    Is anyone interested in a demo/tut on how to carry over loot?

    I made a real small demo and tut for T2 on how to carry over loot and equipment from one level to the next. This is for FMs where a store just isn't realistic. Like I said it's real small and has a minor catch....
    You need to load the OSM files from missions 14 and 15 of T2. But seeing how adding other script files doesn't harm your FM..I guess it is minor afterall.

    It totally works only a few bugs...

    A few stuff doesn't get transfered over...

    Not sure on the complete list, but I know for sure that holywater potions do not transfer over...

    But it does support triple carry-over!

    I'm using it in my FM1-3 (4) and will be release with my 4mission pack as soon as I get my Aztec warriors, and wavs... Sorry, but I don't have time to make new Aztec voices for the new AI's...

    The carry over of loot is automatic when doing a game pack I believe. As far as equipment carry over..I'm not sure.

    How to Carry over loot and Equipment tutorial
    by: Apache
    Ok this is what was done for this demo. It does help if you already know the basics of how to make a store.
    But I'll go over the basics just in case.
    Create 2 Markers

    One name Store and Add-Inventory-Store and check the box.
    Links all items to buy from the Store to the item with a Contains link.

    One name LoadoutCache Add-S-Scripts : LoadoutCache
    Links items as discribed below.
    ------------------
    First we'll start with the level you are going to carry from we'll call this Miss20, same as
    the demo.
    1. StartingPoint add the normal 'VictoryCheck' script plus 'PlayerTally'
    Links-PlayerFactory, BothLockPicks(not the separate ones)
    physcial-Tulz-LockPick-BothLockPicks(-4281), and extra weapons.
    2. Store
    Links-All items you want available to buy.
    3. LoadoutCache
    Scripts- LoadoutCache
    Links-Sword, BlackJack ,Large & Small Lockpicks, and Compass
    ------------------
    Now the the level you want the stuff carried too..Example Miss21
    1. StartingPoint add the normal 'VictoryCheck' script plus 'Loadup'
    Links-PlayerFactory, LgLockPick, and SmLockPick
    2. NO Store
    3. LoadoutCache
    Scripts- LoadoutCache
    Links-Sword, BlackJack , Compass, and a Special Purse
    4. SpecialPurse
    Add-Difficulty-Script : 0,1,2
    Add-S-Scripts : LastMissionLoot
    ----------------
    Now if you were to go into you 2 pack from DarkLoader you'd notice that only the loot carries over. This is because those extra scripts we added are hard coded into the OSM files of the OM from Thief2.
    So to fix this we need to add those files as well.
    Open your first FM and in the command window type.
    add_script Miss14.OSM
    Next open your second FM and in the command window type.
    add_script Miss15.OSM
    Make sure you save and try it again thru DarkLoader..Tada..It works..Have fun..
    Note make sure you Missflag.str file shows that there are 2 missions to play..Open the one that comes with this demos and see how it is set-up.
