Yo guys. Im making an engine that has the character dealing radom damage,
i.e: Level one, he'll deal 1-4 damage, level 2 he'll deal 3-8 damage, so on..

But how could I accomplish this? The radom number generator picks lower numbers, and zeros. (and no, I don't want him to be able to 'miss' lol)

thanks a bunch guys if yall can help.

the command random(x) will pick a number from 0 to x-1. So to get your min/max, you simply use:

random((max - min) + 1) + min

this will generate a number from (min) to (max)


for example:

random((8-3)+1) + 3 will be:
random(6) + 3

Took me awhile to figure it out, so I just copied:
random((max - min) + 1) + min
and put in the numbers!

maybe you could make an equation so it'll be something like

Level * (random(4) +1)

or something. That way you only have 1 line, instead of a bunch of "if level 1, then 1-4, level 2 then bla bla "

You could also use an active object with the right amount of animations and have and event that always sets it to a random direction, but using the random(#) thing in the event editor is MUCH better and easier.
