MAPINFO/Conversation number definition

(New from 2.8.1)

A conversation number definition begins with the keyword “ConversationIDs”, followed by a list of actor names and their assigned conversation numbers. The syntax is as follows:

ConversationIDs
{
  <number> = <class>
}

Conversation number assignments through this method are overridden by the DECORATE one. Actors can be assigned multiple conversation numbers, and already-assigned conversation numbers can be mapped to nothing by passing None instead of an actor class name. They can also be mapped to other actors.

Examples

In this example, actor ByStander is given conversation number 2851 and actor ShopKeeper is given two conversation numbers; 1205 and 3677.

ConversationIDs
{
  2851 = ByStander
  1205 = ShopKeeper
  3677 = ShopKeeper
}


This example clears conversation numbers 2 and 5, which are used in Strife by the weapon smith and medic, respectively, and effectively preventing any conversations from being initiated with them.

ConversationIDs
{
  2 = None
  5 = None
}


This one remaps conversation number 4, which is used in Strife by the armorer, to the weapon smith, and thus making the armorer have the dialogue of the smith. Awkward, but doable nonetheless.

ConversationIDs
{
  4 = WeaponSmith
}
