Random Objects

smartguy240 I was playing KQ3 and I noticed the squirrels and stuff that randomly appeared on the screen and I thought WOW :o ! I wish I could put that in my game!

Does anyone know how to do this? :D ;) :)
AGI1122 Easy, use the random command and make it so that if it generates a certain number then draw the things that need to be drawn on the screen.

If you would like a more in depth explanation of this just ask.
sonneveld random(n,m,k)

where variable k is assigned a number between the range of n to m.

So if you want to display monkeys on the screen 30% of the time.. you could do something like this:

if (newroom) {
random(0, 100, v100);
if (v100 < 30)
//load, draw, display, animate monkeys

smartguy240 So is v100 just like saying it is this much percent or is v100 a variable ???
AGI1122 useing the code above v100 will be set to a number from 0 to 100. and if v100 is less than 30 then it will animate monkeys.... I thought this was funny. :)
Joel yeah, to clear that up...it doesn't have to be v100...if you put v145 instead of v100 in the code above, then v145 will be set to a value between 0 and 100
sonneveld sorry.. bad example
AGI1122 No, it was a good example, but you didn't really show him what each part did, that is why he got confused.
sonneveld I meant having 100 and v100 together.. i mentioned the syntax for random at the start i thought.

thanks though.
