How easy is it to convert a 0.3 Squirrel script to 0.4?
« on: March 17, 2016, 05:35:00 pm »
I've not taken a look at scripting in 0.4, because I don't have time to start again. I'm wondering, though, how easy is it to migrate a 0.3 script to 0.4?

That would take little to no effort.
Though, it is still preferable to make a brand new script so that you can integrate 0.4s new features.

Converting is easy.
You just need to change some parameters to left and some to right and stuff like that.

Hmm. I wonder if there would be any interest in an XE revival.

It doesn't use squirrel, is made by a VC:MP developer and doesn't use any new 0.4 features when it first went public. I don't think you can compare LW with any other server that converted to 0.4...
