Disable weapons breaking when parrying?

Post by Buckyohare »

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone knew of a mod (or how to change the code somewhere) to prevent weapons breaking when parrying attacks.

I have been playing as a barb, and it's frustrating not being able to parry attacks without the fear of your weapon breaking, as the barb weapons are few and far between.

Thanks for your advice.

Find function Damage.BreakMySword which looks like:

def BreakMySword(EntityName):
if me.InvRight<>"":
Actions.Stop_Weapon (EntityName,"Stop_Weapon")
if Breakings.ExplodeSpecialObject ( me.InvRight , 24000.0)==1:
if Reference.EntitiesObjectData.has_key(me.InvRight):
del Reference.EntitiesObjectData[me.InvRight]
DropInvalidObjectsOnImpact (EntityName)
if me.Data.NPC:
me.Data.ResetCombat (EntityName)

Make it look like:

def BreakMySword(EntityName):
print "no more breaks"
#if me.InvRight<>"":
#Actions.Stop_Weapon (EntityName,"Stop_Weapon")
#if Breakings.ExplodeSpecialObject ( me.InvRight , 24000.0)==1:
#if Reference.EntitiesObjectData.has_key(me.InvRight):
#del Reference.EntitiesObjectData[me.InvRight]
#DropInvalidObjectsOnImpact (EntityName)
#if me.Data.NPC:
#me.Data.ResetCombat (EntityName)

You could edit the tables in Reference.py.

DefaultObjectData['Chaosword']= [OBJ_WEAPON, 5, 0, 2.0, THR_STRAIGHT, [W_FLAG_2W,PI,2000,750,100,100,GolpeArmaEscudoMetal]]

If you change the brk data in the last number (in this case 100 I have highlighted in purple) to 0 you may find the sword will become unbreakable.
I say 'may find' because I'm half-guessing. :roll:

You'll have to do the same to all other weapons you want unbreakable, but I think it's easier than trying to hook into functions.
