of the weapon, attack power etc...) into TGF?

Just in case your wondering, i'm using an ini for character stats, another one as an items list, another as a weapons list, and yet antoher as an events list.

Your life would be easier if you had MMF (list object, fastloop), but since you don't here's all you have to do:

Set group of INI to "GROUP" + Str$(<Value that references the weapon>

(Str$() converts the number to text.)

many of you mmf users seem to think that tgf is uncapable of doing anything and that it has almost no extensions... well that is not true!

I stand corrected then.

In that case its possible to use list object, fastloop, string parser 2 and active picture object to make a very powerful database system for all your items. Im currently workin on an example of one at the moment which I will upload for ppl to see soon.
