inc and dec console commands or math operations

So I realise that Doom 3's console cannot understand math operations. This is a massive bummer, cause I cannot do this:

 

bind = set r_gamma (r_gamma + 0.05)

 

...in order to implement Thief's ability to change gamma on the fly.

 

I suppose ZDoom's console has spoiled me.

 

If implementing basic arithmetic is going to be a tall order, could we at least get inc and dec commands? They would simply inc/dec a cvar by a given parameter.

 

Eg: bind = inc r_gamma 0.05

@all

can we bind a key to execute a script?

how does gamma work in the option guis for gamma, you should be able to add something like that and change it on the fly, as in game or not in game its would be the same.

 

eg stick gui +/- buttons somewhere on main game screen and use them to change gamma. would have to be optional like the other optional things.

What language should scripts be in?

 

scripts use a very simple custom OOP (object oriented programing), c/c++ like, language made by idsoftware called, id script, even tho is a very simple language, is also very powerful, anyone with basic knowledge of OOP and programing can do immense stuff in TDM with it.

Technically scripting is powerful enough to rebuild Doom inside TDM!

You can call me Phi, Numbers, Digits, Ratio, 16, 1618, or whatever really, as long as it's not Phil.

Is technically possible but IMO very very hard, id script language lacks some important things that C/C++ have, arrays is a big one, and those are pretty much required to make any game, technically the vector class (idVec3 in c++) could be thought as a array with three indexes, but you can't do much with it in id script but save 3 float values on it, you can't for example make a vector of 3 objects/entities, pointers is another thing that id script lacks, the $entityname is technically a "pointer to a entity" but its single use is to get entities already spawned in the game nothing else.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.

      Just found out piped.kavin.rocks has a build-in audio-only for video's (great for music video's). Never thought something like this (including browser extensions) excisted. This would have saved me a lot of money on vacation, where I was camping without wifi.
