This long sought after artifact of unknown power and origin will be coming to a universe near you. It offers sage advice at the shake of your fingertips, but dare not abuse it's power or take it's advice lightly. Do not taunt the Infinity ball... of doom.

I never did much with this, but here's what I did so far. It's still pretty amusing though.

Nice! I always appreciate a good quote randomizer.

Here's one for the 'Gamers' file:

I'm still trying to finish the interface for my new Combat Medic lib file, but this lib will be kind of a what-can-I-do kind of thing. For example, I plan to design it where you have to hold it in order to use it. Only 1 person can hold it at a time. It get's more annoyed the more questions you ask it. It can play tricks on the holder. It remembers previous actions. Someone can take it from you. It can be dropped. It can be picked up. It can transfer directly from one person to another person. The response db and tricks code will be encrypted. You can break the ball. You can fix the ball. It will have a config option for the GM. Generally speaking, I plan to make a roleplaying tool to where it's an actual in-game item.

Funny stuff, but not quite "sage advice".

I knew I was missing something. I should have added quotation marks to "sage advice" to emphasize the humor in the post :lol:

Hmm.. I don't know what that is. Try loading it through your resource library.

It does have a non-basic token type, but that shouldn't effect anything. In fact, it should work just fine without seeing the properties it uses because I use getProperty. If I were to redo the lib, I would put all the scripts in a lib property rather than the speech area. Mostly because it only works when on the current map.

I'm using b84. I tried both dragging from resource library and from windows xp explorer window with no errors.

That may be the problem - I'm using b77 still.

In keeping with the "Way of the Gun" theme:

"The only purpose for a pistol is to fight your way back to the rifle you should have never laid down."

"Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice."

"Knowing is half the battle. The other half is violence."


and, finally,

"I know violence isn't the answer. I got it wrong on purpose."

Okay, that last one isn't really advice of any kind, sage or not. I suppose "Violence isn't the answer...but violence is always an answer" might be more "advice-like." So, here's some more:

"Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory."
"Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make them all yourself."
"The three most useless things to a pilot are the sky above you, the runway behind you, and a tenth of a second ago."
"Flying the airplane is more important than radioing your plight to a person on the ground incapable of understanding or doing anything about it."
