Generating a batch of random levels

Postby kaoD » Fri Jun 10, 2011 7:05 pm

Is there any way to generate a batch of random levels using the Frozen Synapse console? I can run several calls using for loops, but I don't know how to create the levels. I took a look at some functions and found out that Encounter objects have a saveEncounter method that can save the encounter to a file, but how can I easily create these objects? I found a very handy method, generateSkirmish() but it creates Ecnounters for AI single player games, and I need it to play online. Is there a counterpart for this for online games?

I know it's a strange question and probably will not be answered, but who knows :P

You can use those to play Extermination online, or you can generate as many MP levels as you want with the level generator in create a game > advanced setup.

After you read the Official Manual, check Frozen Synapse's Tactics & Strategy Guide, go further with the Advanced Mechanics for Multiplayer and beat all SP missions with the Campaign Walkthrough • Read the latest News

I want it for a tournament generator tool that sends the matches to the server automatically and tracks the results, so I would need all kind of game modes. Is there no other way?

With advanced setup you have all game modes, but there's no way from the GUI to send and track games.
I don't know about hidden console commands.
A tournament feature was supposedly going to be added 3 weeks after release.
