Start Scripting AMX MOD X


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 I am glad you asked about this . I just have one small correction, it's not AMX, it's actually AMXX, there is a big difference between them.


First before even thinking of starting scripting plugins, i advise you to learn the pawn syntax. What I mean by that is that you understand all the functionality of the pawn scripting language, learning its basics such as variables, loops... etc. If you wish to learn that, please visit this linkhttps://wiki.alliedmods.net/Introduction_to_Pawnand https://wiki.alliedmods.net/Pawn_Tutorial



After that you might wanna learn how to compile a plugin (this is a stupid suggestion since most people know how, but anyway), because if you code a plugin but you don't know how to compile it, then its not going to work, please visit this link:https://wiki.alliedmods.net/Compiling_Plugins_%28AMX_Mod_X%29



Now you might wanna learn a very brief introduction to AMX MOD X scripting, please visithttps://wiki.alliedmods.net/Intro_to_AMX_Mod_X_Scripting


Cvars are a very importing thing in AMX MOD X plugins. It allows to turn off/on the plugin or any separate functions inside it. You wanna learn that too, check how herehttp://wiki.alliedmods.net/Scripting_Cvars_(AMX_Mod_X)



Optimizing your code is crucial. Witch one would you pick if you had two plugins that does the same job but one does it better and/or does more efficiently? I am pretty sure I don't have to answer that. So head on herehttps://wiki.alliedmods.net/Optimizing_Plugins_(AMX_Mod_X_Scripting)


There are lots of other great wikis in the AMX MOD X scripting wiki pagehttps://wiki.alliedmods.net/Category:Scripting_(AMX_Mod_X)


I also would like to give you thishttp://www.amxmodx.org/funcwiki.php?go=all_func(not working anymore, just check the .inc files, it has all the functions you need)

This is a list of all the present functions in AMX MOD X that you can use. These functions allow you to do special things, for example: cs_set_user_deaths() allows you to set a user a specified deaths amount, and so on.


This topic has almost all the tutorials for several things that you might want to dohttp://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=172936


Just a small note before I end here: don't expect to start making some huge plugins like GunGame or JailBreak in a matter of weeks, but at least you will get there eventually, I hope .

One more thing, when starting as a new coder, I advise to look at other plugins that do a similar job to what you are trying to accomplish, it will make your life easier, and it would be better if you edit other plugins to do what you want them to do instead of starting from scratch, just don't forget to give credits where you have to .


Hope this helped!
