Updated my video drivers, and FNV didn't implode.
Performance seems somewhat improved; but I haven't logged enough time to comment on crashes.
So, being unable to sleep, I decided to work a bit on the sorter scripting. Got the reloading sorter repaired, made a couple additions to the general sorter; and finally started on the survival sorter.
Therein lies our problem this morning.
This time, the editor wouldn't take any more lines at 674; and near half of those are partially finished lines (I copy in the Refname.RemoveItem line, and then just go back through and add in item names).
So, it looks like one of three things has to happen:
1) Axe the sorter completely. Don't tempt me.
2) Cut half the frankly stupid number of consumables out of the sorter. This will result in endless bitching, and the eventual implementation of #1.
3) Chain two quests and scripts together, and make them run in sequence when the sort order is given. More work, more opportunity for problems, and no one is likely to ever notice beyond bitching that I didn't leave the correct number of item X in their inventory? Where do I sign?!
Finished the split-script. Ye Gods that crap was a lot of work. I ended up having to write the whole mess in Wordpad, then copy as much as it would let me into the first script; then move the remainder into the second. The dialogue command initiates the first script, the first starts the second before shutting itself off.
Will it work? I have no fucking idea. I'd say yes -- there's no reason it shouldn't -- but I've seen plenty not work that 'should have' in this game. I put nothing past this iteration of the engine.
Total number of lines for all three sorters: 1317. That doesn't count the retrieval scripts; just the ones that put items into categorized containers.
This also doesn't cover armor, weapons, or ammo. I figured trying to sort those would be a hornet's nest -- no matter which I picked, I'd end up pulling stuff one player or another was trying to use; without invoking NVSE (which didn't go so well last time).
I think I'm getting RSI again...
