Cooperative Linear Games
In some cooperative PC games, players take control of different characters and work together to work to play through a linear, story-based game. These games appear in a variety of gaming genres. For instance, in the role-playing game "Baldur's Gate 2," players could each take control of one of the six characters in the party and play together to fight through the game. The first-person-shooter game "Rainbow 6: Vegas" has a single-player campaign mode that can be played with two players instead if you wish.
Typically, people think of first-person shooters as being games in which players compete against each other or play through a campaign on their own. However, in addition to these common modes, online death matches where people play in teams are a popular mode among fans of the genre. Games like the "Call of Duty" franchise feature a variety of game modes where people can play on cooperating teams. These usually include variants such as capture the flag in addition to the traditional team death matches.
As of June 2011, fewer sports games are coming out for the PC and are focused more on console releases, but some great cooperative sports games are still available on computer. "FIFA 11" is an example of this type of game. In "FIFA 11" players form teams and play online. Play modes are available in which every player on each team is controlled by a real person over a network.
Massively multiplayer online role playing games, or MMOs, are perhaps the ultimate in cooperative computer games. In these games. players join together with other players from all around the world to form small and large groups to fight together for a common goal. People form groups for completing a single mission, which might last an hour or less. They also may form guilds, sometimes with their own websites, dozens of members and an organized structure. Examples of these types of games include "World of Warcraft" and "Lord of the Rings Online."
What is a Console Variable?
Console commands, or console variables, are often known as "CVars" in "World of Warcraft." There are hundreds of these commands, allowing you to configure just about every feature of the game. To access the console variables, you will need to be logged in and controlling one of your characters. Accessing the console is done by simply pressing the forward-slash "/" key followed by the command you want to use.
"timingMethod" is a console variable added in a patch to help improve the performance of the game on computers with multiple-core processors. There are three possible values: 0, 1 and 2. The default setting is 0, but you may experience improved performance if this value is set to 1 or 2.
While the graphical control panel in the game provides everything that most players will ever need, it is possible to further tweak these settings beyond what the sliders in the control panel can reach. Using the "/console farclip" command, followed by a number, will lower the maximum viewable distance, for example. This makes a major influence on performance, although setting it lower than 185 will make the game rather unplayable. Setting it at 0, you won't see the game world at all.
"/console groundeffectdensity" and "/console groundeffectdist" control the amount of objects on the ground in the game (flowers, rocks etc.). The former CVar controls the density of these object while the latter controls the distance at which they are rendered. If you are trying to get the highest FPS, using "/console groundeffectdist 0" is all you need to do. This way, you won't see any of these objects, but the game will look very basic.
Plan the database. Determine the purpose of the database and the information to be input into the database. Decide what specific fields are needed, what types of fields and how the database should look. Think about how the database may be used in the future and who should have access to the layouts, scripts and field definitions.
Select the "File" menu and choose "New Database." If the "FileMaker Quick Start" screen appears, choose "Create Empty Database" and click "OK." Otherwise, the "New File" dialog box will appear.
Type a file name in the "New File" box. Be certain to give it a unique name; otherwise, the file name could overwrite another database. Navigate to the folder where the file will reside. Click "Save." The "Manage Database" box will appear.
Define a field by giving the field a name and determining any applicable options. Specify the field type, such as text or number. While FileMaker Pro will allow changing the type of field at a later date, there are restrictions on the type of information it will retain in the changed field. Continue defining the fields until all fields are entered.
Click "Done" when all fields have been defined. A basic layout with all the fields will appear.
Select "New Record" from the menu. This will create a record to begin input of data.
Plan your FileMaker Pro script as thorough planning will make the process easier. Determine which files, layouts, modes and records will be used. Decide on how to test the script and whether sub-scripts will be used.
Choose "File" menu and select "Manage" and then "Scripts." When the "Manage Scripts" dialog box appears, click "New." The "Edit Script" window will appear. Type a name for the script in the "Script Name" box.
Add each script step in the order it should be performed. Select the steps from the "Steps List" and click "Move." If the step has options to define, it will have a square bracket following it. Double-click on these types of steps and choose "Specify." A dialog box will open where the options can be defined.
Close the "Edit Script" window after adding all the script steps. Click "Save" to save it. Return to the "Manage Scripts" dialog box.
Click "Include in Menu" to include the script in the scripts menu.
Close the "Manage Scripts" dialog box.
Open the FileMaker Pro database file. Use the "Find" command to locate the records to be exported and sort them using the "Sort" command.
Select "File" from the menu and click on "Export Records." When the "Export Records To File" window appears, choose a destination and file name for the exported file. Choose the correct file type and click "Save." If exporting to XML, specify the grammar and any style sheet application. The "Specify Field Order for Export" dialog box will appear.
List the fields in the order to be exported in the "Specify Field Order" box. To include a field, double-click on the field name to move it to the "Field Export Box."
Change the order of the fields in the "Field Export Box" by using the double arrow on the left of the field name and dragging it up or down. Remove a field from the "Field Export Box" by clicking on the field name and then selecting "Clear."
Open the file which contains records to be sorted. Go to "File" and Click open and navigate to the location of the file. Select the file and click the open Button in the "Open File" dialog box.
Go to browse mode, located under "View" on the tool bar.
Select "Records" from the tool bar. Click "Sort Records."
Choose the fields for sorting in the "Sort Records" dialog box. For example, for a mailing, select zip code to arrange the records in zip code order.
Determine the sort order. FileMaker Pro gives the option of sorting the data in a variety of ways, such as ascending order or descending order. Click the sort order desired.
Pick secondary sort fields, if needed. The secondary sort field will sort the duplicates in the primary sort field. For example, when sorting by last name field, a secondary sort field of first name will arrange "Smith" "Bob" before "Smith" "John." Click the sort order for the secondary sort fields.
Click "Sort." The browse screen will appear. After the sort, the status area on the left side will show the records as "Sorted."
Go to the correct layout. The correct layout will contain the field or fields to search on. For example, to find all people with last name "Smith," make sure the layout has a last name field.
Change to Find mode. FileMaker has 3 ways to select modes, from the menu bar under "View," from the pop-up menu on the lower left of the screen or by keyboard command (Control F for the PC or Command F on the Mac). FileMaker Pro will then display a blank layout on the screen.
Place the cursor active in field that contains the criteria on which the search will be performed. For example, to locate someone named Smith, enter the last name field and type "Smith."
Use multiple find requests for more advanced searches. Enter the criteria for the first find. Go to "Requests" and select "Add New Request." A new, blank layout screen will appear. Enter the additional request criteria in the appropriate field of the second find layout. For example, to find records for the last names "Smith" and "Jones," enter Smith in the last name field of the first find request and Jones in the last name field of the second find request. The result will yield records in which Smith or Jones appears in the last name field.
Enter special symbols in find fields when needed. A list of these symbols appears on the Find mode status area. Popular symbols include a symbol to search a range, such as a range of date or values; a symbol for "less than" and "more than;" and a symbol for exact match, which helps to find empty fields.
Put a check in the Omit box when needed. The Omit box will omit from the found set all records that have the criteria in that field. For example, to find records for all states except Mississippi, enter Mississippi in the state field and click the Omit box
Click "Find." FileMaker brings up the records that match the request. This is the found set. The number of records found will be listed on the left status area.
