THANKS THIS IS GREAT

What's up with it?  Trying to turn 10ks and remainders into a normal numeric value, sometimes it turns 12,292 into several hundreds of million pounds and sometimes it drops the leading 1 and lets them off a whole 10K

What is the x, y expecting?  It is Local var numbers isn't it?  Or is it hoping for temps?  And what is it talking about "amount, multiplier"?   Surely it just wants mod 10k and div 10k

$Money does that, but the guidelines are wrong for $Cash.

I worked out what it is just now.  It needs the lower number variable before the higher numbered variable so eg the 10ks need to be in Local 1 and the mod 10k in Local 0.  Must be passed to the string parser in an array and it pops everything off till it gets to the first one, then can't find the second one.

'the guidelines'? That sounds authoritive.
The Prima Guide for Modders finally out?

I've had to restart my notes from scratch, so any pointers to simantics workings would be very useful.  Smiley

Yes, I copied what I had without editing.  It's a list I have built up over time by pasting odds and ends that other people have posted, as well as the original list we got from that funny Uni site where they were learning Edith.

Thanks for the welcome back, and for the info Inge Smiley
Glad that there's a lot of familiar names still modding.

Did the includes data that used to be at simlogical get bundled into PJSE?
Reading the BHAV's now is *much* easier than I remember it being.

Yup, includes are now distributed with SimPE.  If you use the installer version, you get to tick them if you want them, otherwise in the manual download they are just there after you unpack it.
