So, recently I got my hands on a copy of visual basic 6. After playing around with it and changing some basic stuffs such as damage formulas and followed a couple of tutorials I would like to get abit more “advanced”, I am still pretty early in the learning curve but I have had some experience with visual basic.net earlier and I’m a pretty quick learner so I don’t think I will have to hard of a time with the stuff I’m thinking about, but before I do this I’d like to know some basic stuff about eclipse first.
Firstly I’d like to know where I change the max level, I have tried looking in the code on my own and tried alot of diffrent possible combinations in the “finder” (CTRL+F) however I haven’t had any luck yet so I wonder if someone could point me in the right direction for this. If possible I would also like to know how I change the exp needed for leveling up.
Secondly I’d like to know if the performance loss would be to great if I would change bytes such as STR, weapon damage and more into longs, if I remember correctly a byte can only contain numbers between -255 to 255 while a long can contain numbers between ca. -30k to 30k but longs will take longer for the computer to work with and it will therefore be some kind of a performance loss. If the performance loss however wouldn’t be to bad I would also like to know where I should change these.
As I am still pretty new to programming overall, as mentioned abow I do have some previous experience with VB.NET but this is really nothing more than first following tutorials and later making my own version of old classics, so please don’t tell me I’m a noob because I can’t figure out how to change the max level or such…
